Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake with Toasted Coconut

Strawberries and cream angel food cake with toasted coconut Driscoll's Strawberries #StrawberryMonth AD | Mama Harris' Kitchen

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Driscoll's. As always, all opinions are mine alone. Did you know that May is National Strawberry Month? I'm sure you probably didn't, but that's why you have me here. To remember all these crazy food holidays and make yummy items in celebration of them. Sounds good, right? Well, today's recipe does not disappoint. Strawberries always remind me of the simplicity of childhood. Every child (it seems) loves strawberries, I know I did. One of my fondest memories is visiting my aunt in the summertime when strawberries were HUGE, plump, and perfectly hued in that color that only strawberries are.. and my aunt would sit me down at her kitchen table with a bowl of strawberries and some sugar to dip them in. My eyes would roll back and I'd be in heaven for at least 30 minutes while I enjoyed my special treat. Through the years many of my favorite recipes have always includes these beautiful berries, like cheesecake topped … [Continue]

Easy Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

Easy Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce #FosterFarmsFresh AD | Mama Harris' Kitchen

One thing I love about living in California is the diversity in our food. There are so many different cultures that span all across California, and it's evident in all of the restaurants and grocery stores as well as the food options. I think this is great, because there's such a variety of foods to try and taste, which of course helps to expand your palate. What I also love about California is the availability of farms that are local to the area, like Foster Farms. There's a new line of products that Foster Farms is introducing, including the Simply Raised antibiotic free chicken that I'm using for this sponsored post and recipe I've developed with the Simply Raised boneless chicken breast. If you're not already familiar with Foster Farms chicken, they have been family owned and operated since 1939 and is the West Coast's leading poultry producer. There's been a major update which features new packaging, new logo and three new quality products. There's truly something for … [Continue]

Broccoli and Bacon Frittata

Broccoli and Bacon Frittata with VELVEETA® #LiquidGold5 (ad)

This post is sponsored by VELVEETA® . All opinions are my own. I remember one of the first things I made with my cast iron skillet was a frittata. I bought this skillet for this purpose entirely, not knowing that a skillet must be well seasoned and oiled before you can even think of making eggs in it. While my frittata was delicious, cleaning that skillet was such a headache trying to get all those pieces of egg off of my skillet. At that point I made it a point to learn how to take care of my skillet and how to cook with it to prepare the type of meals I love to eat. Eventually I got it down, and after good care and proper cleaning, a cast iron skillet ends up being almost … [Continue]

Sweet & Savory Cherry Puff Pastry Bruschetta

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry. As always, all opinions are mine alone. Last week I attended a gorgeous outdoor summertime brunch with other local bloggers hosted by Pepperidge Farm. We got to sample a variety of different goodies made with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, from sweet to savory and I adored them all! We were even challenged to create our own Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry recipe of our own and I was so inspired by all of the beautiful and creative foods that were being served. There were mini cherry pies, apple strudel, blueberry summer pie, strawberry shortcake push pop pie, pastry puff chicken salad sandwich, mini … [Continue]

As always, all opinions are mine alone. #BuffaloWingsAndRings #CollectiveBias I remember when my eldest child was little, we used to go out to eat a lot more often than we do now as a large family. I can clearly recall one time going out to dinner with my dad, stepmom and aunt and my one and a half year old. Of course the food took a while to arrive, and he quickly tired of the crayons and coloring sheets provided by the restaurant. I pulled out some saltine crackers and a little toy from his diaper bag, and he was thrilled. My dad remarked how smart it was to bring snacks, and the night went off so … [Continue]

As always, all opinions are mine alone.  #WhereFunBegins #CollectiveBias Yesterday was a minimum day for my kids, so I decided that we should all head to the park up the street for some fun. The days are getting longer so the sun is up until just a little past 8 pm, which means we had plenty of time for a lot of fun in the sun. Since the day prior was Mother's Day, I invited a few of my girlfriends in the neighborhood to meet up with us so we could catch (sort of as a belated Mother's Day together) while all our kids played together and I even provided some goodies at the park to keep us occupied. I'd picked up a … [Continue]

Disclosure: I participated in a Influencer Activation for Guy Fieri Sausage. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation When I'm flipping through the channels on my tv, I often stop on the Food Network for ideas. More often than not, I end up catching one of Guy Fieri's shows or appearances and end up getting caught up in the excitement of crazy ingredients and hole in the wall diners. I often end up hitting record because I see a sauce that piques my interest or a recipe I'd like to recreate. Now you can recreate some of that excitement right at home too since Guy Fieri has his own line of products available for … [Continue]

I received complimentary products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. It's that time of year where the days seem longer, the sunshine stays a little longer and warm weather is upon us! This is also the time of year I start thinking about picnics, cookouts, barbecues and potlucks with my friends and family. It's not like we don't have plenty of reasons to celebrate this time of year, in our immediate family alone we have 2 birthdays and a wedding anniversary in April, 2 birthdays in May, Mother's Day and Memorial Day. We always kick … [Continue]

Salami and Veggies Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? I sure didn't, until I received an amazing array of goodies consisting of various cheese and butter varieties from Kerrygold as a part of their loyalty program. They tipped me off that April 12th was National Grilled Cheese Day, but the party isn't only contained for that day alone, it's grilled cheese time all month long! Now let me tell you a little something about sandwiches in this house. My husband loves his sandwiches. He will have my breakfast sandwich, peanut butter and jelly, cold cuts and cheese, tuna, anything really. He loves his sandwiches. This has trickled down to the kids and I can't even begin to tell you how many … [Continue]

Yogurt Filled Chocolate Covered Raspberries

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. As always, all opinions are mine alone. #MullerMoment #CollectiveBias When I first started this blog two and a half years ago I very rarely had any "me-time". I was a full time stay at home mom, with a three year old and a one year old that took up so much of my time. I honestly don't know how I managed during that time, from what I recall I don't think I ever slept. Now that life has calmed down a bit, the kids are older, the littlest ones are in school and I can actually plan my days and have a schedule, I try to pencil in some time for myself. Growing up as an only child, I'm really not used to all … [Continue]
