Apple Torte with Caramel-Nut Glaze – Recipe

If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream one, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.

Dark Chocolate and Ganache Torte – Recipe

For the past three years I have been making her favorite Chocolate Cake with Fleur de Sel Caramel Filling, but this year I just wanted to do something different.

September 11th – Remembrance Day

My thoughts and prayers are with all the people left behind, and the souls of the ones perished on that sad day of September 11th, 2001.

My heart is aching for my second cousin and his family, as they lost their oldest son that day, Scott Daniel Bart, who was working in the North Tower.

Fabulous Blueberry Sheet Cake – Recipe

When blueberries are in season and the prices are very affordable, I stock up and freeze them for later use.
Besides eating them fresh, adding them to pancakes, making filling for my varenyky (perogies), preparing smoothies, I also use them in baking.
I already posted several recipes for blueberry cakes, but today I will share my latest blueberry sheet cake recipe which I love, and I am sure you will enjoy it as well.

Zucchini Rollups – Casserole Recipe with a Mexican Twist

I was looking for a recipe that was easy, tasty, and low in carbs, so I came up with a Zucchini Rollups Casserole. This recipe resembles Stuffed Shells with a Mexican twist, as I used Mild Salsa and Mexican blend shredded cheese, and the pasta was substituted by zucchini slices. If you prefer the Italian version, all you have to do is to use different cheeses, spaghetti sauce, and Italian spices.
You may pair it up with a garden salad to have a scrumptious light lunch or dinner.
