I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for the boys to eat. As snack foods go, these bars aren’t terrible. They’re still a sweet snack, but they’re preservative free, unlike many of the granola bars that you buy at the supermarket. Three out of the four boys liked these. My husband and I liked […]
My boys LOVE this recipe. Well, three out of four do. The other one likes these, but doesn’t go crazy over them. One of my sons asks me to make these all the time. The boys can’t decide if they like them dipped in dark or white chocolate better. These are reminiscent of s’mores, with […]
I have been making these cookies for a while now and they’re delicious. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of King Arthur flour. I love the addition of oats to a good chocolate chip cookie.

As I’ve often found, sometimes the simplest recipes are the […]
I love looking at macarons in bakeries. Aren’t they pretty? They’re typically lined up by color and one looks more perfect than the next.
I have made these numerous times. These cookies are delicious and they impress guests when they’re served. Please don’t confuse macarons with macaroons. Macarons are light cookies made with egg whites and […]
Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies
I know that I haven’t posted for a while. Things have been busy for the past couple of months. Great, but busy. We bought and moved into a new house. We’re really excited about it. Even though we don’t have a lot of furniture yet, it truly feels like home. […]
