Instant Pot Greek Gyros

Instant Pot Gyros: Under 30 minutes for the best Gyros made at home.

Okay, so the other night I was just hanging out at the Instant Pot Community Facebook page (can you say cooking nerd? and proud of it!) when my friend Tonya messaged me. We got to talking about what we wanted to make in the IP (we’re both exited about our IP’s) and she suggested Gyros.

Instant Pot Gyros - beyond delicious!

Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles

Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles: These popsicles are gorgeous & healthy, too. And there's a little secret that gives them a great texture.

I hope everyone had a happy (and safe) 4th of July. I had all kinds of great blogging plans for some spectacular Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes and other party recipes, but got derailed. Completely foiled. Those posts will be coming soon and they’ll still be perfect for all the summer parties yet to come.

Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing

Five minute fresh & healthy dressing that can go on almost anything!

I think I talked last week about being a little obsessed about my spice mixes & concoctions – If you’re a follower, you probably already know I’m just as obsessive about my salad dressings! Today I’m obsessive about this Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing in particular.

Easy Home-Made Greek Yogurt Ranch

Easy Greek Yogurt Ranch with buttermilk & dried herbs

I have a confession – I’ve never warmed up to Ranch dressing. Everyone I know loves it…but not me. Sometimes I think I’m a lone hold out. Until now.

Rhubarb Pistachio Cake

Sometimes a recipe gets made because there’s a “perfect storm” of ingredients! A neighbor volunteered some rhubarb, I had just picked up a new carton of yogurt and I knew I had a stash of pistachios in the freezer. Then I happened to open up the April Martha Stewart magazine. Just one of a stack of magazines I’ve been meaning to get to.

Watermelon Yogurt Salad

I came across a photo of this lovely little side salad from way back this summer! Even though it’s the dead of winter here in the Midwest (a few days ago it was -19) I wanted to get it posted – After all, it’s summer somewhere!!

Roasted Pears with Lemon Cream & Maple Caramel Syrup

These Roasted Pears are drenched in a Maple Caramel Syrup and served with Lemon Curd Cream then garnished with Praline. Showstopper!

For once I don’t have too much to say about a recipe – only that I became utterly enamoured with the idea of this when I was leafing through a Midwest Magazine. I was wowed! Perfect for fall, perfect for Thanksgiving and perfect for me! The recipe makes eight servings, but for these photos, I made a smaller version.
