A Fall Favorite – Apple Cider Donuts

I love food trends. I follow them and try to keep,you all informed. This year I have seen Apple Cider Donuts everywhere! I love that they can be fried or baked. I’ve seen them sprinkled with cinnamon sugar or glazed. I made mine in a donut…

Grandmother’s Fudgy Brownies, part deux.

S’Mores Babka!

I originally developed this recipe for a contest sponsored, in part, by Ghirardelli. They were looking for the best new s’more. Babka and s’mores are having a moment and it seemed like a no brainer to combine the two. I love this idea and it…

Cookie Week!

I first found this recipe in Southern Living Magazine in December of 2014. It was one of the first recipes that I felt didn’t need any changes. It was actually an advertisement for Kraft products. Once I made it I knew it was perfect as…

Take a break with Apple Crisp.

Take a break with Apple Crisp.

A friend said “I am so bored with my own cooking.” When I chimed in that so was I , she was flummoxed. What hope did that leave for her if even I am bored. It made we realize that we have to rely on…
