Easy Apple Strudel

Apple Strudel (4 of 5)

Last week my mother-in-law told me about this dessert her good friend brought her and how good it was.  She gave me the recipe, and I made it the first chance I had. Some good friends of ours just had a baby, so I decided that was the perfect reason to make this.  I saved […]

Grape Salad

Grape Salad (3 of 4)

I always love this grape salad when someone brings it to a gathering. It’s got a great sweet flavor and crunch from the pecans. My mom actually made this at Thanksgiving and I’m just now getting around to blogging it! So sorry for holding out on you! I had to take the pictures on the […]

Fresh Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake (4 of 7)

For Mother’s Day my mom asked me to make her a dessert with strawberries or some sort of fruit.  Immediately a crumb cake type dessert came to my mine.  This cake was moist and flavorful but not too rich and it really highlighted the strawberries.  Everyone but me topped it with whipped cream (I’m not […]
