Roasted Pecan Dip with Fruit

Fruit made even better with this dip.

Seems like I’m posting a lot of dessert recipes lately but this dip is perfect for summer get-togethers and so easy to make.

What’s your favorite fruit? Mine is any kind of berry; strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. If it ends in “berry” I like it. Or, on the other hand, I love mandarin oranges (the canned ones) mixed with bananas. My least favorite fruits would be pears and apples or grapes that are as big as golf balls; I won’t buy grapes when they are huge and I haven’t seen a […]

Sable Cookies with Flowers

A beautiful floral tasting cookie.

These should have been handed out at “the wedding” last weekend as favors.

Don’t these cookies look like I robbed the little flower girls’ baskets at the royal wedding last weekend? Well I didn’t; they came from my yard.

My alarm was not set for 4:00 a.m. but my recorder was and once I was awake I turned it on and did a pretty quick catch up to the main event.

All of these flowers came from my yard except for the little in bachelor button flowers which were actually from some Bachelor […]

Blueberry Lemon Cake

Lemon and blueberry, great combination.

Blueberries and Lemon go hand in hand for a great flavor combination.

I’ve done a blueberry coffee cake before but I can’t say that this is a coffee cake. Put a big dollop of whipped cream beside it and it makes a great dessert. Serve it for brunch, lunch or dinner; you will enjoy it.

The only thing I did wrong with this cake was to over bake it. And, that’s my fault. I kept testing it and even though the recipe called to still have a few moist crumbs sticking to the cake […]

Tropical Key Lime Cheesecake Sticks

Cute as cute can be!

How do I describe these little cookies — crunchy, cheesecakey, coconutty, crispy, citrusy, and creamy. Hey, those are all “c” words; and to top it off they are “cute”. Buy the cookie then whip up this cheesecake filling and you have a great add-on dessert to serve with some coconut ice cream or lime sorbet.

I love the flavor of key lime and you know when you make key lime desserts you are not suppose to add green food coloring. If you ever get key lime pie in a restaurant you do not want […]

Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake?

I attempted to make what was suppose to be a wonderful chocolate bundt cake for my friend’s, (Gordon) birthday. It was from a Paris blog that I have followed for years but I have to say the results were disappointing and in fact the driest chocolate cake I have ever made.

What had attracted me to this recipe was the shape of the bundt pan. Did I need another pan in my pantry, heck no. But, do I want one? Of course.

When I mention chocolate cake to my son Paul, we […]
