A sweet Valentine's Day dessert - Conversation Heart Cheesecakes A sweet Valentine's Day dessert - Conversation Heart Cheesecakes I've heard people, including my husband, say, "I've never met a cheesecake I didn't like." Well, I can't say the same. I've been known to pay upwards of $10 for a slice of cheesecake and take one bite and shove it aside. To me, cheesecake should be so lusciously creamy and smooth that it just melts in my mouth, and tastes delicately rich with just a hint of tang from the cream cheese. I wont settle for dense, spongy, crumbly and or sour cheesecake; it better be good if I'm going to indulge in that may calories. If its bad, I'd rather throw it away, or feed it to my less picky husband:)
Watermelon Fudge My kids get out of school this week. It’s a blessing and a curse. No more schedules, no more homework, no more packing lunches… In it’s place, I get kids home all day. Everyday. Watermelon Fudge
Making Jam 2: Strawberry Balsamic Making Jam 2: Strawberry Balsamic Who would have thought it would be so hard to find decent strawberries in July? Honestly, strawberry jam should be made in May and June when local berries are at their peak, but I promised y’all a Strawberry Balsamic tutorial and a Strawberry Balsamic tutorial you shall have! One major difference in this recipe and the Blueberry Jam recipe from Part 1 is that the berries are actually cooked and macerated twice in this version. The result is bursting with strawberry-ness! I made a small batch of jam for this post because my cupboards are already bursting with strawberry jam and because I could only find two pounds of strawberries that looked worth jamming. You can easily double or triple this recipe.
Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie For the longest time my quick, go-to Chicken Pot Pie recipe involved canned cream of chicken soup and a homemade biscuit topping. I’m *trying* to stay away from processed foods and to feed my family more naturally, so I came up with this recipe. Which, in my mind, tastes way better then the original anyways.

This deliciously addictive treat was introduced to me at a place called The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Ever been there? They have shelves and shelves of delicious looking candy apples and homemade fudge that I would always be THIS close to buying…but being a bit of a cheapskate I always went for one of the least expensive thing there…the Avalanche Bar.
