Marshmallow Mocha Fudge Brownies

Marshmallow Mocha Fudge Brownies

I usually make these brownies from scratch-I mean completely from scratch, not just the icing. Today I tried them with a brownie mix, and guess what? Pretty close to the original. Not identical, but I don’t foresee anyone yelling “hey- these came from a box!” […]

Cornbread Salad

Cornbread Salad

I use the term “salad” loosely here. If you’re searching for a glimpse of iceberg, romaine, kale, or even cabbage-you won’t find it. Cornbread salad traditionally contains, well, cornbread, but also a lot of veggies, a bit of bacon, and a good soak of some […]

No-Churn Snickerdoodle Peach Ice Cream

No-Churn Snickerdoodle Peach Ice Cream

No-churn ice cream-have you made it? Or are you tardy to the party like myself? Truth is, I just couldn’t see how whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk (the basis for most no-churn recipes) could metabolize into anything close to ice cream or, at least, […]

Peachy Doughnut Muffins

Peachy Doughnut Muffins

It’s my one of my favorite seasons! I don’t mean summer, either-I’m talking peach season. There aren’t many dishes that peaches don’t play well with. They taste great in desserts and savory recipes, too, not to mention breads and muffins. I usually fill a slightly […]

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake

Right now I am approximately 85% squash. I’m eating squash with dip, in stir fry, in veggie omelets, and in desserts like this Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake. If you’ve never had a zucchini baked good, I promise, cross my heart, that done properly, you’ll never […]

Dillicious Dip

Dillicious Dip

I could be persuaded to eat lots more veggies if I had a big bowl of this dill dip to dive into everyday. And more bread-not that I really need help eating more bread. But still, a hearty chunk of bread with a dollop of […]

Shortcut Thin Mints

Shortcut Thin Mints

Have you exhausted your Girl Scout cookie supply yet? Yeah, thought so. It’s a long time from February to July, isn’t it? I guess you could call around, see if your friends have any stashed in the freezer you could buy. Or you could make […]

Vanilla Funfetti Waffles

Vanilla Funfetti Waffles

Breakfast that can be dessert, too? Gimme! These funfetti waffles have a delicious vanilla flavor that reminds me of cake. We’ve eaten them with fruit and yogurt (and syrup), as well as topped with ice cream and chocolate syrup. They’re simple, and made with pantry […]

Biscoff Banana Icebox Pie

Biscoff Banana Icebox Pie

Guys, I’m sorry to say no airline will be serving this Biscoff banana pie. You’ll have to make it yourself and settle for the little pack of cookies inflight. Frequent Delta Airlines travelers know I’m talking about those addictive Biscoff cookies in the distinctive red […]

Cashew Chicken Salad

Cashew Chicken Salad

There’s an iconic restaurant in the big city that’s a favorite of ours. Although 85 years in operation, the current menu reflects the last 35 years of ownership. And it’s a good menu. The original soda fountain with marble counter is still there, too, where […]
