Lime Bars

Lime Bars with Confectioners' Sugar

I bake lemon bars all the time, both because I love them and because my friends and family love them. Lemons are probably the first fruit that you think of when you think of this type of shortbread + custard bar, but they’re not the only citrus fruit that can be used to make this type of dessert.

Pear Custard Loaf Cake

Pear Custard Loaf Cake

When pears are in season, I eat a lot of them. I love their sweet, delicate flavor and enjoy them on their own, with good cheeses and baked into tasty desserts. I am particularly fond of comice pears, and since I happened to get a wonderfully big box of them from Harry & David over the holidays, I have been using a lot of them. ... Read More »

Dessert Wine and Raspberry Tiramisu

Dessert Wine Tiramisu

A traditional tiramisu is a “pick me up” because ladyfingers are soaked in an espresso mixture before being layered together with rich cream and more ladyfingers. This is not your traditional tiramisu, but it is still a great way to end a meal – especially if you’re celebrating particularly festive occasion.
