Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers, they always hit the spot! So when Jimmy Dean contacted me about their new Fully Cooked Sausage Crumbles, I knew I wanted to use the crumbles in stuffed mushrooms.

Mini Berry Trifles

I’m so ready for spring. I am trying to will the warmer weather to be here ASAP by making a bunch of spring-themed posts. Sara Lee must have read my mind because they contacted me about using their yummy pound cake in a recipe — what better way to show off Sara Lee Pound Cake than with a trifle?

Mini Berry Trifles #SLSweetTreats

This berry trifle uses fresh berries, pound cake, and fresh whipped cream with lemon curd, making a yummy and bright spring dessert. I made them in mini trifle bowls but you can adapt this recipe to go in a traditional trifle bowl.

Pesto Pasta with Peas

Yes, it’s technically spring. But. It snowed last night here.  So it’s not time just yet to delve into super springy recipes. Sigh.

Pesto Pasta with Peas

So this recipe is a happy medium. The bright green color is a nod that spring weather is (hopefully) not too far away. It is still a warm dish though, so it is good for colder nights. (This recipe from Inda Garten is originally a pasta salad, so it can absolutely be eaten cold as well)

Pesto Pasta with Peas

Ingredients:

Pesto:

  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pasta:

  • 3/4 pound fusilli pasta
  • 3/4 pound bow tie pasta
