Sour Cream Corn Bread

Share

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)

Share

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

Share

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 […]

Cinnamon Streusel Baked French Toast Sticks

Share

I made these French Toast sticks recently on a lazy Saturday morning. The boys LOVED them (well, actually, three out of four did). I found them a little too sweet for my liking. They don’t take too long to make because you bake them on a large rimmed cookie sheet, so you’re able to make […]

Chocolate Nudges

Share

Every couple of years I am tempted by a dessert recipe that contains ground pistachio nuts. I LOVE pistachios and I love desserts. The combination is always surprising to me. It’s never quite what I expect. These cookies remind me of chocolate cookies sold at Italian bakeries. I served them to a couple of my […]

Sugared Pretzel Cookies

Share

These cookies remind me of the Danish butter cookies that come in round tins around the holidays. You usually see them around Christmas time. Those Danish cookies are delectable (one of my son’s vocabulary words this week), and so are these pretzel cookies. I found that they keep for at least 5 days, which is […]

Spinach Brownies

Share

My cousin Erica posted a picture of these spinach brownies on Facebook last week and I thought they looked delicious. I love having something in the refrigerator that’s quick and healthy for lunch and these are just the ticket. They’re good both warm or cold, straight from the fridge.   The boys wouldn’t go near these […]

Lemonade Cake

Share

I made this cake for dessert last night. It received a double thumbs-up from everyone. It’s nice and lemony and it reminds me of summer. This cake makes me happy.  The cake itself is quite moist and has a nice crumb.  The frosting is both sweet and tart.

Cakes are so easy to make when you […]
