Home-made Cherry Pie Filling

Home-made small batch Cherry Pie Filling. Prepare to be amazed!

There was a time, when I was a youngster, I didn’t like cherry pie. Or pretty much cherry anything. I couldn’t really “get it” because I love cherries. If you’ve noticed the same thing, this is going to rock your world.

Home-Made Hot Fudge Sauce

The BEST Hot Fudge Sauce & it's EASY

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!

Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake with Vanilla Sauce

Old Fashioned Rhubarb Coffee Cake with Vanilla Sauce. Not a "looker" of a recipe but you'll forgive that at the first taste!

Every spring I hafta make this coffee cake and this is not just any old coffee cake, it’s my Rhubarb Coffee Cake with a Vanilla Streusel and to top it all off, a Vanilla Sauce. Did you get all that? It’s a one, two, three punch of sweet tart goodness.

Sour Cherry Compote

Sour Cherry Compote: Rides the line between sweet & savory and has so many uses!

One of my summer/fall favorites is this marvelous Sour Cherry Compote. It’s a little sweet, a little tart and goes so well with so many things. I often make up a batch and can or freeze so I have it to pull out in the winter, too.

Grilled Plums with Mascarpone & Balsamic Gastrique

This is just a fun little whisper of a dessert, barely sweet and absolutely scrumptious. I don’t know why it took my so long to grill plums and serve them for dessert. I just didn’t “get” it. Now I do. Brushed lightly with honey and seared over high heat for just a minute totally intensified the flavor.

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding: Double that sauce and just try not to drink it, lol

Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel – while the name evokes a gourmet treat (and it is) it always makes me want to snort just a little. Make caramel sauce and add a little salt. I know it’s fantastic, but people seem to just go nuts over the name! Anyway, salted or not, you just can’t beat a rich, luscious home-made caramel sauce.
