Nordic Ware Star Bundt Cake Pan

Nordic Ware Star Bundt Pan

Popsicles and ice cream are always welcome treats during hot weather, but they’re best for the times you’re eating at home. When you’re eating outdoors at a picnic or during a barbecue, you need a dessert that is a little bit sturdier, like a batch of brownies or a bundt cake. Nordic Ware’s Star Bundt Cake Pan is one way to ensure that your signature ... Read More »

Red White and Blue Berry Pudding Pops

Red White and Blue Berry Pudding Pops

Pudding pops were always one of my favorite frozen treats when I was a kid. It wasn’t just the Bill Cosby commercials that made me like them, however. Pudding gave the pops a dense, creamy texture that was very different than regular ice cream, and was very delicious.

Whipped cream is a great way to top off just about any dessert. It is sweet and light, just as good for breaking up the intensity of chocolate cake as it is to bringing some richness to a bowl of strawberries.

In other cases, these bright colors come in the form of red, white and blue decorations. This is one holiday that I pay close attention to the colors of the ingredients I’m working with ...

Red, White and Blue Whoopie Pies

Red, White and Blue Whoopie Pies

I think of whoopie pies as a fun dessert, rather than a serious one. It’s not that they can’t be seriously delicious, but since they tend to be single serving treats without fancy decorations that you can eat with your hands, it’s easy to put them in the “fun” category. I love fun desserts because you can do so much with them. You can incorporate ... Read More »
