Apple Crisp

Share

I have made a number of different apple crisps over the years, and this is by far my favorite. It’s simple, with no funny additions like Ina Garten’s lemon and orange zest or Al Roker’s Chinese 5-spice powder. It’s basically apples with cinnamon, sugar, nuts and butter. So simple, yet so delicious.

I don’t think you […]

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 […]

Mini Churros

Share

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it snowed almost all day! We have had quite a winter here in NYC. I thought for sure our snowstorms were over for the year, but Mother Nature had other ideas. We probably got a good 4″ when all was said and done. The city looked beautiful […]

Cinnamon Roll Bites

Share

 

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 […]

Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

Share

Made these cinnamon roll biscuits for breakfast. The boys love biscuits and they love cinnamon rolls, and these are a great combination. The boys loved them. One gave them a score of 21 on a scale of 1-10 and another gave them a score of 100. Same scale. Clearly math is not their strong suit. […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Chocolate Cinnamon Swirl

Share

 

I’m a big fan of crumb cake for breakfast. My favorite part is the crumb topping, but the cake part isn’t bad either. I saw this recipe and was grabbed by the title. Anything with a chocolate cinnamon swirl is right up my alley.

This coffee cake reminded me of something that you’d buy at Starbucks. […]

Quick Cinnamon Buns with Buttermilk Icing

Share

I’m a sweets person at heart. I try so hard to cook healthy meals, but I’m perpetually drawn to sweet baked treats like these. I made these the other day for the boys’ breakfast and each boy gave them a double thumbs up.

These cinnamon rolls are very easy to make. Unlike most cinnamon roll recipes, […]

Zvi's Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Share

Our boys LOVE to eat Pepperidge Farm’s Cinnamon Swirl bread. They’d eat it all the time if we let them. I don’t eat it too much, but I must admit that it’s great toasted with butter. It also makes your kitchen smell great as it’s toasting.

Since baking’s my thing, when I came across a recipe […]

Cinnamon Vanilla Granola

Share

My sister Gail posted a link on Facebook a couple of days ago that talked about things that you should never buy again because you should be making them at home. Granola was one of them. I’ve been wanting to try to make granola for a while now, but I didn’t get around to trying […]

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Share

I have developed a taste for biscotti over the last couple of years. I never loved biscotti as a child, perhaps because all the biscotti that I tried had nuts in them, and nuts in things weren’t my favorite back then. It’s funny – although I really like nuts in things now, […]
