FRUIT DELIGHT

“Desire is the enemy of contentment.” The other day I had a craving for fruit.  Lucky for me I had a plethora of fruit, fresh and frozen, at hand.  I decided to start with an apple cut in kind of chunk slices, which is now a new culinary term. I put the apple chunk slices…

BANANA SNACK

“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”  Walt Disney One of my new favorite documentaries, which also led to a new favorite recipe, is “Un-supersize Me”.  It’s about a young woman who lost 200 pounds in one year.  Yes, she had a coach and medical support and a can-do attitude that lit up a…

COCOA PEANUT BUTTER BITES

“You can’t please everyone all the time.  You aren’t peanut butter.” I love this recipe because, as is, it’s delicious.  But beyond that, it’s the base just waiting for additional ingredients.  And you don’t have to bake this beauty.  It’s simply a two minute boil for the first four ingredients, adding other exciting ingredients, and…

PUMPKIN CAKE

“Get your fat pants ready!” Happy Thanksgiving, for those of you celebrating the start of the eating season.  I thought today’s recipe should have something to do with the season, and at the same time explore a different take on holiday food. This came about because we were, once again, going to our youngest son’s…

CHOCOLATE MAYO CAKE

“Money talks.  Chocolate sings.” I’m having the women friends over for lunch.  We are known to keep lunch simple but to overindulge in dessert.  Therefore, I’m swerving toward dessert recipes that contain chocolate.  I’m also testing my gluten free flour mix to see how well it performs in regularish recipes.  But on to the ladies.…
