Christmas Sugar Cookie Drops

December 15, 2017

If I had to pick any dessert I wanted, cookies would probably not be my first choice. I love creamy filled pastries and things like fruit and whipped cream. I’d take a fruit cobbler over a brownie any day. But for some reason during the holidays, my love for cookies is much stronger than the […]

Cranberry Pistachio Shortbread Cookies #SundaySupper

December 10, 2017

Can you believe Christmas is two weeks away? Every year, I think I should have plenty of time to decorate the house, put up a Christmas tree, buy presents, wrap the gifts, bake cookies and bake more cookies. Well here we are and the house is only slightly decorated, there’s no tree up yet, and […]

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 […]
