Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Share

This recipe comes from a bookmark that I’ve had kicking around for a while. When I received a box of grapefruit as a gift, and we weren’t eating them fast enough (although they keep well for a while in the refrigerator), I knew it was time to try this recipe.

One of my sons loved this […]

Oatmeal Scotchies

Share

This recipe is an old favorite of mine. I remember it fondly from my childhood. The recipe was on the back of the butterscotch chips bag. They’re a delicious, chewy oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips.

Three out of four of my boys love these. One claims he doesn’t like butterscotch, so he won’t go near them. […]

Chocolate Babka

Share

This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It’s a two-day process that involves yeast, a fair amount of hands-on time, a stand mixer, and lots of rising. Mine took much longer to rise than the directions indicated, but in the end, I had two beautiful loaves chocolate babka. My boys can’t get enough […]

Butterscotch-Bourbon Blondies

Share

I made these the other day to bring to a PTA meeting and got great feedback about them. I must warn you that they taste a little boozy. You can definitely taste the bourbon. Not all of it burns off in the baking. I really liked the flavor. This is definitely an adult dessert due […]

I usually post recipes that I find to be fairly easy to make. It’s not that these cookies aren’t easy to make, but be warned, they take a little time because you can only make a couple at a time. Each one has […]

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

My husband loved these chocolate crinkle cookies. Because they’re made with chopped chocolate, cocoa powder and espresso powder, they have a really rich, chocolaty flavor. I have made cookies like these before, and have noticed that as time passes, the powdered sugar hasn’t stayed a bright white. It has faded into the cookies. With these […]

Soft Snickerdoodles

Share

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies at this time of year.   Not sure why I associate them with the fall, but I do. Maybe it’s the cinnamon.

If you don’t know what a snickerdoodle is, it’s like a soft sugar cookie rolled in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. So simple, but so good. The […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Meringues

Meringues are one of my favorite cookies. I can eat them by the fistful. I love that they’re light and airy and are perfect if you want just a little something to satisfy a sweet-tooth.

This is a recipe that you need to start well in advance of when you need them. It doesn’t take long […]

Texas Sheet Cake

Share

This is a delicious cake that is easy to throw together, and if you like to bake, there’s a good chance that you’ll have all of the ingredients on hand. I made this cake the other night for dessert, and it was very good, warm, out of the oven. The frosting was soft and slightly […]
