Ginger Cookies

If all goes well, I’ll have a few different recipes today. So far, I just have one, and it happens to be something I mentioned a few months ago – Ginger Toffee Cookies, made with Bits o’ Brickle. Bits o’ Brickle is not one of my favorite ingredients because I hate things that stick to […]

Saturday is almost over and I’m really looking forward to watching a movie. It’s been a long day. Fuzz had two friends over. One was a scheduled play date and the other girl just showed up. It’s a special thing when 3 girls play nicely together, but that didn’t happen today and 2 girls played […]

Chewy Ginger Cookies

I needed an assortment of cookies for tomorrow’s luncheon, and since I already did lava cookies and brownies. I decided to make the third cookie non-chocolate. This recipe is based on one by Carol Walter, though I made a few changes — my favorite being the cayenne pepper. It adds more zip to the cookies, but […]

Crisp Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies

Chai Sugar Cookies

I came across Chai Spiced Sugar Cookies in my “Food Writers’ Favorite Cookie” book. The original title was Crispy Indian Spiced Sugar Cookies, but most people recognize these spices as chai, so I changed the title. The cookies are just as I expected, fairly thin, very crispy with a strong cardamom flavor. Next time …

Ginger-Squash Cake

by on September 21, 2007 · 7 comments


Today’s cake recipe is from the most recent issue of Bon Appetit. I chose it because I’m into butternut squash right now and because the recipe was developed by Jean Anderson, whom I admire from afar. If you don’t own it already, I highly recommend her book The American Century Cookbooks for both the recipes […]

Molasses Oat Bran Cookies

Sixteen years ago, I was somewhat fat phobic. The national recommendations were to get about 30% of your calories from fat so my target was 20%. I ate low fat/non fat everything and saved up my fat calories for cookies, chocolate and cake – things I believed needed fat to taste good. These days, I […]

Ginger & Fruit Rocks

by on September 4, 2006 · 3 comments

Given my “Rah, Rah, Texas Hill Country” mood of late, I was very happy to come across a recipe for “Mrs. L.B.J.’s Moonrocks” in Maida Heatter’s Great Cookie book. For those of you who don’t know who “Mrs. L.B.J” is, it’s Ladybird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon B. Johnson who grew up in the …
