Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

February 8, 2017

Valentines Day is just around the corner. I am not the artistic or crafty type. Frankly, I don’t have an artsy bone in my body. I envy moms that can make their kids lunches look like animals or flowers.  There is nothing cute about the cheese, peanut butter or turkey sandwich that gets packed in my kids […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

March 22, 2015

I am not going to lie to you. These cookies are good but they are not mind blowing enough to take to a party. They are not the kind you would hide from your kids to have late night with a glass of wine.  In fact, I want my kids to eat these cookies for snacks. They […]

coffee and brownies

They say smells can bring you back  to certain memories. In fact, smells can change your mood. Coffee is one of my favorite smells that does just that. Coffee reminds me of so many good things. It especially brings me back to my early childhood and staying at my grandparents’ house during summer vacation. My grandparents were avid […]

Homemade “Chipwiches” For National Ice Cream Month

July 16, 2013

One of my favorite early teenage memories is swimming at the local town pool in the summer and eating chipwiches and cheese fries from the snack bar.  Ahhh, those were the days! We would get to the pool right after lunch.  First we would swim a little and dive for pennies. Then you went off […]

Festive Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

December 18, 2012

I love this holiday time of year where there are plenty of reasons to make treats and desserts. Every year about a week before Christmas, I turn on the oven and bake up piles of cookies.  We like to give goodies to teachers, bus drivers, neighbors and friends.  Every person in our household has a […]

Cherry Blondies

July 11, 2012

Believe it or not, I am not a chocolate person. I would much rather have a dessert filled with fruit and whipped cream. Give me strawberry short cake or key lime pie and I will skip the brownies every time. My son is the chocolate person in this house and he constantly begs for me […]

Polish Pretzel Butter Cookies

November 17, 2011

This past week, my nine year old son had to do a cultural project for school. Since my husband’s father is Polish, my son decided to find out more about Poland. This included information on my favorite thing which is food. Most of the children decided to make some kind of cultural dish so my son picked […]
