I fell in love with these grilled salmon sandwiches with basil dill sauce at first bite.

First, there's the sauce. It's so Oh Em Gee good. Jump up and down good. It's herby, tangy, and loaded with umami from the capers.

Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Birthday cake ice cream captures the flavors of a birthday candle topped celebration cake and combines them into a creamy delicious ice cream.


Birthday cake ice cream


The quintessential birthday cake to me is vanilla flavored yellow cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. It's the kind of cake that made you want to lick the batter from the beaters, bowl, and the spoon when you were a kid. Everyone who tasted this ice cream loved it.

Blackberry Cobbler | #SummerDessertWeek

Blackberry cobbler is an easy way to make a quick summer dessert when you have a lot of blackberries and don't have the time to make a pie! 


Blackberry Cobbler

This post and recipe were created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.

Instead of a having a pie crust, a cobbler is dotted with a biscuit topping that bakes along with the blackberry filling. It's great for potlucks or impromptu dinner parties. I made this for a last minute Independence Day dinner and it was a big hit.
