We decided to do a fun twist on our classic 3×3 Thursday theme. Instead of individually developing a recipe today, we decided to choose one of each other’s recipes and recreate them. A recipe swap of sorts. My girl was Luci and I could only pick one of hers. ONE people. Do you know how hard it is to pick just one recipe from a food blogger who makes amazing food? I
My latest obsession is baking skillet cookies. Baking will never be easier than this. Mix up a batch of delicious batter, spread in a skillet, and BAM, 25 minutes later, you’ve got one amazing cookie that can serve 8 people. Or 2. Serve with a dollop of sweetened sour cream, ice cream or a glass of milk. Honestly, you can’t go wrong here. Hence, why it’s a favorite here. What are
Does anyone really get tired of cookies? I don’t think so. If you haven’t caught on yet, this month is Christmas cookie month. So many new recipes to share with you – this one being an old recipe that’s tried and true. This is my mom’s favorite recipe for Russian tea cakes, a cookie that she makes every Christmas. It comes directly from her treasured Betty Crocker cookbook with just a
I take it ALL back. Every single time I have ever said I am not a huge fan of cookies was a lie, one that I’ve recently discovered upon making these out-of-this-world bars. This is Christmas cookie recipe #2 baked last week during my cookie-fest with my mom and sisters. But seriously. If you love toffee and chocolate, you will love these and won’t be able to stop at just
As I write this, I am on my way to the airport where I’ll be heading to the Caribbean in just a few short hours. In my excitement for booking my flight, I failed to take into account that arriving at St Thomas at 3pm meant not only an early arrival on the islands but more importantly, a 4:30 am alarm clock this morning. And I can’t stop yawning.
When my sisters and I were younger, my mom would make us fun foods that typical kids love: chocolate chip cookies, veggies with Ranch dip, fruity drinks, and this fruit pizza. I remember thinking it was the coolest thing ever. She would make a chocolate chip crust for us and then top it with a pudding mixture and an assortment of fresh fruit. It was amazing. I decided to
I’ve already mentioned that cakes are my favorite form of dessert so you know it’s a big deal when I make cookies. Usually, they’re for A. His favorite form of dessert is cookies and if they’re chocolate chip, you’d better hide your share. Obviously, I made these a few days ago. The conversation went like this: Me: What do you want for dessert? Cookies? A: Do you have to ask?
In celebration of National Medjool Date Day… It’s no secret that I’ve got a sweet tooth. And sometimes that sweet tooth involves desserts that the hubs isn’t a fan of (i.e. anything involving peanut butter). Most of the time, I end up not making those types of desserts because I don’t want to get stuck eating the whole thing and it’s not worth the time involved if I’m the only
Growing up, my mom made a lot of French-influenced desserts like Charlotte (cake), cream puffs, and bûche de Noël (yule log). There were also various arrays of petit fours and mille feuille readily available (in bakeries) for anyone’s enjoyment. For years Syria and Lebanon were under French rule and so much of the French culture rubbed off on this part of the Middle East. Children learned (and still do) French in school,
