Nothing tells you spring is here more than rhubarb, berries and fresh peas beginning to show up at the farmer’s markets and grocery stores. While tart rhubarb is almost always paired with strawberries, this pie goes a different way with blackberries and a slightly sweet crust flavored with fresh lemon zest and limoncello.
Oh hey, it’s May! One of the perks of being a blog subscriber is that subscribers receive a bonus recipe every month. This month we are making it available for everyone to view so people can get an idea of what a bonus recipe might entail. We’ve featured homemade potato chips, crackers, a variety of muffins and breakfast bars or griddle cakes, hot and cold dips for those summer get togethers or fall tailgating parties. We’ve even done cauliflower rice with the grater/slicer attachment. But since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we are going to do a Mimosa Bar this month. Because moms deserve a cocktail, and a foot rub!
We recently shared a recipe on social media for making classic Swedish Sugar Buns. I made them a couple times as the recipe was written but then my creativity went into overdrive and I realized I could tweak them just a bit and turn them into delicious cream cheese and jam danishes. A few more tests and I feel we have a winner! These are best served warm, right out of the oven but no one really complained when they enjoyed them the next morning, slightly warmed in the microwave. I used a slightly sweetened cream cheese mixture and cherry jam for mine but feel free to use just plain cream cheese if you’re trying to cut back on sugar and if another flavor jam is preferred, go for it. Make them your own. I personally enjoyed the slightly sweet cream cheese and the tart jam combination but let us know if you find a combination that you enjoy.
