This is a really interesting coconut bread that looks like it might be similar to a banana bread, but it isn’t. It has a much coarser crumb, and it’s not as sweet as a typical banana bread. I like this bread best toasted or warm with butter. It would be nice with a little confectioner’s [...]
One of my sons LOVES Wheat Thins. He would eat a whole box in a sitting if we let him. As store-bought snacks go, they’re not terribly unhealthy, but I believe that everything is healthier when you make it yourself. Wheat Thins have high fructose corn syrup in them as well as monoglycerides. I hate [...]
Candied bacon. Can you imagine anything better? I’ve made this three times in the last month. It’s delicious, and simple too.
I have tried this with both thick-cut bacon and thinner bacon, and although I enjoyed the thick-cut, the thin is my preference. Watch the bacon while it’s cooking, because it can go from golden [...]
I love nuts, and especially nuts that are glazed with something. This Sugar Spiced Nuts recipe is one of my favorites. I make them all the time. I bring them to family holiday dinners and they’re a huge hit.
I was visiting the Smitten Kitchen site recently and found this granola-crusted nut recipe. They looked interesting, [...]
I love homemade caramels. The kind they sometimes give you after dinner at a fancy restaurant.
I have only ever made these before, and they’re delicious, but these apple cider caramels are incredible. I love the concentrated apple flavor, and the slight saltiness. I truly have never tasted anything like them. I’d love it if a [...]
This is a great recipe to try if you’re looking for a healthy snack, and if you have some apples and time on your hands. These chips take 3 – 4 hours to bake at a really low temperature. They’re incredibly tasty when they’re done, and if you can slice them very thinly on a [...]
I have quite a few friends who are vegetarian/vegan. At a recent dinner with some of my college buddies, I learned about cashew cheese which sounded delicious. My friends Mike and Wendy assured me that I’d easily find a recipe online. I found a recipe months ago, but I was slow to make it [...]
I mentioned in my last post how much I loved refrigerator oatmeal, and I wasn’t kidding. I have two batches of this pumpkin spice oatmeal marinating in my refrigerator right now. Tomorrow’s breakfast is going to be good!
In the fall, I make these pumpkin muffins quite a bit for the boys. When I first made [...]
I made this as an appetizer yesterday for our dinner guests. I finally received some tomatillos from the CSA (not too many were distributed this year) and this seemed like a perfect way to use them. This salsa has a nice lingering burn to it, but it wasn’t too hot. The heat will depend upon [...]
I have been receiving a LOT of squash from my CSA, so you’re going to see quite a few new squash recipes in the upcoming days.
I can honestly say that this is the best zucchini bread that I have ever had. It’s incredibly moist and flavorful. I almost made it with chocolate chips instead of [...]
