Sometimes you just gotta make a “cheat” easy recipe. This is especially true during the heat of summer. A few weeks ago, I had a friend visiting during these hot days, and I wanted something sweet to enjoy as we lounged around the air conditioned house in the evening. So, I found this Lemon Cheesecake Mousse that fit the bill. Typically I dislike no-bake cheesecake, but I found that as a mousse it works well, and the lemon is perfect for those hot days.
Every year I look forward to Rhubarb coming into season at the Farmers Market. This year, I made a few different recipes, some of which were let-downs, but this Rhubarb Crumble Ice Cream was a real winner.

And, for those of you who care, it’s gluten free! Honestly that didn’t even occur to me until I was mid-baking, but yay for those of you who are looking for something new that is flourless. This cake is also one of those that tastes better the next day – if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, that is. Because I’m not taking my baked goods into the office anymore, I always have leftovers nowadays, and you might be in the same boat. Continue reading
20 of the past 27 days have been over 90 degrees here. Consequently, I haven’t been baking a whole lot. This Danish was an exception – it’s what I call a “cheat” recipe, using pre-made ingredients…but sometimes that’ll have to do. The baking time is short and so isn’t too painful. Continue reading
Summertime! It’s July! Our lockdown has moved from the living room to the backyard since the season allows. And, along with grilling s’mores, it’s totally ice cream time. As has been an ongoing effort on this blog, we often try to share recipes for using our Sweet Jumbles marshmallows.
