Blueberry Cheesecake with a graham cracker crust, cream cheese filling, and blueberry topping

No Bake Cheesecake

My Mom has been making this cheesecake for as long as I can remember. It's a lighter, fluffier version of a baked cheesecake. It's great to make in the hot summer months, especially when you don't want to heat up your oven for hours to bake a traditional cheesecake. You can use any type of topping you prefer. Our family likes either blueberry or cherry the best, but you can use peach or strawberry, or…... view full recipe

Watch me make Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps these LIVE on my…... view full recipe

Creamed Bananas in Puffed Pastry Shells

I invented this Creamed Bananas in Puffed Pastry Shells recipe one day when I was a fairly new innkeeper. I was having an overnight inspection to become part of the Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado Association. There was a 190 point inspection checklist at the time, including an overnight stay by the inspector. I served a 3-course breakfast every day of the nearly 18 years I was an innkeeper, and that morning the dessert…... view full recipe

I hope to be like her when I grow up 😉 Feel free to use any of…... view full recipe

Beignets with powdered sugar

Beignets

Beignets... YUM! I actually ate Navajo Fry Bread, and then Sopapillas before I had Beignets. They are also like a light, fluffy doughnut. They are all fairly similar, but some Beignets, and most doughnuts, use yeast, and Fry Bread and Sopapillas use baking powder, and they are all made just a little differently. But since this post is about Beignets, I'll share the recipe I use for making these pillowy, puffy treats. They are a…... view full recipe
