Creamy Carrot Cake Balls


Happy Halloween!

In the spirit of Halloween I added eyes to my creamy carrot cake balls to create mummies (or possibly monsters). Despite the ghoulish costume these bite size carrot cakes are wearing, these little treats are not limited to Halloween. The fresh raw carrots and the dried pineapple give a pop of flavor that is enhanced by the cream cheese and spices.

Apple Cider and Clementine Syllabub

For many years now I have turned to this Lemon Syllabub for a quick and elegant dessert when entertaining guests. It is bright, refreshing, and can be made ahead of time, perfect for a summer evening. Of course it isn't summer anymore. We have falling leaves, pumpkins, halloween decorations, and occasionally a chill in the air (just not today, today we were pushing 80 and stripping off our long sleeves and sweaters just when we thought the cool weather would finally stick). As I was doing my research for this article I came across a wikipedia page that said of syllabub "It is reputedly most traditionally made by the milkmaid milking the cow directly into a jug of cider." Ah ha! Apple cider is perfect fall weather fare. So today in honor of the milkmaid and her cider I give you my version of a Fall Syllabub.

I could have used yogurt except that I have been so busy making desserts and treats that making homemade yogurt keeps getting pushed aside. I looked at making a chia pudding, but since they generally soak overnight and as I was running behind I kept looking.

Simple Cinnamon Berry Compote

Today I have a guest post! It is my Dad, Granddad to my kiddos, and Dennis Green to the rest of the world. Growing up my Dad loved to take over in the kitchen to make special breakfasts and special treats (often involving ice cream or chocolate and peanut butter), today is no different. In order to give me a little break he sent me one of his tried and true quick dessert recipes. I expected just a simple ingredient list with a few directions, but he went the extra mile and created a whole article for me (Thanks Dad!). So without further blathering from me, here it is.

Frozen Blueberries and Fresh Cream

I would say that the majority of the treats I have posted for this 31 day challenge have been simple. Today's is as basic as it comes, a dessert my family has enjoyed for years (probably at least the last 20 years), with just two ingredients (I add a third ingredient but it is completely optional).
