Mom and I on our annual trip to Disney in July

Today is my mom’s birthday. She makes the absolute best brownies! In honor of her, I thought I would share her famous Fudgy Brownie recipe with all of you. She would make these for us frequently. I still love these traditional brownies dusted with powdered sugar still warm from the oven. Nuts are optional, but I think the walnuts make these even better!

I took her original recipe and came up with a few twists. Anybody like coconut? I do! These Coconut Swirl Brownies will hit the spot!

What about classic peanut butter and chocolate? Try these Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies.

Do you want to impress? Make these Fudgy Brownie Cups with Sweet Cream Cheese and Raspberries 

or try these Brownie Cups with Whipped White Chocolate Ganache and Berries.

 

Give some of these delicious treats a try today!

I can’t believe next weekend marks the official end to summer. These seven simple salads will help you to say, ” So Long Summer!” at next weekend’s BBQ.  They are fresh, colorful, healthy, and show off summer’s best fruits, veggies, and herbs. I just know you’re going to love them!

 

Red, White, and Blueberry Broccoli Slaw is patriotic, healthy, and delicious. It’s filled with fresh berries and the light dressing is made with kiefer.

 

Perfectly Peachy Summer Berry Salad is always a hit! It features fresh summer berries and peaches with salty cheese over fresh bitter greens. Delicious!

Is your garden bursting with basil and tomatoes? Show off your fresh produce with this Kicked up Caprese Salad.

Tortellini Pasta Salad with Pesto and Asparagus is perfect for a hot summer day. It can be made with store bought pesto or you can whip up your own quick pesto is your herbs are out of control like mine.

Vinaigrette Freezer Coleslaw can be made in advance. The sweet and tangy dressing makes this dressing the perfect side dish for burgers and hot dogs.  This quick coleslaw is also amazing with pulled pork on a sandwich.

 

I love fresh grapes. This simple salad features the sweet gems with bitter greens and a sweet and sour dressing. It’s so light and refreshingly tasty. Give this Mixed Greens with Grapes, Almonds, and Goat Cheese Salad a try.

 

Nothing screams summer like Bing Cherries.  While you can still find them in the store, you need to make this salad.

Your friends and family will thank you. Cherry, Goat Cheese, and Almond Salad

 

Saying farewell to summer might not be so bad after all!

Easy Valentine’s Day Desserts

The Teacher's Table

Receive Blog Posts via Email!

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day more than fresh berries and chocolate, and Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! In fact, I can’t believe it will be here a less than a week. If you are still searching for a delicious way to show your loved ones how much you care, you can stop looking! Here are two of my favorite ways to show some love this time of year.

#1-Fudgy Brownie Cups with Sweet Cream Cheese and Fresh Berries– These brownie cups bake up moist and fudgy. Then they are filled with the sweet cream cheese that is reminiscent of cheesecake without all of the work. They are absolutely amazing topped with fresh berries. I used raspberries here, but strawberries are wonderful too. They also just happen to be in season right now here in Florida as well. These brownie cups can be made a few days before and filled with the cream cheese filling before serving.

#2-No Bake Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bars-Oh my god are these bars tasty and easy!!!! Very Berry Cheerios is mixed with gooey sweet marshmallows and freeze dried strawberries. Then they are topped with melted dark chocolate. I could eat the whole pan and bet you will want to as well.

I just know you will love both of these desserts, so go ahead and make both!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My New Obsession-Coconut Berry Chia Pudding

The Teacher's Table

Receive Blog Posts via Email!

I am obsessed chia pudding and this Berry Coconut version is not only packed with healthy berries and omega 3’s, it’s absolutely delicious! This chia pudding can be made in advance, stores easily in the refrigerator, and makes a wonderful breakfast, snack, or dessert.

So how did this obsession begin? Well I had been reading about the health benefits of chia seeds for months. I had even purchased a small package to use as egg substitutes in muffins and to put in my smoothies. I had read several recipes for chia pudding, but I just couldn’t bring myself to make it. I don’t know why? I love pudding and I make several versions of creamy panna cotta, yogurt parfaits, and mousses all the time, but I just never tried it.

Well Mr. Teacher and I traveled to Vermont over Christmas break where Mr. Teacher’s Mom gave me the task of using up the 5 pound bag of chia seeds that she had purchased. I wanted to make something yummy that we could all enjoy as a dessert or breakfast. It was negative 23 outside and I wasn’t about to travel to the store, so I looked through the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry and decided it was time to get inventive. Coconut Berry Chia Pudding was born.

 


I was so excited that it set up in less than an hour. I hesitantly tried my concoction, and boy was I shocked. It was so yummy! The texture reminded me of panna cotta. The coconut flavor mixed with the berries was divine. I was left wondering why I had waited so long to try this simple pudding. I was in love and my obsession began.

Mr. Teacher’s Mom sent me home with several cups of chia seeds. In the last few weeks, I have played around with different versions of my original creation and I have perfected it. Give my Coconut Berry Chia Pudding a try. Let me know what you think too!
