Semi Homemade Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Bars

     So, I recently made my very first batch of lemon bars.     I know. I'm just one of those people who doesn't particularly favor lemon desserts.  I love adding lemon as an accent to a savory dish.  Nothing beats a fresh pop of lemon juice in sauces and marinades.  I also add lemon… Continue reading Semi Homemade Lemon Poppy Seed Cheesecake Bars


Nut-Free Orange Persimmon Frangipane Tart

My next recipe features one of my favorite seasonal fruits for fall: persimmons!     I absolutely love persimmons.  I used them for the first time last year for Thanksgiving and I became smitten.  They're the strangest fruit that I never knew was perfect for me.    The only way I can describe their texture is… Continue reading Nut-Free Orange Persimmon Frangipane Tart
