Cherry Almond Danish
avatar

Cherries and almonds go together like peas and carrots. This recipe for a simple breakfast Danish features cherry pie filling and slivered almonds. The flavor is unbeatable. The simplicity of the recipe is a winner also. Using canned biscuits from the refrigerator section of your grocery store and prepared pie filling, breakfast can be on the table in a few minutes. As fancy as this Danish looks, you’ll be able to serve it for your next brunch to guests and they’ll feel like you spent all night prepping the meal. If you don’t tell them the secret to this dish, they’ll never know! I prefer the honey layer dinner rolls for this recipe, but you can use buttermilk or butter dinner rolls just as easily. If you’re a ‘make it from scratch’ kind of baker, pull out your favorite biscuit recipe and go for it! Cherry Almond Danish Recipe Ingredients: 1 pkg (10 oz) Layer Biscuits 1 can (15 oz) Cherry Pie Filling 1 c Sliced Almonds Recipe Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 9×5 loaf pan. Separate biscuit dough into single biscuit portions. Layer biscuits, spoonfuls of pie filling and almonds in overlapping pattern in pan. Bake … Continue reading →

Since our pets are a huge part of our life, we like to make treats for them, almost as much as we like making treats for ourselves. (More so, some days because no matter what the treat looks like, they love it!) Cackling Veggie Cornbread is a pet recipe for birds. We have two parrots who just love this treat. The process is simple enough and ingredients are such that you can find at any store that sells grocery staples. In fact, this bread is something you could eat, if you didn’t mind crushed egg shells in your bread!   The end results looked like something I wanted to serve the family. Instead, I marked the packages as “Bird Treats” and served pieces to … Continue reading →

Valentine’s Day and chocolate go hand in hand. I’m not sure whoever came up with the idea that love is expressed with chocolate, but I’m not arguing with that tradition! This is a nice treat to make for the school Valentine’s party or to just share with your family. Of course, if you’re taking these tothe school party, you’ll probably want to double the recipe. I’ve never met any group who can eat like elementary school students! (aren’t you just ready to reach into that picture and grab a brownie?!) If you really want to impress your Valentine, cut the brownies with a heart cookie cutter before icing. Then serve the brownie on top of their favorite ice cream! Valentine Brownies Recipe Ingredients: 1 15 oz Brownie Mix 2 Eggs 3 TB Water ¼ c Oil 2 TB Butter ¼ c Milk 1 c Powdered Sugar Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
