Re:Blueberry-Lime Pound Cake

I have made this cake for 2 occasions now and both times it was a hit. I have been asked for this recipe by a number of friends! For the lime glaze....I find it a bit too runny so I add more icing sugar to the lime juice. Delish!

Re:Free-Form Pear Tarts with Almond & Cinnamon

I made these tarts tonight for dinner guests. As the previous reviewer mentioned...the tarts opened up during the baking. I took them out of the oven (before they were finished baking) and put 4 toothpicks in each tart so as to keep the 4 points points from falling open. This seemed to work. In the end they were really good served with frozen vanilla yogurt. I will definitely make these again!

Re:Ginger Cake Trifles with Caramelized Apples, Cranberries & Whipped Cream

A really great dessert! It was delicious however a bit too dry. i would double the fruit mixture as that would have moistened the cake. Overall very good and something different!

Re:Crispy Smashed Roasted Potato Recipe

This has become a favorite side dish of mine! My husband, family and friends also love this potato dish. Different from the usual potato dishes and absolutely delicious. Easy to prepare and this dish can be prepared ahead...just pop them in the oven 30 minutes before serving. Definitely a keeper!
