Chocolate Cherry Crisp

Do you ever open up a magazine and want to make everything in it? That’s how I felt about the July/August issue of Midwest Living. I recently whipped up a variation of their Vanilla Orange Cake with Apricots but it was this recipe, this Chocolate Cherry Crisp, that I couldn’t get out of my mind.

Home-made Fajita Seasoning

Last week when I made my Simple Steak Tacos, I mentioned I used Fajita seasoning to spice things up a bit. Actually I said I used my Home-made Fajita Seasoning. It’s super simple to make and you’ve probably got just about everything on hand to toss it together.

Drying or Freezing Citrus Zest

I love the extra little zing that citrus zest can give recipes and it doesn’t matter if I’m going sweet or savory. I use zest often in my herb blends and sauces and also in cakes, frostings & muffins.
