Lemon Curd

by TT July 15th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
I've been baking since my early teens, maybe even longer.  While I've never baked or cooked professionally, I have learned many skills and techniques.  So, you would think by this time I would trust my instincts.  However, when I am making something new to me, I follow the recipe

Pretzel Caramel Pie

by TT June 17th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
Last week I shared my latest creation of sweet and salty: Sweet & Crunchy Pretzel Clusters.  I also mentioned that I used those same bite-sized snacks as part of a pie.  It seemed that the harmony of salty pretzels and sweet brown sugar coating could make a wonderful crust

Sweet & Crunchy Pretzel Clusters

by TT June 10th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
I think I have become obsessed with the combination of sweet and salty.  Whether I'm making a salad, sandwich, or dessert, I often look to find a way to include both flavors in my dish.  Let me offer a couple examples.  Recently I made a side salad that had

Peanut Butter Ice Cream

by TT April 15th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
We have had our ice cream maker for about a year and a half.  In that time we have tried a number of flavors:  vanilla, coconut, pistachio, coffee, and more.  We haven't used the ice cream much in the last few months, as winter weather isn't necessarily conducive to

Peanut Brittle

by TT January 28th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
A quick glance at this recipe for peanut brittle could make one think that it is ridiculously simple.  Boiling and stirring three ingredients does seem to be easy.  However, things aren't always what they seem.

I'm not trying to discourage readers from trying this recipe, I simply am offering a

My children are confirmed choco-holics.  Chocolate in almost any form is enjoyed by them:  cookies, cake, pie, granola bars, sandwiches even.  (Nutella has become a regular stocking stuffer for all of them.)  So, it is such a nice change of pace when they request something that doesn't have a

For our final week of holiday treats, I am pleased to share a recipe from one of the PKP specialists, Melissa Koerner.  She serves a dual role, as both a fitness expert and nutrition expert at My Fitness Tunes.  Melissa has been sharing her expertise with our readers since

Every Christmas season my mom makes my favorite cookie, Snickerdoodles.  These tiny sugar cookies are wrapped in delicious cinnamon sugar.  They are best when they are warm, but they are always good.  I especially love them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel.  The

Southern Peanut Butter Pie

by TT December 3rd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
Last year during the month of December I shared family favorite recipes from members of the PeKu Publications team.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning about others' family traditions, as did our readers.  Thus, I have decided to make this an annual tradition. Over the next several weeks, I will be

Irresistible Caramel Sauce

by TT November 19th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
Last week I wrote about a very delicious apple cake that I had made.  It truly was enjoyable on its own.  Without sauce, the cake was tender and had a nice mix of apples and pecans in each slice.  It was tasty enough that I would want to have

Chocolate Whipped Cream Sundae

by TT Jr. November 14th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
If you ask me, ice cream does not have a "season".  You can eat it all year long. I don't care if it's winter, I'm still gonna eat it.  It's even better when it is homemade.  I love a decadent sundae the best.  And with all the fixings.  I

Apple Cake

Last weekend I had some free time and two hungry teens at home.  With schedules, like most families, that involve busy days and nights, it's not often that we make time for an indulgent evening of dinner and dessert.  However, last Sunday was quieter than usual, which prompted me
