Sparkling Jell-O Mold

Jell-O molds can be as clever and sophisticated as you can imagine. This mold shuns dyes and artificial flavorings to focus on booze and fruit, geling prosecco with white cranberry juice, a bit of sugar and raspberries for a light and refreshing treat. And honestly, what better way to kick off the New Year than with booze & fruit? More

Hummingbird Cake

Since appearing in Southern Living magazine in February 1978 as the recipe of a Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, North Carolina, Hummingbird Cake has become the magazine's most requested recipe of all time. While this beloved Southern classic is chock full o' goodies like bananas, pineapple, and pecans, it's not a fussy to prepare, making it a favorite for picnics and barbecues. More

Pluma Moos (Fresh Fruit Mousse)

With Pluma Moos, the ingredients are simple: fruit, sugar, spices, vanilla, and water— and there's ample room for variation. Use fresh produce for the market, frozen fruit or a mix. Note, the fruit with large seeds, like blackberries, will require additional time for straining. More

Poached Pears

Poached pears make a great dessert on their own, but my favorite use for them is as an ingredient in baked goods. Poaching the pears before using them in quick breads, muffins, cakes, and pies gives them vibrant, spicy flavor and ensures that they won't be undercooked or dried out. Feel free to customize the spice combination that you use to your taste. More
