A before-and-after story: 1. One of my bosses brought in fresh local strawberries. 2. We made strawberry margaritas. 3. They sent me home with some leftover berries! 4. I made an entire strawberry pie along with a batch of (very unattractive) mini-pies. . . #strawberryeverything #strawberryseason #strawberrymargarita #leftoverstrawberries #strawberrypie #minipies #summertime #becauseyum

My Danish grandma once taught me to make ebelskiver, or pancake balls, and passed along her special pan to make them in. These are still one of my favorite things to make for breakfast get-togethers. . . #danishbreakfast #pancakeballs #pancakes #ebelskiver #aebelskiver #breakfast #brunch #danish #becauseyum

Cheeseburger cupcakes – one of my favorites ever. The buns were a less-sweetened vanilla cake recipe, with the rest being pretty standard burger/slider ingredients.
