Southern Banana Pudding

25 May

Southern Banana Pudding is the ultimate dessert comfort food.  It is rich and creamy, with the subtle flavors of banana and vanilla.  Living down south for the past few years now, I have embraced the cuisine and on the hunt for the most delicious dishes.  Banana pudding is a great way to use up those bananas before they go bad.  Sometimes I will make a banana bread, but, this is my favorite way to make quick use of ripe bananas.

This fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie recipe comes from my Great Aunt Joe.  She lived in Nicholville, NY, and always grew her own rhubarb, making the most delicious pies.  I loved when we would visit her in the summertime, she always seemed to have a fresh pie ready to eat.  Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is a  sweet dessert, perfect for summertime when everything is in season.

Blueberry Crisp is one of my families favorite fruit dessert recipes.  It is great for summertime when blueberries are in season and extra delicious.  Super easy to put together, Blueberry Crisp is perfect to bring to potlucks or picnics.  This recipe makes 12 servings, but it will go fast.  You can also halve the recipe without too much effort, the nice thing about a crisp is that unlike other desserts, measurements don’t have to be exact.

Kool-Aid Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are always a favorite to make, especially around holidays.  They are simple to make, using very few ingredients and not taking up a lot of time.  Children love to help roll out the dough and cut out the cookies, so you can make it a family event.  Baking some cut out sugar cookies is a great way to spend time with the family, and teach your children the basics of cooking.

Raspberry Pudding Cake

Raspberry Pudding Cake is a delightful little dessert, full of fruity flavor and easy to put together.  When they bake, pudding cakes magically separate into a cakey layer and a custardy pudding layer.  This old American dessert classic has re-emerged in recent years to the joy of many.

Cranberry Apple Pie

19 Nov

Every year around this time, cranberries can be found all over.  I have a tendency to use the plentiful cranberries in everything I can think of, because I think they are terrific.  Cranberry Apple Pie with Sweet Walnut Topping is nice little alternative to the traditional apple pie.  The topping is my favorite part, it is like candy coated nuts, but to the max!  Even with two cups of cranberries, this pie is sweet and the tart really helps control that, keeping the sweetness just right.
