Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Some people adore the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, all the time. I’m not one of them. I only like it sometimes, when I’m in the right mood for it. But once I’m in the mood for chocolate peanut butter, I devour it! When […]

Pretzel Bites

Pretzel Bites

Today, I finally made my 50th bread recipe this year! Overall, this was such a fun resolution I made. I am a little sad to have this be over, but at the same time, I am looking forward to a little more down time. Since […]

Banana Muffins

Banana Muffins

Don’t throw out your speckled bananas. Don’t throw out a banana out even if the entire banana turns brown. Those super-overripe bananas are perfect to use for baking. If you don’t want to peel and freeze them, just stash them in the fridge, ugly peel […]

How I used up the rolled oats in my pantry (making Power Bars and lots of granola)

I’ve published a new blog post every day for the past 14 days. So exciting! I didn’t get blog posts up so regularly even when I was doing my 365 recipe challenge in 2010. It’s addictive; I don’t want to stop! I’ve more-or-less blogged about […]
