I just came back from North Carolina. I was on a trip to Mount Airy, North Carolina or Surry County located in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. I had heaven in a bowl while I was there. It was called Sonker. I told my children all about Sonker. I would say bragging is more like it.
The question I was asked is what is Sonker? That is hard to say it is one man’s or woman’s cobbler but to me, the difference is the juice of the fruit. The Sonker we had didn’t have a crust. I have heard that some do. The one we had dough on top and the fruit just sunk right in there that may be where the name Sonker came from. It is fruit that has sunk into the dough or dough that sunk into the fruit. No matter what you call it you need to make it! The recipes are as unique as the people who created them. The Sonker was the best dish I tasted on my journey in Mount Airy, North Carolina although there were many which you can read about in my post what to eat in North Carolina.Continue reading

Lately, I have been finding myself needing a weekend to relax after my weekend. Life is hectic and busy all week long and instead of having a break on the weekends, it seems life is even busier. Surviving Saturday is the only reason I need to celebrate and this past weekend I celebrated with a frozen ice cream mudslide pie cocktail.
Since my Saturday was so crazy, I decided to get a little crazy with my cocktail. Why not? Right? So I made my mudslide with a slice of Edwards Hershey Crème Pie. Edwards pies are perfect for ANY occasion whether you are celebrating a birthday, work event, graduation or surviving Saturday. Who says you can’t have your pie and drink it too!
Add all of the ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth. Drizzle chocolate syrup on the inside of the serving glass. Pour mudslide mix into the glass. Top with whipped cream and chocolate jimmies.
Your weekend probably includes at least one trip to Walmart. I know mine usually does. So while you are there head to the frozen dessert section in the freezer aisle and pick out your favorite pie flavor. Whether it’s celebrating the week’s wins, reconnecting with friends, or making it through another day, Edwards® invites you to take a break and reward yourself during those everyday moments.
I hope you will remember to celebrate you successes in life no matter how big or small. Try a slice of pie or make yourself a frozen ice cream mudslide pie cocktail.

If there is one thing I love, it’s an easy breakfast recipe! Unlike me, my husband and daughter are not morning people. They like to get up around late morning and just hang around allowing themselves to wake up on their own time. (Must be nice right!?). But they do however love breakfast foods. So on weekends I like to make a yummy breakfast for them when they wake up.
One of my daughters favorite foods is strawberry so I try to make sure I incorporate it when I can. I wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have some like I thought I did, so I decided to get a little creative and make some of my own! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Rolls that I came up with tasted awesome. I just knew I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy!Continue reading
