Delightful Delectables- Smooth-Sailing Peanut Butter Sauce, The Perfect Peanut Butter Topping

by Maggie Kelleher

By now you might know that I had a little coffee cake photo shoot with some friends in prom dresses last week, and they were the judges in a battle between peanut butter and jelly. Okay, it was between peanut butter sauce and berry sauce, but it's in that realm.

Anyways, I already posted the recipe for the delicious Easy-Does-It Berry Sauce and today I am going to share with you how to make the peanut butter sauce, so you can host round two of this battle yourself.

by Maggie Kelleher

If you saw our most recent blog post, "Let Them Eat Coffee Cake- My Grandma's Is Perfect For Tea Time & Beyond," then you know that my sister hosted a formal tea-party for some of her friends last weekend, and we had a photo shoot and some delicious cake!

I promised the recipes to the sauces I made to complement an amazing My Grandma's Ted Williams Chocolate Cake, so here is... drumroll please...

Let Them Eat Coffee Cake- My Grandma's Is Perfect For Tea Time & Beyond

by Maggie Kelleher

I had a bit of an adventure this weekend. My little sister's friends came over for a coffee cake tea party, and knowing that I run this blog, they decided to make it a formal affair. No one can deny that high school seniors know how to create dramatic effect and take the time to enjoy their summer!

So bring on the prom dresses, because these girls dressed up in high-style for My Grandma's of New England.

Some might think that coffee cake is reserved only for mornings, coffee breaks, or bridge parties, and served plain (or slightly warmed) with the beverage of your choice.

I might disagree. I already know that My Grandma's coffee cakes are good anytime, day or night. But I can not disagree that a coffee cake breakfast is one of the best types of breakfast you can serve up.

Delightful Delectables- Pumpkin Spice Is Ready For Summer

by Maggie Kelleher

Coffee cake. It conjures up images of a December morning snuggle by the fireplace with a steaming cup of coffee, doesn't it? That's all I thought coffee cake was good for too, until I was introduced to My Grandma's of New England. 

In my first week as the new Social Media Intern at My Grandma's I had a large 3 lb Pumpkin Spice coffee cake in my hands and no idea what to do with it. It was summer after all, how do I serve coffee cake in the summer? Luckily, my sister was graduating High School that weekend and we had family coming over, so I knew I had family to share it with. I started brainstorming.

Summer might not officially be here yet, but a lot of our favorite summer events have already started, from Memorial day to graduation parties, proms, and even the upcoming end of the school year. And just like any grandmother, we here at My Grandma's love any event where our families can come together!

But it is not just the tin. To us, Father's Day kicks off the season of barbecues, bonfires, beach days, and backyard games. Our family loves to come together, celebrate, and play as the summer heats up and we are itching to make some summer 2014 memories.
