Raspberry Rose Cream Puffs

Raspberry heaven! A light, airy pastry filled with raspberry whipped cream and topped with dark chocolate ganache : )

These French pastries are so buttery & light. I made cream puffs once …decades ago 🀫and felt intimidated. Re-visiting these adorable desserts with minimal anxiety + a fun summery twist! I highly recommend making the raspberry whipped cream {even if you don’t bake} ~ it’s beyond delicious!! I made extra because it’s so darn good πŸ’ƒ

How the heck do you pronounce choux? = shoo. I hope you have an awesome & safe day πŸ’›πŸ˜‰

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Cheesy buttery garlic goodness! So fluffy & dreamy straight from the oven : )

Similar to a popular restaurant biscuit! They’re so simple & delicious. Flaky with the perfect amount of cheese & garlic. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I originally planned to use news paper to line the mini loaf pan however, the brown rustic muffin liners {which I love} added a nice touch. A helpful tip: if you don’t own round cookie or biscuit cutters… use the top of a glass similar in diameter.

Homemade biscuits are the best! I hope you have an awesome & safe weekend πŸ™‚πŸ§‘β˜ΊοΈ #butteryourbuns #homemadebiscuits

Spring Pea Pasta with Burrata

Eat your peas! I can still hear my Mom saying those very words. Bright sweet peas tossed with ditalini pasta, seasonings & a splash of lemon makes a perfect side or dinner dish : )

Peas were never my favorite however, I’ve grown to enjoy them. Perhaps it’s the combination with pasta 😁

A light, refreshing salad with fantastic flavors. The burrata is similar to mozzarella — the cheesy goodness inside is beyond delicious! πŸ’š #haveagreatday #joyofcooking

Homemade Blueberry Pop Tarts

Blueberry Pop Tarts! Bursting with blueberry filling & topped with a sweet vanilla glaze : )

My first time making homemade pop tarts — these cute snacks are easier to make than I expected. They may not be the prettiest but they’re definitely the yummiest! Fresh blueberries simmered with sugar & a splash of lemon. If the glaze is too thick, add a teaspoon {or less} of water. I also added 1/2 TSP of vanilla extract to the confectioner’s glaze.

A fun idea for kids! Have an awesome & safe day β˜€οΈπŸ’›πŸ˜ƒ
