Strawberry banana split milkshake

Few weeks ago it may have seem like spring will never come, but finally the temperatures are slowly getting higher, in fact this weekend there are supposed to be 70′s. There may not be much, but it’s better than the high 30′s we had just few days ago.

This weekend we’re planning on having a big egg hunt in the backyard. My husband is planning on firing up the grill for the first time this year and our daughter is looking forward running around the backyard, finding the colorful eggs and enjoying the surprises.

Me? Most likely slurp on one of these strawberry banana split milkshakes….

Soft, with a subtle sweetness and an incredible aroma from the caramelized onions, these onion dinner rolls are perfect for sandwiches or any comfort dinner meals.
Nothing is more inviting than wafting smells of fresh bread baking. The heavenly smell will take over your house, bringing everyone in the kitchen to see what you’re baking. You’ll get the best mom of the year award once your family takes a bite of these soft onion dinner rolls.
The caramelized onions add a subtle sweetness but they are not sweet. Serve them along-side a weeknight dinner or a big Sunday brunch. Go ahead, make them for that special occasion as well.
Just like other dinner rolls recipes, the recipe for these caramelized onion dinner rolls is not complicated, but it takes a little time as the dough needs time to rest and rise.
Making the dough early in the morning and let it rest in the fridge all day long, is another option if you do not have 3 to 4 hours to make them right before dinner time….

Cardamom Coconut Buns

I’m often ask where to I get my inspiration from when baking. Sometimes from cookbooks and other blogs, sometimes from bakeries and restaurants, and few times by just cleaning out the pantry. You might think that all the recipes I share are just the result of my wonderful baking skills (I’m modest I know) but you’d be…
