sunday night sweet tooth!!

To end the weekend on a sweet note, I thought a luxurious, slightly dense cake was in order! This was not just any cake, but rather a family favorite and old recipe passed down…
The cake has an interesting array of ingredients, including both pineapple and bananas, and is filled in/topped off with a silky cream cheese frosting coated in toasted coconut that just exudes sensuality.
Once it was ready to slice into and eat, the vision of heaven glimmered across the plates! With each bite of the cake, the desire to eat more and more became apparent… this was not going to be just a single slice of heaven, but rather the following day… a whipping on the treadmill!

at a low simmer…

an old childhood favorite…

A craving filtered through the house earlier for some delicious, creamy rice pudding… not just any old rice pudding, but an old family recipe passed down.
It starts with your typical ingredients that are expected in rice pudding, but with some extra special ingredients that can only stay with me…
The cooking process takes time and is not one to rush… a great deal of elbow grease and willpower is needed, but the end result… well that is nothing short of magnificent!
Creamy, smooth, slightly sweet and full of exotic, intoxicating spices… bite after bite of this chilled, textural wonder makes enjoying just one bowlful almost an injustice.
