Mini Ginger Muffins

Ginger Mini Muffins

Breakfasts have been a little boring around here, so this week I tried to spice things up with some some mini ginger muffins. Using a recipe I typically use for regular gingerbread, I baked it my Baker’s Secret Nonstick 24-Cup Mini Muffin Pan. The results were moist muffins with beautifully rounded tops. As for flavor, […]

Toasted Pecan Date Bread

Toasted Pecan Date Bread

This isn’t much of a Father’s Day recipe. In fact, I made it for my mother. But oddly enough, Todd really liked it even though he’s not much of a quick bread person. Or a date person. Or a pecan person. Maybe he was just really hungry?  I don’t know, but it was a surprise […]

Not-So-Squirrely Scones

Last night while re-reading Dreena Burton’s Vive le Vegan!, I came across a recipe called Squirrely Scones. I’ve passed it up dozens of times and don’t know why, considering the ingredients are things we keep around the house and that we love scones. So this morning, thinking I’d surprise Fuzz with some scones (she’s going […]

Chocolate Chip Apple Bread

Happy Friday!  To start the weekend, here’s a no-oil, no-butter recipe for Chocolate Chip Apple Bread from Dupont Teflon’s magazine, Carefree Cooking. It tasted great, and might taste even better to you if you make it in a free ProBake loaf pan courtesy of DuPont Teflon. Just leave a comment telling me your least favorite […]

Bourbon Banana Bread

Bourbon Banana Bread

There’s no shame in having a little bourbon for breakfast, right? At least in this case, where it’s baked into banana bread. Then again, you may prefer this bread for a late afternoon snack with coffee or even dessert because it’s sweet, and you can really taste the bourbon. It’s so strong I’m not sure […]

Rye Quick Bread

This has been one of those crazy, insane weeks where I barely have time to brush my teeth let alone post a cookie. Given the circumstances, I reached out to my friend Mary at Chew The Fat (creator of awesome breakfast cereal personality tests) and asked if she’d like to share a recipe here on Cookie […]

Mini Pumpkin Loaves

My New Year’s resolution to “bake more layer cakes” hasn’t gotten off to a very start, so I’m changing it. “This year I resolve to make use of my 3×5 inch loaf pans” Do you own a 3 x5 inch loaf pan? I have a metal one and two ceramic ones from Garden Ridge Pottery. […]

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

cheddar cheese biscuits

Do you ever plan the evening meal around the bread? I don’t do it often, but yesterday I made this Chunky Beef Chili (which was excellent, btw) because it seemed like a good accompaniment to these cheddar biscuits. I yanked this recipe out of a Nestle ad in Food Network magazine. Its interesting feature was […]
