Strawberry Orange Cream Puffs

I love it when the trees get green, and the bluebonnets begin to bloom! It means spring has arrived, and with it all kinds of light and fruity desserts that I so adore. Keep your pumpkin spice and gingerbread, I will take fresh berries and sharp citrus any day! Right before I went in for shoulder surgery in February to repair a torn rotator cuff I jotted down a list of recipe ideas to make when I was better. I had a huge brainstorm...

Dark Chocolate Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a Southern staple. In the South – and Texas especially – food is love, and nothing says, “I love you!” better than banana pudding. Is your neighborhood having its annual pot luck supper? Count on at least one banana pudding. Did a friend or relative lose a loved one? Taking over a banana pudding is a lovely gesture to help comfort the bereaved. Is it your birthday? Banana pudding is ALWAYS...

If you want to see the other...

Lucky Leaf Blueberry Peach Trifle

I recently attended Mixed on a scholarship* provided by Lucky Leaf. Mixed was an intimate conference, only about 100 bloggers, and it was different and a lot of fun. There were some hands-on cookie and cake decorating demos, sessions on food styling that did not pull ANY punches, parties every night, and movies and snacks at midnight. As I said, different and lots of fun! I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship to attend courtesy...

Pumpkin Beer Butterscotch Mousse Puffs

I am not usually happy to see summer go. Summer fruits and berries are leaving the markets. Just thinking about the end of peach makes me terribly sad! In Texas this time of year also means you have to keep an eye on the weather. One day it will be warm and sticky, the next it is cool and rainy, and that evening there can be dangerous thunderstorms. Good times! As the days start to get shorter, and the school buses return to tangle my...

No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Cups

Sometimes I just can’t bear to turn on the oven. During the warmer months this is out of a desire to keep our humble little home cool. The kitchen, where I tend to spend most of my time believe it or not, is filled with lovely windows that give me a full view of our back yard from every direction. I also get a lovely view of the green belt behind our house that is filled with some beautiful trees. I do not have any drapes or...
