Pumpkin Bars

image

These are incredible. I found this recipe on mykitchencafe (can you tell I’m a huge fan of her site?), and I think she got it from Paula Deen. I was searching for a good seasonal recipe and this was exactly was I was looking for....

Homemade Oreos

image

These were so fun to make. I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen (my new favorite recipe site). I love the idea of a homemade version of such a classic cookie. And the verdict from everyone that tried them was that they taste even...

Broccoli Cheese Soup

_MG_4764

I decided it was about time I actually cooked something for the blog, rather than the baking I tend to do a lot of. This couldn’t quite be classified as healthy (although I don’t think it’s too terribly bad for you…), but at least...

Fresh Apple Cake

image

This is the perfect fall cake. It tastes wonderful, it’s filled with apples and cinnamon, and it makes your whole house just feel like fall while you’re baking it. This is an Apples of Gold recipe, and it lives up to the high expectations...

Herbes de Provence Bread

Another great bread recipe! I’m really beginning to think that you just can’t go wrong with homemade bread. This was another simple one, with a key star ingredient – Herbes de Provence. This seasoning was highly recommended to me by the Apples of Gold...

Hearth Bread

This bread also goes by the name “the easiest loaf of bread you’ll ever make” from King Arthur Flour. I don’t know if I would go that far (English Muffin bread is pretty easy!), but this recipe definitely isn’t complicated. Like most bread recipes, the...

No-Bakes

image

I love these no-bake cookies, and I’d almost forgotten about them. But this week I was looking for a quick recipe to make to bring to work and the last thing I wanted to do was go to the store. I searched tasty kitchen...

Gnocchi

image

This is a great inexpensive, filling, healthy dinner. And if you’re willing to do some extra work now to make extra, it can be a wonderful meal many times in the future as well. Gnocchi are little potato dumplings, and they are my favorite...

Blueberry (Black Raspberry) Crumb Cake

image

    I really liked this dessert. I made “black raspberry” crumb cake instead of blueberry crumb cake, because I had black raspberries in the freezer. I saw pictures of this recipe on a baking blog, and it looked like something Mike would really...
