My Favorite Homemade Pecan Pesto with Gluten Free Brown Rice Noodles


This Pesto Pasta is easy to make, good for you and on top of that, the flavor is fabulous! I like to use Pecans versus the traditional Pine Nuts (which I find to be bland and boring).  I’ve also made Pesto with Walnuts but they can make the Pesto bitter.  Try the Pecans and see what you think.  Follow my recipe to a tee and it will turn out perfect every time!  Tried, tested and true!

In my upcoming Book “PASSION My Journey though Food” I highlight this recipe along with ideas of how and what to serve it with. Be looking for that late Summer, Early Fall.

Dreamy, Melt in Your Mouth, Lemon Semi Fredo


My friend Heidi turned me on to Lemon Semi Fredo over 10 years ago.  We have both been making it ever since.  She brought it to our annual Christmas Wine Pairing Party one year and everyone when nuts over it…so the next year, I asked her to bring it again…

To describe it; it is dreamy, smooth, melt in your mouth amazing…ask anyone who’s tasted it.  I describe it as a cross between Hollandaise, Creme Brûlé and Custard. It is a Frozen Dessert and we like to top ours with Freshly Cut, In-Season Berries (no sugar needed if they’re already sweet). The texture of it in your mouth is like I said, dreamy and it compares to nothing else I’ve ever had before.

The presentation you see here was from a few weeks ago at a ladies Tropical Party I hosted.  My friend Ione came 2 days early to help me and I had her make this luscious Dessert and another friend Beth who also helped was the one that set up the tray for serving.  What a great team we make, these two women are amazing!
