When it came up in conversation that one of us doesn't eat eggs and we were trying to decide what to do with some bananas that were on their way out, we decided to take on the challenge of making an eggless banana bread. Here is the delicious result!
Easter is upon us and to celebrate we made these sweet and tangy key lime cupcakes. By using a combination of cake recipes in our family cookbook, we created these with fresh lime juice, amazing jellybeans by our favorite Gimbal's Candy made with real fruit juice, a hint of vanilla, and best of all each one is filled with a coconut, lime, and pineapple jellybean on the inside as a surprise!
The sentiment of love through food often comes in the form of sweets.... sweets for your sweetheart, sweetie, sugar bear, honey bun.... Even more, that sentiment is carried to a deeper level with chocolate! So when dreaming up a gift for that special someone in my life I decided what's better than cake, a cherry chocolate cake at that.
The power of a sweet, crunchy, creamy chess pie was one I discovered this holiday season while I was spending time with family outside of Nashville, TN this year. Everyone was shocked to learn I had never had it before, 'Is this a normal pie?' I asked?
We love everything sparkly and sweet during the Holiday season. So we decided to add these dee-lightful vanilla cupcakes to our menu this year. Stuffed with a candied pecan (see the recipe for candied pecans below), topped with cream cheese frosting, and dashed with light blue sprinkles, these cupcakes have a surprise in every bite.
Poundcakes are always all the rage when it comes to the Holidays! You can go wrong with this ultra simple recipe for buttermilk poundcake.The icing is just a simple!
Sugar cookies are one of the most simple yet deliciously addictive cookies, especially during the Holidays. The whiteness of snow and the warm, sugary, vanilla scent in the air come to mind when I think of these classic cookies; this recipe captures all of these senses in one tiny cookie.
Pumpkin pie, an essential dessert for most of us during the Holiday season. I personally can't live without it each year during the Holidays, I even make it sometimes all year round'. One thing myself or my family has never done is made it completely from scratch, which is what makes this recipe so deliciously fabulous and tastefully alive!
I love all the different types of cakes that come along with the Fall season. The best part about this recipe is that you can use it with apples, pears, bananas, pumpkin, or zucchini, you just have to adjust the cooking time. Pumpkin always takes the longest.
Halloween is one of our favorite holidays here at Real Food Real Kitchens. We wanted to go all out this year and have our dream Halloween party that was fun, filled with delicious food and treats, and just scary enough to have a little spooky-ness follow us home that night. So if you are looking for some great Halloween recipes and party ideas, we got you covered here.
As the heat outside continues to swelter this summer, the last thing you want to do is bring that heat inside the kitchen. Yes we know how the saying goes, "If you can't stand the heat keep out of the kitchen," but we found a way to get those taste buds lifted without using your oven at all. Welcome this cool and creamy, no-bake peanut butter pie in to the picture this summer and save the heat to beat the winter blues when they roll around.
This chocolate cake recipe is a modern version of what our Grandmother used to make for us as children. It brings back childhood memories of celebration: Family, Food...Chocolate Cake, and Dad sneaking extra to us when we weren't supposed to have it!
Creating an apple and cheddar cheese bake seemed like a no brainer dish to make. I eat sliced apple with cheese or peanut butter or Nutella on a daily basis for a snack. Baked apples are a favorite southern side dish of mine. It wasn't until I gave my Mother a quick call for some tips on extra ingredients to add to this bake, that I learned my Grandfathers favorite dessert was a slice of apple pie topped with melted cheddar cheese.
Individual pizzas that everyone can help make.
An egg-less recipe for my favorite cookie, peanut butter. A simple recipe for incredibly dense, rich, and moist cookies.
