This triple chocolate brownie recipe works up really fast. 30 minutes tops! It’s really no harder than box mix, but it tastes SO MUCH better than anything you’re going to find in a box. It’s dark, rich, chewy, gooey and it doesn’t use a block or two of chocolate, so you can convince yourself it’s “healthy.” Every baker needs a good,… Read More

How much do I love chocolate? Let me count the ways. In fact, as much as I love my various berry pies, chocolate pudding pie might be my favorite. It’s pudding in a pie crust and topped with whipped cream. What’s not to love? I’ll take you from start to finish making this pie from scratch, but you can go… Read More

When I first discovered that you could use sourdough to make things other than bread I was seriously surprised! Since then I have made several things with sourdough including muffins and tortillas. Sourdough donut holes are definitely my favorite though. Nothing beats a warm sugary donut. These sourdough donut holes are easy to make. They do need some active sourdough… Read More
Apple Crumble is a family favourite in our house both now and when I was growing up.

My Grandma made the most delicious apple crumble – chewy and crispy and… Read More

Although it sounds fancy (and therefore difficult to make), crème brûlée is easy to make. It is the perfect dessert to follow a Valentine’s dinner. Heck, you can skip dinner all together and just have the crème brûlée. I won’t judge. It has milk (dairy), vanilla beans (bean = vegetable), fruit zest. A well-rounded meal in my book.
No torch necessary. We are going to caramelize these babies in the broiler.
My dear friend Robin made this dip and had it out for sampling at Spice & Grain, my favorite place to drink coffee and pretend to work. I tried more than a sampling with some ginger snaps and I was absolutely smitten. It was like little bites of pumpkin pie. Because she is such a sweetheart, she is letting me share her recipe with you.
Harvest pumpkin dip is good not only on ginger snaps and vanilla cookies, it is wonderful on apples as a (semi-) healthy snack.
Thanks to my good friend Tessa of Homestead Lady, I have a really great giveaway prize for my Ebelskiver loving fans. This giveaway includes a cast iron Ebelskiver pan, an Ebelskiver cookbook, and even a recipe folder. That is an Ebelskiver? The word itself is Danish for apple slices, but the meaning is a dessert or snack similar to a pancake, but with a flakier texture and round shape.
Cookies are, of course, always a big hit with kids. With the sneaky addition of flax seed and swapping out some of the oil with unsweetened applesauce, the kiddos have no clue that what they’re chowing down on is H-E-A-L-T-H-Y. Even I enjoy popping a few of these in my purse as I head out the door to nibble on mid-morning.
You are going to love these sugar cookies for a variety of reasons. First, they are ridiculously easy to make and nearly impossible to mess up. Second, the dough can be made ahead of time and frozen in plastic wrap for up to six months. Third, these beautiful colors were made with an all natural food dyes.
These old-fashioned rolled oat cookies are excellent for gift giving. You can gift them as drop cookies, or roll them out, cut them with cookie cutters and make sandwiches out of them. I frosted today’s cookies with a cream cheese frosting that includes Wilton Candy Melts to give it a caramel apple flavor.
I had a vision of the perfect chewy pumpkin spice cookie. There are hundreds of cakey pumpkin cookies floating around and now I see why. Pumpkin is a temperamental ingredient. There were many delicious failures in my week-long attempt at the perfect cookie. After much trial and error, I finally got it right.
This week in Cookie Month ’14, we are doing a shout out for family favorites. Our family favorite has got to be chocolate chocolate chip cookies. Our sponsor, Bob’s Red Mill, inspired me to take our family favorite and see if I could make an equally delicious cookie that’s made from gluten free flour.
Today’s cookie is one of my favorites. It is proof that mistakes can turn into wonderful opportunities. This was suppose to be a sugar cookie, but as soon as I pulled the pan from the oven, I knew something wasn’t quite right. The taste was not that of a sugar cookie, more like Danish Shortbread cookies.
