Cannoli Cream-Filled Strawberries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

This recipe is from Full Belly Sisters. She is the queen of creative Cannoli recipes! (Not to mention her Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich is seriously amazing.)

Fresh & Simple Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Fresh & Simple Homemade Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

One of my favorite winter treats is Peppermint Stick Ice Cream … I used to buy it around Christmas-time every year because that is the only time you would see it in the stores. If you happen to have any candy canes left after the holidays, it is really quite simple to make. It takes […]


Kumquat Creamsicle Smoothie

Kumquat Creamsicle Smoothie

I’m still making my way through my kumquats from the large box my aunt sent me … some of them are starting to go bad so I need to finish up the kumquats. I pureed a bunch of them to use in recipes last weekend, so I decided to try a little bit of that […]

Inspired by Lemony Thyme and my wonderful wonderful parents Fish, shrimp and corn chowder, with potatoes, onion, celery, carrot, and green chile, laced with the salty goodness of bacon and a bit of cream: it’s a bowl of pure comfort.

Dad’s Fresh & Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

Dad's Fresh & Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

Whoever coined the term “plain vanilla” really just didn’t know what they were talking about. As The Pastry Chef Online said when we were having our ‘V is for Vanilla’ day, “Vanilla is complex and sophisticated and wonderful.” It is! Vanilla is one of those subtle but wonderful flavors that just enhances everything it touches. When […]

I was at the grocery store last week and they had these HUGE locally grown cantaloupe … my daughter had been staying with her grandparents for the week and would be coming home soon and she loves cantaloupe, so I bought one, brought it home, cut it up, and had this gargantuan tub of pretty […]


Basil Green Tea Gelato

Basil Green Tea Gelato

Do you love basil? I love basil. My mother has suggested maybe my dad and I love basil a little too much. How could that possibly be? I have seen people put basil in sorbets and syrups and even cookies, so for #icecreamlove this month, I had this brilliant flash of inspiration: I wanted to […]


Very Berry Italian Cream Sodas

Very Berry Italian Cream Sodas

One day my daughter and I were shopping downtown and we got thirsty, so we stopped at this cute little coffee shop where they make all sorts of wonderful things and I suggested she try an Italian Cream Soda. She wasn’t really sure she wanted to, but I talked her into trying one … especially […]


White Wine Mushroom Cream Sauce on Angel Hair

White Wine Mushroom Cream Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta with Parmesan and Fresh Basil

with fresh parmesan and basil leaves (and shhhh! … it’s kind of even  … almost … healthy) There is a bit of a funny story surrounding this dish … we like to joke around a lot in my office. Normally this doesn’t extend to our clients, but today something came across the email trail and our […]


Mocha Cream Liqueur Slimmed Down

Sorta Skinny Mocha Cream Liqueur (Homemade Bailey's)

A creamy dreamy, rich and sweet coffee cream liqueur without all the fat of the heavy cream that’s in Bailey’s and those “store bought” cream liqueurs. Not quite Bailey’s, but oh so good just the same. A very nice nightcap or little something to slip into your coffee. Did you make the homemade coffee liqueur […]
