No-Bake Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Share

I’m always on the hunt for healthy snacks for myself and for the boys. I’ve been making a variety of different no-bake energy bites recently, with various healthy ingredients, but these are one of my favorites. My husband describes them as being virtuous, which means he doesn’t really like them, but he’ll eat them […]

Share

I’ve made lots of blueberry muffins over the years, but this is my current go-to recipe. I found it this summer when blueberries were plentiful, made it least a half dozen times over the course of a month or so, and keep using it. I have a batch frozen in the freezer right now […]

Easy Quiche Florentine

This is definitely the easiest quiche I have ever made, and it’s really delicious. The ingredients can be thrown together in under 15 minutes.  I had the quiche ready to bake before my oven preheated. I have made this quiche will all kinds of cheese. I use whatever I have on hand. It’s delicious with […]

Pear Crisp with Vanilla Brown Butter

Share

I love a good pear or apple crisp in the winter. Warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it’s fantastic. This crisp has a fantastic topping. My usual toppings have a base of flour, butter, sugar and sometimes oats. This streusel topping is loaded with ground almonds and it’s so delicious! Because […]

Blueberry Streusel Bars with Lemon-Cream Filling

Share

These bars are both out-of-this-world, and award-winning! My son recently entered a baking competition at his high school during Spirit Week, and these bars took first place. They are loaded with flavor and not overly sweet, a nice combination of blueberry and lemon. Blueberry and lemon is one of my favorite fruit combinations. If […]

Having made it several times now, it’s being officially added to my rotation of quick breads. It’s not overly sweet, and it’s not overly chocolatey either, with just 1/3 cup of chocolate. […]

Delicious Lemon Loaf

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 […]

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

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 […]

No Bake Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Share

I am still on a quest to find healthy things for the boys to eat. They are all in high school now, three sophomores and a freshman, and although their eating habits have gotten infinitesimally better, and I mean infinitesimally, they are still not great. Until they are off to college, I will continue to […]
