Special Marshmallow Treats

This may not be the most exciting recipe, but it’s what I made today and I was pretty happy with the results. In an effort to use up what was left of a giant box of Special K and a bag of marshmallows I’d bought for no particular reason, I substituted Special K for the […]

Giant Pumpkin Cookie Cake or Pizza

Wow, it finally feels like fall around here. Not only is it cool and pleasant, it’s been raining cats and dogs! This is what it’s like to have seasons. After last year’s endless summer, I’d almost given up. Anyway, I was in the mood to celebrate with an autumn themed chocolate chip cookie cake (aka […]

Nancy’s Divine Lemon Bars

Divine Lemon Bars

Sometimes the best recipes result from accidents, and that’s exactly what happened with these Lemon Bars. Nancy at Tag Sale Tastes volunteered to make lemon bars for a church luncheon, and realized she didn’t have enough granulated sugar. Rather than stop everything and run to the store, she substituted powdered sugar and crossed her fingers. […]

Tracys Special Scotcheroos

Scotcheroos with Special K cereal

I was craving Scotcheroos last week, so I went to H.E.B., gathered most of the ingredients, then discovered that the store was completely out of Nestle butterscotch morsels. After being helped by a friendly employee who was sympathetic towards my predicament and offered several substitution ideas even though she’d never tasted Scotcheroos, I put all […]

Mini Loaf Pan Bars

Quick!  Point me toward the nearest bake sale!  There’s a batch of cute, loaf shaped M&M cookies that need a new home. And I didn’t even have to buy a special pan. During a rainy day closet cleaning, I found what appears to be a Wilton Aluminum 9-Cavity Petite Loaf Pan hidden away in a […]

No-Bake Granola Bars

granola bars

I used to think granola bars should be made with raw oats, nuts, seeds and sugar and that making them with prepared granola was just redundant. However, now that I’ve become fanatical about making homemade granola and have loads and load of it in the freezer, I’ll use it any way I can. The latest […]

Butterscotch Breakfast Bars

Butterscotch Breakfast Bars

I’ve been craving healthier cookies this week — not low fat, just cookies with a little less sugar and more whole grain. This batch did the trick. The bars aren’t super healthy given the butter and white sugar, but they’re a good compromise and something the whole family really liked. For the flour, I used […]

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Bars

Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Bars

Thanks for all the suggestions on what brands and what type of almond milk to buy. I’ve officially finished the first carton and am ready for more, but until then I’m still stuck in this brownie/blondie mode. Now I did make a marble cake yesterday, but it was such a convoluted and weird recipe I’m […]
