Three words. Back. To. School.
If you haven’t gotten the hint already, it’s back-to-school season. Along with a multitude of coloring crayons, watercolor paints and No. 2 pencils, comes the stress of planning lunches that the kids will actually eat (and not just bring home 3/4 full). Luckily, I’ve put together 10 kid-favorite recipes that are sure to leave plates (or rather lunch boxes) clean.
2. Leave the canned stuff at home. Send your kiddo to school with a thermos filled with something fresh from the garden. Thank you iFoodreal for this amazing Chicken Noodle Harvest Vegetable Soup recipe!
Welcome Back To School!

The Naked Cake is one of the hottest wedding cake trends of the season. You may ask, what is a Naked Cake? It’s a cake without frosting on the sides. This cake is incredibly stylish and chic and you’re about to see why. I’ve rounded up 10 Naked Cakes that prove you don’t need a pound of buttercream for your cake to make a statement.
I don’t even know what to say about this tea-time White Chocolate Spiced Cake with Rosewater Cream Cheese and Pistachios except to take a step back and look at it. Honestly, I don’t think I have ever seen anything so beautiful! Props to Constellation Inspiration for a job well done.
Lemon lovers this one’s for you! Doesn’t Be What We Love‘s Yellow Layer Cake with Lemon-Lavender Cream Cheese Frosting look impeccable? Yumm.
Whether it’s for a holiday, birthday celebration or special occasion, Naked Cakes are fun to make –(and eat)!

These Lemon Raspberry Bars have a small back story. It starts with me being terribly sick of winter. I live in Chicago, and because it was 1 degree yesterday I truly need some sunshine in my life. I have been complaining quite a bit on my blog about this, and my desire to move to the West Coast for constant sun is growing everyday. Yellow always tends to brighten my mood, and anything with lemon brings a smile to my face (and makes me pucker like none other- that rhymed!).
I searched BHG’s site for a recipe that could lift my downtrodden winter spirits and stumbled on this recipe for Raspberry Bars; I was hooked. I adore raspberries. They are tart yet sweet, and perfectly juicy. Paired with lemon, they are irresistible.
These bars have three distinct layers of flavor: a delicious crust, raspberry jam filling and a fresh raspberry and lemon cream cheese topping that is baked like cheesecake. When the three layers come together, there is an explosion of flavor in your mouth that makes you happy dance immediately.
I only made a few slight changes to this recipe:
- I doubled the amount of raspberry jam on the crust. I really wanted the raspberry flavor to be distinct.
- I used all cream cheese instead of adding in the goat cheese.
- I halved the recipe which my waist line thanked me for.
- I used lemon oil in place of lemon peel. I recently discovered lemon oil, which gives the strong flavor of lemon without all the grating. It is much stronger than extract so don’t try to use it as a substitute. It’s a great time saver for me that I am loving more everyday.
These bars are absolutely fantastic. I ate quite a few, and even ignored the falling snow and decreased temperatures right outside my window for a while.
Awww love is definitely in the air. Can you feel it? If you can’t, then these Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes are sure to get you in the loving mood.
Red velvet is the quintessential flavor for Valentine’s Day. The perfectly red color is cupid’s favorite, and its dash of chocolate is a sweetheart’s dream. I knew a month ago that I definitely wanted to make red velvet cupcakes for the holiday but with a fun twist. BHG, of course, provided the perfect recipe. Finding these Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes in their recipe collection was a dream come true.
I didn’t plan on making one single change to this recipe because I adored it as is. The only thing I did was add a pinch of red food coloring to the frosting to create a fun pink color perfect for Valentine’s Day.
These are simply darling. The cupcakes are perfectly moist with the whisper of chocolate flavor I love in red velvet. And the cream cheese frosting is fantastically fluffy with a hint of raspberry flavor which takes it over the top. I used a fun piping tip for the frosting to dress these up for the sweethearts in my life. Then each cupcake got its personal cherry (really raspberry) on top.
The results were just what I wanted for the holiday. Make these for the ones you want to feel loved on Valentine’s Day, and they will feel exactly that.
YOU GUYS. Today is National Pie Day, a.k.a the best and only food holiday worth celebrating. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m a huge pie fan. In any form, basically. I joke (not actually joking) about having pie for my future wedding dessert. So I thought I’d peruse some of my favorite blogs and find the best pies for you to help your celebrating!
I’ve had this Crack Pie from Averie Cooks for a while now and every time I see it can’t wait to try it out! With an oatmeal cookie crust and so much butter, this pie is perfect for an intense sweet tooth!
Bakerita has brought us the mother of all desserts in this Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. This treat could work at Christmastime, but did anyone else think Valentine’s Day when they saw it? I would love to share this treat with my Valentine!
Have the best pie day ever, Delish Dish! Let me know how you’re celebrating in the comments!
With love and pie,
