Limoncello Biscotti

Limoncello Biscotti 

I love biscotti. I could eat it everyday. You can make biscotti with so many variations. So I  wanted to make some the other day and wasn't sure what kind. I was missing the liquid ingredient. So I looked in my fridge and there are 2 bottles of Limoncello. One is creamy and the other is clear.

I have made Limoncello cake and it was awesome. So why not in biscotti? I decided to use the creamy version, just because.

Fall Pumpkin Bars

Fall Pumpkin Bars

I was cleaning up some of my old recipes and came across the pumpkin bars. They appeared in a Taste of Home in 2004. I don't remember ever making them, but I had all of the ingredients on hand so I said, "why not today". Do you save old magazines that have recipes? I could not believe how many I had and that was not counting all of my cook books.

Lemon Blueberry Scones

Lemon Blueberry Scones

I must admit that I have no will power when it comes to scones. I don't care what flavor they are, they are just so yummy. When I was teaching, we had a cafe bar downstairs that always had scones and of course. most days I was down there buying one. Now, I try not to eat many scones but once in awhile, I just want one. Are you a scone addict like me?

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week!

Fresh Peach Hand Pies

Fresh Peach Hand Pies

It is peach season in Georgia. On our trip to the farm last week, (you can read about that here) we brought home so many peaches.  Now it was time to make stuff with peaches.  First up was some peach hand pies.  I have a few peaches that were ripe and needed to be used soon, so hand pies came to mind. Little pockets of "yumminess".

Fresh Peach Sorbet

Fresh Peach Sorbet

It's summer time and that means fresh peaches. I am lucky because my brother-in-law manages a peach farm in the summer and pecans in the fall. I love making lots of peach dishes but I wanted some sorbet. Most of the recipes that I found had way too much sugar in them. I am trying to cut down on sugar so I thought I wouldn't be able to find one that would work.  

And then I found it! One from Taste of Home. Can you believe that there are only 4 ingredients? It turned out so yummy.

Snickerdoodle Crumb Bars

Snickerdoodle Crumb Bars

Do you ever want to make something sweet but you don't have all of the right ingredients. It seems like every recipe calls for something you don't have. 

Here is a recipe that uses ingredients that are pantry basics, so you can bake up a batch on demand. Nothing special needed.

Key Lime Pie Cupcakes

Key Lime Pie Cupcakes

When your key limes are all ripening at the same time, make cupcakes.  I have made lots of cupcakes in my time, but these were the best ever. Maybe, because I love the flavor of key limes.  I sent them into my husband's work, and they said, "they were over the top".

The key lime filling was amazing and the graham cracker topping took them over the top. The best part is you start with a box cake mix.

Buttermilk Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Buttermilk Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and of course it seems that pumpkin recipes are everywhere. So why not pumpkin donuts? 

We had few days of cooler weather, so something warm was on my list. Now some would think of chili or soup, not me, dessert.

Peach Sorbet

My brother-in-law gave me some peaches from him farm and I wanted to make some sorbet. Most of the recipes that I found had way too much sugar in them. I am trying to cut down on sugar so I thought I wouldn't be able to find one that would work.  

And then I found it! One from Taste of Home. Can you believe that there are only 4 ingredients? It turned out so yummy. Even my grand daughter who is not a peach fan liked it.

Fresh Apple Cake

My husband was out of town for business in Jacksonville, Florida and brought home from his trip 6-7 Granny Smith apples from the hotel. He said, "I know you like them and you enjoy baking with them".  Now does that sound like a request for some dessert or what? 

I have had this apple cake recipe for years but have not made it in quiet some time. I guess I just needed those apples!

Oatmeal, Craisins and White Chocolate Cookies

I love Craisins. Those dried cranberries are so yummy. Do you like them? I put them on salads, eat them out of the bag  and put them in lots of recipes. So when I saw this recipe for Oatmeal, Craisins and White Chocolate Chip Cookies I knew that I had to make them.

Spring, Easter and Carrot Cake

Welcome Friends

Why is it at this time of year, we think of carrot cake when we think of dessert?

Maybe the thought of that Easter bunny gnawing on those carrots, makes us get in the mood. Are you in the mood, I am?

So I had to have some carrot cake, but just not the typical kind. Let's put a spin on it - Carrot Cake Thumbprint Cookies

Awesome Pumpkin Benefits and Recipes

This time of year we see so many fabulous recipes that use pumpkin, from scones to cakes and tons of ideas in between. Pumpkin recipes abound and for a good reason - pumpkin is good for you. Here are some health benefits of pumpkin taken from Medical News Today and some recipes you can try.

Pumpkin is an extremely nutrient dense food, meaning it is chock-full of vitamins and minerals but low on calories.

Easter Mini Cheesecakes

Welcome Friends!

Cheesecake is just one of those desserts  that you can make in so many ways: Chocolate, New York style, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Macadamia nut. Are you getting my drift here? Endless possibilities!
Once a month I bake for my husband's office. It gives me a chance to make desserts which is my favorite thing to do, but hate having too much dessert around.

These Easter Mini Cheesecakes came from Kraft. I thought they would be great to send in and a little Easter thrown in as well. They are super easy to make.

Carrot cake on the healthier side

I love carrot cake, but I don't make it too often because of all the calories.  I was so excited when I found this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that cut the calories off the traditional recipe. Instead of all the oil, you can use mango juice.

As some of you my know, I have mango trees and we had so many mangoes this year. I am always looking for mango recipes, so I am giving this a try.

Healthy Mango Parfaits

Still making dishes with all my mangoes. I love to have a light and refreshing dessert once in awhile and these parfaits hit the spot. I changed the original recipe from Kraft Foods to make it healthier. The family had no idea I changed to light ingredients.

Chocolate Ganache-filled Macaroons

It seems like for ever since I wrote a post. I admire all of you that post everyday or almost everyday. Our Tiny has been such a focus for me and when she takes a turn for the worst, it is hard to deal with. She requires so much of my time. They have no idea why she is fine and then it starts all over again. So back to the hospital she goes today.

So what does Tiny have to do with Chocolate Ganache-filled Macaroons. Absolutely nothing. I had some extra time this week (wow, what a treat!) and since I haven't sent in goodies to my husband's work, I thought I would do a little baking.
