Pumpkin Bread

dsc_67161

Florentines and Pizzelles were part of my Christmas boxes this year, along with this pumpkin bread. Usually,  I make this pumpkin bread into two regular size loaves (as pictured above). But, since I decided to add it to the Christmas box this year, I made the recipe into mini loaves. It made about 20 mini […]

Chocolate Florentine

One year when Ben and I were visiting my parents in Michigan, my whole family spent a winter afternoon in the Gaslight Village of downtown East Grand Rapids. There were quaint little shops, ice cream parlors, luxury condos, and then we happened upon a small little bakery. Because we were full from ice cream, no […]

Pizzelle

This year I haven’t had much time to bake for my Christmas tins, so I had to limit the kind of cookies and limit the number of recipients. There are two delicate cookies, though, that I make sure I include because I want them to become a tradition. First, is pizzelle which are Italian waffle […]

What a busy week so far!! It’s only Tuesday! I have no time to post an actual recipe, but I do want to take the time to share this very yummy treat from Trader Joe’s. These are a seasonal product and I found out about them from a food blog I periodically read. But, once […]

My sister sent me this delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe with the above picture that she took. I made them last night not knowing until mid-recipe that the dough needs to chill for 1-3 hours. Well, I only had time to let it chill for 1 hour, so my cookies turned out a little flatter […]

I brought this dessert last Saturday to a Christmas party we attended. Our friend, Laura, hosted the dinner at her home. My other dish to bring was rolls, so I’ll post that next. Although I wasn’t too fond of this dessert, others at the party seemed to like it so I felt like I should […]

Green Chile Chicken Empanadas

Thanks to my friend, Emily (who just started a food blog titled Joy of Cooking), dinner tonight was very easy! I used a recipe from her site called Green Chile Beef Empanadas and made a few changes to my tastes. Instead of beef, I used taco flavored shredded chicken (store bought in a tub). It […]

Biscuit-Topped Italian Casserole

My sister and I bought new Le Creuset baking dishes on a great sale at Macy’s. They are the first Le Creuset’s I’ve owned, so naturally I was excited to use at least one of them right away. So, before I left work, I searched AllRecipes.com for a quick and easy casserole recipe where I […]
