Here's another pantry clean-out recipe, inspired by a recipe that was in a Panera Bread newsletter. I changed a few ingredients around since the whole point of my baking lately is to use up what we have and can't move with us. I also altered the directions a bit...because I like to keep things simple and use only my mixing bowl. I named them Chocopalypse Peanutty Cookies because I used all the cocoa and mini chocolate chips from the cupboard.. kind of like it is the end of the world, LOL! They are the perfect combination of salty & sweet, and crunchy & chewy.

Today is National Licorice Day, and I wanted to do something fun for my family using some licorice. I tried to come up with something unique, but just couldn't get the creative juices going, so I simply cut some Twizzlers up and added them to Crispy Rice Treats. Not overly unique - but certainly very yummy!
This Easter I wanted to make some cookies that weren't too sweet but that looked and tasted like 'spring.'
I was paging through some magazines and found a Christmas shortbread cookie recipe in one of them that I thought I could adapt to fit my needs.
One of the things about getting ready to move is you start trying to clean out your pantry. I have a big jar of Nutella and A. LOT. of Hershey Kisses in there. So I decided to make some of those classic Kiss Blossom cookies, but instead of using peanut butter, I used Nutella.
And you thought they were delicious when they had peanut butter in them.
The one thing that's great about the holidays, is that you end up making seasonal food that wouldn't be on your radar otherwise. When it comes to St. Patrick's Day one immediately conjures up food recipes that are green and/or have booze.
Thanks to the McCormick Kitchen experts, I tried my hand at a St. Patrick's Day goody, which incorporates both the green and the booze (well in my case at least the flavor of the booze LOL!). It's a festive creation to pull out for dessert on March 17th.
I grew up in a community that had a strong Mennonite/German population, many of whom immigrated from Eastern Europe. A staple traditional recipe in those homes at Easter time is Paska, which is a sweet bread.
My childhood best friend's mom, made a loaf of Paska just for me each year. When we graduated from high school, a family friend took over when she found out how much I loved it. Then when I got married, my sister-in-law made it for me. And then we moved from Canada to the U.S. and my supply chain of Paska….stopped!
I LOVE Pancakes. They are one of my favorite foods. I could eat them all the time. I've begun experimenting with my pancake batter to try and make my pancakes even tastier by stirring extra things into it. Last week I made Rocky Road Pancakes, and here's how.
Many, many moons ago, my husband was at a technical conference for his job. One of the guest speakers at said conference was Cliff Stoll, an astronomer turned systems manager at Berkeley who found a computer hacker in their system.
He related his story to the attendees, and also had his book, The Cuckoo's Egg, for sale about his experience hunting down the hacker. My husband bought a copy, read it, and then it sat on our bookshelf...for many, many years.
What do cookies have to do with this you ask?
It's been a long time since I've been caught up enough in both my blogging life and my real life that I have a chance to share some things that aren't sponsored or haven't been sent to me by a brand to try out! I'm hoping (and I say that with just a bit of facetiousness), that I'll be able to do this more in the future, but every time I say I will…well you know life happens!
That being said, I chronicle just about everything I make and we eat in our home.
Are you already fretting about what to make for a Valentine's dessert because you're counting your calories, but you don't want to disappoint your sweeties by making them nothing, or be a bit down yourself because you can only watch them eat it and not partake yourself?
No worries! Fiber One has you covered.
