Cranberry Orange Sorbet

This sweet-tart Cranberry Orange Sorbet is a deliciously refreshing dessert!

Cassata Ricotta (Sponge Cake with Ricotta)

Cassata is a traditional Italian dessert made from sponge cake soaked in liqueur that has been layered with ricotta cheese and candied fruit in a cream filling – plus a decorative marzipan top. Our version today is a much more simplified Cassata Ricotta – and although I first made this recipe over the holidays last […]

Orange Zucchini Cookies

I’ve been dreaming about these delicious Orange Zucchini Cookies ever since last summer!

Orange Poppy Seed Cake

This last month or so I’ve been craving citrus of all kinds – oranges, lemons, and limes! (I’m sure it has something to do with this never-ending winter we’re having here in New England – and citrus to me is synonymous with sunshine!) So I decided to make this super moist Orange Poppy Seed Cake […]

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is a Thanksgiving dinner tradition, dating all the way back to the Pilgrims who took advantage of the abundance of local, fresh cranberries in Plymouth, Massachusetts where they originally settled.  It’s a great sweet-tart complement to the other traditional foods served during Thanksgiving dinner – and a Thanksgiving meal wouldn’t be complete without […]

Orange Almond Biscotti

This recipe for Orange Almond Biscotti is another favorite that we came home with after our honeymoon to the Tuscany region of Italy.  These lightly sweetened biscotti are perfectly flavored with a generous amount of fresh orange zest, and blanched almonds add a bit of crunch as well as almond flavor to the cookie.  These […]

Cranberry Orange Scones

I’ve always had a sort of love-hate thing about scones.  In theory, I love them and really, what’s not to love?  A delicious, airy, lightly sweetened or sometimes savory pastry made with lots of butter.   But most of the time, the scones I’ve eaten have been too dry and too heavy – a total disappointment. And then […]
