These raspberry lemonade tartlets are perfect for Mother's Day or any other spring brunch. The beautiful pink color is reminiscent of flowers and the shade of pink can be adjusted by changing the ratio of raspberry juice and lemon juice.

Almond Date Energy Bars

Especially when cut into hearts, these chocolate coconut almond date energy bars make a nice little gift for your Valentine. And because I feel like we have been living in a sweets-saturated world since Halloween they are a welcome healthy Valentine's Day treat.

Coconut Pecan Frosting

Thursday, January 12, 2012


This rich, gooey, caramel-like frosting is arguably the best part of a German chocolate cake. The chewiness of the shredded coconut paired with the crunch of the pecans and the sweetness of the evaporated milk makes for a frosting and filling that can be eaten by the spoonful.

Caramel Apples

With the arrival of fall, it's time for caramel apples. They are easy to make and everyone in the family can get involved. Leave them plain or dip them in chopped Heath toffee bar, chopped peanuts, or any other sweet of your choice.

Kale Wraps

These kale wraps are one of the most interesting (and good!) things I've had and they are definitely a conversation piece for a party. As you eat the kale wrap, you get a burst of each of the flavors: ginger, lime, toasted coconut, peanuts, red onion and tamarind sauce. I didn't even notice that I was eating kale.

For every banana split recipe submitted by a Featured Publisher, Foodbuzz will donate $50 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (up to $5,000). What a great excuse to make a banana split! In my rendition of this classic sundae, a chocolate- and coconut-covered banana sandwiches three scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, Heath toffee chocolate sauce, shredded coconut, whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

French Strawberry Glace Pie

Monday, May 31, 2010


This recipe comes from my Great Aunt Gladys, and my mom has been making it since before I was born. I love the fact that it is filled with fresh, uncooked strawberries. My aunt traditionally made it with an easy coconut pie crust but I like to use my Coconut Macaroon Tartlet Shells for a chewier (and butter-less) crust.
