This recipe for a Chocolate Strawberry Rum Cake is something I came up with because I wanted to make something similar to the Cherry Chocolate Rum Cake I used to make at the restaurant. Two days before our Christmas Eve celebration at my parents’ house, my sister pointed out that […]

Cranberry Pecan Sandie Recipe

Cranberry Pecan Sandies

I created this recipe for Cranberry Pecan Sandies for my father. He loves the Pecan Sandies that you buy from the grocery store, but I wanted to do something special for him. I started researching recipes for Pecan Sandies and Russian Teacakes (which have a very similar texture). It took […]

Creme Brulee Recipe

Creme Brulee

When I owned my restaurant, one of the desserts I often made was the Creme Brulee.  It was, by far, my husband’s favorite.  I can remember on Saturday nights while I was in the kitchen cooking, he and our kids would be sharing a piece of my “Death by Chocolate” […]
