When you think about Eater, what comes to mind? Maybe, the Easter bunny, plastic eggs filled with candy or tiny treasures? Or maybe you are like me and what comes to mind is the indulgent meals laid over the long table in your house with family and friends all around it.
I partnered with Produce for Kids and Publix to share how they are coming together to benefit Feeding America and how you can too. Plus, I’ll share with you a kid friendly recipe. All opinions are mine alone. #ProduceForKids
Summer, fresh fruits, homemade biscuits, freshly made fruit sauce and nuts…you can’t go wrong with that combination. My girls are looking forward to a fun summer. School is over and we are all celebrating with juicy grilled peach shortcake topped with a light whipped cream, drizzled with freshly made raspberry sauce and some chopped pistachios for an extra texture and nutty flavor. Sweet, tangy, smooth and crunchy. Can you imagine all those flavors in your mouth? It’s a celebration indeed!
Who doesn’t like a soft, melt in your mouth doughnut? Specially when that said doughnut is inspired by the beloved cookie jar. That’s why when the Central Florida Lady Bloggers invited me to Krispy Kreme and sample their limited time Cookie Jar Doughnuts I couldn’t resist.

While growing you I saw my parents work on the land and plant many vegetables and herbs. My father would leave the house while it was still very dark outside and sell to the farmer’s market vendors. It was hard work, but he enjoyed it a lot. It was a feeling of accomplishment. The vendors waited patiently for his crop to be ready, he had some of the best produce in the area and they all wanted to be the first in line.
My parents would also share with our neighbors and family. I remember seeing them share the best ones and I always wondered why. One day my mom said to me; “If you are going to share, give the best you have”. I like to believe I have a giving heart like my parents do.
That’s why during this growing season I wanted to start a home garden in my own backyard. I want to grow vegetables and herbs, not only for us to enjoy in our home, but also to be able to share with our neighbors. Maybe we can make a nice BBQ one beautiful summer evening and eat together. I can see it already!
Coconut Cream Pie is one my husbands favorite pies. I wanted to surprise him with a coconut cream pie for a long time now. Finally I came up with a great recipe, which I believe is the easiest coconut cream pie to make and that makes me extra happy. I did find a longer recipe that I will try sometime in the future and compare to this one, but for now, this is the one for me!
