Pumpkin Donut Cheesecake Jars

Raise your hand if you get swept away with pumpkin fever every fall! The pumpkin craze finally reached the shores of the UK last autumn with the arrival of the pumpkin spice latte but those of us in the know knew where to find canned pumpkin years ago. During the pumpkin shortage of 2011 I bought and carried about 10 cans of pumpkin straight across London for fear of being without pumpkin pie.

Julia Child Chocolate Almond Cake'

Better late than never! One month late I finally made my Julia Child inspired dessert. The cupcake book club will be back on track next week. I can’t wait to get back into the habit of reading again.

Oreo Banana Pudding

After I read Miracle Pie I couldn’t stop thinking about banana cream pie! The main character in the novel, Katie, has weird pie related premonitions and can accurately make a pie to suit occasions before the event happens. The pies are never wrong. I couldn’t resist making a pie when I finished the book.
