Canned Apple Pie Filling/ Apple Crisp

Canned Apple Pie Filling/ Apple Crisp by J. Gino Genovesi

Apples are a very versatile fruit. Apples are used in many pastries, pies and salads. I think apples are used more in pies than in other way. . It save lots of time to have a "done" product for use. This canned recipe is both economical and good. Try this recipe and let me know if you like it.

Oatmeal Blondies

Oatmeal Blondies by Farrell May Podgorsek

I couldn't decide what to make one day. Did I want Blondies or Oatmeal Cookies. Why not both? The bars came out exactly as I wanted them to. Moist on the inside like a good Blondie should be, with a nice chewy texture from the rolled oats. I made these with chocolate chips and cinnamon, a great combination. Other nice additions would…

Chocolate Chip Meringue Bars

Chocolate Chip Meringue Bars by Farrell May Podgorsek

A different twist on a chocolate chip bar. The egg yolks are used in the dough, and the whites are beaten with brown sugar to make a meringue topping for the bars. Made by his mother, these bars were a childhood favorite of my husband. It was a race to the mailbox when a shoebox full of these bars would be sent to him at…

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce by Farrell May Podgorsek

The photo does not do justice to one of the best desserts I have made. The Pumpkin Bread Pudding melts in your mouth while you inhale the warm spice tones of cinnamon, allspice, ginger and clove. The silky Bourbon Sauce topped the adult's desserts. My husband went for pumpkin overload by adding Pumpkin Ice Cream. This will definitely…

Lemon Berry Pie with Meringue Top

Lemon Berry Pie with Meringue Top by Balicravings

Spring is here. The supermarkets are full of berries, although the self picking season is still far away. We do love picking fruits and vegetables and eating them fresh from the trees or bushes. Summer is the time that we are out in the fields, and return home directly to the kitchen….. But for now, frozen berries can give the…

Bourbon Pecan Cake

Bourbon Pecan Cake by Farrell May Podgorsek

This versatile cake has a mild bourbon flavor. It is a popular adult birthday cake in my family. Chocolate lovers can add chocolate chips to the topping. Frosting lovers can make a layer cake to fill and frost. Cream cheese or buttercream made with bourbon would be nice. Tip: Make sure that the Bourbon you use is not harsh. For a…

Date & Ginger Couscous Pudding

Date & Ginger Couscous Pudding by Casey Angelova

The time has come for another Top Chef It Yourself challenge, in which participants will need to create a dish using dates, ginger and couscous... my mind immediately went to Moroccan cuisine, but I also figure everyone else would have the same idea. Trying to think outside of the box, my mind went towards... rice pudding, but why…

Jewish Apple Cake

Jewish Apple Cake by Farrell May Podgorsek

This is my version of a traditional Jewish Apple Cake. It is one of my Fall favorites. It stays moist and flavorful for days, a good choice when you need to bake ahead of time. Of course, the cake is also wonderful fresh from the oven, cooled just enough to not burn your mouth. I have modified the traditional recipe to include a…

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust

Carmelized Apple Tart with Sherry Crust by Farrell May Podgorsek

This crust complements many fillings. The Carmelized Apple in Cider Sauce and tart crust are prepared and cooked separately, then combined and baked for a few minutes. The crust stays flaky and the apples soft and carmelized. It was a perfect ending for Thanksgiving dinner. Be sure to always use a good quality drinking sherry.…

Homemade Fruit Marshmallows

Homemade Fruit Marshmallows by Farrell May Podgorsek

Marshmallows are fun to make. Vanilla marshmallows are great, but then I thought, why not use fruit purée instead of water? Success! Fruity marshmallows are beautiful to look at and taste great. The fruit gives a nice undertone of flavor, and additions such as candied ginger and nuts dress them up. To make a fruit purée place cut…

Poached Mandarins.

Poached Mandarins. by Denise C.

This recipe is simple to make, but quite a show stopper dessert. It is made in a spiced, fragrant syrup, but it isn't overly sweet. It is nice because it can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a day or so before serving, so it is perfect for dinner parties, family dinners, and even holiday tables.
