Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie
One of the most delicious and easiest pie recipes I know. I got this wonderful recipe from my mother Pauline, who I believe got it from my Aunt Angela. I love all their pies, but this might be my favorite.
A sweet biscuit-style shortcake with two layers of juicy strawberries and cream.
Mom's Baby Berry Pies
These little pies are easy to make and everybody loves them! Serve them with a berry sauce and ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
Fresh Strawberry Granita
You can make and serve this gorgeous Italian frozen iced dessert anytime, but it's really best enjoyed during the summer months. Not only is it cold and delicious, but it forces you to stick your hot, sweaty face in the freezer four or five times to stir. The technique of using a fork several times to mix the freezing granita results in perfect icy crystals.
Rhubarb Spice Cake with Lemon Sauce
My mother got this recipe back in the 1950's from the minister's wife. It's been a family favorite ever since--even for those who claim to dislike rhubarb.
Best Tres Leches Cake
The English have their trifle, Italians have tiramisu, and Latinos have pastel de tres leches, or three milk cake. This scrumptious sponge cake absorbs its bath of sweetened condensed, evaporated and whole milk before being topped with whipped cream. Served with fresh fruit or as is, it's the perfect party dessert.
Fruit Pizza II
A fruit covered cookie crust that is shaped like a pizza. Try using star fruit, peaches, bananas, kiwi, orange slices, blueberries, and pineapples.
Coconut Cream Pie I
Being a nurse, I have little time to put into fancy recipes. This coconut cream pie is so easy and quick. It is so good, it is sinful. Use any pie crust you like.
Orange Pound Cake
This pound cake is rich, moist, and bursting with orange flavor. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream before drizzling with syrup.
