Wonderful Chewy Kiss-Filled Brownies

These were amazing. I’ve made them twice since discovering the recipe, and they were just as good both times. I got the recipe from the back of the Hersheys Mini Kisses package, and changed it to whole wheat flour and bumped up the salt some. I took them to a church potluck, and a friend tasted them and requested them for the upcoming youth convention trip. They were a huge hit.

Menu Monday 08 NOV 2010

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 8th. As far as desserts go, I am going to begin baking for my husband’s birthday and Christmas baking, so I have some red velvet cookies to make. I also think that I’m going to make some apple turnovers or something similar to post a recipe for your holiday baking planning.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

I haven’t had a chance to eat this yet. Since I’m doing a Daniel Fast, I can’t eat the sugar. But, I made this for the volunteers on Tuesday night and it received rave reviews. I managed to save Kaylee a serving, and she said that it was “Amazing!”

Menu Monday 26 July 2010

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of July 26, 2010. As far as desserts go, we still have leftover birthday cake, so I’ll probably not make much this week. If I do anything, it will be some homemade strawberry ice cream and some cookies to load up the cookie jar. We are going out of town Wednesday morning and will be home Saturday, so I’m not going to post those days.

Decadent Cookies & Cream Cupcakes

My friend Heather at Out of the Box into the Kitchen posted the link for this recipe on her Facebook. I’d been looking for something fun and new to take to a church party, and the pictures were so amazing and so appealing that, despite my aversion to packaged cookies, made me want to make them. I found organic chocolate sandwich cookies and felt moderately better about the recipe — but enjoyed the flavor despite the processed product in it. (HA!) So, I’m not going to fool you into thinking there’s anything moderately good for you about these. I did use organic eggs and organic cookies — that’s the best I can give you. But, oh my, they were good. Very rich, but very good.

Resurrection Cookies

I make this recipe with my kids every Easter eve. We enjoy the cookies the next morning with our eggs for breakfast the next morning. The kids can’t wait to open the oven door the next morning. I originally found the recipe here. I LOVE how I get to read the Bible with them as we make these cookies, how they get to have some application to apply to the story to help them retain what they’re reading and/or hearing. This is a beautiful hands-on tool to teach the resurrection of our Lord.

Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies

I stumbled upon cinnamon chips at the commissary years ago and made the recipe on the back of the bag. These things were AMAZING. Everywhere I went, people asked me for the recipe. Then one day I couldn’t find them anymore. I searched everywhere, every store, all the time for them (I will admit that I still look for them in the baking aisle.) When we moved to Kentucky, we found Meijer stores and — they carry them! So, good luck finding them. I DO intend to play around with making my own cinnamon chips, so look for that sometime in the near future. I have since adjusted the recipe on the back – and they’re even better than they were before (which seems not only improbable, but impossible.)

Valentine’s Day Treats for School

These treats were made for Kaylee’s 4th grade teachers and school administrators — so, 3 years ago. They weren’t designed to offer any kind of tutorial in how to do them, so I apologize for that, but they give you an idea of how easy it is to put together something personal, something special for those people in your life whom you want to gift with Valentines.
