Dutch Baby Pancakes

Dutch Baby Pancakes

Mmm, I love Dutch Baby Pancakes! Have you had these? It is like a big giant pancake you bake in the oven and then add whatever toppings you want. A little confectioner’s sugar on top is yummy. Or guild the lily and add syrup and fresh sliced bananas, too. Yum! Dutch Baby Pancake 3 eggs … Continue reading

Chocolate Chip Scones

Chocolate Chip Scones

What is yummier than something to eat with a nice cup of tea? Something with chocolate chips in it, of course! This recipe for chocolate chip scones is my new go-to recipe for when I need something sweet (but not too sweet). Easy to make, yummy to eat, and they seem to be a hit … Continue reading

Recipe: Fresh Raspberry Cake

Recipe: Fresh Raspberry Cake

In the beginning of September, we took a family trip to a local farm for some fruit picking. My lovely Great-Aunt came with us, too. She loves fruit picking and has taken me and my sibs many times over the years. For part of her birthday present this year, we got her a gift certificate … Continue reading

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Cake

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Cake

It is 90 degrees and humid here. Can I say ugh? If it was 70 all summer long, that would be so good with me. The only good thing about this heat is that it makes me want to make summery desserts, like this Easy Strawberry Shortcake Cake. It truly is easy, especially if you … Continue reading

Strawberry Bread

Strawberry Bread

I had some strawberries that were just too sour for munching on their own, so I decided to bake them into this bread. It came out yummy! (I did add a splash of milk to the recipe because the batter was too thick and dry seeming.) It was so good fresh from the oven, but … Continue reading

Choco-Coconut Peanut Bars

Choco-Coconut Peanut Bars

After being annoyed about this, I decided to rummage and see what else I could find. I came up with Reese’s mini pb cups, peanuts, … Continue reading

Recipe: Baked Chicken Pizza Roll-Ups

I made up a recipe this week. It was my own idea with all my own thought-up ingredients. AND it turned out deliciously! (Or so I was told, since it involves meat and I am a vegetarian. It is always a challenge creating meat recipes since I can’t taste them to see how they turned … Continue reading

Mini Apple & Cranberry Pies

This past fall I won a copy of the autumn issue of Crafting Connections in a blog giveaway. This is a wonderful quarterly magazine for kids and their grown-ups, full of hands-on activities, recipes, and nature activities. My son and I have loved every thing we have done from the magazine. This past weekend we tried our hand … Continue reading

Pumpkin & Eggnog Baked French Toast

Pumpkin & Eggnog Baked French Toast

Now that I am almost all better (just a cough hanging on), I am back in the kitchen! I made a yummy baked french toast this Boxing Day morning. I altered this recipe to make it. And I totally cheated and didn’t let it sit overnight, so I am sure it would taste even yummier … Continue reading
