You may remember that several weeks ago I had a fun visit at my home with Melanie from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.  We had a s’more feast.  But lest you think that is all I served I did have something else a little more sophisticated!

I love a little sweet with my heat and Raspberry Chipotle Sauce is just that – sweet and heat. The other thing I love about this recipe is it’s [Continue Reading…]

I would consider this muffin recipe a little bit of a spring/summer recipe as it is easier to find fresh raspberries that time of year but lucky for me Costco had fresh raspberries.  I am sure you could make it with frozen but everything is better [Continue Reading…]
