Healthy Carrot Mango Cake

Healthy Carrot Mango Cake

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.

We still are seeing mangoes here in the supermarket, so I thought I wold give it  try. You could always use frozen mangoes too.

Visiting Cold Hollow Cider Mill

Visiting Cold Hollow Cider Mill

While we were in Vermont, we took a few hours off to do some sightseeing. We stopped at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill.  People come from all over to visit this place. Even buses pulled in while we were there.

They have many products from Vermont like Maple syrup, apples and cider and gift ideas. Although these are all enticing, what draws me here are the apple cider donuts.

Peach Slab Pie with Sugar Cookie Crumble

Peach Slab Pie with Sugar Cookie Crumble

If you follow me, you know I received almost a bushel of peaches recently. We ate lots and then I put the rest in the freezer. I wanted to make something for my husband to take into work. I had seen recipes for slab pie and thought that would be great with the peaches. Instead of putting another crust on top, I crumbled sugar cookie dough on the top. How could it not be good?

Fresh Peach Pie

Fresh Peach Pie

It is peach time in Georgia. Well at least it is for me. We drove up to Georgia to pick up some peaches. There is nothing like a Georgia peach. Pick one of them up and eat it and it is like nothing you can get in stores. The juice was running down my arm. 

If you follow me, you might remember that my brother-in-law manages a pecan farm but they also have groves of peaches. So each year I get a bushel. In the past I have picked them up and taken them to my son's house when we were on our way to visit, but this year I wanted peaches in my freezer. 

Hubby usually comes up on Thursday evenings, so I made him a peach pie.

Easter Mini Cheesecakes

Easter Mini Cheesecakes

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!
I bake for my husband's office often. 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 into the office and a little Easter thrown in as well. They are super easy to make.

Let's see how to make these scrumptious little morsels.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

With Valentine's Day only a few days away, how about a tasty morsel for your sweetie, or maybe just to indulge yourself. The nice thing about these bites are that they are "bite size"!  So if you are trying to watch the calories, these little bites will do the trick. Now I can't say they are low calories, but you only need a small bite to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Coconut Bundt Cake

Yummy Coconut Bundt Cake

I am not sure why, but I love to make bundt cakes. Maybe it's the look of a bundt cake or maybe I just like to tell my husband I made a "bundt" cake. Remember that scene from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" when the mother brings a bundt cake to their house. That part always makes me laugh. She ends up putting a flower in the center.


Well, I digress, back to my bundt cake. This one is made with coconut. My husband is not a big coconut fan, but he loved this cake. The cake is very moist and just heavenly. Can a cake be that - heavenly?

Sorta Smores Brownies

I called these "sorta" smores brownies" because I can't really say that they are really "smores brownies".  It all started when I found a package of these Nestle Smores Morsels Mix package in my son's pantry.  They had a cookie recipe on the package but I was being lazy.

Luscious Limoncello Cake

One of my Italian friends gave me a bottle of Limoncello and it has been in my refrigerator for a while now.  I finally decided to make something with it. I searched for recipes that used Limoncello and found one on Allrecipes that sounded really good.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

My husband loves brownies and I like to find new ways to make them. When I saw this recipe on Martha Stewart I thought he would like them. Her recipe called for making home made brownies. I already had a box of brownie mix so I decided to use that instead.

Also, she used chocolate chunks and I decided to use dark chocolate chips.

Caramel Pecan Brownies

We all love brownies, right? Oh, what variations you can do with brownies: frosted, powdered sugar, nuts, cream cheese. 

Well, I have another variation to share with you - Caramel Pecan Brownies. These brownies go together quickly since you start with a box of brownie mix.

Use a brownie mix and Kraft Bits to make these gooey bars.

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

Sometimes you just need some chocolate! Right? That's where I was. So I found this flourless chocolate cake from Martha Stewart. Her cake called for adding espresso to the batter and the sauce. I don't have a problem with it but my husband doesn't like coffee. Can you believe that he has NEVER drank coffee? Therefore, he doesn't like it in deserts, so I left it out.

Lemon Bundt Cake

My lemon trees have been loaded with Meyer's lemons. I have been giving them away and still had so many. So why not make a cake - a lemon bundt cake.

Peanut Butter Ripple Brownies

Chocolate and peanut butter just go together. You have to love that combination. So when one of the guys at my husband's office asked for something chocolaty, I thought these just might satisfy his sweet tooth for chocolate.

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. 

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

Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

I just returned from visiting my children and grand kids in Vermont. The weather was great - warm during the day, with no humidity' and cool crisp evenings. 

I arrived home to Florida with cooler weather as well, so when I saw this recipe for glazed pumpkin donuts, I thought these would be great for this cool weather day.

Banana Cake with Pecan-Crumb Topping

A few weeks ago a friend gave me some bananas and I made this Banana Bread with dark chocolate chips. Well, two days ago he sent more bananas, lots more(like 46 of them). I made another batch of banana bread and this one - Banana Cake with Pecan Crumb Topping.

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

You can never have too much chocolate - at least that is my motto. These muffins will put the zing in your step in the morning or anytime of the day.

Since I send most of my desserts into my husband's work, they are always asking for something chocolate so I thought these would be perfect.

We love key limes and I have a key lime tree that is producing like crazy. So I am making lots of recipes with key limes like these Key Lime Macaroons.

Luscious Cherry Bars

Do you have some great recipes that you haven't made in a very, very long time? Well, I do. I am not sure if I forget about them or with all of the new recipes showing up, they seem to replace my old favorites. Whatever the reason, I was looking for a recipe and found this Luscious Cherry Bars recipe and thought wow, I haven't made this in years. This would be a great dessert to make and send into my husband's office.
