This post brought to you by Gro-ables. All opinions are 100% mine. ----- Can I admit something to you?  I'm NOT a gardener.  My dad will totally attest to this, because I ruined his garden more than once as a teenager when he left me in charge of watering while he was out of town.  I married someone who is good at it, but me? Not so much.  However, I LOVE fresh herbs, so when I heard about Gro-ables, I was so excited about giving them a try!! Gro-ables is a new product from Miracle Gro that's easy to use, and designed for the beginning gardner.  (Or one with a black thumb.  ☺ ) It's perfect for growing edibles---herbs and vegetables--and they've simplified the process so it doesn't … [Continue reading...]

Glazed Lemon Bread | simplykierste.com

I'm kind of obsessed with all things lemon.  I love it all year long, but springtime comes around, and I really start craving it.  So...I started the season off right this week, and made one of my all time favorites...Glazed Lemon Bread.  A dear friend shared this recipe with me over ten years ago, and I think of her every time I make it.  It's very similar to a poundcake, and you can easily serve this at brunch, or as dessert.  Either way, it's rich, dense, and absolutely delicious! I could seriously eat this glaze with a spoon!  It's made with fresh lemon juice, and is DIVINE! It's perfect on top of the bread that has a more subtle lemon flavor, and the two together...well...I could eat … [Continue reading...]
