Chocolate Sugar Cookies

A dear friend gave me this recipe last week after tasting them at her house. She followed the recipe and they were delicious. However, I wanted to make them for kids using fall themed sprinkles on the outside without the cayenne, so I just deleted it and the cinnamon….I have eaten about 10 of them. … Continue reading

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Biscotti

This morning, I was looking for another recipe to take to a gathering this afternoon. Rodelle Brownies (they are already posted on the blog) was already in the oven to take, but I wanted something else and since we received a little rain and dark skies this morning, it seemed appropriate that something pumpkin should … Continue reading

Apple Pie Oatmeal Cups

A few weeks ago I saw these wonderful looking apple pie cups on Facebook and knew right then that I had to have one. As I didn’t have fresh apples in the house and it was still so hot outside that the thought of going outside at 3 p.m. was not enticing. But I did … Continue reading

This month is flying by. We have had friends from California visiting and so much going on that I have really been in a baking mood.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

Something else to get addicted to, as if I didn’t have enough already. Thank you Patti for sharing with us and for introducing me to something else that I will now have to keep locked up, after making it. This will be so great to have on hand for all the company that will be … Continue reading

Rodelle Gooey Fudge Brownies

If you are looking for a deep, rich brownie that really steps it up a notch or 5 from box brownies, this is your brownie. I made these the other day for an open house and they were a hit. Of course, the fudge frosting that was swirled on top probably added a couple of … Continue reading

Gooey Monster Cookies

Yesterday I went to a cooking class and learned such cute and delicious, but easy recipes to use for Halloween. I have made cookies from a cake mix before but really didn’t  like them too much, UNTIL NOW! The cream cheese does the trick. The instructor teaching us these cute little “tricks” used Candy eyeballs … Continue reading
