If shortbread cookies and pie crust had a baby, this would be it. These cookies are a tradition in the Poitou region in France. And like Dorie says about replacing the butter with something else, “…don’t even think about it.” Addictive and perfectly sweet, you will be glad you tried them. From one of my […]Continue Reading...

Creamless and creamy? I was skeptical, too, so I gave it a shot and was happily surprised that it worked just great! I added a few basil leaves before whirling it up in the Blendtec. Since I used stale bread, I needed more broth than listed below. The fat/calorie difference in using bread vs. cream […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Was this the tastiest chocolate cake I’ve ever had? Of course not. We’re talking one minute in the microwave, not a fancy chocolate genoise that took an hour. However, this is a fantastic way to eat your morning egg, to give your child a “treat,” or to get some instant chocolate gratification. I added a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

I am normally not a huge fan of beef stew. But this stew is not a traditional American beef and gravy dish. It is loaded with onions, shallots, bacon, a bouquet garni and a WHOLE BOTTLE of wine. It’s a fancy French twist on beef stew. Look ahead to the combined cook time before […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
The original recipe from Mummy Musings and Mayhem calls for grated pumpkin. Since it is not easy to find all year round, a pain to cut and grate (anyone with a toddler probably doesn’t have time to mess around with a pumpkin, although it’s a great idea), and basically has similar vitamin content to […]Continue Reading...

Very similar to the Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars we also have on this blog, a main ingredient of this version is almonds instead of cashews like the Larabars. Any nut would work, as well as any add-ins you could think of. I’m thinking dried cherries and dark chocolate chips next time. Fast, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Similar to Nature Valley crunchy granola bars, this recipe from America’s Test Kitchen uses less sugar and syrup to “glue” the oats together by processing some of the oats into flour. Mixing the oat flour with the syrup and sugar mixture “glues” the remaining ingredients together without the extra syrup. To make these peanut butter […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
These were very tasty…a little fussy for a weeknight, but great for a fun occasion. I used sliced chicken sausage and sauteed mushrooms with the sauce and cheese for the filling. And they probably don’t need to be sprayed with cooking spray before going into the oven. from My Favorite Things Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
