Angel Food Cake

by TT July 9th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
Our youngest has a Christmas Eve birthday.  A few years ago we offered him the option of celebrating it near his half-birthday.  He seemed to think this was a good idea, as the day would be all his and not rushed with other family and holiday events.  Thus, for

Festive White Chocolate Strawberries

Ideally, I would have posted this recipe on Monday.  If I were running just a little bit late, I would have published it yesterday.  However, I am quite off schedule with my cooking and writing, as we spent the past weekend at a family reunion.  Thus, this 4th of

Dessert Crepes

Last week was filled with events for our family.  In a four-day span we attended an elementary school promotion ceremony, a middle school academic awards night, and a middle school promotion ceremony.  Thus, our evenings were busier than usual.  So, on Wednesday with just our regularly schedule events, we

Carrot Cupcakes

by TT June 11th, 2012| Desserts
It's hard to believe that it's been so long, but four and a half years ago I wrote about making carrot cake for my parents.  Since that time, carrot cake has become a favorite dessert item in our house, serving as the dessert of choice for many birthdays

Sweet Cheese Filled Strawberries

On Monday we celebrated my mom's birthday.  I must say it was quite a success, she enjoyed it very much.  And obviously, because we were celebrating her, she was not allowed to cook.  I immediately volunteered to "cook" the appetizer because what she wanted to have was just up

Balsamic Strawberries

The other night was a cooking-free Tapas Monday.  On this occasion, the lack of cooking wasn't dictated by a busy schedule; rather, it was created due to a shopping trip my husband and I made over the weekend.  Spending some time at an Italian pasta and cheese shop, we

To end our St. Patrick's Day recipe series, a dessert seemed like the perfect fit.  What we found was a recipe that is the perfect combination of sweet dessert and Irish beverage.  With a stout, such as Guinness, and dark chocolate in the batter, this cupcake is sure to

Now that we've talked about a variety of dishes for St. Patrick's Day dinner and brunch, it's time to consider a little bit of dessert.  Honestly, I don't usually think too much about dessert for this holiday, as the meal tends to be heavy.  Plus, when St. Patrick's Day

Banana Frozen Yogurt

As a couple who shares a common love of food, my husband and I spend a fair amount of time searching for new-to-us restaurants, sharing articles about interesting recipes, and ogling cool kitchen tools.  However, we don't own a tremendous amount of small appliances.  We have the basics, plus

by TT February 13th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
Ok, my friends, tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  If you haven't made a plan for your loved one, you need to do so now.  Most likely dinner reservations are not an option.  Creating an entire dinner menu, purchasing the items, and cooking may work, if you're an organized person with

With less than a week until Valentine's Day, it is time to start planning.  If you're hoping to make a restaurant reservation, you probably should stop reading this article and make a few calls.  When you discover that the only times available are 4:30 or 9:45, you can come
