Chocolate Hazelnut Pots De Creme

Holiday Wreath Cake

I couldn’t pass up The Holiday Wreath Bundt Pan at the store. It whispered “buy me and make a holiday cake”. Of course I gave in and worked my magic in the kitchen! I used ingredients that you will see an abundance of at grocery stores this season; cranberries, pistachios, sweetened coconut flakes, (this was […]

Pear Almond Puff Pastries

Puff pastry dough is easy to work with and is used to make croissants, napoleons, turnovers and more. I created these pastries one evening while craving Pear Almond Bars. I had a box of puff pastry in the freezer so I decided to make something similar. Puff pastry bakes quickly and these delightful desserts were prepared in less […]
