Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes

All the photos in this post are courtesy of our awesome wedding photographer Stevie from Stevie B Photography. If you need a photographer in Central Pennsylvania, we highly recommend contacting her! When I asked Jeffrey what flavor of cupcake he wanted for our wedding reception, it wasn’t even a contest.. he wanted red velvet. He […]

Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I love the combination of lemon and blueberries! This cake has plenty of both… plus wine. What’s not to love about that? The key to this recipe is to pour the glaze over the cake while it is still hot, so it soaks into the cake. Reserve some to drizzle over after it has cooled […]

Colorful Chinese Five Spice Tempeh

This is not the normal type of recipe we post here at The PinterTest Kitchen, but every once in a while, I just have to shake things up a bit. Recently, I’ve been trying to eat fewer animal products. I’m not a vegan or even a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but I […]

Happy Birthday Smoothie

I’m on a smoothie kick. Actually, I’ve been on a smoothie kick for about five years now. I can’t help it! They are such a tasty way to add more fruits and veggies to your diet, not to mention other “superfood” ingredients like Greek yogurt, chia, and nuts. Normally, I liked my smoothies packed with […]

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream (Keto!)

The director of the animal shelter where I volunteer has to stick to a very strict ketogenic diet for medical reasons. I don’t stick to a keto diet, but I still like to make sure she can indulge when I create treats to take in with me. Man, desserts and snacks that taste good and […]

German Chocolate Cupcakes

I’m the go-to girl in the neighborhood when someone is having a birthday… but I hate making cake! Okay, maybe hate is a strong word, but even though I have some favorite cake recipes (like this carrot cake) I usually prefer making cupcakes instead. This time around, my neighbor was turning 40 and his wife […]

It’s one of the first recipes I ever posted here on The PinterTest Kitchen. I love that it includes sour […]

Grilled Peach, Berry, and Citrus Sangria #CookoutWeek

This post is sponsored by The French Farm. All opinions are my own. It’s #CookoutWeek right now, and I knew that this year I wanted to feature a refreshing adult beverage: Sangria! There is no wrong time of the year to drink sangria. In the fall, I want light red wine with lots of apples. […]

Salted Caramel Marshmallow Ice Cream (No Churn!) #CookoutWeek

This recipe is sponsored by The French Farm. All opinions are my own. When I was a kid, I went to Girl Scout day camp every single summer. I was so dedicated to it, that I once hid a broken hand from my mom so that I could still go to camp on Monday morning […]

Blackberry Lime Mermaid Yogurt Pops #CookoutWeek

This spring, when everything was “unicorn,” I said to Jeffrey that I bet everything would be mermaid-colored by summer. Boy was I right on that one! It’s one of the biggest trends in food, fashion, and beauty. Aaaaaand… I kinda love it. I’m jumping on the mermaid trend! I live in Norfolk, which is the […]

Smokey Coconut Oil Paprika Chicken Drumsticks #CookoutWeek

This post is sponsored by Smokin’-Os. All opinions are my own. I know this recipe sounds weird. Smokey? Coconut oil? Paprika? But I promise you, these drumsticks are DELICIOUS. The skin gets nice and crispy, and the paprika gives you a mouth-watering flavor. Plus, these drumsticks have a super smokey flavor, thanks to my special […]
