I’m a bona fide Nutella-holic.

I pretty much covered that little factoid about me in my last post, and here I am again, bringing you another hazelnut-stuffed dessert, only this time with bananas. Absolutely different, totally delightful, unbelievably satisfying for hazelnut + banana lovers such as myself. [Read more…]

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. (It’s special to give them too. I get really excited about giving hostess gifts!)

It’s apple season!!! Yayyyy! McIntosh and Granny Smith and Honeycrisps, oh my!

One of the things on my bucket list is to visit an apple orchard and pick my own apples. My home state doesn’t have any, sadly (orange groves and strawberry patches for miles, though), but one of these days I’m gonna get to one, and then my only problems will be which apples to eat first, and how to get them all home!


Of course, whipping up a batch of these Mini Cinnamon Apple Hand Pies will be the first thing I do when I get them there! [Read more…]
