Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

I love how deliciously messy cobbler looks -that warm sweet fruit-filled dough as it slowly melts the cold ice cream on top. It’s like Yin and Yang in your mouth as you take a spoonful of it. Yum. I found peach slices in syrup in glass jars which makes peach cobbler quick and easy -no peeling and slicing […]

Mixed Berries Cheesecake Galette

Mixed Berries Cheesecake Galette

When this galette first appeared on my FB newsfeed, I was instantly attracted to it. I immediately saved the link to the recipe and screenshot it so I’ll have a reminder to try it the soonest possible. It’s  just so pretty and rustic and no doubt, delicious.  I know a keeper when I see one and […]

Mini Cheesecake (Baked)

Mini Cheesecake (Baked)

No-fuss serving, easy to make, and bakes faster than a whole cheesecake are some of the reasons why this is one of my favorite desserts to make not to mention that I LOOOVE cheesecakes and it’s size makes it easy to control how much to eat..how I wish that works on me but I just […]

Pecan Pie with Rum & Honey

Pecan Pie with Rum & Honey

Would you believe that I finished this whole pie all by myself?!?  Yes, it’s true, though not in one sitting, more like half in one go.   My husband unfortunately got sick on the day I made this and the kids just flatly said no, they prefer the banana cake that I baked earlier better. […]

Grilled Nutella Pizza

Grilled Nutella Pizza

I thought..what if, I grill a pizza dough, spread some Nutella on it, top it with roasted nuts ( pecans, walnuts) and some craisins then sprinkle grated white chocolate on top (as cheese).  Sounds good, right ?  Well, it is!  I just made up this dessert pizza over the weekend, it’s so good that I […]

French Coconut Pie

I’ve mentioned so many times before how nuts I am about coconuts even more so when a recipe is this easy. Although I made my pastry crust from scratch, it’s still easier than this: ..this is the coconut cream pie that I made last week; and while it was delicious, I was  disappointed with how […]
