Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart

Summer is officially here! That means soon there will be all kinds of fresh berries available! Yippee! I'm really more of an autumn girl - actually, around the end of May I start looking forward to sweaters, colorful leaves, hearty soups and the smell of new school supplies. It's a sickness. Add it to the… Continue reading Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

In the past several weeks I made two monumentally bad choices. Probably more, but these two will probably haunt me the rest of my life. The first mistake was trying salt n' pepper pistachios for the first time. Please hold your judgement until you find out the other thing I've never had before. Pistachios pale… Continue reading Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Double Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

This is one of my favorite recipes. It requires practically no skill at all, the time commitment is very short and the payoff is HUGE. Your friends will think these chocolates belong in a fancy boutique somewhere. Where people handle things with white gloves and there's soft music playing in the background. The smell alone… Continue reading Double Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

A little sprinkle of powdered sugar and folks will think… Continue reading Raspberry Pain au Chocolat

Bismark Doughnut Muffins

To me, you can't get better than a warm, jelly filled Bismark doughnut. I love them. It's a really good thing there is not a doughnut shop on my normal driving route because raspberry Bismarks are one of the foods I cannot resist. Really. Anybody wants to capture me and torture me for information -… Continue reading Bismark Doughnut Muffins

Raspberry Coulis

Made this quick and delicious raspberry coulis to serve with "Patrick" - Flourless Double Chocolate Truffle. Depending on how tart your berries are, you may need to add more sugar, to taste. I like mine with a hint of pucker since I'm usually serving it with something really rich. Make sure once it's boiling, you… Continue reading Raspberry Coulis

Super Moist Chocolate Cake

This is a really easy (one bowl!) chocolate cake. Nothing too fancy, but it's deliciously moist and the perfect amount of chocolate. I cut each cake in half and put raspberry jam between the layers then frosted it with a rich chocolate frosting. Today we had it to celebrate my daughter's 4th birthday. It's the… Continue reading Super Moist Chocolate Cake
