DESSERTS

Santa Alert! If you make this Christmas bread pudding yours  gonna have to clear a parking space for more than one sleigh! This stuff is what sugar plum dreams (or should I say nightmares) are made of!!! Nightmares from the calories that is. But, we’re not actually counting them at this time of year, are we? It is packed with plenty of apples, raisins & pecans, and the vanilla sauce is both easy & divine!

Apple Gooey Cake

Apple Gooey Cake

This cake is a family fav and so worth the trouble. It’s got two steps, but otherwise is very straight forward. It feeds a lot of people, mostly because it is quite rich. A small portion goes a long way!

Key Lime Pie Jars

Ok, y’all the temps have been 100+ In Texas! This no bake dessert is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. You’re gonna love this easy & refreshing dessert!

Boston Cream Pie

Boston Cream Pie

This is my rendition of Boston Cream Pie. It was first created for the grand opening of Boston’s Parker House, now known as the Omni Parker House. As you can see it’s not a pie. It’s a vanilla cake filled with pastry cream and topped with chocolate ganache. At the Omni they spread some of the pastry cream on the sides and press almonds onto it. My hubs loves this dessert, so he usually gets it for his birthday or Father’s Day. Enjoy!

Homemade Graham Crackers

Homemade Graham Crackers

I’ve been wanting to make homemade Graham crackers for awhile. After researching a number of recipes, here is what worked well for me. They were a big hit with the family!

Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake

Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake

My mom used to have her friends over all the time for a “kaffeeklatsch” and she would serve all kinds of coffee cake. This is one of my favs. It’s moist and bursting with blueberries. Enjoy!

Lemon Buttermilk Pie

Lemon Buttermilk Pie

I tweaked my Rustic Buttermilk Pie recipe to make it lemony. Turned out awesome! I just love tart lemon desserts, and this one hits the mark. The dusting of powdered sugar is a nice added touch.

DESSERTS

 

My family asks for this dessert for every birthday and special occasion. It really is good, but sometimes I cringe when they ask for it – I think I make it at least 20 times a year. Be careful if you make it – you might find yourself in the same position I’m in – Making it over and over!

Cherry Pound Cake

Cherry Pound Cake

This is one of my favorite recipes from my collection of Southern Living Cookbooks. I just love the cherry flavor and pink color. The original recipe calls for cream cheese frosting, but I think that’s just too rich. I prefer a little icing made from powdered sugar, maraschino cherry juice and milk. This is such a cute cake to make for Valentines Day or Easter.
