I had made these Drunken Figs a very long time ago. What brought them to mind happened when I went looking for something, a bit different, to have as a sweet treat after dinner. I pulled out my jar of Drunken Figs and remembered I hadn’t yet shared this on my blog. When fresh figs […]
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. My biggest challenge when making it is the time it takes to do it right when I have a very busy day ahead. I know it isn’t a good excuse, but it still represents a challenge for me. However, when it comes to the weekend, we love to […]
You guessed it, another one of my marshmallow critters. As I had mentioned in my Marshmallow Ladybugs post, this was inspired from my time in the garden.

This chocolate pots recipe is one of my very favorites. This delightful and elegantly simple dessert is an extra special treat at any time.
On one of our wedding anniversaries, my husband surprised me with this incredible dessert.

We’ve since made these many times for ourselves or friends and family with rave reviews.
Just recently, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We’ve never been much for big presents, but we do like to go to an extra special place to eat on our special day. We made a decision to go to Napa for a special brunch at one of our favorite haunts. As you would […]
I love this recipe. This Panna Cotta recipe is super easy and one of my husband’s favorites. No baking is required, and I guarantee great results. What’s there not to like about that? Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert that’s something that, at times, has been misclassified as a custard. It’s not that, however, it […]
