Luci’s Country Apple Tart

From Pride of a Hunter, The Seekers, Book 4

The first time I made this recipe I misread two teaspoons of lemon juice as two tablespoons, and I was worried about the results. But the extra tartness added something extra, and I’ve made it with the extra lemon since.

1 lemon 1 pound tart apples […]

Francine’s Almond Coffeecake

From A Rose at Midnight

My family complains that I never make the same recipe twice. What can I say, I like to fiddle. I’ve made this recipe with dried cranberries or dried cherries in place of the raisins or changed the almond extract to lemon extract, the cinnamon to nutmeg, and the raisins to […]

Olivia’s Chocolate Orange Snack Cake

From Heart of a Hunter, The Seekers, Book 1

Brooke’s Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

From Alyssa Again

These are so easy to make and so impressive to look at. The good part is that, if you use dark chocolate, the combination of chocolate and strawberries makes this a treat that’s chock full of antioxidants. At least that’s how I rationalize making them so […]

Cathlynn’s Media Muffins

From Blackmailed Bride Also see Valentin’s Pizza from Blackmailed Bride

Grady’s Coconut Cake

From One Texas Night

My kids learned early that the one sure way of having cookies and cakes around was to bake them themselves. This is one of their favorite recipes for a quick and tasty cake.
