I think I buy too many bananas.  I seem to be baking a lot of GF recipes with bananas lately.  I do like them, but I can never eat them fast enough.  So instead of throwing them out, (I am not a smoothie person) I bake with them.  These are a really soft cookie and I t...

Continuing my experimenting with GF recipes I tried this one (from the kitchen of Flavor the Moments) and found it had a great flavor and great texture.  Next time I make it, I will coat the chocolate chips in a bit of almond flour before mixing them in, hopefully that...

I found this recipe on Pinterest (courtesy of Ambition Kitchen).  I made a slight change, I opted for butterscotch chips instead of chocolate.  They were a hit - even with friends who are not GF.  I am always looking for a little something to satisfy my sweet tooth and...

I saw this recipe recently in our local newspaper (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) and was intrigued by the fact that you needed to “bloom” your chocolate.  I have made brownies hundreds of times and never once did I need to bloom anything.  It was simple so worth a try....

I was hosting a family brunch today and at the last minute I thought I should have something for everyone to nibble on while I was finishing up brunch stuff in the kitchen.  I went to the Internet in search of scone recipes and found this one from Magnolia.  I had all...

I couldn’t decide this year on which cookie I wanted to make for Valentine’s Day so I made two.  Both with a touch of pink and both with cherries – but this one has something extra, chocolate.  (For the other cookie see Cherry Mexican Wedding Cakes).  Chocolate and che...

I put a twist on a Christmas favorite for these cookies.  They are the perfect bite.  Buttery, melt in your mouth goodness and not too sweet.  The touch of pink comes from the cherries making them a great choice for your special Valentine.  If you like a touch of choco...

When one of my grandchildren asks me to make them a birthday cake I always say yes.  It is a labor of love.  Liesl turned seven today and really wanted a doll cake.  She did not remember the Cinderella doll cake I made her for her third birthday so how could I say no?...

I love dates.  Sometimes when I make my Grandmother's date-filled cookies (at Christmas) I have some leftover filling.  I hate to waste those yummy dates so I usually make a half batch (8x8 pan) of date bars.  This recipe makes a 9x13 pan.  So if you love that great da...

This recipe was printed in the Journal years ago.  I have the original newspaper clipping and it is yellowed and stained like a good recipe should be.  It is a tried and true cookie.  When I made them this week-end I had the eclipse in mind which is why I dipped them c...
