There’s nothing more crowd-pleasing than a pan of really great homemade brownies—except maybe a pan of really great homemade brownies covered in fudge frosting. Mariann McCormick, cook at Vista Prairie at Monarch Meadows, shares her perfected recipe for Chocolate Fudge Brownies. Bring them to cookouts with friends and family this summer and you’ll go home with a clean pan, guaranteed!
If one of your friends or family members has a garden, chances are they have plenty of rhubarb available. Bake this often overlooked fruit into these cream cheese bars courtesy of Vista Prairie at Goldfinch Estate’s Director of Culinary Services, Mary Sue Ringeisen, and you’ve got yourself a delectable summer dessert.
It’s the one month of the year when the heart is always on our minds. From fighting heart disease for American Heart Month to celebrating the special people in our lives for Valentine’s Day, now it the time to spread the love and what better way than with a sweet treat!
At Vista Prairie Communities, our chefs love cooking and baking with seasonal fruits to add variety to dishes, especially desserts! A chef favorite is pears, when the fruit turns a more golden color and the flesh near the stem is soft under light pressure. Test out this Fresh Pear Cake recipe while the fruit is still in season!
