This is so easy and impressive. It's a great dessert for kids to help with and easy to dress-up for grown-up taste buds. You could substitute apricot jam, strawberry jam, or add some chopped semi-sweet chocolate chips or a couple tbs of Nutella for a decadent raspberry chocolate pastry. There are tons of possibilities! :-)*edited to include reviewers suggestions*
The name says it all! It has a delicious sugar crackle topping that forms by pouring the boiling water over the top before baking. This is my favorite cobbler recipe. Easy, impressive, and versatile. Can use any combination of berries, frozen or fresh.
Our favorite use for over-ripe bananas, a nice alternative to banana bread. It has a light lemon glaze that really compliments the spice and banana filled bars. *Note* Recipe edited per Laurie's Review suggestions for the glaze.
I wanted a rice recipe that was easy and relatively quick to make brown rice more tasty. This is what I came up with. :-) I've used long-grain brown rice and brown basmati rice for this, but you could also use white rice. Great for any meal you would use rice in.
This is delicious layered cake that is pretty enough for company but easy enough to make you want to make it again. It has a creamy layer sandwiched between moist cake and fresh strawberries and glaze. Can be made up to a day ahead. Work time includes refrigeration time.
This is my favorite chicken pasta salad! The tangy dried cranberries and crunchy cashews combine wonderfully in a creamy pasta salad that is substantial enough for a main dish or perfect as a summer side dish. It is pretty enough for company and can be made up to a day a head. We served this as a side dish at our summer wedding reception five years ago and I still get compliments.
A yummy versatile breakfast, snack, or dessert dish that's healthy too! The plain non-fat yogurt makes it a little tangy, which I love, but you could always use vanilla yogurt.It's very quick, easy, and kid friendly. My three year old loves it.
These are my favorite orange cookies. They are different from most recipes because they call for orange juice concentrate rather than just orange juice. They pack alot of pure orange flavor and are frosted with an orange buttercream frosting. Sunshine in a cookie!
These are rich and moist cake-like cookies. Frost with your favorite buttercream frosting. This is a large recipe that can be easily reduced. Batter must be chilled overnight. Cook time does not include chill time.
I love garlic mashed potatoes, but usually the flavor is a little sharp and bitter, so I came up with this. Roasting the garlic first gives these potatoes all the wonderful garlic flavor, without the sharp or bitter bite. Almost sweet, smoky, and smooth.
