White Frosting Recipe

A light and creamy white frosting that's perfect for topping your latest baked goods. Whether you use it to frost cupcakes, cookies, brownies or cake,  you'll be glad you tried it.

This frosting starts out with a cooked milk and flour base. It gives it a bit of an old-fashioned feel.

Because the recipe uses granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar, you won't have that overpowering sweetness that sometimes comes with frosting. Instead, you'll have a frosting that's smooth, creamy and irresistible.

White Frosting for Brownies

This recipe uses a bit of a different method to make - don't worry I'll walk you through it with a video tutorial.

I use this white frosting for brownies. Yes, you read that right! It's the perfect combination because it's not too sweet and it doesn't take away from the chocolate perfection that is the brownie. Top it with a little chocolate glaze and it is perfection!

Pasta salad recipe with Italian dressing

The warm weather is here and with it comes BBQ season. I love the ease and simplicity that comes with grilling.  And I LOVE the side dishes.

Especially this easy pasta salad. It's NOT your average "dump a bottle of dressing on the pasta" salad. There are a few special ingredients that bring this salad over the top. Don't worry it's still pretty darn easy.

This salad pairs well with my marinated grilled chicken or these chicken bacon sandwiches. It's also a great side to take to a pot luck (It always gets gobbled up).

It's easy to make ahead of time (see my make-ahead instructions below). For a printable recipe, scroll to the very bottom of the post.
