Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Earlier this week, I picked up some delicious pink cara cara naval oranges at the supermarket on a whim. I usually get those mini mandarin oranges, but I’m so glad I picked something different this time around. They are delicious! If I cut one open in the kitchen, my whole house smells like citrus. Mmm. […]

Blueberry Lemon Crumb Bars

Next to peanut butter/chocolate, blueberry/lemon is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations. When I pulled these bars from the oven, my entire house smelled like happiness. The original recipe I found for these bars didn’t include blueberries, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to through some berries in the […]

Maple Banana Frosting (Paleo)

This is possibly the weirdest frosting ever… but it is so tasty! I didn’t start out looking for a paleo recipe. I was just looking for something that didn’t use the tradition sugar, milk, and butter ingredients you find in most frosting recipes. Then I came across this 7-minute maple frosting from Healthy Seasonal Recipes. […]

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle

Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do! I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided […]

Puff Pastry Apple Roses

With the fall season in full swing, we always like to try out new desserts made with apples. I was watching The Chew one day and they made a rose with puff pastry and apples. They were so pretty that I decided to try my hand at making them, even though I usually prefer quick […]

White Sangria Popsicles #CookoutWeek

#CookoutWeek is winding down, and I’m looking forward to trying out the yummy recipes bloggers have been posting. I wanted to end the week on a sweet note, with a recipe that is great for a hot summer day. When it is 90° and humid outside, doesn’t a fruity popsicle taste perfect? And it’s even […]

Sour Cherry Almond Cake

This year my mom’s sour cherry tree was full of cherries. What to do with them all? My brother, his son, and Allison love, love, love cherry pie, so my mom freezes a lot of cherries to make the pie throughout the year. But since we had to many this year, I decided to go […]

Cherry Cranberry Ribbon Cookies

I can’t believe I’m just now getting around to posting this recipe! I first made this recipe several years ago for my Christmas cookie plates, and they were an instant favorite. This month, we’re joining a new blogging group called Monthly Ingredient Challenge, and as the name implies, we all create dishes around a single […]

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 […]

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 Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

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 […]

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 […]

Caramel Apple Cookies

Okay, time for a truth bomb: While we love pumpkin here on The PinterTest Kitchen (so much we did an entire pumpkin recipe round-up last year), that is not the top flavor of fall for me. In fact, I put it third on the list, behind my two favorites, tied for first place: apple and […]
