Toasted Coconut and Lime Shortbread Cookie

🎶She put the lime in the coconut and “baked” ’em all up…

I’ve never heard of the guy that sang “Coconut”; (Harry Nilsson); but it’s one of those “worm” songs that after it gets in your head it is hard to rid yourself of those lyrics. So, when I first saw this cookie and made and tasted this cookie that song popped in my head and I knew I was going to make it again, and again, and again.

Baking is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen and I have made thousands, maybe even […]

Amaretto Date Shakes

Shake it up for Christmas with this date shake.

When we were in Israel it took me a while to realize that the row after row, field after field of palm trees were date palms and produced the Medjool date.

I never realized there was more than one kind of date on the market; some others are Barhi, Deglet Noor, Halawy, Khdraw, Medjool, Thoory and Zahidi. In fact there are over 1,500 varieties of dates grown in the world. The Medjool date is know as the Cadillac of dates and originated in Morocco and I love the size of […]

Blackberry Cobbler with Cream and Pistachio Dust

Spiced whipped cream and some dust.

So you say “I make cobbler all the time”. I’ve made many cobblers over the years and have made them with pie crust (usually homemade), I’ve used batter topping (not my favorite) and some with puffed pastry. My favorite remains pie crust topping because that’s how my mother and grandmother made cobbler.

When we were visiting my sister back in August she made a cobbler and simply cut prepared purchased pie crust into small squares and covered the fruit and baked. How easy can it get? And, it was really good.

We had […]

Blackberry Peach Bourbon Cobbler

End of the summer fruits…

Even though summer officially ends on September 22 I feel like we are getting to the end of our fresh berries and peaches and for the rest of the year will just have to take our chances getting a good ripe peach or plump sweet berries of any type.

I love blackberries, I love fresh peaches and I love cobbler. The way my mother and grandmother made cobbler was with pie crust strips on the bottom of the pan, then the fruit and on top of the fruit more pie crust strips and then […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

Chocolate and peanut butter, what more to say.

So you have match ups like Tom & Jerry (if you are old enough), Batman and Robin, Macaroni & Cheese, Micky and Minny, Romeo and Juliet, Bacon & Eggs; need I go any further before adding peanut butter and chocolate.

I’ve never been a peanut butter and jelly person (don’t think I have ever eaten it); but I can’t imagine peanut butter in a sentence without adding chocolate along with the description of a yummy, sweet, chocolatey, peanut buttery dessert.
