limeade margarita recipe

Salutations! Around here, the summer season is also known as margarita season. As the weather starts to warm, Honey starts asking “wanna make margaritas?” A cold margarita on a hot, steamy summer afternoon has the power to make all things right in the world–a golden glass of magic! Grin. One of my favorite parts about making margaritas is Honey likes to be in charge of the whole production, from the liquor store to the blender. This recipe has a limeade […]

strawberry jello cake

Hola fine ladies of blogland! I’m blogging in today with a super strawberry -y jello cake that’s just as pretty as it is delicious. We’re not only celebrating Mother’s day this weekend, but also our son’s sixteenth birthday. When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted he requested a strawberry birthday cake with strawberry icing. It’s made with a doctored up box mix, which I mostly steer clear of because of the additives. I decided to give myself […]

Sunday Supper – Guinness beef stew

Salutations! It’s another chilly day here at Cottage Fix, and I’m craving a hearty warm supper. It always makes me feel all cozy to have a pot simmering on the stove top.

easy overnight sticky buns for Christmas morning

Every season I try to come up with an easy treat to whip up for the family on Christmas morning. A few years ago I tried already prepared frozen treats that thaw overnight and you bake in the morning. Another year I made Belgium yeast waffles that had to be started the night before. I started this yummy confection last night and this morning just popped it in oven to bake at 350 degrees F (175 C for the rest […]

sour cream pumpkin bread with chocolate chips

Oh my! This sour cream pumpkin bread with chocolate chips is over the top delicious! What an unusual yet heavenly combination with the earthy pumpkin and tangy sour cream. And then the chocolate chips take this bread to the whole next level! It’s almost too sweet to be a bread, but not quite sweet enough to qualify as a cake I’d say. It’s perfect in the morning with a hot cup of coffee or with your afternoon tea—forget about it. Just […]

three bean and sausage chili

Hola! It seems everyone around here has a chili recipe. And come fall my honey samples pot after pot and raves for days about this lady’s spicy chili and that lady’s beefy chili. I’ve never been much of a chili chef, but after watching my honey savor bowl after bowl I’m sure it’s obvious what had to happen. I needed a chili recipe! I like the idea of having a big pot of chili simmering on the stove on a […]

fresh lemon layer cake

Salutations!  I brought home some cute little lemons last week mostly for decoration for our kitchen table. I also wanted to make a lemony something or other out of them too, but I just wasn’t sure what. I whirled around some ideas in my head — lemon chicken or lemon pasta maybe — something on the healthy side.  But instead of something leaning towards the healthy side I went with a cake, a fresh lemon layer cake from scratch. The recipe is […]

peanut butter and banana smoothie

If you’re in the mood for something rich and creamy, like I happen to be almost all of the time, have I got a treat for you. Instead of eating the peanut butter right out of the jar, for a change I decided to make a nutritious and somewhat healthy snack loaded with banana and peanut butter goodness.  And “oh mama!” was I pleasantly surprised with the rich flavor. It could easily satisfy a sweet craving for something decadent and delicious.
