DIY Unicorn Frappuccino with No Added Sugar #RecipeMakeover

The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino might just be a passing trend, but when I saw the amount of sugar in the drink, I knew I had to do a DIY version for #RecipeMakeover! This week on the blog, we are making over some of your favorite recipes to be just a little better for you – […]

Chocolate Key Lime Pie

Everything is better with chocolate, right? I have to admit, I was skeptical about chocolate with key lime pie at first. I do love chocolate-dipped frozen key lime pie, though, so I though, “Why not give it a try?” I’m so glad I did! Everything is better with chocolate. This just proves it. What makes […]

Mini Blood Orange and Chocolate Trifles

Orange and chocolate is one of those timeless combinations that always seems to work. The tangy brightness of the citrus… the sweet, deep flavors of the chocolate… is your mouth watering yet? My email inbox is overflowing, often with requests from food brands to try their products. More often than not, I say no, simply […]

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 […]
