Finally, it’s here. The Cafe Latte’s Tres Leches Cake. If you follow me (please do!) you might remember a blogging fail when I dropped the Cafe Latte’s Tres Leches Cake in February, The Cake of Broken Dreams.
I remember baking Gingersnap Cookies with my Mom. Kneeling on a chair at the kitchen table, it was always the job of us kids to take a glass (and the one we used had a little design on the bottom – it might have been one of Mom’s crystal glasses) dip it in sugar and gently press the cookies before baking.
If there’s ever a cookie that screams “Christmas” it has to be a White Chocolate & Dried Cranberry Cookie. And so I dutifully waited until after Thanksgiving to post these lovelies.
You know what’s kinda cool? When you’re putting on a fancy dinner or a feast like Thanksgiving and you can knock off a showstopper of a dessert ahead of time. Even better? When it’s an easy, no-cook, and very fun dessert like these Pumpkin Parfaits.

Well, some of you may have noticed I’ve been a little awol over the past few weeks. After my fave octogenarians, the folks, moved into a gorgeous assisted living center, their house was settled and I came back to the Twin Cities – along with Homer & Chance, of course.
I’ve been making little summer cakes all summer long, and one I especially wanted to make was the famous Original Plum Torte by Marion Burros of the New York Times. The times published this recipe every year from 1983 to 1989 and pledges every year the recipe will be available to all.
It must be a really good year for blueberries and I swear I’ve made a ton of blueberry desserts – some with success, some not. This Blueberry Nectarine Buckle was perfect (even if the pics aren’t the greatest) and just loaded with fruit.
These Mini Strawberry Swirl Cheesecakes are my new love. Aren’t they just the darlingest little babies? And yes, they’re adorable – and just as delicious as they look. But beyond that? They’re perfectly portable and easy to share. Unless you want to hoard them all to yourself?
