Refreshing Limoncello Cake

Rating: Unrated
This is a perfect ending to an Italian dinner! A favorite of my family's, this recipe was born as we were trying to figure out how to incorporate our bottles of imported limoncello into a yummy dessert. It's our adult twist on the always refreshing lemonade cake (and surprisingly guilt-free!).

Pears Panos

Bosc Pears make their own light syrup right on the stove top. Add a touch of vanilla and orange liqueur, and you have an autumn dessert that won't weigh you down.

Chocolate Ganache Icing

This frosting recipe quickly makes a rich, creamy, and dark chocolate icing with just bittersweet chocolate, brandy, butter, and heavy cream.

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Rating: Unrated
This is a dense cheesecake that is very smooth and melts in your mouth. The white chocolate brandy sauce tops it off. I just nap it over the center of the slice of cheesecake on the plate. I garnish it with mint leaves and either raspberries or strawberries.

Peach Amaretto Upside-Down Cake

Peach upside-down cake set in an Amaretto topping.

Chocolate Orange Fondue

Rating: Unrated
A chocolate and orange piece of heaven, great with strawberries and cake for dipping! For best results use a chocolate that is at least 70 percent cocoa.

Golden Rum Cake

Rating: Unrated
My family requests this rummy Bundt cake from me at all our get-togethers. The butter rum glaze makes it special. An easy way to glaze your cake is to pour half of the glaze into Bundt pan, reinsert cake, then pour the rest of glaze over the bottom of the cake. Let absorb well then invert back onto platter.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Fancy taste without all the work. This cake is wonderful for a get together or just a special occasion at home. Using a box cake mix as a base it's a real time saver!
