Coconut Blackberry Rum Cake

This yellow cake combines the flavor of coconut with blackberries to make a tasty, sweet treat that everyone will love.  It's almost as fun to bake from scratch as it is to eat the food afterwards.

Blueberry Ricotta Squares

These squares are extremely moist.  You'll absolultely love the taste (and where else will you find this much flavour in something so easy to bake?)

Secret Ingredient Chili

A friend in New Albany, Indiana introduced me to the secret ingredient for making great chili: chocolate!  You can use unsweetened cocoa or Hershey's bars.

This chili isn't too spicy.  If you like more kick then toss in some diced habanaro and/or tabasco sauce.

Lemon White Chocolate Cheesecake

Bored of plain cheesecakes?  Try this variation.  I really like lemon flavour, so I stepped up the amount of lemon peel.  The lemon curd sauce is simply delicious.  (In fact, I'm tempted to just eat the sauce by itself)

Calgary Stampede Ribs

I've made this ribs recipe multiple times and keep coming back to it.  It's got a homemade dry rub and BBQ sauce.  These are bound to be very popular, so I recommend making a double or triple batch.  The really nice thing is that you can bake them in advance (even the day before) so that when you get to grilling, it's only a couple minutes to tasty ribs!

Snow Topped Chocolate Mint Cookies

These cookies have really good flavor -- strong chocolate with a hint of peppermint.  And they look great.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

These sandwich cookies will impress everyone.  They're soft, moist, and very tasty.

People will be surprised when they bite in and find a cherry in the middle.  It's your choice if you give away the secret to how you got the cherry in there.


Cornmeal Chicken with Peach Salsa

A surprisingly easy meal, this chicken breast has been covered with cornmeal and then served with tomato-peach salsa and a side of yankee cornbread.  You can make this faster then you think and have a tasty dinner in no time.

Apple Cheese Torte

I made this for a company pot-luck/cooking competition.  It's a great combination of a lot of flavors -- guaranteed to leave everyone wanting more (there's a blue ribbon to prove it!).
