Each January, we look forward to the appearance of our annual treats … Girl Scout cookies! We all have our favorites, but their biggest seller remains the thin mint.

No Fry “Fried” Banana Pudding Ice Cream
Remember when Chi-Chi’s introduced us to fried ice cream long ago. Simply scrumptious. Enjoy my version with a twist… no frying fried ice cream! The crispy cereal is crunchy like fried without all that… and a banana pudding version on a puddle of dulce de leche… just because!

Clementine Shortbread Cornbread
Little bags of clementines appear in stores come fall and winter — an early sign that the holiday season is upon us.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Light n’ Crispy Glazed Doughnuts
Do you want to “WoW” your family and guests with a sweet treat that is sure to please? If you’ve never made these quick and oh-so-easy doughnuts, the time has come. They can be “dressed” in a variety of ways for any occasion… including with fun sprinkles.
Many of us will recognize this southern Christmas dish. Our grandmothers made it and their mamas did too, served in a pretty glass bowl. We turned this fruity favorite into a fun little dessert to enjoy anytime. Can be made a day ahead.
