Cinnamon Raisin Bagels

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and those who have them. My gift was a homemade card, a pile of cookbooks and a bottle of Pinot Gris from Oregon. My mother’s gift was a store-bought card with Snoopy on it (family tradition), coffee for her Keurig and some cinnamon raisin swirl bagels …

Feta and Spinach Stuffed Stromboli

by on April 8, 2014 · 3 comments


Well, it appears I have a Mediterranean theme going on. Yesterday’s recipe was Olive Brittle and today’s is Feta and Spinach Stuffed Stromboli. This recipe is similar to the Ham & Cheese Stromboli but easier because it calls for thawed frozen bread dough. I’ve never actually used frozen bread dough because I’m too impatient to […]

King Cake

It’s not too late to make a King Cake! Or at least that’s what I kept telling myself yesterday as I put together my first scratch King Cake just days before Mardi Gras. I’d had plans to make a scratch King Cake for months, but other recipes kept taking priority and I just never seemed […]

Cinnamon Streusel Pizza

Here’s a game day dessert that can double as breakfast! It’s called Cinnamon Streusel Pizza, and the way I would describe it is as kind of a cross between a pizza and a coffee cake.  It feeds a crowd and can be made in 30 minutes from start to finish, so it’s perfect for …

English Muffins with Bran Cereal

One of my pet peeves has always been crushed cereal at the bottom of the box, but over the years I’ve come to expect it and have armed myself with a few recipes to use it up. My favorites are Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bran Cereal, Chocolate Chip Bran Bars and Bran Bread. And now […]

Thanks for the nice comments on Fuzz’s guest post. I hoping she’ll write another one, but for now you are stuck with me. I do have a great recipe, though! This is an old one from my friend Shelly, who found the original version in Cooking Light and recommended it as a food gift for […]

Kolache Made With Potato Flakes

Cream Cheese Filled Kolache

If you’ve been wondering what happens when you put potato flakes in your kolache dough, here’s the answer! This might be my favorite kolache recipe yet, or maybe it’s a tie with the Sour Cream Kolache. The sour cream version has a little bit of extra flavor, while the potato dough has a more doughnut-like […]

Pudding Mix Kolaches

Today’s sweet treat is an heirloom recipe for homemade kolaches made with cook and serve pudding mix. Thanks to Wendy and her family for sharing! I am posting the recipe as it appears in Wendy’s family collection, but I’ve included my notes since a few things have changed in the past 50 years. One change […]
