Balsamic Glazed Fresh Melon Cake Recipe

Balsamic Glazed Melon Cake Recipe

For a while now, I’ve been imagining how pretty super thin melon slices would be stacked together — in the form of a cake.  I’m not the first to think of a cake made of fresh melon — but, I’ve never seen one quite like this.  This is one idea that’s been on my want-to-do […]

Caramelized Banana-Blueberry Gelato Recipe

Beach and rocks

It turned out to be a good thing that we couldn’t eat our most recent batch of bananas quickly enough.  I bought way too many at once, and somehow did the same thing with blueberries. I couldn’t very well let these delicious fruits go to waste, so I created this super interesting and crazy delicious […]

Honey-Grapefruit Popsicle Recipe

Honey Grapefruit Popsicle Recipe

 My current favorite breakfast is a Ruby grapefruit cut in half with honey drizzled over it.  I just love the perfect blend of the tart, juicy grapefruit with the sweet honey.  Each bite is perfectly balanced. I’ve been loving this so much that I decided to deconstruct it, then reshape it into an ice cold […]

Individual-Coffee-Chocolate-Mud-Pie-Recipe-bite

My dad turned 80 last week.  80! Think of every positive, loving adjective you can, and my dad’s all that. Plus, he’s the most youthful, active 80-year-old in existence. My dad doesn’t have a day without an hour with the LA Times and his dog at the local coffee shop, a hike and/or a visit […]

Espresso Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Chocolate-Espresso Sauce Recipe

I eat it with a spoon. I dip my biscotti in it. I drizzle it over my ice cream. I cover strawberries with it. I pour it over bananas. Really, I could drink it. Over the weekend I served it with Individual Chocolate-Coffee Mud Pies for my dad’s birthday.  (We’ll have that tomorrow.  Stay tuned.) […]

Spiced Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

April-9-Spiced-Olive-Oil-Chocolate-Chip-Banana-Bread-Recipe-yellow-cookingontheweekends.com_

Chocolate chips or not, banana bread has always been, and always will be cake. Sure, it’s shaped like bread, presented and sliced like bread, and well, perhaps we feel better having it for breakfast when we call it bread — but lest be real, it’s cake. It’s soft, sweet and warm.  Ummm?  Yep, it’s cake. […]

Cinnamon Ice Cream Recipe

Cinnamon Ice Cream Recipe-cinnamon sticks-creamy, brown| cookingontheweekends.com

I love cinnamon and I can’t imagine life in my kitchen without it.  It’s as crucial a staple as olive oil or butter as far as I’m concerned.  And I’d be very surprised if any of you didn’t have cinnamon in your pantry. This heavenly spice is packed with health benefits and adds warmth and […]

Frozen Chocolate Pistachio Truffle Bars

Frozen Chocolate Pistachio Truffle Bars-red-pink-brown-3 | cookingonthewwwkends.com

A couple of weeks ago, my 9-year-old son and I made a mud pie for my father-in-law’s birthday celebration. Hoping nothing too bizarre would be selected, I let my son choose the flavors. (This was risky because his favorite flavors are often florescent colors of the rainbow!) I was so happy — and relieved — […]
