Can we take a moment to appreciate how Amazing Spring Desserts are? Who doesn’t love a good dessert that celebrates the arrival of warmer weather and blooming flowers?
From fruity tarts to light and fluffy cakes, spring desserts make your taste buds sing.
And let’s remember the seasonal produce – juicy strawberries, tangy rhubarb, and sweet peaches all appear in some of the best spring desserts.
I can’t get enough lemon bars this time of year. The tartness of the lemon filling and the buttery shortbread crust is just perfection.
And don’t even get me started on Easter treats – it’s the quintessential spring dessert in my book.
So, whether you’re hosting a springtime soirée or want to treat yourself to something sweet, give one of these fantastic spring desserts a try. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 109
It’s finally that time of the year again! Spring is here, and I couldn’t be happier!
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming. It’s like the whole world is coming back to life after a long, dreary winter.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to ditch my winter coat and break out my shorts and flip-flops. I’m looking forward to spending more time outside, whether going for a walk, having a picnic, or just soaking up some sun.
And let’s not forget about all the fun holidays and events that come with spring – Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and so much more.
I can’t wait to spend time with family and friends, eat delicious food, and enjoy the beautiful weather.
So here’s to a happy spring filled with warmth, joy, and plenty of good times. Cheers!
Personal Note from Janine
The other day, I stumbled upon a delightful photo of my son’s second birthday, capturing him blowing out the candles on his cake. This image triggered a flood of memories, including the fact that I had actually crafted an adorable train cake for the occasion.
Back then, I didn’t have access to the fancy-shaped cake molds that are popular today.
Instead, I used this fun cake book that offered numerous creative ideas. Armed with this inspiration, I painstakingly cut out and decorated each component of the train cake using frosting and candies.
I recall how time-consuming the process was, and wonder now how I ever found the time to create such a cute birthday cake while also keeping up with my busy toddler.
Looking back, I’m happy I didn’t have a blog back then so I could enjoy every moment with my kids. We traveled around the world twice to adopt them and I loved every moment of their childhood!
Wishing you a delightful weekend filled with lovely moments spent with your family!

This Week’s Tip – Egg Substitute
Did you know that some baking recipes can use seltzer water instead of eggs?
Yeah, it’s true! Seltzer water, also called sparkling water or carbonated water, can act as a leavening agent and help create air pockets in your batter or dough. This can make your baked goods lighter and fluffier.
But here’s the catch: seltzer water doesn’t have the same binding properties as eggs. So if you’re making something like custards, meringues, or soufflés, you can’t use seltzer water instead of eggs.
If you use seltzer water as an egg substitute, it’s best to do it in recipes that don’t call for many eggs, like pancakes, waffles, or muffins. You can substitute 1/4 cup of seltzer water for each egg, but keep in mind that it might change the flavor and texture of your baked goods. So trying it out on a small batch before you make a whole recipe is always a good idea.
I have tried it on one of my cookie recipes and I seriously couldn’t tell the difference! What a great option if you can’t tolerate eggs!
Latest Obsession – Whole Peach Pie Recipe
I came across a unique recipe on our Amazon Echo Dot. To give some context, our son works for Amazon gave us the Echo Dot as a holiday gift. One of its features is the ability to display content on its screen, and that’s how I discovered this intriguing peach dessert recipe.
Although I’m eager to try it out, peaches are not in season, so I’m patiently waiting for summer to arrive. However, I’m considering the possibility of using a different fruit that is readily available in the store so that I can make the recipe.
Who knows if I’ll create something new!
