Classic Italian dessert made with ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese. It can be made in a trifle bowl or a springform pan.

Blueberry Custard

Rating: 4 stars 50
The soft, warm texture of the custard is something gentle for the waking tummy and tongue. It only takes a few minutes to prepare -- great for dessert, too! Drizzle with hot jam or maple syrup. In the summer, garnish with fresh raspberries and mint from the garden!

3-Ingredient Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 25
This is a Japanese cheesecake which is so light that it seems a little like a souffle. You only need cream cheese, eggs, and white chocolate to make this easy gluten-free dessert! This cheesecake tastes best after it has been chilled for a a few hours in the fridge. It keeps in the fridge for a few days. Serve as is or with a drizzle of pureed berries.

Maple Bacon Monkey Bread

This monkey bread recipe is a blend of two existing recipes. The idea was courtesy of the St. Louis Post Dispatch. It's a sweet monkey bread with a special ingredient — salty bacon!

Cranberry Mascarpone Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
A thick and glossy cranberry sauce blankets this tangy, orange-infused mascarpone cheesecake. Make sure to start early, as the flavors and textures need 24 hours to marry!

Pumpkin Zeppole

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
As in virtually every other pumpkin dessert, I think using pure canned pumpkin will give you the best results--it has more concentrated flavor than freshly roasted pumpkin. These light, not-too-sweet Italian doughnuts were adapted from a recipe by my old friend, Jennifer Perillo. I usually toss these in cinnamon sugar when they're still slightly warm.
