The Best Root Beer Float Recipe

The Best Root Beer Float Recipe

My grandfather made the best Root Beer Float ever. It wasn’t the delicious vanilla and coffee ice cream, or the A&W Root Beer, that made it the best.  (The three key, and only ingredients.) It was the best because of how he took making this treat so seriously.  Making a Root Beer Float was a […]

Balsamic Glazed Fresh Melon Cake Recipe

Balsamic Glazed Melon Cake Recipe

For a while now, I’ve been imagining how pretty super thin melon slices would be stacked together — in the form of a cake.  I’m not the first to think of a cake made of fresh melon — but, I’ve never seen one quite like this.  This is one idea that’s been on my want-to-do […]

Espresso Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Chocolate-Espresso Sauce Recipe

I eat it with a spoon. I dip my biscotti in it. I drizzle it over my ice cream. I cover strawberries with it. I pour it over bananas. Really, I could drink it. Over the weekend I served it with Individual Chocolate-Coffee Mud Pies for my dad’s birthday.  (We’ll have that tomorrow.  Stay tuned.) […]

Spiced Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

April-9-Spiced-Olive-Oil-Chocolate-Chip-Banana-Bread-Recipe-yellow-cookingontheweekends.com_

Chocolate chips or not, banana bread has always been, and always will be cake. Sure, it’s shaped like bread, presented and sliced like bread, and well, perhaps we feel better having it for breakfast when we call it bread — but lest be real, it’s cake. It’s soft, sweet and warm.  Ummm?  Yep, it’s cake. […]

Cinnamon Ice Cream Recipe

Cinnamon Ice Cream Recipe-cinnamon sticks-creamy, brown| cookingontheweekends.com

I love cinnamon and I can’t imagine life in my kitchen without it.  It’s as crucial a staple as olive oil or butter as far as I’m concerned.  And I’d be very surprised if any of you didn’t have cinnamon in your pantry. This heavenly spice is packed with health benefits and adds warmth and […]

A couple of weeks ago, my 9-year-old son and I made a mud pie for my father-in-law’s birthday celebration. Hoping nothing too bizarre would be selected, I let my son choose the flavors. (This was risky because his favorite flavors are often florescent colors of the rainbow!) I was so happy — and relieved — […]

There are seven more chocolate recipe-planning days until Valentine’s Day. Let’s be honest: Valentine’s Day is simply a good excuse to eat chocolate — and for one reason and one reason only —  because it’s just so good. This recipe is absolutely luscious.  I mean seriously, it’s oozing with melting dark chocolate, scented with espresso beans, […]

The Everything Cookie

You might be thinking The Everything Cookie is similar to a “Kitchen Sink” cookie.  You know, the cookies you throw everything into (M & M’s, oats, raisins, nuts, etc.)? Think again. Think The Everything Bagel. Think The Everything Bagel without the garlic and onion. Think The Everything Bagel without the garlic and onion and with […]

This year we had a smaller Thanksgiving than usual and it was lovely — warm, peaceful and intimate.  Eleven of us fit around my parents’ beautiful dining room table, candles lit, kids giggling, dogs under the table, and my dad carving the turkey.  It was perfect — except for one thing . . .
