Autumn Apple Cheesecake

Autumn Apple Cheesecake

Are you starting to collect recipes for upcoming holiday meals? Maybe it’s just me, but I like to serve different things each year, as much as I can get away with it. Especially when it comes to desserts. There are so many good choices-why eat […]

Peanut Buster Ice Cream Pie

Peanut Buster Ice Cream Pie

Do you live near a Dairy Queen? Lucky you! It’s one of the things I miss in our little town. Our DQ closed in 2009, but it was part of our community for many years. Countless times we were there with our son on hot […]

Glazed Coffee Ring

Glazed Coffee Ring

How many recipes from your childhood are you still making today? I call those “retro” recipes. Webster describes retro as “pleasantly reminiscent of an earlier time” which sounds far better than old and frumpy. Even though this coffee ring recipe is nothing new, I’ve yet […]

Peach Puff Pastry Tarts

Peach Puff Pastry Tarts

I loooove puff pastry. From the freezer section, I mean. Not sure I’d enjoy making it from scratch-all those thin layers of dough, not to mention all the buttering and folding, and washing and drying. Wait-that’s the laundry. But the buttering and folding of scratch […]

No-Churn Snickerdoodle Peach Ice Cream

No-Churn Snickerdoodle Peach Ice Cream

No-churn ice cream-have you made it? Or are you tardy to the party like myself? Truth is, I just couldn’t see how whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk (the basis for most no-churn recipes) could metabolize into anything close to ice cream or, at least, […]

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

Right now I am approximately 85% squash. I’m eating squash with dip, in stir fry, in veggie omelets, and in desserts like this Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake. If you’ve never had a zucchini baked good, I promise, cross my heart, that done properly, you’ll never […]

Shortcut Thin Mints

Shortcut Thin Mints

Have you exhausted your Girl Scout cookie supply yet? Yeah, thought so. It’s a long time from February to July, isn’t it? I guess you could call around, see if your friends have any stashed in the freezer you could buy. Or you could make […]

Vanilla Funfetti Waffles

Vanilla Funfetti Waffles

Breakfast that can be dessert, too? Gimme! These funfetti waffles have a delicious vanilla flavor that reminds me of cake. We’ve eaten them with fruit and yogurt (and syrup), as well as topped with ice cream and chocolate syrup. They’re simple, and made with pantry […]

Biscoff Banana Icebox Pie

Biscoff Banana Icebox Pie

Guys, I’m sorry to say no airline will be serving this Biscoff banana pie. You’ll have to make it yourself and settle for the little pack of cookies inflight. Frequent Delta Airlines travelers know I’m talking about those addictive Biscoff cookies in the distinctive red […]

Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies

If you loved the no-bake cookies from your 1970’s school cafeteria, I have news for you: this isn’t your recipe. Undoubtedly many of my peers thought those cookies (actually ours were bars, apparently the scooping of no-bake cookies being too time consuming) were just the […]

It’s the Fourth! Sweet!

It’s the Fourth! Sweet!

If you haven’t decided on a sweet treat for your holiday tomorrow-it’s not too late! I’ve rounded up a variety of goodies perfect for your Fourth of July. Some feed a bunch & some feed a hungry few. Only two require an oven! Fix one […]

Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

Tutti Frutti Ice Cream

If you think this looks like plain ol’ vanilla ice cream: wrong. And if you think this is the second Italian dish I’ve turned on it’s head this week (thisĀ is the first one): you’re right. Sorry. This recipe has been in my family for so […]
