I was once asked where creativity comes from. It can be found anywhere and everywhere. A pot of basil can inspire pesto but then what to do with it. Why turn it into a Goat Cheese Pesto Tart of course. A great dessert you taste can make you think of what you would do with it – how you […]

This Lemon Meringue Cake was inspired by a good friend of mine who had eaten a slice in New York.  While this doesn’t resemble the one she had, the idea fascinated me since I had never thought of anything like it and I have to say I’m really excited to share this cake. My first […]

 With Mother’s Day upon us, this Vanilla Mousse Torte with Strawberries is a perfect do-ahead dessert to honor her.  It is light, full of flavor, not too sweet, beautiful, easy to make and almost no bake.  I’m not sure what more could be asked of a dessert. Chocolate mousse is a given, but a good […]
