While Fuzz made popsicles, I made this. It’s a no-bake cheesecake and it won first place at the Maui Pineapple Festival in 2000. The recipe is by Kristine Snyder, who lives in Hawaii, plays the harp and wins lots of recipe contests. Kristine’s a great cook and I didn’t want to mess with perfection, but I still added […]

I’m still working my way through all the homemade chocolate wafers, and last night’s dessert was a raspberry icebox cake. The recipe below is for a full cake, but you can scale it down (which is what I did) and make the cake any size you like. This one is from Good Housekeeping, but I […]

Blood Orange Icebox Cake

Last night I asked Todd what he dessert he wanted for Valentine’s Day. His answer was something like “That thing with the stuff”. But somehow, I knew he was referring to Blood Orange Icebox Cake. Since he liked it enough to mention it again, request it no less, I’ll share the recipe. …

In fact, if you Google “Girl Scout Cookie Tiramisu” you’ll find recipes from various chefs who did just that. So today’s recipe was supposed to supposed to be a rich Girl Scout …

banana pudding

My dad came over for dinner tonight so I made banana pudding. I love making banana pudding, but don’t get to very often because Todd & Fuzz don’t like bananas. Tonight I made it anyway thinking that if the other components were good, the banana haters could just eat around the bananas…..and that’s …

tiramisu cheesecake

This was a great little dessert and I mean that literally because it was really small! I took the 13×9 inch version of Kraft’s tiramisu cheesecake, made a fourth of it and baked it in 9×5 inch loaf pan. Success! I’m very happy because now Todd gets his creamy dessert, but I won’t be saddled […]

Mini Oreo Tiramisus with Kahlua

Mini Oreo Tiramisu

I was having so much fun with Rita’s Oreomisu that I decided to try another version – specifically, one with coffee. After all, tiramisu means something like “pick me up” and while sugar might do it for a little while, I think it needs some caffeine. So here’s version 2.0.(Adapted from Clumbsy Cookie) Mini Oreo […]
