Fruit Panzanella Salad

I love salads. Usually I see them as a perfect, light lunch or as a side for dinner time. Despite my love of them I don’t often think of them as a meal and certainly not dinner. That’s mostly due to my picky eaters. Never in a million years would I have dreamed that my […]

7Up Cake

For me, life is all about the simplest of pleasures like the arrival of spring and the emergence of the first flowers that will soon grace our yard, watching my girls play together, Maddy making Molly laugh or Murphy wrestling a toy. Spring has yet to actually spring here in New Jersey despite the calendar’s […]

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m not so big on this holiday. Never have been. I’m even less enthralled with it since I got married mostly because I have the good fortune of being married to a man who honestly makes nearly ever day feel like Valentine’s Day. I get little notes in the most obscure places. […]

Recently Amy called me the “Queen of Blog Challenges.” I chuckled at that but the more I take on, the more I realize that title isn’t bestowed lightly. I really have my hands in everything! BakeTogether, Improv Challenge, Daring Bakers, Monthly Miettes, MacTweets, Muffin Monday, Secret Recipe Club and not to be forgotten, I run […]

This month for BakeTogether, Abby gave us all a “no bake” assignment which was a wonderful blessing considering the horrendously hot, humid weather we’ve been having here in New Jersey lately. I’ll take any excuse to keep my oven off these days. Abby felt the same way when she decided we would all make panna […]

These muffins almost need no introduction. Just the word “Nutella” in the title is enough to make many people’s mouths water. What’s not to love about Nutella? In my book, it ranks up there with bacon as one of the world’s perfect foods. I love to eat it straight from the jar on a spoon […]

If you’ve read here for any length of time, you all know that I don’t do a double crust pie. I love pie and you will find it in many forms here at Food Babbles but you will almost always find pies that only require a single crust. Once I did a lattice top that […]

Balsamic Fruit Salad

In my humble opinion, there’s nothing better than the simple sweetness of fresh fruit. Yes, I’m a gal who (obviously) appreciates decadent desserts but I certainly don’t eat like that every day and often times, the things I’m making are given to other people. So when I’m looking for a healthy snack to take a […]

Cherry Almond Sorbet ~ Improv Challenge

June 21, 2012

Each year I get all giddy as cherries come into season and start to appear in the farmer’s market. Cherries are definitely my favorite fruit and Madelyn can just eat them like they’re candy. I have to ration them so that they last longer than a day. This month for Improv Challenge, our assigned ingredients […]

Hello Summer!

June 20, 2012

Hello Summer! It has officially arrived. Here in New Jersey we’ve already had 90+ degree days but that was just a very confused spring. Now, I’m ready. Bring on the days spent in swimming pools filled giddy, squealing little girls as they splash in the cool water. Bring on the warm summer nights with the […]

Cherry Apricot Muffins ~ #MuffinMonday

June 4, 2012

I am not a huge fan of summer because I cannot stand being hot and sticky in the ridiculous New Jersey humidity. It’s those warm summer months when I usually miss North Carolina most. Sure, it’s hot there too but the humidity is so much less and makes the heat much more bearable. But I […]
