French Chocolate Macarons

Share

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’m back!

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. [...]

Chock-Full-of-Chips Drops

Share

These cookies are delicious. They’re stuffed with oatmeal, chocolate chips, white chips and M&Ms. They’re a like a loaded oatmeal cookie with an excellent chip to cookie ratio. The boys loved them. One cookie after a meal will satisfy any sweet-tooth.

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Share

I always have a couple of overripe bananas in my freezer. I keep them for times when I want to make a banana bread or a smoothie. It’s tough to buy a banana that’s perfect for cooking. I find it takes a couple of days of sitting on a kitchen counter to get to the [...]

Cinnamon Streusel Baked French Toast Sticks

Share

I made these French Toast sticks recently on a lazy Saturday morning. The boys LOVED them (well, actually, three out of four did). I found them a little too sweet for my liking. They don’t take too long to make because you bake them on a large rimmed cookie sheet, so you’re able to make [...]

Sugared Pretzel Cookies

Share

These cookies remind me of the Danish butter cookies that come in round tins around the holidays. You usually see them around Christmas time. Those Danish cookies are delectable (one of my son’s vocabulary words this week), and so are these pretzel cookies. I found that they keep for at least 5 days, which is [...]

Spinach Brownies

Share

My cousin Erica posted a picture of these spinach brownies on Facebook last week and I thought they looked delicious. I love having something in the refrigerator that’s quick and healthy for lunch and these are just the ticket. They’re good both warm or cold, straight from the fridge.   The boys wouldn’t go near these [...]

Chocolate Covered Digestive Biscuits

Share

These cookies remind me of British biscuits called HobNobs by McVities.  They’re delicious, but not incredibly sweet.  When you eat one, you’ll crave a cup of tea.

These were easy to make. All you need is a food processor which processes the dough quickly. I found the dough to be a bit crumbly, but I was able [...]

Eggnog Doughnut Muffins

Share

I made these muffins the week before Christmas when we had some eggnog in the house. They were delicious and the boys loved them. The things I like best about these muffins are their nutmeg flavor and the fact that they’re covered in powdered sugar just like a doughnut. These are perfect to serve on [...]

Chocolate Mint Crackle Cookies

Share

I’m a sucker for chocolate and mint, especially around the holidays. I can honestly say that I’ve never met a chocolate mint confection that I didn’t like. These cookies are easy to make and their taste reminds me of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies which I absolutely love.

The trickiest part of making these cookies is [...]
