Chocolate Granola No Bake Cookies

Suzanne Clark kicks off our "Back to School" blog series with this simple, no-bake cookie that is great as an after school snack or lunchtime treat.

When I was young, one of my favorite books was the Betty Crocker Cookbook. Yes, I know most 10 year olds do not typically cherish each page of the dessert chapter of a cookbook, but I certainly did! Each page to me was a new possibility, an adventure. My poor mom would constantly have to listen to my requests to make a time consuming, complicated, fancy cake or cookie with her on a weekly basis.

“Drive-In” to Summertime Movie Nights

Take advantage of those ideal summer nights by creating your own “drive-in” movie experience at home. Suzanne offers some creative tips for hosting a fun-filled evening, which includes two inventive recipes perfect for setting the "drive-in" feel.

I love the summer, but let’s face it, months of having the kids out of school can be quite challenging! Finding them new and exciting activities that don’t break the bank can be an even bigger task! A few years ago, our family started having movie night to help end the dog days of summer.

Ginger Berry Tart

Keep your cool with this light, creamy treat that is full of summertime flavor: fresh strawberries, juicy ripe blueberries, and sun fresh orange.

I love making this quick and easy desert not only because it is delicious, but it requires just a brief time in the oven, keeping your house cool in the hot summer months. The beautiful colors of the berries and the glistening gel top are all that is needed to decorate this crowd pleasing desert.

Garden Vegetable Skillet Fritters with Avocado Cream

Once again our very own Suzanne Clark created some prize-winning recipes at The World Food Championships. Read about how she got started, how she did, and get the recipe for her original side dish entry, Garden Vegetable Skillet Fritters with Avocado Cream.

It all started about three years ago. I entered the Challenge Dairy Heritage Recipe Contest and won! I made my delicious appetizer using scallops, lemon, and butter that my husband and I would enjoy on special occasions and date nights at home.

Give Dad Gourmet at Home this Father’s Day

Give Dad a restaurant experience in the comfort of your own home. Here are some of Suzanne's favorite ways to “gourmet your grill” and bring that eating out experience home.

On Father’s Day, my husband always enjoys a day of handmade gifts from the kids, relaxing on the couch, and some delicious treats. Through my five kids I’ve learned that going out to a restaurant on busy holidays like Father’s Day is far from relaxing.

Red, White, and Blue Poke Cake for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to remember all of our servicemen and women who stood proud and tall in the military. I hope this old family recipe will be a special part of your Memorial Day as we remember all of our American heroes.

Memorial Day represents many things to many people. For some, it is the start of summer, the end of school, or new beginnings for some. It's the time of year when people get out the bathing suits, prep for summer vacations, and brush the cobwebs off the grill! For me however, Memorial Day is much more.

Butter is Back on the Table

We have all heard the rumors about butter, diet, and health, but do you know the truth?

Recently a few news organizations have shed some light on butter’s true value. For decades, many consumers have changed their diets based on undeserved, unscientific claims that butter was somehow unhealthy or that the natural fats in butter contributed to heart disease. Thankfully science is prevailing, and people are realizing that…

Mother's Day Griddle Art Pancakes with Strawberry Butter and Syrup

These “Griddle Art” pancakes give your children an opportunity to create something extra special for Mother’s Day, while using their creativity in the kitchen.

My Mother’s Day has always started with breakfast in bed. I can remember some days I would wait for hours pretending to be asleep while my husband and children scurried around the kitchen making me the perfect breakfast. They would present a beautiful tray full of beautifully prepared goodies and gifts.
