Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a crazy recipe for me to post because I don't like anything pumpkin - pumpkin spice, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, none of it.  My nose turns up to everything pumpkin except for one thing: these incredible pumpkin bars.  I know it doesn't make sense, but these pumpkin bars…

Grilled Pineapple

How do you like your pineapple?  Most of the time I just cut it up and eat it, or add it to a fruit salad.  My family loves pineapple, but the last few times I've bought one it's mostly gone uneaten.  Since I hate wasting food, I thought that it…

Tiny Baking with my Tiny Chef

I'm always looking for good gifts for my kids. I hate getting the kind of gift that ends up getting played with once and is never seen from again.  The good gifts are the ones that keep popping up and getting played with all throughout the year.  When my daughter…

Greek Lemon Rice Soup

Greek lemon rice soup, also known as Avgolemono, is one of those dishes that reminds me of home.  The funny part about this is that my family never actually made the soup, nor are we Greek.  Lemon Rice soup is a staple dish at almost all of the Greek restaurants…
