Blueberry Lime Fromage Blanc Tart

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would […]

Peanut Butter Cream Pie with Chocolate Whipped Cream

I am a sucker for peanut butter desserts. I love peanut butter cookies, peanut butter fudge, hot peanut butter poured over ice cream, spicy peanut sauce … you name a culinary application for peanut butter and I most likely love it.  So, it should come as no great surprise that, while I found myself whisking  […]

Black and White Cream Pie

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]

Bruléed Apple Tart

Inspiration comes from a lot of places.  Sometimes it is a basket of fresh fruit, sometimes it is a picture, and sometimes it is a television show.   Last week, while watching Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word, inspiration struck in the form of an apple tart.  Gordon baked sliced apples on a round of puff […]

Cherry Cheese Tart

I love fresh cherries, and at this time of year they are plump and sweet.   When the cherries hit the produce section I grab them up for cherry pies, cherry sauce, and for eating ice cold on a hot day.  However, I must warn you, cooking with fresh cherries in season will spoil you […]

Strawberry Jam Tarts

 Last October I had the opportunity to go to England and Ireland and the trip changed my life. Overall, I must admit, the food was pretty bleak.  I was so busy preparing for my friend’s wedding (in which I was not only the Matron of Honor but I was the cake designer) that I ate a lot […]

Bananas Foster Cream Pie

Sometimes, when the stars align and the wind blows just right, I come up with something so good it shocks everyone, including me. This pie is one such idea.  You see I had a party to attend for my mom.  She said, “Oh, just make whatever you like.  I’m sure it will be fine.”  Saying […]

Onion, Apple, and Bacon Tart

I love savoury tarts. They are so nice for lunches, light dinners and are perfect for a brunch.  What I love about a savoury tart, aside from how nice they are to eat, is how you can vary the fillings to suit your taste and what you have on hand. This tart was born out […]

Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tart

A few nights ago my husband and I had the opportunity to have dinner with a very old friend.  We had not seen him in a very long time and during our time apart he had gotten married to a lovely doctor who brought to the marriage her beautiful daughter.  A year and a half ago they […]
