Rustic Blueberry Hand Pies with Lemon Glaze

I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe. I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Berry Beer Coolers

It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Every month, our little group swaps blogs “Secret Santa” style and we all try out recipes from our assigned blogs. This month, we got Wildflour’s Cottage Kitchen, and oh man it was hard to choose which of Kelly’s recipes to try. But then we decided to have an impromptu […]

Orange Mango Banana Spinach Smoothies

I’ve been resisting the green smoothie trend for a long time. But no more! This month, for Secret Recipe Club, I was given Fit Mama Real Food, and reveal day happens to be today, on the last day of #HotSummerEats. What is summer without a refreshing smoothie? Heather’s refreshing Green Orange Mango Banana Smoothie recipe […]

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler #HotSummerEats

Sometimes, old recipes are the best. We love trying out new things here on The PinterTest Kitchen, but we also have a lot of family favorites – and we wanted to share one of those for today’s #HotSummerEats recipe! We’re nearing the end of #HotSummerEats, so wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Camilla […]

Orange Sugar Cookies #HotSummerEats

I know, I know…orange sugar cookies sound totally weird. At least, that’s what I thought when I first saw this recipe! But I was looking for a citrus-y recipe to use my brand new juicer and reamer from Casabella (one of our #HotSummerEats sponsors), and this idea popped up on Pinterest… I just couldn’t get […]

The Best Raspberry Frosting of All Time

You guys. You guys! This is seriously the best raspberry frosting of all time. It’s a butter cream of sorts, but you don’t use any powdered sugar. Seriously…NONE. You will not believe how completely perfect this frosting is, especially when paired with a chocolate cake. This frosting is so good, you can get away with […]

Fruity Wine Jelly

I work for a local winery in Pennsylvania (Benigna’s Creek Winery), and March is wine trail season for us. During the month of March, our winery bands together with 12 other wineries to encourage customers to get out there and taste some wine. Most of the wineries have wine and food pairings each weekend, which […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread #BreadBakers

When it comes to muffins, I’ll usually end up opting for another snack… unless they’re lemon poppyseed. Yum! I ate a lot of them in college because they were quick, cheap, and filling. Anything lemon poppyseed sounds yummy to me! Allison knows I love these lemony treats too. So when she told me the theme for this […]

Coconut Cream Pie

When my husband and I were first married his family had a lot of get togethers. He was the youngest of five children, and everyone was starting to have kids, so it was always somebody’s birthday. His mom’s coconut cream pie was requested quite often. It was piled high with the luscious cream filling and […]

Grandma’s Drop Sugar Cookies

Growing up, it was rare to find store bought cookies in our house. It was even more rare to find them at Grandma’s house. Cake, cookies, pies… whatever treats she had on hand were homemade. Cherry pie, frosted brownies, and these drop sugar cookies are some of her staple treats. Grandmas are the best, aren’t they? […]

Our Favorite Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe

When my sister and I were little, we used to look forward to Christmas cookie day. A few weeks before Christmas, we’d make rolled sugar cookies with our mom and grandma. I used to love cutting out the shapes and decorating the cookies with colored sprinkles. We’d make several dozen – and believe me, everyone […]

The Best Gingerbread Recipe Ever #fbcookieswap

When I was a kid, my aunt made gingerbread one year, and thus began my obsession. My mother is affectionately known as the “cookie lady” in our neighborhood because she makes these huge delicious cookie platters to give away around the holidays, but she never made gingerbread. She probably skipped it because she already made […]

Easy Apple Tart with Toasted Pecans

Fall is here and so is apple season. There are so many great kinds of apples available for eating and baking. Here at The PinterTest Kitchen, we like to make apple crisp, applesauce pancakes, apple pear scones, caramel apple cookies… pretty much anything with apple in it! We posted a huge list of apple recipes […]
