lemony lime bars

Tangy an sour – with a crisp buttery base – these citrus bars are delicious!  Deeelicious. True love for me.  Alice Medrich warns readers that these have a serious pucker and bite and wow, they really do.  You can make these with lemon juice or lime juice, or as I did, with both.  In the…

nectarine, cherry, and berry crisp

Yes, another fruit crisp.  I just love love love them.  So much easier than a pie and really (to me) just as good! Made this for Father’s Day – Rob’s family was in and I thought they would enjoy this.  (Served favorite fudgy brownies too for my chocolate lovers.)  Here the nectarine, raspberries and cherries…

multigrain waffles

Filled with oats, whole wheat flour, flax seeds, eggs, Greek yogurt, buttermilk and more…these multigrain waffles will certainly fill you up.  Decided to try another breakfast treat for Andy and had success with these.  I had to fiddle with the recipe since I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand but they came out great!…

apricot raspberry tart (with easy press in crust)

Jen’s too if I’m remembering right.  I meant to take notes, but just couldn’t manage to stuff myself and write about it at the same time….

cherry almond cobbler

If you like cherries and marzipan, then this is for you. I brought this cobbler along with few other treats to a dinner party.  This one was either LOVED and ADORED by people, or really not loved at all. Comments ranged from “this is my absolute favorite” and “hands down, this is amazing”…to “oh, this…

peach blueberry crisp with pecan topping

This was so beautiful, but really, more importantly, scrumptious!  I brought this crisp with two other fruit desserts to a dinner party and this one was probably the most universally loved.  Fine Cooking Magazine featured this recipe months ago – it was the colors in the photo that propelled me to pull it, save it and eventually…

marble cupcakes

I wanted to make a treat that would make both vanilla and chocolate lovers happy so I made these delightful marble cupcakes.  Andy, Greg, Sylvie – they all loved these and really enjoyed picking the one that suited them best.  Sylvie and her friend Melissa both picked plain (no icing which was shocking to me)….
