  1. Even though I have not tried this yet I plan on making it for hubby's b-day coming up next month. You know a recipe will be good when your mouth starts to water while reading it. Then again, I am expecting and my mouth tends to water at a lot of things. I want to go home and make this NOW. :)
  2. This dessert was very lite yet satisfying. It also takes under 5 minutes!


Hmm... let's see.. Cooking is my passion... I'm retired now and able to cook and bake every day. I think the most helpful cookbook that I own would have to be The New Doubleday Cookbook. I just love kitchen gadgets and have many of them. Besides cooking I love to sing and belong to the Sweet Adeline's International. I get very annoyed at people who are LATE! I think it's just as easy to be late as it is to be on time. Well.. thanks to all of you at Zaar for all of your terrific recipes and ideas that bring my friends and family much joy and happiness. They get to try all of my new recipes.
