After living in Nashville for 3 months making tons of progress with his music education non-profit, my boyfriend finally came home. I wanted to make him something extra special for his homecoming. He loves raspberries and I love chocolate. Luckily the two taste amazing together! This Chocolate Ganache Tart with Fresh Raspberries is simple, elegant, and oh so chocolatey.

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 was at the farmer’s market last week in Nashville and there are still quite a few peaches at the farm stands. I thought I would include this recipe on my blog to inspire someone to use up the last of the season’s fresh peaches.
