Homemade Banana Pudding

Homemade Banana Pudding

  Homemade Banana Pudding One of my daughter's favorite desserts is my Homemade Banana Pudding.  Since I got such a great deal at Aldi the other day on organic bananas - 59 cents for 2 pounds, I decided to go ahead and get everything I needed to make it while I was there.  When my daughter saw the bananas, heavy cream, and Vanilla Wafers, she said, "Oh Mom, are you making what I think you are?"  Unfortunately, I was a...

Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart

Easy as Pie Apple Tart Since I had a half pound sheet of dough left from making my Gruyère Asparagus Tart, I decided to make my Easy as Pie Apple Tart.  The hardest thing about making this dessert is cutting the apples into super thin slices. Oh, and to stop eating it.  That is the really hard part. Looks Like You Were in the Kitchen All Day What I love most about this tart is that it looks so beautiful, your family...

Caramel Cream Cheese Frosted Apple Cake

Caramel Cream Cheese Frosted Apple Cake If you tried my Carrot Cake recipe and liked it then you are going to love my Caramel Cream Cheese Frosted Apple Cake recipe.  For several days, I have been looking at the bowl of apples on the counter and thinking I need to make something with those apples.  My mind wandered to my delicious Carrot Cake and I got the great idea to change the recipe up a little.  I substituted apples for the...

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies Fall is one of my favorite times to bake.  And since the Apple Pie I made the other day was a flop, I was in the mood for something sweet with a hint of cinnamon.  After baking two trays of these Peanut Butter Pecan Oatmeal Cookies, I was going to eat a couple to make sure they were tasty.  Obviously, they were delicious because a couple turned into six.   They literally melt in your mouth....

Honey Pecan Stuffed Shortbread Cookies

Honey Pecan Stuffed Shortbread Cookies It has been too long since I have posted a recipe so today I have something that I hope you will like as much as we did. I am calling these Honey Pecan Stuffed Shortbread Cookies.  They are similar to kurabiye (which is cookie in Turkish and Qurabiyə in Arabic) in that they are made using a wooden cookie mold. In Middle Eastern cuisine, there is a cookie similar to the one I have made...

Maple Pecan Pie Cannoli

Maple Pecan Pie Cannoli I know this is very late in getting posted but as promised, here is the Maple Pecan Pie Cannoli recipe.  I had made a delicious Maple Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving and we really loved it.  I wanted to do something different from the traditional cakes, pies, etc. that we always have at Christmas.  Since my sister, Kim loves Cannoli, I figured the answer was to marry the yummy pie filling with some Mascarpone and make a...

Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for my Sissy’s Birthday

Birthday Ice Cream with all the Trimmings

First of all, I would like to apologize for not posting in over a month and a half.  I had so much going on in the past two months that I have not had much time for cooking.  In fact, I think I have only cooked once in the past three weeks.  I started a new job and I am having to drive 45 minutes each way to go for my training.  I also moved.  I am still unpacking!  Anyway...

Strawberry Guri Guri

Strawberry Guri Guri

I thought our Sunday dinner couldn't get any better but boy was I wrong.  The cherry on top was actually the strawberry on top. . . as in Strawberry Guri Guri.   We filled our bellies with Boston Butt, corn, purple hull peas, sliced tomatoes and saffron infused ic pilav.  I made my basic ic pilav recipe but instead of water, I used saffron infused water.   I will have to post the recipe for that soon.   I just...
