Marionberry Swirl Pancakes

You guys. It’s Saturday. That means it’s PANCAKE time!!

Marionberry Swirl Pancakes (6 of 6)w

Have you ever heard of a marionberry? No? You’re not alone. Until I visited Harry & David last year I had no idea either. A marionberry is a kind of blackberry that grows in Oregon and it makes AMAZING jams and preserves. Also? It makes amazing pancakes.

I’m super excited about these pancakes for a couple reasons. One, because they were fluffy and perfect. Two, because they are not only swirled with marionberries, but they’re also pecan praline flavored. (Seriously – one of my favorite flavors of anything ever!) And three, because I’m working with Harry and David to bring you this recipe!

Last year, when I visited H&D, I fell in love with the company. It’s like one big family, from the growers to the packers to the marketers. Seriously. So when they asked if I’d help them out with a recipe, I jumped at the chance. Who would turn down a basket like this? No one I know, that’s for sure!

Easy Tiramisu Mousse

Tiramisu Mousse (3 of 8)w

This Easy Tiramisu Mousse contains my favorite part of the Tiramisu: the mousse! I’m all about the mousse (no cake). Watching a group of food/dessert bloggers eat dessert at a restaurant is like watching vultures attack. It’s hysterical. But I digress. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I was...

Chocolate Granola Bark

Granola Bark (2 of 5)w

If you make a candy out of chocolate and granola that means it’s healthy, right? I’ve discovered a new love: Barre classes. Have you ever done them? It’s kind of like pilates but a lot of the class uses a ballet bar. Guess what? It’s freaking amazing. I leave and I feel all glowy and stretchy...

Reese’s Pieces Cookies

Reese's Pieces Cookies (3 of 6)

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a good weekend. Weekends are better with cookies, don’t you think? Do you ever just get a total craving for something? Like, say, brownies? Or cake? Or maybe banana muffins? Or COOKIES? Unfortunately, I get these cravings all the time. Even though I’m constantly surrounded by a plethora of...

Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Banana Bread (12 of 12)w

Well it would seem I’m on a cinnamon sugar kick. This time I’m adding it to Blueberry Banana Bread. Cinnamon sugar is always a good thing, don’t you think? Do you have a song? You know, one of those songs that just speaks to you? Or one that affects you so much that no matter...

Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix

Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix (5 of 9)w

One of my absolute weaknesses is a sweet and salty snack mix. This Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix fit that bill. Seriously, am I the only one who can inhale snack mix like it’s going out of style? Put a bowl of sweet or salty mix in front of me and it’ll disappear faster than...
