Strawberry Mascarpone Tartlets

Summer and strawberries belong together, like the beach and sunburn. I don’t like sunburn, but I love strawberries. They are a great snack on a hot summer day but also work great for any type of dessert – something like these little Strawberry Mascarpone Tartlets, for example. Fresh, creamy and super delicious! All you want […]

Easy Homemade "Pop Tarts"

These would be perfect for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday in case you needed a reminder.  So many families love to take mom out for brunch on Mother’s Day.  Given the COVID-19 situation, many of us will still be staying at home this weekend, including my family.  Just about every year I ask my husband and kids for a special breakfast of a bagel and coffee on Mother’s Day.  This year they are not going out for bagels, so I have been brainstorming ideas of other things they can make.  I made this recipe, Homemade “Pop Tarts”.  a couple years ago and they are so easy and delicious.  My kids loved helping me make them and loved eating them even more.  If you can’t take mom out for brunch this year, why not whip her up a batch of these?

Homemade “Pop Tarts”
recipe from Tasty

Ingredients for 4 tarts


1 box puff pastry
jam of choice
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk


2 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup low fat milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
food coloring, of choice

Cut puff pastry along fold lines and then in half, making 6 rectangular pieces.  Coat edges of one section of pastry with egg wash (egg and milk whisked). Place desired amount of filling in the center and spread, leaving room on the edges (I put a couple tablespoons).  Then place a second piece of puff pastry on top.  Push the edges of the two pastry pieces together with your fingers and then press with a fork to seal.  Bake on wax paper at 190°C (375°F) for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.

For icing, mix all ingredients together. Add additional milk or sugar to achieve desired consistency. Apply to slightly cooked pastries

Note:  These got really puffy and we loved them.  If you don’t want them to puff as much then poke the puff pastry with a fork several times before filling.  You can also flavor the icing with extracts or zest for a nice flavor enhancer.

Almond Peach Dump Cake

Almond Peach Dump Cake from scratch!

If you've never paired the flavors of peaches and almonds, you're going to
fall in love with the duo in this Almond Peach Dump Cake.

Now, while I've made peach pie (oh man, this recipe is so, so good!), Texas peach pecan cobblerpeachy blueberry muffins, and even peach-decorated cookies (still one of my favorite designs), I've never made a peach dump

Heck, I'd never made a dump cake, period. I'll be honest – I don't love the
name. Ha. 

*this recipe was sponsored by my friends at Imperial Sugar

Based on the vintage recipe calling for canned fruit and cake mix, this
updated, from-scratch version features frozen peaches, almond flavors, a
homemade cake mix layer, and sliced almonds for a bit of crunch. Melted butter
stirred together with the dry ingredients ensures no dry patches. Oh, and the vanilla ice cream on top is mandatory.

The result is tart and sweet. Warm and cold. Comforting and delicious.
