‘Tis the season for planting our little garden around here. I usually kill everything – except mint, that stuff grows out of concrete! – but I still try for a small garden every year.

This year we have some tomatoes, cilantro, and basil. I always plant basil, even though the bugs usually get to it and the leaves end up full of holes. Not very pretty, but perfect for using for pesto.

Elle had never tried pesto before, but since she loves pasta I grabbed a fresh basil plant at Meijer (while we wait for ours in the garden to grow) and whipped up a batch of this homemade Fresh Basil Pesto for an easy pasta dinner.

It is finally starting to feel like spring here in Ohio. I’m pretty sure the last snowfall of the season is behind us – even though it was just last week. Elle did get a calamity day out of it because the snow was so heavy it knocked out power in various parts of the city.

Everything is finally starting to green up and heck, we even have a bunny nest in our backyard. And if a cute, fluffy mama bunny doesn’t scream spring, I don’t know what does.

Another great thing about spring is that my local grocery store is brimming with sweet, fresh berries that actually taste good. Every week we load up on strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and Elle’s personal favorite – blackberries. All of which are absolutely perfect for this simple Berry Crisp.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake is one delicious way to treat yourself to dessert. This classic pound cake is one to make all year round.

Two white plates with slices of cream cheese pound cake garnished with whipped cream and fresh berries

Pound cake. For some reason, every single time I think of pound cake I think of little old grandmas and Sara Lee. Why?

I have no idea, it’s just a thing. I also don’t make a lot of pound cake.

Not that I have anything against it, it just always seemed kinda mundane to me next to the best chocolate cake or pumpkin crunch cake. If your thoughts on pound cake are at all similar to what mine were, allow me to change your mind.

This Cream Cheese Pound Cake will open up a brand new world of pound cake consideration and will literally have you secretly escaping to the kitchen to nibble on it.

Potato chip in a bowl of french onion dip

One thing in my life that I am super particular about when it comes to food is chip dip – more specifically French Onion Dip. I’m not super picky when it comes to the dippable items. Basically just give me a chip, but I am a total chip dip snob.

When I was a kid, I fell pretty hard for the French Onion Dip at a local carry out in my hometown and now as an adult, I’ll drive miles to pick up that chip dip over just grabbing a name brand from the grocery store.
