    Collected from the Native knowledge of our state, Utah loves fry bread. Although, in Utah, we have learned to call them scones. Utah Scone   For the longest time, I didn’t know that there could be any other type of scone. I became a server at a small cafe and after serving a couple from out of state I learned very quickly after dropping off their plate with a scone the size of their head

    Pumpkin Spice Scones Scones have quickly become a favorite treat for me. I’ve tried several different recipes over the last couple of years and they’ve all turned out great. But I have to admit that these Pumpkin Spice Scones are definitely #1 on my favorite scones list. None of the scones I’ve made have ever been this soft. Don’t get me wrong, all those other recipes are fantastic. But I was surprised when I took

    Caramel Apple Cider I don’t know how I got through the fall without this Caramel Apple Cider! Before it was introduced to me by a coworker about 6 or 7 years ago. This is my adaptation of the popular coffee shop drink. Only, this one is way cheaper and just as delicious.

    Each week of warm weather and the summer brings excitement and memories. I read a saying recently that said, “The story of food is also the story of who we are.” When I was a young mother, we lived in New jersey and some of my fondest memories are going to the diner on Saturday for breakfast or lunch.

    As I walk through the neighborhood, I love to look through the fences and see gardens that are growing. It’s amazing how talented the neighbors are. I had a beautiful garden last year and many of you that know me, also know that I am moving to Alaska in 3 weeks. Therefore, no garden here in Utah. I am excited to grow microgreens in Alaska and to see what we might still be able to

    I love summer and I love food that tells a story and makes memories. This recipe is just that. Summers are filled with friends, family, and laughter. I remember so many summer Saturday late afternoon/evening get togethers with buffets of food. Kids splashing in the pool, fresh cold lemonade, and great music. Of course this was all pre-Covid. Now that we can have get togethers again, it’s time to make memories during the beautiful days

    With summer quickly approaching, our lives are filled with family activities, laughter, and making memories. Dinner time is a great time to reconnect as a family after a day of activities. I used to think of soup as a winter or cold weather meal. Soup is one of the most comforting foods to the soul. This past year, I made a goal to master soups. My soups were always too thick, no flavor, or just

    When I see Memorial Day on the calendar, it screams to me that school is almost out for the school year, and the beginning of summer. I love to be outside enjoying the sunshine. At the same time, I enjoy hiking and picnics. I want to share some delicious, fast, and limited-ingredient cookies and brownies over the next few blogs to have the best of both worlds. Along with great cookies, I also want to
