Moon Pie

Moon Pie by Syi

This is basically an open faced eclair with a slight twist. A fairly light dessert that's pretty easy to make. It's called MOON pie because when the pate a choux is baked, in a sheet form for this, it has bumps & dips like the surface of the moon. Although I like making homemade pastry cream & cocoa fudge icing when I make eclairs &…

Zucchini Spice Cake with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting

Zucchini Spice Cake with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting by Syi

I first made this recipe several years ago for Thanksgiving (in place of the zucchini bread that my mom or I usually bake). My family enjoyed it and said that the pineapple cream cheese icing really set it off.

Cranberry Vodka Slush

Cranberry Vodka Slush by Syi

A quick, easy drink to make. This recipe makes quite a bit and it can be kept in the freezer for months, as long as it's in a tightly sealed container. I've made this for holidays, family get-togethers, baby showers (non-alcoholic for the mom-to-be of course), bridal showers/bachelorette parties and other events.

It makes a great…

"Dirty Arnold Palmer" Cocktail

"Dirty Arnold Palmer" Cocktail by Syi

I just love good ol' lemonade and Southern sweet iced tea, so combining the two (1/2 lemonade & 1/2 iced tea to make one drink) was a brilliant idea of Arnold Palmer. However, this one is "kicked-up a notch"....there's still lemonade in it, but in place of the regular sweet iced tea, I'm using Sweet Tea Vodka. Still refreshing &…

Chocolate Zabaglione

Chocolate Zabaglione by Syi

I just love a good zabaglione! This is another recipe, from my huge chocolate recipes cookbook, that I've made. It only uses a little chocolate, so it's best to use one with a minimum of 62% cocoa solids so that you get a good chocolate flavor. I use Valrhona.
