Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream

IMG_5867

Gotta try at least one new ice cream recipe this summer.

Have you ever seen fields of lavender? When we were in France several years ago I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see fields of purple; but we were there too early in the year. I have seen fields of lavender in Texas at Becker Vineyards and also at Matanza Creek in Santa Rosa, California which were both breathtaking. Since purple is one of my favorite colors I wanted to try some using some culinary lavender I had bought in Austin awhile back.

I was taught years […]

Vienna Sacher Torte

IMG_3949

I didn’t have to go to Vienna to try this cake.

These are the post cards I got from my friend, so I just had to try the cake.

I have a friend, Janet who just spent ten days in Austria with her granddaughter, Sarah, who is in school there for the year studying engineering. I loved getting emails and text from her with their iternary and what they were eating every day.

So on to one of her desserts of the day. I’ve heard of sacher torte for years but never made it. But after getting a […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thanks David for this recipe.

I love David Lebovitz blog Living The Sweet Life In Paris. We were in Paris and southern France back in 2012. Paris was kind of a blur with two bad knees that didn’t know then that in 3 months they would be replaced. So many restaurants, good food, stops in the afternoon for frites and wine or macarons that it’s hard to remember that trip unless I go back and read my journal about all the great food we had and all the interesting things we saw.

Through David’s blog I can see Paris […]

Finished off all those raspberries.

With summer almost here and all those berries starting to come in season, ya need to put this on your list of things to try; especially if you need a good cobbler type dessert to throw together to take to a gathering of friends.

I love to pick my own berries and hoping timing is right this year for us to be around when blackberries, strawberries and raspberries are in season for the picking. I’ve given up on picking blueberries or at least to freeze them because I don’t care for them once they […]

Mini Double Chocolate Berry Cakes

IMG_2249

Good things come in small packages.

Good things do come in small packages. If a person with normal cravings is served a large piece of chocolate cake what do you think they would do? Maybe eat the whole thing or eat just a few bites then wish later they had finished the cake. I know I don’t want to go to bed with chocolate regrets knowing that if I had finished that cake I would be completely satisfied.

You can finish this cake and not have any guilt feelings about eating too much even though you cleaned your plate […]
