Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream


Hey, ya’ll! Sorry I’ve been AWOL for the past couple of weeks. But I have a very good excuse: I was sick with various things for two weeks. Yeah, it was nasty. AND I’ve had a severe case of writer’s block.

But I’m gonna make it up to ya’ll in the form of cookies + a giveaway! Look for it next week.

For now, go check out my guest post on the Tasty Kitchen Blog. This Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream is marvy. And it’s super-easy.

What are your plans for the long weekend?

Have an awesome day!

Sausage & Potato Soup, Old + New

Tasty Kitchen Blog Sausage Potato Soup

Over two years ago, I first developed this recipe for sausage & potato soup because of some freezer-burnt broccoli. It’s still very much a staple at our house – the perfect supper when you can’t think of anything else to make.


Here’s the original photo (bearing my watermark, ha!), taken in February of 2010. Which photo do you prefer?

All of this to say, go check out my guest post over on the Tasty Kitchen Blog!
