Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

September 28, 2012

As I mentioned in Monday’s post on Apple-Date Oatmeal Bars, Apples are a big deal for me in the Fall. They just bring back so many great memories of apple picking and apple pie, that they completely epitomize the season in my mind. That’s is until you get closer to mid-October in which case pumpkin season is […]

Apple-Date Oatmeal Bars

September 24, 2012

Dates? Yes– dates. Dried fruit is HUGE here in Europe. And not just raisins either- dates, prunes, cherries, and apricots. A German apple strudel isn’t truly authentic if there aren’t raisins in it. I will admit though, the majority of my baking is purely American. Outside the raisins, I don’t bake much with dried fruit. […]

Homemade Applesauce

September 14, 2012

My Grandma was one to never waste. I remember she used to have apples sitting out on her counter that were WAY past prime in what would probably be most peoples opinions. They would have bruises and other non-appetizing spots. But since she grew up in WWII England, there was always something she could salvage. […]

Blueberry Crumb Muffins

September 3, 2012

Blueberry muffins have always been my first love. Even when I went through a brief period in time when I refused to eat any kind of sweet/baked good, I made an exception to the rule for blueberry muffins. I somehow convinced myself that they weren’t “unhealthy”… mhmmmmmm, sure! I would pick up a jumbo sized muffin […]

No Bake Creamy Berry Pie

August 27, 2012

I LOVE no bake desserts in the summer : ) It’s such a reprieve to be able to throw together something sweet without having to turn the oven on! I know it’s the end of August and for most people the weather is actually starting to cool down, but I’m still not at the point […]

Watermelon Agua Frescas

August 7, 2012

Upon making this watermelon drink I discovered something- I don’t like watermelon. And it’s certainly not the drinks fault. I think somewhere deep down inside I’ve always been less than enthused about watermelon at picnics, BBQ’s, etc. Now I know why. I just don’t particularly like the fruit. However, despite how I feel about watermelon […]

Lemon Meringue Pie

July 30, 2012

I know that I’ve mentioned plenty of times before on here that citrus really isn’t my thing. I’m a mocha kind of girl. Well, I know that there are plenty of people that looked forward to the summertime and its’ “lighter” fruitier desserts. Lemon Meringue Pie happens to be one of those classic desserts that […]

Frozen White Chocolate Strawberry Dessert

July 23, 2012

Desserts like this really interest me. I mean seriously- how many delicious ways can you prepare cream cheese, cool whip, and pudding?!? There are SO many variations of desserts using those ingredients, it’s incredible. A month or so ago I made one such recipe- Pudding Lust Cake. They were phenomenal- simple, cool, and creamy. A […]
