Ever since I picked up my little cake pan tray, below, I’ve been dying to make something in them. When I came across a pic of Panera’s Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Cakes, the anticipation became an obsession. They were so darling!
Of all the ice-cream toppings, I have to confess I like Hot Fudge the best. Nothing else really compares. Caramel is good, Salted Caramel is fantastic and Butterscotch, what can I say? I wouldn’t turn any of them down but Hot Fudge Sauce? That I would seek out!
Many of my favorite desserts are made with fruit (the rest are usually chocolate!) Here you’ll find fruit based desserts, desserts with fresh fruit or dried or those that have a fruit sauce. Enjoy!

If you’ve never had a really good German Potato Salad, you might think you might think you don’t care for it. I know this to be true because I’ve tried, from time to time, grocery store deli German Potato Salad. It doesn’t compare to what you can make at home.
I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”
Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese (typically cream cheese or ricotta), eggs, and sugar; if there is a bottom layer it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies or graham crackers. It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake may be flavored or topped with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, cookies, fruit sauce, or chocolate syrup. Wikipedia
