Fresh Strawberry Cake with White Chocolate Drizzle

"This fresh strawberry cake is wonderful in every way – girly enough for the “foof-iest” of us, but it also passes the “man test.” Fresh, dense, summery all at once."

Fresh Granola and Homemade Yogurt

Fresh Granola and Homemade Yogurt

I LOVE this simple healthy granola from The Hungry Southerner: "Baking it fresh every time. Why buy Granola when you can make it fresh and easy with this simple recipe? Just a few ingredients and some imagination and you're on your way to never eating store bought granola again." So true! And particularly delicious with your favorite local nuts, seeds and fruit. Learn how to make your own homemade yogurt too!
