No, I’m not Swedish (which is where Mazariner hail from). Nor am I Italian (where the cakes reportedly came from before they came from Sweden). But it doesn’t take a Swede or an Italian to recognize a good pastry. And these cakes, full of flaky, buttery goodness, are delightful. I happened upon this recipe tucked […] . . .


For most of us meal planning is something we do to keep the wheels spinning on our household. Typically we are planning a week (or maybe two) of meals for the handful of people that we share a roof with.

Summer has finally arrived in Northern Colorado. We spent most of the month of May with cloudy skies, rain, and flooding. June has brought with it sunshine, gardens, outdoor activities, and happier people.

This week I decided to cook recipes from the Inspiralized Cookbook  with one requirement: “I wouldn’t normally make this…” I wanted to branch out and use ingredients that I had never cooked with or typically shy away from.
