My dad used to make salmon with brown sugar when I was growing up. We lived in Washington and ate a lot of salmon, which I LOVE! It is so tastie. This recipe makes me super happy, cuz it’s soooo good. It’s going to melt in your mouth.
This is a great main dish. It tastes good, but it is 3 ingredients and only takes about 25-30mins to prepare and cook. My favorite kind of meal, easy and delicious.
Here’s how easy it is-
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a piece of tin foil on a cookie sheet, then lay the salmon on that. Can cut little slits into the salmon to help the butter and sugar soak in.
Place pieces of butter on salmon. Spread it around if you can. If not, just drop butter all over. It’s all good.
Sprinkle brown sugar over the top to cover the salmon.
Place in the oven for 15-20 mins. Check it around 10-15 mins. Don’t over cook.
While that was cooking we steamed green beans. We cooked some squash and zucchini on the stove in olive oil and sea salt. And, we boiled corn.
All fresh from our garden. How cool.
One tastie dinner!

Since it is raspberry season let’s make something tasty!
We recently went down to a raspberry farm in Payson, UT to pick raspberries. We went with my husbands brothers family and we had a great time. Here is link if you want to go too.
I know you want the recipe but first look how fun this was
They say to cut the top off a milk carton and slide the handle through a belt so both hands are able to pick berries. Jackie is ready!
Okay now what you came here for:
This is my Raspberry Cheesecake Crumble and you will love it.
Raspberry Cheesecake Crumble Recipe
2 cups of flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/8 cup of milled flax seed
1 cup of melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together and press firmly into a 9×13 baking dish. I lined my with tin foil before starting. Then bake for 15 minutes.
While that is baking make the Cheesecake mixture and the crumbles.
Three 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of almond extract
Mix in a bowl until smooth. Then pour over baked crust.
2-3 cups of slightly smashed raspberries mixed with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (quick oats)
1/2 cup smashed graham crackers
1/2 cup softened butter
Mix together and crumble with hands.
Spoon raspberries over the top of the cheesecake. Then sprinkle the crumble over that. Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes. Let it cool in refrigerator, the longer the better.
Finally Dev and I have found a chocolate chip cookie recipe we drool over! Now we make it in a big batch and freeze the dough in balls, so that we can have them ready at anytime!
First make any recipe of cookies you LOVE.
THEN- We use our handy cookie scoop and place them on freezer paper or parchment paper on top of a cookie sheet.
We slide that into the freezer to flash freeze for about 30 mins to an hour. THEN we put them into a freezer ziploc for safe keeping back in the freezer.
We also use these handy frozen cookie balls to make pazookies.
We just take out 2 or 3 balls, put them in a little baking safe dish (like what you would make creme brulee in) at 350 for 10-15 mins. Until they are golden on top but still very gooey in the middle
In my resent blog searches I found this amazingly yummy looking pie. A friend of mine tried it, then made it again, then share just how delicious it was- I had to make it. It looked easy enough (usually the thought of making a pie and all the steps scares me).
One of the coolest things I learned during making this pie was how to make toffee out of a can of sweetened condensed milk.
All you do it boil a can for 2.5 hours. Make sure you keep adding water so that the can stays covered. But really that’s it!
It’s like magic in a can
I had another friend tell me she does this to make chewy caramel popcorn. So there ya go.
As for my review on the Banoffe Pie. It was A-MAZ-ING! I don’t have a picture of it because we ate it soo fast. It was THAT good.
Tastie tastie AND simple. I’d make it again in a second.
After experimenting several different times over the past 5 years of our marriage, Devan and I have finally mastered the fish taco. TAA DAA!! Now I will share the goodness with you
I hope you enjoy!

Please leave me a comment! I would love to know what you think about my blog and all my crazy posts :)
I love banana pancakes, but I love them even more NOW. Usually I quickly pull out my always tastie Krusteaz pancake mix, add a banana or two, and whip up some pancakes. But the other day I was being a bit more adventurous and added to the 14-15 (pancake number on the back) Krusteaz mix.
3 rip bananas
1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mixed it all up and made me some yummy pancakes. Peanut butter, warm syrup, and a big glass-o-milk. I am set
Get cooking with your bad self!
Ah ahhhhh! (singing like it’s amazing) Cuz it totally is haha!
I found a you-tube video from Howdini on how to make a princess cake (that you can find here) and made my first ever decorated cake for Charlie’s 3rd birthday. Holy Cow! It wasn’t too hard, but starting the task was. Here is a little tutorial of pictures if you need to make a princess cake. At the end of the pictures I also show two smaller versions I made up myself using the same techniques I learned from the you-tube video. They turned out very cool and totally made my 3 year olds day. (I felt like a pretty awesome mom, not gonna lie )
My pictures for this post are pretty crappy. I was in a hurry and it was really dark. oh well… here’s the info.
I don’t make cakes from scratch so, Betty Crocker cake mix and frosting, food coloring, sprinkles, 5 ice cream cones, and a few princesses from the dollar store.
Made my 4 9×9 cakes. Put the wax paper down so I don’t get frosting on the plate, can pull them out when all done and have a clean plate. Sandra Lee from Food Network taught me that. Ok, used my bread knife and cut the top off so it was flat.
Put some frosting on top- in between the layers.
Three on the bottom. Then cut your forth piece in to fourths, use two of those for the middle, then cut on the remaining fourths in to fourths again and put two of those on the very top. Watch the video if I don’t make sense. It’s good and quick.
Put the cake in the fridge to harden up a bit, before frosting it.
Mix up your frosting
When its hard enough take it out and give it a thick frosting. You can then pull out the wax paper if you want, or wait till the very end.
Now for the fun part- decorating! Put your sprinkles on a plate.
Roll them in sprinkles
Place on the cake
Now add the rest of the decorations. I used a gram cracker for a door. Frosted it, put sprinkles on it. The used a dab of frosting to glue it to the cake.
How to make that cute birthday banner in back, click here.
A week later my friend and I threw a combined party for our girls who are 8 days apart. I made a little smaller version for each of them.
If I was to make this again I would have put two cake layers on the bottom instead of one. I used card board to set the cakes on, sour string candy on the layers, white chocolate chips at the ends of the candy, and lots of sprinkles all around. Oh and I used tooth picks to hold the princesses on.
The party was at Kidsville in San Diego. It was a blast!
Make a Cake with Your BAD Self!
Sorry I haven’t posted on this since last November! My life gets a little nuts in December. You can check out my other blog at www.thehousethatmuirbuilt.com if you wanna hear about my everyday life. My hubs owns he’s own business and December is our busiest month. I try not to do anything that might get in the way of creating an exciting Christmas for my little people amidst running a business out of our home. (AKA more stress for me ) Sooo, my creating/crafting and blogging are pushed aside that month. But! I am back and have tons of fun things to share!!!
Here is my first for the year of 2011. It’s a great treat for Valentines day! (although its actually a Christmas cookie at my house).
Every year growing up, my grandma Z would send a tin of Christmas cookies. And these are my absolute favorite! I might start to drool… We didn’t have time to make them this Christmas so we made them a week ago and loved every bit!
Here they are:
(I was never going to share this recipe, but then I realized that was silly and that you should always share good things!)
Swedish Cream Wafers
1 cup butter
1/3 cup thick cream
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix well and chill. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a small cookie cutter and coat in sugar. Put on a cookie sheet and prick with a fork 3-4 times
Bake at 375 deg. for 7-9mins
Cool, then put together with filling
1/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yoke (optional- makes the frosting creamier, but is not a must)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Sometimes I like to make up recipes and hope they work out. Here is one that was a success at our house tonight. Charlie ate like 15 carrots with her dip. Just in-case you don’t know that’s kinda amazing. Little did she know she also ate mushrooms and beans (insert evil laugh here). Yay for dip!
5 Minute Veggie Dip
1 can pinto beans- drained and rinsed
1 4 oz can of mushrooms- drained
1/3 cup of mayo
3 Tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
The juice of one small lemon about 2-3 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon dried onions or 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Put all ingredients in blender or food processor until smooth.
And dip away!

This is a cake I like to make! I don’t eat it, cuz it got nuts. But, my hubs loves it and so does the rest of his family. It’s a Sandra Lee recipe from Food Network. Sandra Lee takes things that come from a box and then she adds her own little touches to make them great. An easy way to cook, I like it. Try this!
