Cherry Nut Bundt Cake

This is a fun cake to make for special occasions and it looks so pretty on your plate. It’s so good.  It’s been a favorite cake of mine for a long time. I particularly like the explosion of flavor when I bite into a chunk of maraschino cherry.

Banana Cream Puffs

 Cream Puffs have always been a super special treat for me. That started when I was a little girl and my Mom and I would go shopping and stop at a bakery/lunch counter type of store. Recently, I was visiting her and I asked her if she remembered our special shopping treat and at 94 years old, she immediately said yes.  She has a very selective memory these days and I was pleasantly surprised she remembered. She just lives 5 miles from me in a nursing home, I came home and made these Banana Cream Puffs.  Continue reading

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.

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!

Date and Walnut Loaf with Caramel Sauce

This Date and Walnut Loaf is totally delicious! It is moist and full of dates. I added a caramel sauce over it, as it really is more of a dessert that it is a quick bread. It is not overly sweet without the caramel sauce and since I am really into sweets, it just seemed perfect! And it is!
If you like things not so sweet, this is also terrific with some cream cheese smeared on top of a slice. That’s what my friend Ann does and it’s her recipe.
