Chocolate Cream Pie

Having grown up in Texas, I’ve eaten at Luby’s Cafeteria more times than I can count.

Part of the fun of going through the line is and always has been getting to the end and seeing the mile high chocolate cream pies, lemon meringue, layer cakes and fruit pies. Oh, and lots of colored gelatin, which for some reason, tastes better than other gelatin — so much so that sick friends have asked other friends to bring them gelatin from Luby’s. Weird, I know.

Fig Cake

Today’s recipe is from The Triangle News and Observer.  It’s a fig cake, but instead of actual figs it gets its flavor and texture from fig preserves.  I had about 3/4 of a bottle of fig preserves leftover from another little cooking project, and since there are very few other places I use fig preserves, […]

Buttermilk Pie

Also known as Buttermilk Pie, Magnolia Pie is a dessert I re-discovered last Thanksgiving when my sister-in-law served one she’d bought from a lady in Llano. I don’t know the lady’s name or what recipe she used, but my family was crazy for that pie. I vowed to make it one day, but forgot about […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Bisquick

I bought a box of Bisquick a few months ago so I that I could make some Impossible Pies.  I’d planned on making the taco kind, which is one of the first things I learned to make as a kid, but I never got around to it and ended up just making an Impossible Cheesecake. […]

Layered Chocolate Dessert

Layered Chocolate Dessert

In our family this dessert goes by the name “Layered Chocolate Dessert”. It’s descriptive, but not very exciting, so I had to laugh a little when I saw that it had resurfaced on Pinterest as “Chocolate Lasagna”. Way to get attention! I like it.
