I have a serious weakness for fruit of all kinds.  This fruit salad is one of the best ways to enjoy fruit, anytime of the year. It is a great salad for potlucks, holidays and family get togethers, I call it the perfect, any occasion, recipe.

Hummingbird Bread with Browned Butter Cream Cheese Glaze

This bread is very moist and full of fruit. The glaze is out of this world!! I’m really not sure if it’s a quick bread or cake. Does it matter? It’s not as sweet as most cakes, it is sturdier and it is baked in a loaf pan, so I’ll go with quick bread. The other day, I had 4 very ripe bananas on the counter, the recipe just needed 2 bananas for a loaf, so I doubled the whole recipe and made two loaves. Glad I did, friends were over and one loaf disappeared!

Beef Stroganoff (Russian Style)

When it’s cold and dreary outside I seem to think of beef, and this Russian style Beef Stroganoff is a recipe that I have loved for a long time. It has more than enough  creamy sauce to cover the noodles and the flavor is right on! I always hope there is enough left over for my lunch the next day. The recipe is easy to double and quick to make.

Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

Over the years I have tried numerous bread pudding recipes, I’m a huge bread pudding fan. I just love the stuff! It is a very comforting dessert…all gooey, creamy, sweet with bread and eggs. I remember the very first time I tasted it, it was at a restaurant while traveling in the South. I know it sounds corny but it really was, love at first bite! I started trying bread pudding recipes to duplicate that first one.

Sweet and Sour Sauce with Pineapple

This Sweet and Sour Sauce with Pineapple is perfect. It has the right balance of sweet to sour plus the pineapple and red pepper give it a lot of flavor. I’m not a fan of the gooey, syrupy, sweet  commercial sauces they try to call sweet and sour.

Shrimp Egg Rolls

There are certain foods that I enjoy so much, once I think about making them, I just have to do it. Shrimp egg rolls fall into that category for me. I have tried to satisfy that craving at every Chinese restaurant I’ve eaten at, but I have not found any really good ones in a long time. The sauce also makes a big difference, I love a good sweet and sour sauce. That’s also hard to find. These egg rolls are so good and I can make them any time I want! So why worry about finding good ones? These are easy and I can satisfy an egg roll craving any time I want.

Cherry Turnovers with Almonds

There’s no hunting for the cherries when you make these cherry turnovers. I think a good cherry turnover should be bursting with cherries. So…. I make my own filling. Problem solved!
