Rice Dainty

Rice Dainty

What is Rice Dainty? I made this dessert (if that is, in fact, what it is), ate a bunch of it, and still can’t quite give you a good answer. It is whatever you want it to be. It is rice Pudding-esque, and therefore it […]

Hot Chocolate Pops

Hot Chocolate Pops

Can we agree that the worst part of drinking hot chocolate is waiting long enough for the piping hot mug of coziness to cool down? But not too long so that it is no longer “hot” chocolate. Lukewarm easy-chug hot chocolate is just not cozy, […]

Cranberry Margarita Floats

Cranberry Margarita Floats

This year, my Christmas gift to you is the following recipe. You might say that the cranberry sorbet recipe I posted several weeks ago is the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve put a couple scoops in a wine glass and poured Prosecco or champagne […]

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing more comforting than a chocolate chip cookie. Maybe chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, I guess. But I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love a good CCC. I’ve had Granny’s recipe for these cookies on the docket for a long time now, […]

Frosted Lemon Cookies

Frosted Lemon Cookies

Sugarplum Bread

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

I know Halloween originated as a day to remember the saints, martyrs, and the faithfully departed. But this year I am too spooked by things like figuring out pre-school Halloween party logistics and complaining about ridiculously expensive Halloween candy (why is it so expensive these days!?). Not […]

Carpool Apple Betty

Carpool Apple Betty

A recipe can be like a game of telephone. One person passes their famous recipe on to the members of their book club, those bookworms make some changes then pass their versions on to their kids, those kiddos grow up and make changes over time, […]

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

Granny’s Golden Apple Fritters with Honey Glaze

It has been said that Americans will deep fry just about anything. But I really don’t know anyone who wants to deep fry anything. The words deep fry, to me, are synonymous with calories and a messy stove top. However, in an effort to use […]
