 Usually in the summer when most people have whittled down and are strutting around town in slinky summer attire, I am busting seams left and right after gorging on my favourite ice cream treats...I can't help myself, I blame it on the heat!! These homemade Nutty Cones...

 I don't know about you, but after the Thanksgiving feast(s), the heavier autumn desserts and the hundreds of Halloween chocolate bars that I have consumed, I'm kinda craving some fruit! I don't think I need to point out the fact that my fruit is also smothered in a cr...

 Although I am not a huge fan of a sticky, hot heat wave, I do love summer for other reasons such as cool, still mornings, hazy summer evenings, meadows of wildflowers and sweet, juicy peaches that are just perfect to make this classic, porch sittin' treat!...

 Lemon curd is a soft, custard-like preserve that is sweet and tart at the same time and is easy as pie to whip up and about as versatile as duct tape!  

Made from juicy lemons, sugar, fresh eggs and butter...it is terrific on Angel Food cake, s...

 Since it is March 1st., I thought I would get a head start on my St. Patrick's Day posts and make these festive Jell-O cups...and because Isabel and I wanted to eat the jelly powder!

 These Jell-O jars are very easy to make, but a little time consuming s...

 My Dad isn't really what I call a "sweet tooth", but every now and then, he does love good homemade, old school favourites like raisin pie, buttertarts and of course, rich and creamy rice pudding. I can remember if we had leftover rice, my Mom would whip up this class...

 I remember every year, the whole family would go to my Uncle Bill and Aunt Dorothy's house for Christmas. Everyone eagerly awaited the arrival of my Gramma...not only because she was the best Gramma ever, but because she was in charge of making this rich, steamed carr...
