Rossini (Strawberry and Prosecco)

Strawberry Rossinis are like the Bellini you already know and love...but with a strawberry twist!

Brunch is one of my favorite meals. I get to have all the foods I love and it’s socially acceptable to drink alcohol at 10:30 in the morning. Wins all the way around!

But with kids in the house, I don’t get to brunch the way I’d like very often. Gone are the days of …

Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

strawberry cheesecake dip - poet in the pantry

When I was a consultant for a national food-centric direct sales company, I became a bit addicted to their cheesecake product. It was so simple–just mix with cream cheese for a spread or with cream cheese and whipped topping for a no-bake cheesecake–that I went through bottle after bottle of the mix. I told myself …

Patriotic Fruit Kabobs

patriotic fruit kabobs - poet in the pantry

“Pineapple isn’t white!” my daughter insisted from the fresh foods aisle in Target.

“Well, what fruit can you think of that is then?”

She thought long and hard, scanning the options available. “Pears and apples are white inside, but they turn brown. Bananas are yellow…”

“Do you have a better idea?”

“Pineapple it is!”

Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade #SummerSoiree - poet in the pantry

I’ve had this idea mulling around in my head for a while now. Of talking about making lemonade out of your lemons. Because I had a lemon, recently. A lemon car, that is. My first new car–a 2014 Nissan Versa Note. A car that I was thrilled to be able to purchase, even if it …

Disclosure: I received coupons from Driscoll’s Berries in order to develop a recipe for their Strawberry Shortcake contest. All photos and opinions remain my own.

I am a whoopie pie freak. What’s my favorite pie? Whoopie. Cupcakes for a classroom birthday party? Nope, whoopie pies. Going to a picnic? I already know what I’m making. …

Eton Mess

You have to love any dessert that has “mess” in its title. Doesn’t have to look perfect? That’s right up my alley! Take a bunch of components, throw them all together in a bowl, and serve it. LOVE this concept! Granted, if you take a little time to layer the components, the presentation will be …

Strawberry White Wine Vinegar Jam

strawberry white wine vinegar jam

The rain has been such an emotional drain lately. Gray, dreary days spent locked up inside avoiding torrential downpours. I hope this will not be our new normal.

Not only do I have cranky, crabby kids who need to get outside–whether they like it or not!!–but it’s also delayed a lot of the things I …
