Chocolate Oat Bars

Chocolate Oat Bars

I first had something like these Chocolate Oat Bars at the Lafayette Square farmer’s market in St. Louis. They were amazing. Hearty yet decadent. I adored them. I first made this as recipe #116 for my 365 Recipe Challenge back in 2010. I hadn’t made…

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Since I keep getting zucchini in my CSA, I knew I had to revisit this chocolate zucchini cake recipe. Amelia usually won’t eat zucchini, and there’s only so much zucchini that Alex and I can eat (although it is great grilled). So savory dishes were…

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

Many people love fruit pies. Not me. I love fruit, but it’s best fresh or dried, and usually unsweetened. Let’s have fruit as part of our meal, and have our dessert be a pie that’s smooth and creamy, like this Coconut Cream Pie. Coconut Cream…

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

In my quest to make weekend breakfast more often this year, I’ve returned to making scones more often. This time, I decided to revisit the Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones that I made 8 years ago as my 367th and final recipe of 2010, when I…

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

For months, I’ve had cans of coconut milk stored in my pantry, in anticipation of trying out these Pina Colada Waffles with Rum Sauce again. I first made them from Alton Brown’s recipe 8 years ago when I did my 365 Recipe Challenge, but I’ve…

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

It’s been 8 years since I first made Alton Brown’s Plain Ole’ Brownies (as part of my 365 Recipe Challenge). I’ve often felt that, although I attempted the brownies two or three times, I didn’t quite do them justice.* So I finally tried them again.

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup is a delicious and easy vegetarian meal. It’s been too long since I made it, and I’m so glad I tried it again! I originally wrote about this recipe in 2010 – it was #337 of my…

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other…

Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

I first made Fennel-Crusted Pork with Potatoes and Pears 7 years ago, as #362 of my 365 recipes that I made that year. Alex had gotten our friends to give me recipes for a birthday several years prior (best present ever!).

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

I first made these White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies as my 279th recipe of 2010. For some reason, it’s taken me years to get around to making them again. Perhaps I forgot about them among all my recipes for brownies and rich bar cookies. And that’s…
