Banana Toffee Cream

This is a very light dessert to make.  Quick and easy.  You can eat it right after you make it, but better after it sits in the frig for a while and gets colder.

  • 1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped
  • 1/2 cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips
  • 1 large ripe banana, sliced (but not too ripe)

Combine whipped cream, toffee chips and banana.  Spoon into parfait glasses or dishes. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Yield:  2 servings

Hot Fudge Sauce

This is so easy to make and so yummy!

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick salted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla, opt.

In medium saucepan, gently whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar.  Whisk in the cream, then turn the heat to medium and whisk it as it warms up.  When the mixture starts to heat up, add the butter and stir it in to melt.  Then when the mixture is nice and hot, add the vanilla and stir it to combine.  Let the sauce cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer it to a mason jar.  Store it in the fridge (it will become solid as it cools).

To serve, scoop out the amount you need and place it in a microwave-safe bowl.  Heat it for 20 seconds, then stir and heat for another 10 seconds or until the sauce is warm.

Serves 8.

Dixie’s Boiled Dinner

This is my take on “New England Boiled Dinner”.  Three ingredients, put it all in a pot, cover with water and boil until done.  Serve with butter, salt and pepper to put on potatoes and cabbage.

  • Kielbasa, cut into large pieces
  • Cabbage, cut into large chunks
  • Red potatoes, peeled

Fix enough for however many you are serving.  Delicious for leftovers also.

This is a good pie for the diabetic or for someone watching their weight.  You wouldn’t know that there was no sugar or artificial sweetener in it.  It is really yummy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl whisk together cornstarch, cinnamon, and 1/3 cup of the apple juice concentrate.  Set aside.

Spoon apple mixture into pastry-lined pie plate.  Cover with top crust.  Seal and flute edges.  Cut steam vents in top.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
