I love fruit desserts that can be served warm during rainy spring or summer evenings. This is an easy dessert recipe that you can make ahead of time and heat just before serving.  The creamy, custardy base with fruit is very satisfying and has less fat and calories than a regular custard.  The whipped cream is a different story and [...]

My maternal grandmother did not inherit the “green thumb” but ”the gene” was passed on to her daughter and two grandchildren. I can remember having a garden in [...]

I find this time of year to be a “tease” for gardeners in the Northeast. Other than the brief yellow bloom of Forsythia and the peering pink of Rhododendrons, herbs are only begining to sprout. Chives blossoms have not yet opened and the Lavender, Rosemary and Sage plants are still bare. So this is a [...]
