Strawberry Cream Cake--So Much Easier than it Looks!

On May 5th, 2019 by Carma Christensen

Looking for a Mother's Day treat that really says you care?  That you care enough to take on a dessert that uses three different bowls?  Plus a baking pan?  That sound like real love! Just don't tell anyone that this cake is so easy it's practically criminal.  If you can bake a box cake, you […]

The perfect chocolate chip cookie.  Some people spend their life in search of that one, perfect recipe.  Look no further--this is the chocolate  chip cookie that will stay crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside even when it cools.  Heaven in 3 inches!! Nobody needs to show you how to make cookies.  You […]

Jar Pie--I'd never heard of it until my cousin told me about baking individual pies in half pint canning jars and serving them at a party--what a fun idea! In my mind, there are two reasons to use a jar for an individual pie--one is that they're just super-cute and unusual and the other is […]

The quest for the Perfect Fresh Apple Pie! I spent a lot of time over the past couple of weeks searching for the perfect apple pie recipe--amply filled with slices of deliciously spiced apples with no "cave" between the crust and filling, and especially no oven boil-over (the piemarker's horror, especially the night before Thanksgiving. […]

Football weather at our house is also Apple Pie Filling weather!  It is a rite of passage to gather the family to survey the plentiful and delicious local apples, choose a good Saturday, and mass produce enough apple pie filling for the year.  We have been home-canning Apple Pie Filling for over 25 years now, […]

Home-canned peach pie filling--like summer sunshine in a bottle!!  Think of peach pie or cobbler in February, when we're all wondering if the sun will ever shine again here in the Pacific Northwest.  In my area, there is still a plentiful supply of late-summer peaches.  O Henry peaches are one of my favorites for their […]

Peach Pie--life doesn't get better than a cool fall evening and warm peach pie and ice cream shared with friends.  The glory of peach pie is the syrupy richness of the sweet, thickened juices of the ripe peaches, but that's also part of the drama of peach pie.  Because ripe, flavorful peaches are so juice-filled, […]

Some sources say a cobbler uses a biscuit-type topping where a "crisp" or a "crumble" uses a streusel-type topping.  If that is the case, this recipe qualifies as a crisp.  But terminology varies from region to region, so both names are in the title for searching purposes.  But it doesn't really matter what it's called--the […]

Nothing says the end of summer like fresh peaches.  I store away recipes and ideas all year for the one month of the year when fresh, local peaches are readily available here in the Utah/Idaho area.  How well I remember my youth and the days of eating fresh peaches and garden tomatoes at every meal […]

My thermometer leisurely smiled at 100 degrees today, and I broke a sweat even thinking about turning on the oven.  Perfect time for a cool dessert.  But, I ask myself, how many times can I pull out the ice cream carton before it looks like I've stopped trying. . . So--I reach in the bag […]
