Sugared Pretzel Cookies

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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

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

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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

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

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 [...]

If you’re a fan of chocolate and peanut butter cups, these cookies are for you! They’re very easy to make – as easy as making chocolate chip cookies. I bought a container of mini peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s and they were exactly the right size for this recipe. We all loved these cookies. [...]

Lemonade Cake

I made this cake for dessert last night. It received a double thumbs-up from everyone. It’s nice and lemony and it reminds me of summer. This cake makes me happy.  The cake itself is quite moist and has a nice crumb.  The frosting is both sweet and tart.

Cakes are so easy to make when you [...]

Cinnamon Roll Bites

I made several batches of these little bites this summer. My boys LOVE them. I made the first batch as a treat for the boys. I thought that these would be easier to make than traditional cinnamon rolls. I’m not so sure I was right. Although easy, these are a fairly time-consuming little project to [...]

Chocolate Chip Scones

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This is a delicious scone recipe and it’s flexible in that you can add whatever you want to it. If you don’t like chocolate chips, you can substitute raisins or blueberries or almost anything else that sounds good to you. I’d like to try blueberries and white chocolate chips next.

These are a nice breakfast treat, [...]

Marion Cunningham's Raised Waffles

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I often make waffles for the boys for breakfast. We have a Belgian waffle iron, and I have never been able to make a light and crispy waffle. The boys love the waffles that I make but I have never found them to be crispy enough. When I do try hard to make them crispy, [...]
