Call me a snob if you must, but I just can’t settle for normal desserts anymore.

If you frequent my blog at all (it’s right here in case you haven’t been,) then you can tell by looking at the recipes I share. It’s not that I don’t appreciate them…don’t get me wrong, I totally do!


I just like to mix it up a little. Take this Tropical Bliss Strawberry Shortcake, for example. It’s shortcake elevated, and is totally worth the minimal amount of effort required to throw them together.

Rosemary Sea Salt – Quick Hostess or Neighbor Gift

A quick and delicious recipe for Rosemary Sea Salt that makes a great holiday hostess gift!

Rosemary Sea Salt - My Cooking Spot-4

Hey y’all! It’s Stephanie from Sustaining the Powers here again today. Raise your hand if you love to give hostess gifts. Raise your hand again if you love to receive hostess gifts! Maybe it’s because I’m from Texas, but my mom always taught me you should never show up at a party empty handed.


You can bring some flowers, text the host (if you know them) and ask if you can bring a dish, drink or dessert, bring a bag of ice (parties almost always need more ice), bring a bottle of wine (or here in Colorado it’s a 6 pack of craft beer), or make a little something for your hostess, but it’s always special to be on the receiving end of a hostess gift.
