National Donut Day

  By: Stephanie Rudy June isn’t known for its abundance of holidays. No three-day weekends to look forward to, no fireworks, no pumpkin carving and certainly no Turducken. But, before you discredit the month altogether, are you familiar with the significant holiday that falls on June 6th? That’s right, it’s National Donut Day. Yes, I […]

Banana Cream Pie Jell-O Pudding Pops

by

Jell-O Pudding Pops. If only I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard those three words in the last month. It all started when my boyfriend, Joe, and I took BuzzFeed’s “How Many ’90s Foods Have You Tried?” quiz—because it was clearly more important than actually being productive, okay? After a few high-fives, knee-slaps […]

In Season: Local Strawberries

by

One of the things I love about Sacramento is stumbling upon a corner of earth, right in the middle of our urban landscape, that some lovely soul has decided to farm. It’s a beautiful thing to see acres of fruit trees in the middle of a residential neighborhood, or a strawberry patch nestled between a […]

“Whoopsie” Pies

The witches and wizards broke out their cauldrons and brewed up some tasty treats – not tricks – for this special and spooky occasion.

Rick’s Dessert Diner

by

Ever since I can remember, Rick’s Dessert Diner has been my go-to place on late nights when the ice cream in my freezer just wouldn’t cut it. Even when I attended grade school down the street, my dad would treat my younger brother and I after school, almost weekly, to a treat of our choice […]

Grasshopper Pie

by

Since the SacFoodies 5th Anniversay Potluck was at my house this year, I needed a recipe that I could prepare in advance and not have to fret over. With the theme of “colors” for this year’s potluck, I chose green and the first recipe that popped into my head was Grasshopper Pie. It’s been years […]

Berry Smoothie Pie

by

I came across this recipe from Taste of Home when searching for a colorful dessert and couldn’t wait to try it.  This pie is a breeze to make and so incredibly refreshing you wouldn’t guess it took you five minutes to create (plus refrigeration time).  Think of it as your favorite Jamba Juice strawberry smoothie […]
