Still need to bake something for a Christmas Eve or Day gathering? Here is a recipe that is sure to be a favorite. If you are…
My mother-in-law’s chocolate chip cookie recipe is legendary. It was the one thing my husband brought to our marriage that I didn’t somehow try to get rid of over the years . He used to make them religiously, batch after batch and I was okay with that, because hey, besides always having fresh cookies in the jar, I didn’t have to make them. They became the staple item we brought to family gatherings and potlucks because everybody loved them…and everybody asked for the recipe.
Here is a chocolaty twist on a traditional favorite peanut butter cookie. The cookies will come out of the oven flatter than you would expect, but the insides stay chewy and the outer edges are crispy – the perfect texture combination to the sweet & salty of the chocolate and peanut butter!
I think spring has FINALLY sprung here in North Texas! April ‘springs’ with events for us this year too. First our 20th wedding anniversary, then Easter, and then our daughter’s 18th birthday. And if there is anything in the world my husband and daughter can’t get enough of, it’s chocolate. So when Good Cook sent me their new Sweet Creations Spring Bark Mold and Hop Into Spring Spatula, I immediately had anniversary treats, Easter basket goodies and birthday sweets in mind…using chocolate of course!
Ever have one of those days where you want to be creative but also just want to stay home? I had one of those not too long ago. I wanted to make something a bit different for my family using stuff I already had at home. Spying a tube of peanut butter cookie dough in the fridge I headed to the pantry to see what I could add to it.
Remembering a tip from the book Everyday Confetti about making these with bananas while camping, I ended up coming out of the pantry with a jar of Nutella and a bag of marshmallows, which ended up becoming Peanut Butter Nutella S’mores. Yum!
Family, Food & Football – that’s what it’s all about in fall, am I right?!
While some people like the wings and the nachos, our family we head right to the sweet treats. And the more chocolate the better. I’m so glad that I’m part of the eMeals blogger network (and because of that, I get some free menu plans to help me feed my family – and if you click any of the links to sign up … I’ll earn a bit of cash, so thanks) even before I became a part of it, it was my go to place to find the best recipes that are
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.
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.
