Made with Oranges

Desserts and Other Sweet Treats

Oranges have always had a special place in my life. It started with growing up in Florida in the late 60's. My father was a traveling salesman and we'd travel with him whenever we could. It was a special treat getting to stop at a roadside fruit stand for one of those magnificent golden treats. I got to drink juice directly from the orange with a Citra Sipper. ​Even today, each time I go back to Florida I have to get that first sip of orange juice as I cross the border at the Florida Welcome Center.

I hope you enjoy these recipes made with oranges.

    I took this Easy Orange Cake to a teacher's appreciation luncheon. I was told that several of the teachers requested the recipe. It was so good that even the parent running the luncheon made the cake as soon as I gave her the recipe.
