The base for this recipe came from my mom's 1965 copy of Better Homes and Gardens "Just Desserts" cookbook. There several versions of shortcake listed but this one is delicious and the addition of orange zest to the cake and orange juice to the strawberries is great boost to the flavors of summer!
We recently had the pleasure of going to a farm and picking fresh ripe peaches, yum! Here's a recipe I found to help me use all these delicious peaches. From EatingWell Magazine:
"An exquisite spice blend of cardamom and curry dresses up pork chops and spotlights fresh peaches in this easy family supper. Round out the meal with brown rice and sugar snap peas."
Wonderful recipe from Anne Burrell' Secrets of a Restaturant Chef. Be sure to poke lots of holes in the bread once you stretch onto the sheet pan and that you use plenty of good olive oil. It's the secret to crispy, craggy, delicious focaccia!
From Tyler Florence, Ultimate Thanksgiving. I like the idea of using banana and honey instead of sugar for the sweetness. I can't stand those yucky, overly sweet sweet potatoes that we here in the south usually serve. This is a better option for those of us who enjoy sweet potatoes without all the sugar. I did retain the pecan topping but you can probably cut it back to 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Enjoy!
This is one of Emeril's. I haven't tried it yet but we intend to fire up the grill this Memorial Day and this is on the menu for sure! I wanted to put it out here so I didn't lose it and maybe some other folks will want to try it out. Let me know if you like it!
A creamy delicious key lime cheese pie. It takes a little work to get all those limes juiced and zested but it is well worth it! I found this in the Cook's Country newsletter. I wondered if this pie might work well with other citrus fruits. The basic pie is pretty generic and all the flavor comes from the juice and zest. You might give it a try using lemon or maybe orange!
