By now it’s no secret – I love a good boozy bundt cake.  This recipe was inspired by a nice amount of honey liqueur leftover from in a bottle, and I wanted to find a creative way to use it up.  Honey and walnuts seemed like a good pairing, so I gave it a try!  Enjoy a slice with a scoop of Greek vanilla frozen yogurt and dessert is served.

The produce right now at farmer’s markets is simply overwhelming!  I walk around the Union Square Greenmarket here in New York City and don’t even know where to begin.  This weekend, one booth with one very special ingredient beckoned me closer – a pint of glistening red currants.

I have always had the theory that biscotti were the perfect little treat.  It’s essentially a cookie, yet totally acceptable for breakfast.  Having an afternoon coffee break?  So much better with biscotti.  How about a little something sweet after dinner?  The answer is once again biscotti.

As I walked into Whole Foods this week, a display of glistening ruby red cherries called my name.

I picked up a package, not knowing what I would do with this beautiful fruit.  Maybe I would enjoy them straight out of the bag, maybe would make a jam.  I had all the ingredients on hand to make a crisp and voila!  Summertime dessert is served.

I made this Coca-Cola Cake for a very special person…my sister!

Today is her 30th birthday and we will be celebrating with a picnic in Central Park followed by some outdoor music by the New York Philharmonic.  I chose this recipe because it is a cake that can be easy transported in our picnic basket – I think she will love it!

Wow, I can’t believe my little sister is now in her thirties!  The best is yet to come and I know she will rock this decade even more than the last one.   Happy Birthday!!
