Celery Soup

Share

I periodically buy celery for specific recipes and never use all of it. I was speaking to my sisters, who said that they make ‘ants on a log’ with their extra celery, but that didn’t sound too appealing to me, so I decided to use my extra celery to make celery soup, and I […]

Peanut Butter Brownies

Share

These brownies were a big hit in our house. If you decide to try them, I have a few tips. First, make sure you have marshmallows available, and not rock-hard ones. I tried to use some from a bag that had been opened a couple of months ago, and it was a disaster. Definitely […]

Ch-ch-ch-chia!

Excellent Blondies

There’s not much to say about these other than I think they’re the best blondies I’ve ever made. Hands down. The combination of the toasted pecans and white chocolate (and lots of vanilla) make these excellent. If you’re a blondie fan, try these. This is now my go-to blondie recipe.Although I think these are […]

If you are a pie crust fan, these little cookies are for you. They’re delicate, not too sweet and perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea or coffee. Although delicious, this particular recipe is time-consuming because the dough has to rest and chill several times before you can bake it.I will […]

I haven’t posted too many Instant Pot recipes on this blog, but I hope to post more in the near future. This soup is fairly easy to make. I love that you can add the ingredients to the Instant Pot, and after you sauté the onions and garlic, you can add everything else, set the […]
