Delicious warm or cold, German Potato Salad is an all-time favorite for potlucks, picnics, and barbeques. The slightly sweet but tangy dressing contains no mayonnaise, so it is a perfect choice for hot weather.
I love summer. But sometimes the weather is so hot, my meal planning becomes routine and ordinary. So I think… “let’s eat alfresco!”…but mayo is a big hard no. So, salads that are typically “summer” salads like macaroni and potato are not even in my consideration.
But then there is German Potato Salad. Loaded with onion and bacon, it is a hot weather favorite of mine because there is no mayonnaise to worry about. Made mostly with pantry items and produce staples means I don’t have to go to the market just to make this dish.
Coconut Sunrise is a sweet and refreshing cocktail. Lightly alcoholic, it’s perfect for sipping on hot summer days and makes any brunch extra special.
Are you ready for something new to sip on this summer? My Coconut Sunrise will surprise you with every sip.
I love layered cocktails like the Lava Flow and stacked drinks like the B-52. So, I thought I would create my own lightly boozy drink that would have definite layers. You might think making these types of drinks is hard, but I promise you it is not hard at all.
Looking for a cake that doesn’t need frosting? Meyer Lemon and Rosemary Cake is sweet but not too sweet. This delicious cake has soft herbal notes from rosemary paired with orange-like Meyer lemons that will remind you of long, wonderful summer days.
There are those cakes you make for major celebrations. You know the ones I mean? Covered in decadent frosting or filled with ganache and custard fillings, they are so beautiful and so sinfully delicious.
But sometimes you want a piece of cake, and just cake, as a mid-day treat or to top off a wonderful day and you don’t need a major showstopper. You want simple. You want sweet, buttery cake.
Do you love pickles, but hate to wait? Quick Pickled Cucumber with Lemon is that special condiment for your next barbeque or bowl. These Asian style pickles with lemon are ready in less than 20 minutes!
Years ago, I was very lucky to learn a little bit of Asian cooking from a lovely Japanese woman, who was masterful at putting a dinner together that hit every taste you would want in your meal. To balance the salt and savory components on the plate, her meals always included some sort of tsukemono, a preserved, pickled vegetable.
