Cake Pops


Here's a selection of some of the fun cakes I've made.

Homemade Cuban Sandwiches with Mojo Sauce

Dagnabit! I made these really awesome Cuban sandwiches, but it was so long ago that I can't remember how I made them. I do remember pork, ham, pickles, mustard, swiss cheese, and a really great mojo sauce. But I don't know how I did it!!!

I was looking for something on my computer and found where I wrote down the mojo recipe!

Half onion
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cumin
Zest of one lime
Juice of one lime (about ¼ cup)
Juice of 3 navel oranges (about 1 cup)
Olive oil

I threw it all in my mini cuisinart, drizzling the olive oil in through the holes in the top as it spun.

Pizza Perfected

We've been making pizza quite a bit now since my first post on pizza, so it's time to give the latest and greatest! (I hesitate to say the perfected recipe, because it is far from that, but it's pretty darn good!)

I'm back . . . Mediterranean Couscous Salad

I know, I know, it's been a while. The problem is photos on the camera, pictures on the mac, writing on the laptop. It all needs to come together in one place. (enough excuses)

I have a new favorite meal. My friend, Amy, made this for book club. Amy cracks me up. I was raving over the meal and asking where she got the recipe. Here's what she said, "See, one of the good things about getting cancer is people bring you yummy meals, then you can ask for the recipe!" Such a great attitude. I loved hearing her stories - listening to her describe The Look she would get when someone would realize she had cancer and give her the pity face. She mostly avoided it by donning the Polar Ice Cap to keep her hair follicles frozen so as not to succumb to the chemo.

Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy

I do this to myself; I know. I'm always trying to make every occasion FABULOUS. Well, when the girls have someone spend the night, we like to make a fun breakfast in the morning. (Crepes, pancakes, waffles, etc.) Somehow, somewhere, I heard of the idea for chocolate gravy.  I mean, aren't hot steamy biscuits enough? Not anymore.
