Strawberry Eton Mess

May 10, 2021

Eton mess is a traditional British dessert that’s wonderfully lazy. Anyone can make it and everyone loves it. You don’t have to be good at making pastries or baking. Your meringues can be overcooked or misshapen, but not matter because whipped cream and fresh seasonal strawberries will make up for everything.

Blackberry Coconut Bars

April 27, 2021

These delicious dessert bars are topped with sweet and tangy blackberries and coconut.

Dairy Free Berry Crumble

April 19, 2021

This Berry Crumble is made with fresh or frozen berries and topped with a dairy free brown sugar crumble. An excellent dessert that everyone can enjoy.

Meyer Lemon Bars

April 12, 2021

The filling for these bars is a thick, smooth, buttery homemade Meyer lemon curd. It can also be spread on flaky scones or layered in cakes. Meyer lemons, which are prized for their sweet flavor and flowery fragrance, are used in this recipe, but common lemons can be substituted. Although the lemon filling remains soft even when cold, it holds its shape when the bars are cut.

One Bowl Brownies

February 12, 2021

This has to be one of the easiest brownie recipes ever. If you’re needing a quick, no-mess, Valentine’s Day dessert you may want to whip up a batch of these brownies.

Apricot Jam Bread Pudding

February 3, 2021

I like to make this super easy and comforting version of a traditional English bread and butter pudding. If you don’t have apricot jam just use any jam that you may have on hand.

Valentine Rice Crispy Treats

January 22, 2021

Seriously, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like Rice Crispy Treats. Make sure to use fresh marshmallows or one 7-ounce jar of marshmallow cream can be used instead. I don’t recommend using diet or reduced calorie or margarine. To freeze place layers separated by wax paper in an airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

November 24, 2020

I like to make Pumpkin Cheesecake because it is a nice alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie.

Cranberry Crisp

November 23, 2020

I often purchase a large number of cranberries when I’m at my house on Martha’s Vineyard. This year is no exception. I make cranberry sauce, of course, but like to use these Massachusetts cranberries in other ways as well. This crisp is delicious and changes holiday desserts up a bit. A small scoop of vanilla ice cream makes a great accompaniment.

Coconut Pineapple Bars

November 4, 2020

I’m a coconut and pineapple fan and like making these delicious bars, which is a nice addition to pumpkin desserts.
