Lemon Buttermilk Popsicles

Before we get to popsicles and the mere necessity of investing in a popsicle mold and the green light to slurp your way through sweet sweet goodness and discussing the perfect consistency of frozen treats…I need to announce that I am now an aunt to one more lovely lovely little girl.  Seriously, she is beautiful.Continue reading “Lemon Buttermilk Popsicles”

Triple Berry Cobbler

I have taken 2 cold showers more today than I had intended when I stumbled out of bed this morning. I am foreseeing a few more before it’s all over. I have made more insurance phone calls and left more voice mails with water restoration companies than I see fit. I have purged more Oprah andContinue reading “Triple Berry Cobbler”

Strawberry Jam Lemon Bars

I can not leave well enough alone. Never have. Well enough…doesn’t mean it’s OK.  It means that there might be room for improvement.  Even though attempts at this have real repercussions and can ultimately ruin and unravel ‘well enough’, but what if… There are always two ways the road can diverge from ‘well enough’.  ItContinue reading “Strawberry Jam Lemon Bars”

Buttermilk Lemon Chess Pie

Did you spring break?  Break for spring.  I am still waiting on spring…but that is another story…I won’t talk about the snow that greeted me this morning that had me silently weeping and cursing mother nature and wishing I lived in where snow was not in the vernacular after the calendar moved beyond winter.  (sideContinue reading “Buttermilk Lemon Chess Pie”

Blood Orange Bars with Browned Butter Crust

The West Side Market…which for the first few years of residing in Cleveland, I referred to it as the West End Market, but with Cleveland not having a West and East end, but West and East sides…it confused most folks,  in that midwestern way, where those with whom you are chatting know exactly what/where youContinue reading “Blood Orange Bars with Browned Butter Crust”

Brown Butter Peach Raspberry Bars

It is September  (oy!) and I have already pumped out a few pumpkin desserts.  It doesn’t seem right.  A pumpkin freakazoid, I am not.  I am not one of those chicks just waiting for Starbucks to roll out their limited edition Pumpkin Spice latte (it is like Disney releasing Beauty and the Beast or TheContinue reading “Brown Butter Peach Raspberry Bars”

Yogurt Cake w/ Peach Blueberry Compote

Yo!  I have a cake for you today. And if you bake this cake…you will have cake tomorrow. It goes along the lines of the proverb … give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day, but teach a man to fish…     Proverbs don’t just pop into everyone’s brains randomly?Continue reading “Yogurt Cake w/ Peach Blueberry Compote”

Cherry Chocolate Banana Bread

I don’t like banana things.  I like bananas…I take that back, I love actual, real life, peel and eat, yellow … and let’s be clear on the yellow…darkish yellow, not the new yellow that leads one to believe it was green just moments ago… they must be, ya know, perfectly ripe bananas.  I just detestContinue reading “Cherry Chocolate Banana Bread”

Strawberry Lime Bundt Cake

My hands are tan.  The tops at least…the palms are pinkish/orange (my carrot intake might be a touch out of control…again).  They don’t look like my hands.  Honestly, I think they look dirty…I am just so darn used to them being pale.  My mind is weird.  I can see the million tiny crevices and lines much easierContinue reading “Strawberry Lime Bundt Cake”
