Cheesecake Surprised?

Before cheesecakes became popular, they were served in the more obscure eatery’s. It was an atypical dessert and simply not for everyone. Sort of like Tiramisu until it became trendy. Now there are cheesecakes everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Cheesecake cupcakes, lollipops, muffins, brownies, pies, even cheesecake flavored ice cream, and the cheesy dessert trend … Continue reading Cheesecake Surprised?

The Art Of Desserts

Many years ago I sold desserts from my online shop Delightful Biteful. If you haven't sold products online, I'm here to tell you, it's anything but easy. A relaxing diversion was editing and posting pictures of the desserts for sale on my website. The irresistible cakes, pastries, and chocolates reminded me of the reason for … Continue reading The Art Of Desserts

The Many Flavors of Ice Cream

Decadent Ice Cream Sundaes

The world has grown in so many ways and ice cream has evolved along with it.  I was thinking about all the wonderful ice cream flavors there are to choose from today and it’s often hard to decide.

Computers Art & Crepes for Dessert

It was a very busy and yes, stressful week. Returning to work after being out sick for three weeks made me feel like it was my very first day again.

Desserts and Snacks For The Flu

The coffee cake my family brought did not have coffee in it and I questioned why it was not called "Cake for Coffee" or something of that nature and my … Continue reading Drinking Coffee with Fond Memories

The American World of Desserts

I was recently looking for desserts to serve at our annual rock-n-roll marathon. This is a big get together where friends bring a song list with three of their favorite songs from a pre-chosen era and each list gets played. The penalty for bringing commercial top 40 songs is cleaning up afterward. This makes the … Continue reading The American World of Desserts

Desserts & Snacks of Coney Island

As a child, I had the privilege of living a few blocks from Coney Island. Okay, about twenty blocks. But when I stepped outside I could see the Wonder Wheel and the landmark Parachute Jump and I knew that some of the tastiest treats I could ever have 'til this day, were right down the … Continue reading Desserts & Snacks of Coney Island

It’s All Greek Food To Me

Food from Greece

As a child I heard the expression, "It's all Greek to me". The phrase struck me as curious so I had to think it over. It might be because Greece is so vast. With so many islands and dialects akin to colorful history and contributions to our never changing world, it is simply hard to … Continue reading It’s All Greek Food To Me
