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…

Fresh Strawberry Pie

Fresh strawberry pie is my favorite spring and summer pie recipe. My grandma gave me this strawberry pie recipe many years ago. Unsurprisingly, because Grandmas rock, it is my go-to whenever I have lots of fresh strawberries or blueberries.  Yep, the recipe works great with blueberries too. I love this…

Easy Graham Cracker Crust

It's almost too easy to pop into the store and pick up a graham cracker crust off the self.  You hop in the car, pop into the store, and grab one of those crusts off the shelf. Seems easy enough. However, there is just no comparing a store bought crust…
