It’s no secret I like cheesecake and when it comes to no-bake, I am even happier.  This past week I decided it was time for a cheesecake. I like to try out different flavours with ingredients I have in the kitchen. I always have extra blueberries, whether they be fresh or frozen, so I decided to make a blueberry cheesecake instead of our usual smoothies.

Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie topped with whipped cream makes a great dessert for any day of the week. Growing up, it seemed to be a regular dessert on most Sundays, after the usual roast beef dinner. We always had a supply of bananas in our house. If there were some left over at the end of the week, my mom would make her banana cream pie, while preparing our Sunday meal. It became a popular dessert in our home on Sundays and certain holidays throughout the year. If I was asked … Continue reading
