Savory, Buttery and Crunchy Everything Bagel Seasoned Croutons

When I recently developed my recipe for Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls, I knew I couldn't waste the crusts from the bread I used; and, as I always do with leftover crusts from bread, I made croutons...but, this time, with a special twist!

These savory, buttery and crunchy croutons are ideal for your holiday salad, soup or casserole toppings, or in your stuffing.  They make such a great snack, it's difficult not to eat them all before using in your recipes!

Lime-Dill Sauce for Seafood or Seafood Cakes

I originally posted my recipe for this amazing seafood sauce along with my recipe for scrumptious hashbrown salmon cakes.

One reader made this sauce and exclaimed that it was spectacular and that she had never had a better sauce...she said I deserved an award for it!  I'm still blushing!

                                                         Oh my...
                                                  This Is Spectacular!

A Tall Square Stacked Strawberry Shortcake with Homemade Whipped Cream

My daughter celebrated a milestone birthday this month.  Strawberry cake is one of her favorites; and for her special birthday, I wanted to prepare a special cake.  So, I did a twist on traditional strawberry shortcake and made a tall square strawberry shortcake with three layers!  She said she loved it because it's so light...a perfect spring dessert!

I just can't decide on the photo with which to lead this post...the uncut cake photo shows what a beautiful presentation this cake makes; however, the sliced cake photo is such a great shot and shows how tempting the cake is, hmm...

This is how we started the cake...



And, this is after we cut the cake...


For the layers, I used a recipe I've been making for years.  Normally, it makes three 8" layers or one 13" x 9" x 2" cake.  I have spent quite a bit of time researching on the internet the Betty Crocker cookbook from which I adapted the recipe for the layers.  However, when I find my vintage Betty Crocker cookbook, which is packed away since my move,  I will provide the printing issue information.

Recipe coming soon!

Happy Spring y'all!

Wake-Up Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans

Right out of the shower and before breakfast, I have my first cup of coffee.  With that first cup of coffee, I feel I need a little bite; and generally, it is some kind of simple cookie, like an oatmeal cookie.

I always drop a chocolate-covered espresso bean into my coffee mug.  Then, I started putting an espresso bean on that little cookie and chasing it with a sip of coffee...man on man that's really good!  So, I thought why not just make some oatmeal cookies with espresso beans in them and dunk them into my coffee!  Wow...bingo, perfect!
