Delicious Lemon Loaf

Share

I love a good lemon bread. It’s great for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. This one is quite moist and bursting with flavor. Starbucks sells something just like it, and although I’ve never tried theirs, I bet this one is better. I have made this recipe several times now and it has always been […]

Gingerbread Biscotti

Share

If you’re a biscotti fan, these are perfect to make for the holidays. Your home is guaranteed to smell wonderful while they’re baking. It’s a perfect winter cookie to make on a freezing cold day like today in NYC. Biscotti are an Italian cookie that is typically dipped into a hot beverage before eating. I […]

Loiusa's Cake

Share

I made this cake the other day on a lark. It was described as a cake that could be served for breakfast so I made it for the boys. As is typical with many new things I make, the boys were skeptical that it was loaded with vegetables. I assured them that it wasn’t, but […]

Cocoa Buttermilk Breakfast Biscuits with Brown Sugar Cinnamon Butter

Share

These are very quick and easy biscuits and if you’re a baker, you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen cabinets. If you don’t happen to have buttermilk, you can make your own. These are incredible right out of the oven. They’re a perfect weekend breakfast treat.

You don’t need an electric mixer for […]

Veggie Nuggets

Share

This is another attempt to get my four picky eaters to eat more vegetables. Did I succeed? Nope!

I have made these several times now because I love them. The boys? Not so much. I think they’re crazy. I’m hoping that when they’re off to college, somehow their palates will miraculously improve.

Instead of using three cups […]

Less Sweet) Sweet Potato Casserole with Butter Pecan Crumble Topping

Share

I love sweet potato casserole at Thanksgiving, but I find that it’s often more like dessert than a side dish. Don’t get me wrong, when a sweet potato casserole is sweet, it’s certainly delicious, but I wanted to try to make a casserole that was a little healthier. Sweet potatoes have a natural sweetness that […]

Sprinkle Cookies

We are in the throes of finals week in our apartment and it has been stressful. Our 9th graders have never had finals before and the thought of needing to know everything that has been taught since September is frightening for them, especially in subjects like biology and history where the minutia can be overwhelming.

Veggie Balls

Although the photo doesn’t do it justice, this is one of my new favorite recipes. Because my husband and I were the only ones in the family to eat these, and the recipe makes a generous quantity, we ate them for several days in a row and I didn’t get sick of them at all. […]

Lemon White Chocolate Bars

Share

My lemon-loving son saw a picture of these bars on my computer – I think I had a Pinterest page open – and he begged me to make them. He is a lemon fanatic as long as there is no pulp anywhere to be found in the recipe. When he saw that this was made […]

Chocolate Ganache Cake

Share

I made this cake for a dinner party we were supposed to have on Saturday night. I made the cake itself on Friday, wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap and stored it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately the dinner party didn’t happen because one of my dear friends, and one of our guests that night, had […]
