Gluten Free Flourless Almond Honey Cake with Berries

Gluten Free  Almond Honey Cake with Berries

No one is going to believe this cake is gluten free!  This Flourless Almond Honey Cake with Berries is divine. When I need to earn a few brownie points with my husband I make a yummy gluten free treat. Let’s just say I may or may not have been a little onery this weekend so I thought a few brownie points were in order. I know you are probably shocked, Leigh Anne, onery?  Well, it happens now and then. Jim has been eating gluten free for over a year now and [Continue Reading…]

Lemon Tart

Lemon Tart

This lovely lemon tart is the perfect addition to any  meal. Lemon season is in full swing at our house and with Easter just a few days away I’ve been trying out a couple of new lemon dessert ideas for Easter Brunch.  Now, Easter is not Easter at our house without Lemon Angel Pie.  It is required and has been for the last 30 years.  But I’m thinking a second lemon dessert may be needed this year and today’s Lemon Tart is it! Now you  may think two lemon desserts [Continue Reading…]

Lime Sherbet Freeze

Lime Sherbet Freeze

Lime Sherbet Freeze is such a fun thing to make for St. Patrick’s Day.  It is a nice alternative to all the green mint treats out there right now! We are big ice cream fans at our house, always have been.  When I was young one of my favorite treats to get at the local drive, The Spot was a “freeze.”  I loved pulling up at the drive-in, having the server come out of her little booth and hook that tray onto our car window.  They made their own root beer [Continue Reading…]

Swedish Cream

Swedish cream with Raspberry Sauce

Today’s recipe is the perfect treat for your non chocolate lovers for Valentine’s Day or just about perfect for any day. I love chocolate as much as the next person but there are actually times when I will pick a non chocolate dessert over a chocolate one.  Can you believe it!?  If I do, there is usually some kind of fruit involved.  Chocolate seems to be the choice of the season with Valentine’s Day fast approaching but today I’d like to share with you a pretty and delicious dessert idea for [Continue Reading…]

Plum Cake

Plum Cake

A few weeks ago we were invited to  potluck birthday celebration for a dear friend.  This celebration was extra special because this friend has been fighting cancer and is winning! I know there are people who don’t care for potlucks but I’m not one of them.  I love a good potluck and I knew given the people that were invited to this party it would be a good one.  Some of my favorite cooks would be there. I took some homemade crescent rolls and some of those yummy garlic ginger green [Continue Reading…]

No Bake Banana Split Dessert

Banana Split Dessert

Today’s recipes is another one of those oldies but goodies.  I have had it in my recipe file for over 30 years and it originally belonged to my mother.  It is on a nice little type written 3 x 5 index card in my collection of recipes.  I remember spending hours on my typewriter typing out all my recipes!  Now all I have to do is log onto my blog. I served today’s recipe at a farewell dinner party for a sister missionary in our ward this past week.  Her [Continue Reading…]

Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry SOrbet

It’s been a sweet treat week here on the blog. Strawberry season is still going strong around here so I’m taking advantage.  Usually one of the first things I make with the fresh Oregon strawberries is strawberry ice cream.  It is so yummy.  But this year my husband is on a diary free diet and ice cream is not dairy free.  But sorbet is!  So instead of fresh strawberry ice cream I made strawberry sorbet. I can’t tell you how delicious this is.  My husband thought he had died and [Continue Reading…]

Brown Sugar Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry shortcake

When I asked on Facebook what I should make with all my strawberries the number one vote was for Strawberry Shortcake.  I think if you polled any group of people their favorite strawberry dessert would be hands down strawberry shortcake. I have eaten lots of strawberry shortcake in my day and the problem with it is you take a risk of getting a dried out shortcake.  A good shortcake can make or break a strawberry shortcake, no matter  how amazing the strawberries are.  If there is a dried out old [Continue Reading…]
