Honey Lime Slaw with Cilantro and Sriracha



   Normally I am a creamy coleslaw kind of gal.  But this was worth stepping outside of my comfort zone. It is bright and fresh and delicious!  It has a nice blend of sweet and sour, balanced with a little heat.  It has a nice rounded flavor that will knock your socks off.

Watermelon Cake Balls

     By now you know I have a sweet tooth and I am a sucker for food that fits a theme.  Of course that means summer parties need summer treats.  These watermelon cake balls fill that need.  They are relatively easy to make and they are cute as can be.  The best part is you can make them a few days ahead of a party, leaving you plenty of time to do everything else as the event rolls around.  Make a set for your next BBQ, surprise your family with fun mini watermelons at your next picnic of be the hit of your next potluck.  There are a treat that will not soon be forgotten!

Lots of Candy Monster Cookie Bars, Mondays With MiMi



     Our family really enjoys Monster Cookies.  I talked about this when I shared my homemade Monster Cookie Ice cream Recipe.  I made this monster cookie bars to go with the ice cream.  For some reason it just seemed to me that if we were going to have monster cookie ice cream we should have monster cookies. Since monster cookies make such a big batch I decided to make these bars to treat the small dinner party I was having.  They make a reasonable amount and of dessert and served as a nice base for the ice cream.  I just now thought about how nice this dessert would be layered as follows: cookie bars, ice cream and a small serving of hot fudge topped with small candy bar pieces to tie it all together. (So much for being reasonable.)  Too late to serve that to my guests but feel free to wow yours with my special dessert idea!
     These are great served warm out of the oven too.

Red, White and Blueberry Sourdough Waffles #SundaySupper


      I LOVE waffles!  I know, it probably isn't a huge surprise based on how big my sweet tooth is.  But belgian waffles hold a special place in my heart.  As a kid, we were members of the country club just up the road from us.  We would all pile in the golf cart and head up there to spend the day in the pool.  Most of the time it was just for fun, but there were practices for the swim team mixed in.  We also took some tennis lessons and golf lessons, all skills which are now completely lost!  But we always had a good time.  But my favorite part about the country club was Sunday brunch.

Fun Food Ideas for the Fourth of July!


     It's almost the 4th of July and red, white and blue are popping up everywhere!  So a couple of my friends and I got together to make you some treats.  By now you know I love party food and holiday food is the ultimate party food!  The Fourth of July is not exception and comes with its own brand of excellent food. I always think of BBQs and of course red, white and blue treats.  I love them all, but especially those that get their color from all of the ripe berries that are so good this time of year.
