Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Ice Pops

Rating: Unrated
Simple and wholesome popsicles. My mom used to help us make these when we were kids and I still enjoy them years later. Use honey as an alternate sweetener, and blend the fruit to be either chunky or smooth.

Strawberry Soup a la Kiev

Rating: Unrated
This is an old family holiday tradition. I guess it is the red color, because strawberries sure aren't in season in December. May be served either hot or cold as a first course or a dessert. We always had it as a first course served hot.

Trail Mix Cookies

Rating: Unrated
I was determined to make a tasty, guilt-free cookie and I am very pleased with how these turned out. They're not very sweet but have a subtle flavor of applesauce and cinnamon mixed in with chocolate chips, nuts, and dried cranberries.

Authentic French Meringues from a patisserie in France.

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Rating: Unrated
This is a unique, gourmet way to serve this fantastic summer fruit! The balsamic vinegar brings out the berries' beautiful color and truly enhances their flavor. Great served with a simple pound cake, over vanilla ice cream, or simply by themselves.

Delicious Cinnamon Baked Apples

Rating: Unrated
These baked apples taste simply great on a cold winter evening or any other evening. Plus the house smells just divine while cooking them.

Coffee Jelly

Rating: Unrated
A refreshing Japanese summertime treat! My favorite way to serve it is with frozen whipped cream and chocolate sauce, although it's also delicious with ice cream, regular whipped cream, or flavored coffee cream! It can be served solid in glasses, or cubed in bowls.

Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Rating: Unrated
A healthy little treat to satisfy your chocolate desires. Can be eaten hot from the pan or chilled before serving.

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Rating: Unrated
This frozen yogurt is so much easier than homemade ice cream! Just so you know, this freezes a lot quicker than ice cream. Also, if you want tart frozen yogurt, feel free to decrease the sugar!
