Creamy Lemon Triangles

lemon triangle

When I first saw this recipe in the June 2008 Every Day Food, I said “Ah Ha, Every Day Food! You are not fooling me!” I knew right away that the “creamy lemon bar” was really key lime pie made with lemons instead of lime in bar cookie form. It was brilliant, …

Chocolate Cream Pie Parfait

Chocolate Cream Pie in a Cup

Tonight’s dessert was supposed to be a chocolate cream pie — specifically, this one from Recipezaar. It had tons of good reviews and called for ingredients I had on hand. The pie came together seamlessly and I had a good feeling about it, but things didn’t work out as planned. The pie filling tasted …

This morning’s dessert recipe is from Pat, who linked to it in the comment section. Pat was sorry Cooks Recipes didn’t include pictures, but promised me it was a good dessert. As to its name, it has flour layers. The first layer is a crumbly crust made of vanilla wafers. The second layer is a […]

Pistachio Pudding Dessert

This is based on a recipe I found while hunting for green and slightly garish St. Patrick’s Day desserts. I didn’t get around to making it March, but yesterday I stumbled across it again while looking for cold, no-bake refrigerator desserts. It did require a little baking, but only enough to set the shortbread crust […]

White Chocolate Strawberry Tiramisu

Strawberry Tiramisu

I love tiramisu enough to know that this recipe is not even close to the real thing. However, it’s very good if you like creamy desserts with white chocolate and berries. I generally build this in an 8 inch square glass pan or double it and use a 13×9 inch rectangle.  But like real tiramisu, […]

Larry’s Mojito Cake

by on August 21, 2007 · 15 comments

Here’s a recipe you won’t find on the back of a bag. It was invented by my friend Janice’s husband, Larry who likes to put a creative twist on old recipes. This recipe, which evolved from a very old recipe involving crushed pineapple and angel cake mix, is one of Larry’s best. For the baking […]

Mini Butterfinger Icebox Cake

by on July 18, 2007 · 4 comments

Today’s recipe is something I made yesterday evening while the kids were running amuck through the house. I felt like building something, so I used what I had on hand and came up with what that I think, turned out pretty well. I made it for Todd, but remembered he didn’t like Butterfinger and …

Orange Creme Dessert

Orange Creme Dessert

After watching last night’s episode of Top Chef and seeing the contestants squirm at having to deal with American family favorites, I’m almost embarrassed to post this. Ha ha. Just kidding! Frankly, I think (some of) the Elks Lodge diners from last night’s episode would thoroughly enjoy it. It’s not a recipe you’d find in […]
