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 […]

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 …
