    For some reason I've never cared for mangoes, but I do love peaches and pears. That sound like a nice combination to me. Maybe I'll try making a peach and pear tart one of these days.

    I saw a recipe the other day that I want to try making. Actually, a few of them. I don't have what I need to make them here, though, so I'll have to wait until I get to the store. If I make them, I'll post here and share the recipes :).

    I don't think I've ever eaten a mango. I'm not big on fruit. I do like mango nectar, however.

    A peach and pear tart seems to be a kind of delicious pastry stuff too! Well, I will surely wait for your recipe :)

    I finally found my mom's butter cookie recipe, so I wanted to share it with y'all. I made a batch the other day.

    Best Butter Cookies

    1 stick of butter or margarine

    1/2 cup solid white shortening (Crisco or similar)

    1 cup sugar

    1 egg

    2 cups flour

    Combine all ingredients in order given. Drop by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheets. Flatten and shape with a fork dipped in water.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until light brown around edges.

    Makes 24-28, depending on how large you make them. I usually make mine bigger, so end up with a few dozen. They're delicious, a bit crumbly like shortbread.

    I made another batch of ricotta yesterday. I knew I'd be using this batch for dessert, so I added a little pineapple juice in with the lemon juice I used to curdle the hot milk. How I use it will be determined by how I'm feeling, but if I feel better tomorrow, I might try making a small tart or cheesecake. Otherwise, I'll eat it with pineapple chunks.

    Sometimes I get enough satisfaction from looking at a recipe and pictures of the dessert, that I don't even have to make and eat it. I'm not sure that's the case with this recipe, though, because this cake looks amazing. I can see how moist it is from the picture. I'm not a huge chocoholic, unlike most in my family, but occasionally, I will get a craving for chocolate. I might have to try making this, just to see how delicious it turns out. http://www.lifesambrosia.com/2015/01/black-and-white-chocolate-cake-recipe.html black and white chocolate cake.jpg
