Ultranutty Pecan Bars

Share

I made these for Thanksgiving this year and they were a big hit. They are like pecan pie without all of the gooey, sweet filling. They’re heavy on the pecans and light on the filling, baked on a shortbread crust. If you’re a pecan lover, this recipe is for you.Just before I started […]

Our vegetarian son is slowly but surely working his magic on us, so we’re eating more vegetarian dishes now than we ever have before. We haven’t completely given up meat, […]

“Chorizo” Tacos

Share

I have made these tacos quite a few times now. They’re part of our regular dinner rotation. My vegetarian son LOVES them, and I have to say that I do too. I don’t even notice that they’re meatless. The tofu, when shredded and browned, is somewhat similar to ground meat, and once it’s covered in […]

The BEST Chocolate Cake

Share

I can safely say that this is the best chocolate cake I have ever made. It is really moist, even several days after it’s made, and it’s incredibly chocolatey. I have made a number of cakes that have “essence of chocolate’, as my grandmother used to say, meaning it barely had any real chocolate taste […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I wouldn’t usually be posting a recipe with raisins in it, because as a rule, I don’t love raisins, or mushrooms for that matter. That said, we have a neighbor, who is basically like family, that LOVES oatmeal raisin cookies. He recently had surgery, so I made these for him. Two of the six of […]
