Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies

Bakerella is a genius, even if her genius ideas come from Betty Crocker, like this one. Allow me to continue praising Bakerella while I’m on the subject. If you haven’t checked out her website, you must now.  She’s so witty and creative with anything she puts together in the kitchen.  And, her food photos?…don’t even […]

Oven Baked French Fries

dsc_6758

The original recipe is actually Baked Meyer Lemon Fries, but I love french fries so much that I usually can’t wait long enough for the extra step in mixing the extra seasonings!  I’m sure it’s worth the short wait, but once I take the fries out of the oven and smell their tempting deliciousness, it’s […]

Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels

Even though this is listed as a “kids recipe” in Giada de Laurentiis’ book “New Italian Favorites”, I thought it was a great weeknight meal for me and Ben.  Last week was a successful meal planning week and this was one of those dinners.  Ben loved this, and I ate it for lunch the next […]

TCHO “Citrus” Chocolate

This is my favorite flavor of TCHO Chocolate so far.  I just savored this batch instead of trying to incorporate it into a recipe.  The chocolate has just a hint of a citrusy flavor that leaves you with a bit of a fresh taste in your mouth.  I could eat this forever!

Today I was telling my co-worker what a klutz I am in the kitchen.  Now I have a photo to prove it.

Bacon Cracker Appetizers

This is PW’s Holiday Bacon Appetizer, which she recalls as a flashback to 1981.  Me?  I was maybe one year old, depending on what part of the year she’s referring, so I don’t remember these nor have I ever had them in the following 27 years.  Which is great, because this recipe was new to […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Happy Birthday, Stacey!  Today is my good friend’s 30th birthday.  She and her husband co-lead small group with us on Wednesday’s, so we take turns hosting.  This last Wednesday was our turn to host, so I used it as an opportunity to surprise Stacey with this Chocolate Peanut Butter cake.  I’ve been waiting to make […]

Peanut Butter Frosting

I used two batches of this frosting on the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake I made Wednesday for a friend’s 30th birthday.  My husband can’t wait for me to use this again on chocolate cupcakes! Peanut Butter Frosting (Ina Garten) 1 cup confectioners’ sugar 1 cup creamy peanut butter 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature […]

Dog Treats

That’s Annie.  Isn’t she cute?  She belongs to our good friends, Stephanie and Brian.  Looks like she might be enjoying that snack! I made dog treats for my sister’s dog, Zack, to include in her housewarming goody box (along with the granola bars and pumpkin bread).  This recipe made a ton of treats (too many […]
