This is a combination of a recipe Mom Meyer gave me and one I found on Zaar. The fudge layer adds some interest. I reduced the sugar and increased the peanut butter from other recipes. This is a good summer treat, and can be frozen for a while. Thaw at least a few hours before eating in the fridge or an hour before on the counter.
Left over rice never had it so good ! This creamy pudding is the perfect way to use up the extra white rice from Chinese take-out or from tonight's supper, and delicious enough to make you cook some up fresh, just so you can have this for dessert! Tastes great warm or cold--Enjoy!!
A small spin on a classic Italian dessert. This excellent summer dessert takes no time at all to prepare and is always a cool and refreshing pleaser. Be sure to use a good balsamic vinegar - remember your recipes are only as good as your ingredients!
This is definitely not your ordinary cake! My sister makes this on special occasions and holidays. Recently had a dessert party for an upcoming bride and with a table full of desserts this one was the most raved about cake. Don't let the name fool you, it's delicious served with the compote and fresh berries. Beautiful presentation. Thanks for sharing Brooke! Everyone has requested this recipe. It's awesome.
This cake was created by Shanna Masters, served at a dinner honoring some of San Francisco's top chefs. It is best when allowed to "mellow" for a day. I serve it sliced, with a light spreading of Lemon Curd, topped with heavy whipped cream (preferably not from a can) and fresh blueberries or raspberries. Be careful not to over-bake this cake, or it will be dry. Bottled lemon juice may be used in place of fresh lemon juice.
This was a best selling dessert for Ruggles Grill, in Houston. It's a little different than some peanut butter cheesecakes--very good---with that winning combo, chocolate and peanut butter! Hope you enjoy.
My mother thinks the original recipe for this cake came from Southern Living, however it is not listed on their website. The cake gets a wonderful crispy crust on top that is amazing. We have it every Fourth of July with strawberries and whip cream.
We discovered this dessert on Carnival Cruise lines, but the measurements were in odd sizes. We revised this to work with standard purchase sizes, AND changed from fresh eggs to pasteurized eggs, since the recipe does not fully cook the eggs in the center of the dessert. If you follow the directions exactly, this dessert is as easy as it is delciious.
Note that it can be made ahead and held in the refrigerator until you are ready to finish and serve it, so it's perfect for entertaining.
Layers of cake cushioned with Pumpkin Cream-Cheese Frosting create a lasting impression even before you take the first bite. One taste of this moist cake and creamy icing, and the traditional pumpkin pie may have to make room on the for a new holiday favorite.
Native to South America, quinoa is rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients. This is a lovely variation on the more common rice pudding and is best served warm. The final product is firm and can be sliced. Top with your favorite fruit and this dessert makes for a terrific breakfast. Since I tend to not like my desserts very sweet, I usually make this with 2/3 cup sugar or a combination of sugar and Splenda. (For Core followers, you can make this Core bu skipping the currants and nuts, and replacing the sugar with Splenda. Add the Splenda towards the end to avoid the artificially sweetened taste.)
This is better than any Dairy Queen frozen cake! ---experiment using different flavors of ice cream and toppings, the possibilities are endless, small Oreo cookies and Oreo ice cream works well --- homemade soft cookies will not work for the crust, the cookies must be hard --- prep time includes 5 hour freezing time --- this is *SO* good!
OMG.. These are like heaven in your mouth! Talk about great taste sensations... I made these for one of my cooking and recipe events that I hold monthly, and these were a HUGE hit... A must try for sure! You can use low fat cream cheese to make these lighter if you like. You can also dip the ends with any kind of finely chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, sprinkles, or dip the ends in chocolate or drizzle with chocolate. You might even try adding some cocoa powder to the cream cheese and make it a chocolate filling. The sky is the limit here, just use your imagination!
