I really had fun with some awesome recipes this month. It seems you did, too, because almost all of this month’s recipes were popular and well-received. If you missed any of them, I hope you’ll take this chance to catch up!
I’m having a chunk of coffee cake right now, as a matter of fact. I’d tell you it helps me think, but honestly, the only thing I’m thinking about is crumb topping. And lots of it.
This pavlova, by the way, is the perfect classical dessert, because it’s sort of classical itself. It’s named after a Russian ballerina. And, just like her, it’s delicate and fabulous.
I missed Zucchini Day. It just passed me right by. Several of my friends have asked me for more zucchini recipes. So, here I am. I’ve put together an amazing collection of recipes that will be perfect for using your bounteous harvest.
It seems like cheesecake bars are like the cool kid on the block these days. Everyone is making them. You name it, you can make it into a cheesecake bar.
When I told Robb I intended to make Strawberry Pudding, he wondered aloud whether it even existed. It will when I make it, I replied. He should just trust me, because it’s one of the tastiest and creamiest desserts I’ve had in a long time!
You should know that it doesn’t bother me ONE BIT to have cobbler instead of cake. In fact, I bought the biggest Costco-sized box of blackberries I could find, and made this cobbler twice. Once for me, and once for Carla.
Not too long ago, we went to this fancy donut place in town, and Robb got a toasted coconut donut, which is one of the best things in the entire world. I wanted to capture that same flavor in this milkshake. I knew I hit a home run when I heard Robb shout from the other room, “Are you kidding me?!”
The book says it’s called a visiting cake because you can see your neighbors coming up the road, and throw this cake together before they get to the front door. It’s just about right, too. This thing was easy like Sunday morning.
When I informed Robb of an upcoming dinner get-together, and asked what I should make for dessert, cake and dip was his idea. Changing the chocolate dip to caramel dip was his idea, too. Changing the white cake to brown sugar cake was my idea, though. I’m taking full credit.
