This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Sounds weird, right? That was what I thought when my friend first mentioned it the other day. Blueberry soup is apparently quite common in Sweden, where my friend is from, and she said that it’s often used as a cold remedy, much like how we use chicken soup as a “cure-all” here in America for

Initially, this recipe started out as a rogue idea for something to take the place of my peppermint bark at our concert refreshment table this spring. It’s an old recipe on this blog, but it never fails to please the crowds. Originally, I’d planned to do a kind of Snickers bark with chocolate and caramel

Snickerdoodles are one of hubby’s favorite cookies. I’ve made him a snickerdoodle mug cake and a few trial batches of cookies, but nothing has ever really wowed him before. This time, I tried a few different things. First off, bigger cookies will come out softer, smaller ones will come out crunchier. Second, longer bake times

American cookies and baked goods are often made with more sugar than anything else. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sugar fiend and definitely don’t have a problem with it, but sometimes, I like to change things up. A few months ago, I made some Italian cookies with chocolate and black pepper. If you made

Banana bread is one of my favorite treats. It’s just cakey enough to make my body think I’m giving it a real dessert, but it’s ever so slightly healthier for you. It’s high in fiber and a classic baked good in any American kitchen. In the past, we’ve had banana pumpkin bread, which had a

I’ve been going through the Harry Potter book series lately, and, on several occasions, pasties are mentioned. I had no idea what a pasty was, so I looked it up one day, after hearing about pumpkin pasties for the second or third time. They’re hand pies, which I┬áhad heard of before, but which I had

That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,
