Healthy Banana Pecan Ice-Cream!
During a time that many of us are trying to eat healthier, I strongly feel we also need a healthy balance. Diets that cut too much of this or too much of that often set one up for failure. You know how it goes, that which we cannot have we want more of. That doesn’t … Continue reading
Raspberry Macarons with Dark Chocolate Ganache
I had wanted this post to be a Valentine related post, but due to launching a website for my photography, A.V.

Lemon Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting!
I offered to make cupcakes for a family memorial reception last weekend. Little did I know at the time what I was getting myself into.

Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Sundaes with Swiss Meringue Buttercream!

Honeyed Apricot (Peach) Marshmallows!
I recently received a request for the Honeyed Apricot Marshmallow recipe from my “Marshmallow Madness!” cookbook. I’ve been dying to make these marshmallows, but have gotten so caught up in other things that I kind of forgot about them. We all need to slow down. Stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things. Take … Continue reading
