Fruit and Cream Cake

The tunnel of […]

Biscotti Thins

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes, though I can’t say I’ve ever made it the same way twice. These thinly sliced biscotti can be made with almost any kind of chopped dried fruit, nut, candy and flavorings. This version is pretty basic and calls for pecans, white chips and dried cranberries – […]

Zucchini, Apple and Carrot Bread

Apple Carrot and Zucchini Bread

I was very impressed with the shape and texture of yesterday’s Zucchini Bread with Cream Cheese Filling and decided to try a variation.  Instead of 3 cups of shredded zucchini, I used 1 cup each apple, zucchini and carrots and nixed the cream cheese filling in favor of a simple drizzle of icing. This one’s even […]

Hazelnut Chewies

I’ve been making these cookies for years, but in the past couple of months they’ve become a family favorite. Similar to meringues, but a lot quicker to make since you don’t have to dry them out for a long period in the oven, these chocolaty, nut and egg white cookies can be made with your […]

Giant Oatmeal Cookies

Today’s recipe is from my friend Megan at Megan’s Sweet Life. Megan, who recently moved to Texas, was kind enough to try my marble cake. I was so grateful she took the time to make it that I baked a batch of her family’s favorite oatmeal cookies. Thanks to Megan, I think my family has […]

Beth’s Cola Banana Bread

Coca Cola Banana Bread

My sister-in-law, Beth, and her family stayed with us over the holidays. A good time was had by all, and it was sad to see them go.  However, they did leave a parting gift — some over-ripe bananas and a six pack of regular Coca Cola. I rarely have both of those ingredients in the […]
