Mocha Coconut Bread

Mocha Coconut Bread

My local Starbucks has a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino on the menu as one of their summer blended drinks. The frappuccino is a combination of coffee, chocolate and coconut and – for a coconut-lover like me – it is a very good combination. I don’t want an icy frozen coffee drink every day, however, so I played around with these flavors myself to create a Mocha ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Coconut Scones

Meyer Lemon Coconut Scones

While Meyer lemons seem to be in stores more often during the spring, Meyer lemon trees bear fruit all year round. This means that new flowers are budding right alongside ripe lemons, so there is never an off-season for these sweet, lovely lemons. I love working with Meyer lemons when I have the chance because they bring in lots of lemon flavor – just like ... Read More »

I’ve been on a bit of a rice krispy treat kick lately, making batch after batch of the marshmallow cereal treats. They were always a favorite of mine when I was a kid.

It’s easy to flavor the egg and milk batter that is the base of french toast by adding spices or extracts to it, but you can take your french toast to another level by adding different flavors and textures to the exterior of the toast, as well. Good examples of that are my Crispy Cereal-Crusted French Toast and Snickerdoodle French Toast, both of which have ... Read More »

Banana Coconut Smoothie

Banana Coconut Smoothie

When I have a bunch of overripe bananas, they usually end up in a batch of banana bread. It’s easy to make – especially if you use my One Bowl Banana Bread recipe – and it is always a crowd pleaser. The problem with crowd pleasers is that it is helpful to have a crowd, particularly if you have enough bananas on hand for more ... Read More »

Easy Coconut Custard Pie

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie

Coconut custard pie was always a favorite in my family, but it was also a pie that we rarely ate because it was deemed difficult to make. It was many years before I ever made a coconut custard pie from scratch and when I did, I found that it was much less difficult than I had been led to believe. It was more likely that ...

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie Cupcakes

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie

During the fall, one of my favorite recipes to make is for my Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes. They’re pumpkin pie in a unique single-serving format that is perfect for pumpkin lovers who don’t want to make a traditional pie every single time they want a pumpkin dessert. The cupcakes also don’t need a crust, so they’re quicker and easier to make than that traditional pie. ... Read More »
