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. And wouldn’t it be fun to serve it on lasagna night […]

Strawberry Layered Dessert

I did not consciously set out to make a red, white and blue dessert yesterday.  My focus was using fresh strawberries (which are cheap right now) and using up a box of red Jell-O I’d purchased for no apparent reason. This was the result. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first since […]

Pineapple Icebox Cake

pineapple icebox cake

One of the best things my grandmother made was a dessert called banana split cake. It wasn’t really a cake at all, but a layer of cookie crumbs topped with a creamy custard of some sort, whipped cream, pineapple and bananas. Over the years I’ve tried several versions of the recipe trying to get it […]

Key Lime Filled Angel Food Cake

key lime mousse cake

After having dinner at a steakhouse last week, we decided to share dessert. Todd wanted Key lime pie and I wanted cheesecake.  Fuzz’s job was to break the tie, but since she was indifferent we settled on cheesecake so long as I promised to make a Key lime pie later in the week. This dessert […]

Lemon Lush

It’s starting to feel like Spring around here, so how about a nice lemony dessert? Er, sort of. This dessert doesn’t contain any actual lemons, but rather a box of instant lemon pudding, Cool Whip and cream cheese. In other words, it’s Todd’s favorite type of dessert. The recipe is called Lemon Lush and the […]

Malted Strawberry Angel Bavarian

strawberry bavarian

Today’s dessert was inspired by the Angel Strawberry Bavarian I found on the Duncan Hines website. It’s an angel food cake  broken up and suspended in a matrix of strawberry flavored cream, and I say “inspired” because while I’d intended to make the actual recipe, I ran into a few obstacles. The recipe starts with […]

Chocolate Eclair Cake

If you see a copy of the new Cook’s Country Magazine, make sure to pick it up! Mine came in the mail yesterday and it’s loaded with good stuff. There’s a fried chicken recipe that looks interesting, a small (loaf pan size) lasagna, and at least three desserts which I plan on making; …

Pumpkin Tiramisu

Pumpkin Tiramisu

A few weeks ago I saw a picture of a Bourbon pumpkin dessert in Las Vegas Magazine. It looked so good we almost booked a reservation at the restaurant serving it. But we didn’t. Instead, I decided to try making pumpkin tiramisu at home. After debating whether to make it round, square or …
