These nuts are a great snack to have around the house during the holidays.   They’re great to serve if friends drop by. They’re also perfect as a hostess gift. Everyone likes spiced nuts! These are both sweet and salty, which is one of my favorite combinations of flavors. Enjoy!

High Tea Lemon Cookies

I love lemon and have been searching for a good lemon cookie. I used to love the ones that came in packages of three that I used to sometimes eat in elementary school. Whatever company it was made chocolate chip cookies too. These cookies are not the same, […]

Caramels

Share

I’ve never made caramels before and I was surprised by how easy it was and how delicious they are. They’re much better than store-bought.

In order to make candy, you need a candy thermometer. It’s important that you stop cooking the caramel once it hits 250 degrees F or you will […]

Chocolate and Meringue Angel Pie

This is a really fun and different dessert, and it’s perfect for impressing guests. I love meringue cookies, and this pie sits in a giant meringue shell. The shell is sweet, crunchy and tastes like marshmallows.  The chocolate filling is like a thick custard and not terribly sweet, […]

Charles and I went to our book club meeting on Sunday night, which always includes a potluck dinner, and I was responsible for dessert.  I brought this cheesecake, and in the event that someone didn’t like cheesecake, I brought a batch of these lemon squares as well. Charles snapped a picture of […]

Shortbread Cookies

I made these cookies for a PTA meeting the other night and they were a big hit. The shortbread recipe is nice and easy. I’m always amazed that shortbread cookies don’t have any eggs or baking soda/powder in them. I found that these cookies were delicious both with and without the […]
