Easy Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe

Easy Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe Notes:

• The cream cheese, capers, lemon juice, and dried dill are optional ingredients. You can use them, leave off one of them, and adjust to taste. The lemon juice increases acidity so I would not recommend much more lemon juice (but it is up to you!). If you would like to use fresh dill instead of dry you can just watch the blending.

• Try this delicious smoked salmon dip on cucumbers or celery you do not have to limit yourself to crackers (although it is excellent on crackers).

• If adding the cream cheese, you can use this smoked salmon dip as a sandwich spread!

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe

Warm, homemade sweet rolls; what could taste better? And sweet rolls aren’t just for breakfast or the holidays! Make this delicious orange sweet rolls recipe any time of year, and serve them up for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or a wonderful lunchbox treat.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe

I know people immediate think “homemade sweet rolls? That a lot of work!”, when they see a sweet roll recipe, and I am not going to lie, this is not a 10-minute slap-it-together-fast recipe. However, it is not a difficult recipe to make either. And once you have made these a few times you will wonder why you ever bought premade, canned sweet rolls.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe Notes:

• About the only “tricky” part of this recipe is making sure the milk mixture doesn’t get too hot and kill your yeast when added, and not so cold that the yeast will not activate. This is a great article all about yeast. Pay particular attention to the part about proofing yeast.

• One thing I disagree with in that article is the “wrist test”. That may have been great back before thermometers were prevalent, but these days? Use a thermometer. It is just a wee bit more accurate than your wrist.

• 5/6ths of a cup of sugar is a weird measurement. It is 1/3 of a cup of sugar for the dough, ½ a cup of sugar for the cinnamon sugar.

Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe

2 yellow pineapple cocktails on a brown wooden board, with fresh pineapple garnish and decorative drink umbrellas


Mmmmm nothing beats a cold slushie on a hot summer day! This pineapple Malibu slushie cocktail is easy to make, frosty cold, and oh so delicious. Try one while sitting in the backyard, or lounging by the pool this weekend.

Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe

When the heat is on, nothing beats a cold cocktail. If you like sweet drinks (but not overly sweet), you are going to want to try this fabulous pineapple slushie. Malibu rum was used, and the tropical flavors really make this drink what it is.

2 yellow pineapple cocktails on a brown wooden board, with fresh pineapple garnish and decorative drink umbrellas. Cut up fresh pineapple in the background


Pineapple Malibu Slushie Recipe Notes:

• Tip – measure out the pineapple in the can before you open a can of pineapple juice… you may come very close to that ½ cup needed, and you can top off the rest with water to get to that ½ cup. This is a nice substitute if you do not have small cans of pineapple juice on hand, and do not want to open a large can.

• I have no idea how fresh pineapple would work in this recipe. I am guessing that frozen pineapple would work quite well, but again I have not tried it, so I do not know.

• As far as serving glass… a Mason glass jar was used, and this makes two servings. A smaller glass would make more servings.

• If you would like to rim your glasses before making the pineapple slushie, you can. Sugar for the dry, malibu rum for the wet would work. You could also try coconut flakes for the dry, malibu rum for the wet. Place your glass in the freezer while you are gathering ingredients for the drink after you have rimmed it, and have a cold glass to pour your slushie into – 10 minutes max.

• For garnish, fresh pineapple was used. Maraschino cherries would also work very well!
