I made this cookbook due to the overwhelming, awesome looking desserts I've come across since I joined Zaar. I now have to re-vamp my saved-to-try recipes into a separate cookbook. Cover is my Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites... in my "Just Desserts" cookbook.
Doesn't dieting make you crave the oddest things? I've never been a Twinkie fan but I adore these _fake_ ones. Of course the filling isn't that slick lard stuff that has a 50 year shelf life but at only 2 Weight Watchers points per serving, I'll chew and dream.
This is one of my family's favorite coffeecakes. The original recipe called for 3/4 cup evaporate milk with 1 Tbls. lemon juice in it and it was very good. However, using the sour cream and milk makes it even better. It is so moist and tender and delicious you will have to eat seconds! Works well for company or to give as a gift too. I always prepare it on Saturday night for Sunday morning. Just cover lightly with a towel.
I had a almost full bottle of Limoncello in my refrigerator and I wanted to use some of it up. I love cheesecake so while searching the web I found this one on recipegoldmine.com. Very good! Lemoncello is an italian lemon liqueur.
This has remained a long time favorite, I have even made this in the winter months and served it to guests many times, lemon flavor pudding mix is also very good to use in place of the chocolate --- you can make this well in advance, it can also be served as a frozen dessert just remove from freezer about 6 minutes before slicing this is just as delicious frozen! if you are serving this at a kid's birthday party place mini Oreo cookies into the topping of Cool Whip facing sideways --- I most always double the chocolate pudding mixture, you may also double the cream cheese mixture if desired --- this is very good!
A friend of mine went to Las Vegas and came back talking about a Kahlua cake smothered in chocolate sauce that she enjoyed while there on vacation. It sounded so good that I just HAD to come up with one of my own. This is the results of my efforts. It was pretty good still warm, but I like it better after chilling all night. Almost like a pudding/cake consistancy. Very dense, rich and chocolatly. The glaze chilled to a soft shell that I enjoy very much. The leftover glaze can be re-heated to pour warm over the servings on the plate which contrasts very nicely with the cool cake.
My DH always gets a container of these every year during the holidays from one of the ladies in the office at one of his clients. I asked him to get the recipe from her and now I have it. OH! I love them! Thought I would share the recipe too.
