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?
When I saw Jennifer Shae of Trophy Cupcakes use this Swiss Meringue on her S’more Cupcakes on Martha Stewart, I wasn’t taking any issue that she called this “Marshmallow Frosting.” I was more interested that it toasted so beautifully and tastes soooo good!
Rhubarb Pistachio Cake. came about because there’s a “perfect storm” of ingredients! A neighbor volunteered some rhubarb, I had just picked up a new carton of yogurt and I knew I had a stash of pistachios in the freezer. Then I happened to open up the April Martha Stewart magazine.
I just love a simple, rolled truffle, don’t you? Well, I won’t turn down one with a gorgeous chocolate coating, but for making, you can’t beat these, tossed in confectioner’s sugar or cocoa, and besides, we all know the center is the best part anyway, right?
I try to make this cake. Buche de Noel Yule Log, from Martha Stewart’s 2003 Christmas Book, every Christmas Season. She calls it Birch de Noel, and I always thought it was fitting because up “Nord” here in Minnesota, all the logs are blanketed in snow through the winter season. You betcha! I guess it appeals to the realist in me, though this dessert is pure fantasy!
