Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal

I used to think I didn’t like baked oatmeal. I am very particular about the way I eat my oatmeal, and somehow the baked version just didn’t taste quite right. Then I read a wonderful book on hospitality  (this one, if anyone’s interested!) and the author...

Creamy Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

Creamy Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

You probably can’t tell from the pictures, but this stovetop macaroni and cheese is incredibly creamy. Not only that but it came together very quickly. In fact I’m pretty sure it doesn’t take much more time than cooking up a box of Kraft mac...

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

If you’re anything like me, you will just have to look at the picture of this cake and you immediately want to make it. Although I didn’t use the same recipe, the original idea for this cake came from A Farm Girl’s Dabbles (a truly...
