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 […]

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

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 […]

Sour Cream Corn Bread

I have made this corn bread several times now. We’ll eat it with dinner, then I’ll serve it again as toast for breakfast. Making cornbread in a loaf pan allows you to easily slice it into toaster-friendly pieces. This recipe is delicious toasted, and spread with butter. This is a very moist cornbread, so you […]

Gnocchi Verde (Spinach and Ricotta Dumplings)

One of the many reasons I love shopping at Trader Joe’s is because of their frozen food section. They have the most interesting frozen vegetables. Two of my favorites are their sliced peppers and cleaned and sliced leeks. They sell 10 oz. bags of frozen, chopped spinach too, which are perfect for this recipe. For […]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Share

I have been making these cookies for a while now and they’re delicious. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of King Arthur flour. I love the addition of oats to a good chocolate chip cookie.

If you cook these according to the instructions, leaving the centers of the cookies looking a little […]

Chocolate Ricotta Muffins

I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve officially become more of an occasional food blogger. With four boys in middle school, my time is devoted to them – bringing them here and there, helping with homework, encouraging them to do their homework rather than fool around, etc. I’m still doing a lot of […]

French Chocolate Macarons

Share

I love looking at macarons in bakeries.  Aren’t they pretty?  They’re typically lined up by color and one looks more perfect than the next.

I have made these numerous times. These cookies are delicious and they impress guests when they’re served. Please don’t confuse macarons with macaroons. Macarons are light cookies made with egg whites and […]
