S’more Pudding Pie, please

So this was supposed to post on Presidents Day, but I guess it didn’t! Per usual these days, here in southern California anyway, it is February and the temperature is a crisp 80 degrees. That being said, I didn’t want to turn on my oven last week to make dessert! Fortunately, I have a solid, […]

White Trash Bars

What do you do when you’ve offered to bake something for a White Trash Bash, and have no idea what’s considered a “white trash” dessert? You do a Google search, duh.

This idea for a dessert was inspired partially by my anticipated lack of time to make it (it was supposed […]

Simple Syrup

The idea is to substitute fruit for chocolate for 7 days (or as long as you can last/handle/stomach/tolerate, you get the idea). For some […]

Watermelon Granita

Do you know what one of the greatest things is about summer? If you answered watermelon, you are correct! (If you said the beach, ice cream, mojitos, or the smell of sunblock, you would also be correct in other circumstances.) I love watermelon, and I find it ridiculous to pay twice as much for a […]
