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, […]

Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

I was responsible for snack at the boys’ soccer game today, so I brought up a bunch of sliced-up oranges and a batch of these muffins. The team made short work of both. I was very impressed with the muffins. They were quite moist and very tasty. They’re […]

Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp

Share

We went to Shelter Island last weekend. It was a long weekend; Monday was Columbus Day. On the way out, we stopped at an apple orchard to pick apples. We arrived late in the afternoon, and unfortunately except for some very small apples, the trees had been picked bare. […]

Moroccan Carrot Dip

I had a bag of baby carrots in the refrigerator that I wanted to use so I fished around on the internet looking for something interesting to do with them.   I remembered having a carrot dip at a friend’s house a couple of years ago, so I googled ‘carrot dip’ and came up with this.   […]

Cinnamon Sugar-Dipped Blueberry Muffins

Share

I made these blueberry muffins the other day and they’re delicious.   They also look really nice; the blueberries are distributed nicely through the muffins, and the sugar topping is very attractive.  The muffins themselves are not too sweet so the sugar topping is a nice addition.  I like the fact that they’re made without […]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Three of our sons had publishing parties at school this week and they both asked me to make my traditional crumb cake.   Everyone loves it, especially the boys. Typically there isn’t any left when I bring one to school, but there were several pieces left from one class so we brought […]

Snickerdoodles

Share

I love cookies, and one of my favorite cookies is a snickerdoodle.    My friend Ken’s mom used to periodically send him a box of homemade snickerdoodles when we were in college, and I was always the first in line for one of them.    As much as I love them, I had never made […]

Cinnamon Muffins

Truth be told, I think these muffins are pretty good, but my boys LOVE them!   They’ll eat them anytime, for breakfast, snack or dessert.   They taste like cinnamon buns, but not as heavy or as sweet.  I may make them another batch tomorrow morning!

The original recipe called for all white flour and double […]

Cinnamon pancakes

Share

My boys LOVE pancakes in the morning so I often make buttermilk pancakes. I make them with whole wheat flour so they’re slightly more healthy than standard pancakes. If you try this recipe and you’re not a whole wheat fan, try half white flour and half whole wheat, or if you […]
