Strawberry Bar Cookies

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.

Rodelle Baking Cocoa

Last year i discovered this wonderful cocoa, so rich and dark in flavor that it has replaced my regular cocoa in almost every recipe! This year it was at Costco for $6.99 /25 oz bag so i bought enough bags to last me until i go to a nursing home or Jesus returns (personally i … Continue reading

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

Cappuccino Crinkles

Looking for a new cookie recipe, I came across this one in Better Homes & Gardens Bars & Cookies recipe book.  Since I didn’t have any yogurt, I substituted sour cream. What I can tell you is that Randy and I ate so many of them as they cane out of the oven that I … Continue reading

A Different Type of Christmas Carol

It’s the dream of every (well almost every) grandmother to have a houseful of family over Christmas, and I am no exception.
