Wildtree Wildly Blueberry Jam

Wildtree Wildly Blueberry Jam

Ahhh, Wildly Blueberry Jam… One of my favorite Wildtree products. This is the most delicious jam I have had, and I’m not usually a fan of blueberry either. I’m a huge fan of my mom’s homemade strawberry freezer jam (or I just use honey…) so it’s saying something that this my favorite jam! Continue Reading

Memorial Day Breakfast

Memorial Day Breakfast

Every year for a long time my grandparents have hosted a breakfast at their house on Memorial Day for all of my grandpa’s extended family. It is a pretty big deal and people drive from quite a ways away to come. It’s fun to see people we haven’t seen for a while and we get… Continue Reading

Prom Dinner

Prom Dinner

My little brother went to Prom this year. I told him if he went I would be happy to do their dinner so they didn’t have to spend a fortune on a restaurant. So I did! I can’t take all the credit for it though. My mom and Brianna did a lot as well. My… Continue Reading

I had the opportunity to photograph some of their dishes for the menu in the store. All of the food I tried was fantastic! Like them on Facebook for deals! Continue Reading

Dulce de Leche

Apples are great, but they are even better with caramel, especially dulce de leche. David Lebovitz has a great recipe that doesn’t take terribly long (1.5 hours as opposed to 3-4). Another great treat with dulce de leche is Hagen Daaz dulce de leche ice cream. We had some last night for a Valentine’s Day… Continue Reading

Apple Dip

A friend of mine gave me this recipe a couple years ago. I think it beats outs store bought caramel. Even better, it is extremely easy to make. Here is how it goes: 8 oz. Cream Cheese Softened 1/2 c Brown Sugar 1/2 c White Sugar Mix it all up and top with crushed Heath… Continue Reading

A Utah Classic

Every Utah food blogger probably has to have some form of Jell-o on their blog at some point right? Well, I can’t say I’m generally a huge fan of Jell-o but… my mom’s layered Jell-o Salad (it’s still funny to me to call it a salad) is really good. So try it out! I don’t… Continue Reading

Peaches for you, peaches for me

I love peaches! They are one of my favorite things about fall. Costco had some white flesh peaches that I had never tried before. They looked pretty good so we bought some. They may just be the best peaches I have had. They are so sweet and full of flavor! They are fantastic with cottage… Continue Reading
