I was recently reminded that the first time I made these cookies, Elle was only 6 months old.

Now she’s 8. 8 years old! Time is a thief. 

As this school year comes to an end, I am determined to embrace every moment I can of this summer with her. I know I’ll blink and she’ll be grown, but these slow summer days are full of memories we can make together.

But don’t mind me if you find me eating some of these soft lemon ricotta cookies and weeping over her 6-month photos in the meantime.

As a food blogger, I try to provide my readers with great recipes that have been tested thoroughly in my kitchen.

However, sometimes a recipe that worked well for me turns out a little less than perfect for a friend or reader.

Whenever my friends ask me why something didn’t turn out right – whether it’s my favorite chocolate chip cookies, the best chocolate cake, or homemade Bisquick, typically the first question I ask is, “How did you measure the flour?”

For years I thought dipping the measuring cup directly into the flour sack was an accurate means of measurement. However, when I started to teach myself how to bake – I realized this method can be pretty inaccurate.

Summer weather makes me crave all kinds of summer potluck foods.

You know what I’m talking about. Big tables filled with summer salads, baked beans, sweet corn, fresh watermelon, pitchers of strawberry lemonade, and plenty of no-bake desserts.

It’s the kind of food you dream about during those dreary late-winter days when you think the snow will never end.

But that hot weather is finally here and with Memorial Day right around the corner, I’m planning all of my favorite cookout foods, starting with this easy potato salad recipe.

It seems like lately I have had a lot of people around me who need some cheering up. I don’t know what’s in the air these days, but it feels like everyone has had something going on.

One of the easiest ways for me to spread some love is by sharing baked goods. And quick breads are always a hit!

Sometimes I will make a big batch of quick bread and freeze a few loaves, that way I have something on hand that I can pull out and take to a friend or neighbor when they are sick, have just had a baby, or simply need a pick-me-up.

Lately, this chocolate bread has been one of my favorite pick-me-up recipes. It’s super rich and decadent and makes you feel better with just one bite.

We’re in that home stretch of the school year when it feels like there is something going on every single day.

Special lunches. Recitals. Karate tests. Field days. The list goes on and on.

By the time we get to dinnertime, we either barely have time to eat before we have to get to the next thing, or I’m so drained I don’t really want to think about cooking.

On nights like this, it’s a “sliders to the rescue” kind of dinner.

Sometimes we turn to our favorite Ham and Cheese Sliders. Sometimes it’s Cheeseburger Sliders. Lately it’s been these incredibly easy Pizza Sliders.

No matter which recipe we choose, I can always count on Hawaiian roll sliders to be quick and easy for me to make and to be a meal we will all enjoy.

Believe it or not, I used to be totally intimidated by working with yeast. So there was a time when making homemade bread, much less homemade doughnuts, would never have happened.

But eventually I learned that working with yeast really isn’t scary at all. And truthfully, neither is deep frying!

There are just a few simple things to know along the way. With a little bit of confidence and some patience, you can serve your family delicious homemade doughnuts for breakfast this weekend!

When I was in college, I almost always had pudding cups and a can of Reddi-Wip in my dorm room fridge. 

A little pudding up with a bit of whipped cream on top and I had an easy dorm-room-friendly dessert.

Even as an adult, I sometimes will pick up a snack pack of pudding to share with Elle. But while the vanilla and chocolate flavors are acceptable, the butterscotch flavor never cuts it. 

I had to make homemade butterscotch pudding to finally understand the deal with butterscotch pudding. Once I made the homemade stuff, I truly got it.

Real butterscotch pudding is rich and tastes like caramel in all the best ways. Thankfully, it’s super easy to make, so you can totally give it a try yourself!

I have been smitten with scones from the first time I ate one. They’re one of my favorite treats to pick up at the coffee shop and have become one of my favorite breakfasts or afternoon snacks to make.

I like that you can make scones with so many different ingredients – sour cream, buttermilk, heavy cream, and even yogurt.

Take these Vanilla Bean Scones. I used vanilla yogurt to give them even more flavor, and I am so glad I did. 

We could not stop eating them – fresh out of the oven they smelled divine. Once cooled, I topped them with a smooth vanilla glaze – vanilla overdrive, friends. And it is SO good.

There’s something special about having a big weekend breakfast, isn’t there?

There’s nothing quite like waking up to a pot of fresh coffee and a batch of freshly baked cherry turnovers or orange scones.

Except, when you’re the cook of the family (like I am), you don’t get to wake up to the smell of breakfast baking in the oven. You get to wake up and be the one to make breakfast for everyone.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love making a special breakfast for Eric and Elle, but getting up 2+ hours early to make homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch kinda makes the whole thing less fun.

Thankfully, I’ve got Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I can turn to for a breakfast that can make us all happy.

There have been far too many times when I’ve been smack in the middle of making a recipe only to realize I am out of an ingredient.

Sometimes I can quickly run to the store to get the missing ingredient. But more often than not, I either just can’t run out or I don’t want to.

That’s when having some simple substitutes up your sleeve comes in handy. Knowing things like how to whip up a simple buttermilk substitute or how to make self-rising flour can save not just your recipe, but also your sanity.

If you find yourself in a pickle and without the right kind of brown sugar for making anything from peanut butter blossoms to apple crumb pie, give this brown sugar substitute a try!
