Dessert is subjective. Sometimes you want a thick, rich piece of chocolate cake. Other times, you want a creamy, velvety custard. Today, it’s all about the times when you want a light, fruity, and a not-too-sweet dessert.
This lemon pound cake with strawberry white wine compote is more about the natural sweetness of the strawberries that are mixed with mildly sweetened white wine syrup served over a light and tender pound cake.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. When I was young, I used to love getting dressed up to go trick-or-treating around my neighborhood. There was this one house that always gave out KING size candy bars – we always went there first! Now that I am a little too old to go around to my neighbors asking for candy, I love to make my own Halloween treats!

I currently have an out of control summer garden that includes several overgrowing zucchini plants. I have grilled, steamed, broiled, and sautéed zucchini all summer long….
With three zucchini plants still rapidly growing in early fall, I wanted to try a new recipe. I initially thought of making a zucchini cake similar to carrot cake, but after searching online for recipes, I found something better…A Chocolate Zucchini Cake! I found this particular recipe from simplyrecipes.com, which I adapted a little and omitted the nuts.
