Super Bowl Whoopie Pies

Since Whoopie Pies are one of the best inventions EVER, I decided that they would make a great dessert for the Super Bowl Party. So I just made chocolate whoopee pies and made the frosting in the navy blue and green of the Seahawks for between the cookies. I just ate 3 of them. Hopefully … Continue reading

Old Fashioned Whoopie Pies

I began making these back in the late 70’s. When Jason, my oldest son went off to A & M, I remember sending a shoebox full of these to him. Apparently lots of moms did that and they came to be known as shoebox cookies. This recipe came from a niece, who use to ask me … Continue reading

Glazed Apple-Maple Blondies

That sounds so good that it should become a OPI color. But until then, these blondies will help us slide into the Fall Season with a new appreciation for Apples. Taken from the Sept-Oct issue of TOH, these will certainly get us in the mood for pulling out the boxes in the garage marked “Fall” … Continue reading

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars

I felt that after posting the recipe for Possum I had better redeem myself and what better way to do that than with a chocolate dessert. There were several inquiries as to if that was a real recipe. Yes, it was a real recipe out of Randy’s family cookbook from his great grandmothers family. Because … Continue reading
