In the Summer I love making popsicles. I enjoy the indulgence of frozen treats and the sensibility of making it myself with delicious and readily available ingredients. Right now all of the fruit available tastes like it is the best it has ever been. The berries have been addicting and  the melon,  luscious and sweet. […]

6/6 DIY Papaya Ice Cream w/Toasted Coconut

Happy day two of All Things Frozen Week. Last year while staying in Cozumel I fell madly in love with papaya. I ate it everyday, multiple times a day.  I ate the equivalent of what the trip cost in papaya. Some people take the toiletries or use more towels than they need…I ate papaya.  I […]

3/11 Dark Chocolate Cashew Tarts

Happy Meatless Monday. As if we need another reason to adore avocados?  They are quite possibly the most amenable fruit available.  They want to be blended, cubed or stuffed, frozen, deep fried or consumed in the raw.   You prefer them savory, sure thing.  Need a  dessert…no problem. I created a mousse with avocado, dates, cocoa […]

1/21 Winter Fruit Bake w/ Vanilla Bean Whipped Cashew Cream

Happy Meatless Monday friends. Today it was a high of 18 degrees in my Michigan town. The wind was howling and snow kept falling. Time for a warm dessert. I wanted to warm fruit, both fresh and dried and so I created this winter fruit bake.  To celebrate the fruit I left the bake naked then topped it with a […]

1/11 Gwen’s World Famous Pecan Tart

As someone that loves to bake and  has a passion for pecans, I could not  leave the holy land of pecans without having experienced them first hand. We went to a store called Burgers Farm Fresh Fruit Market in Marietta. It […]
