This roasted pear recipe is a delicious dessert that’s healthy and easy to make. Bosc pears work well here because the flesh is firmer than in other varieties, and they seem to hold up better when baking. I like to serve them with plain Greek yogurt and a little bit of the orange lime syrup drizzled […]
I came up with the idea for this recipe because I wanted something that was a little different from the traditional gingerbread cake, but without a lot of work involved. I found that espresso powder and cocoa added a dark, intense flavor to this simple yet delicious dessert.
We came up with the idea for this sorbet because we wanted something that would seem like an indulgent treat, but still stay within the realm of being healthy. We used frozen, dark sweet cherries as our base along with fresh blackberries to create a delicious dessert that’s refreshing and full of flavor. We discovered […]
Here’s a modern twist on an old-fashioned cobbler. Pears and pomegranates complement each other perfectly to make this a delicious and striking dessert. The unique flavor comes from pomegranate molasses, which is deeply tangy and tart, and it turns this familiar classic into something new. This pear cobbler is also very good served warm with […]
We blend tropical mangos with peaches to make a creamy sorbet with just a touch of lime. This is easy to make using fresh peaches and mangos, or if they’re out of season, frozen peaches and mangos work well too.
We blend sweet strawberries and blueberries into a smooth puree for this refreshing and delicious sorbet. It’s hard to believe a dessert that tastes so good can be loaded with so many vitamins and antioxidants. It’s easy to make, and when berries aren’t in season, frozen berries work just as well. When we make sorbet, we […]
This raspberry ice cream soda is the ultimate summer treat. It’s a perfect way to use fresh raspberries, and if they’re not in season, try this soda using frozen ones instead. I’ve noticed quite a variation in the tartness of the berries when I’ve made this, so adjust the sugar to your taste.
This moist pumpkin cake makes a great casual dessert when it’s baked in a 9-x-13-inch pan. It’s perfect for family get-togethers, potlucks, or just about any time you want something that tastes really good, but without a lot of work. For this two-layer version, I used a naked cake finish. Not only does this method […]
Several years ago, my husband brought a piece of carrot cake to work as part of his lunch. Called away from his desk, he naively left his slice of cake unprotected. Waiting for him when he returned was an empty plate and a one-word note that read: “Excellent.” I found this recipe for carrot cake […]

Contrary to the name, it doesn’t contain any eggs at all, but instead resembles whipped eggs in its finished form. Having worked for a short time at a soda fountain, I realized that this could be the […]
