Apple Butter Bundt Cake

I am partnering with Kauffman's Fruit Farm as a blog ambassador. I have received these Kauffman's Fruit Farm products for free; however, all opinions remain my own. 

I am super excited to announce that I am a blog ambassador for Kauffman's Fruit Farm and Market in Bird in Hand, PA. So each month you will see a new recipe inspired by their wonderful products posted here on Served Up With Love.  Although, I am not local to Kauffman's, I am so happy I can enjoy all the goodies they offer online.

Lemon Spaghetti

Even though we are almost in the middle of August, the weather can still be pretty hot and humid here in Virginia. When it is hot out, I just want to eat light meals that don't weight me down too much. If you have been here for a while then you know that I am a huge fan of anything lemon. So naturally, Lemon Spaghetti ranks at the top of my favorite summer time meals.

Tomato and Cucumber Salad

A few of the things we planted in the garden are doing really well. Our tomato and cucumber plants are thriving. I am gathering veggies almost every day. I am going to be so sad when this ends. Of course the best way to enjoy those tomatoes is on a sandwich. There is nothing better than a fresh picked tomato sliced and put between two pieces of bread slathered with mayo and sprinkled with good ole salt and pepper. That is the perfect lunch on a hot summer day.

Garden Fresh Dill Dip

Dill is one of my favorite herbs to use in the kitchen. I really wish I had planted a lot more of it this year in the herb garden. I went through it pretty quick and now it has gone to seed. But before that happened, I used the heck out of it. I mean, I made this dip ALOT! 

Hi, My name is Melissa, and I am addicted to dill dip. I like to make it without anyone knowing I made it and eat it all by myself. Ha...just kidding.... uh maybe? Um yeah...we will go with that!

During the holidays my Mom usually makes a dill dip out of a packaged mix. We all love it, including the kids. It has become a staple at all of our holiday get togethers. So I knew my biggest critic on this dip was going to be my Mom.   I know she was a little hesitant that it was going to be as good as what she makes but she was excited to try it. When I made the first batch, yes, I have made many over the last couple of weeks, I saved her a little bowl. 

As she took her first bite she was a little quiet. She was inspecting every aspect of flavor in that bite. When she was done her response was "you've done it now!" She LOVED it and said it was spot on. So you all know what that means, it is all on me now.
