Food historians trace the name of hummingbird cake to the Doctor Bird, a swallow-tailed hummingbird that lives only in Jamaica, and a Jamaican banana cake that was its inspiration. It is sweet enough for a hummingbird to love.

For those who can't decide between ice cream or pie, a slice of ice cream pie might be the way to go.  This one is a turtle ice cream pie.

Homemade Ice Cream & Pie Kitchen's first-rate Dutch apple pie is made even better by the layer of caramel on top.
