Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

I’m addicted to these cookies. One of my resolutions for 2019 was to try a new or different cookie recipe each week. Well, I’ve given it up. I can’t stop making (and eating) these Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies, which are perhaps my favorite cookie…

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

I’ve attempted many white bean soups in the past, but none so delicious as this Bean and Bacon Soup. I look forward to eating it and its leftovers, something I can say about none of the other bean soups I made in the past. It…

Double Chocolate Scones

Double Chocolate Scones

Recently I’ve had the urge to remake my recipe for Double Chocolate Scones. And not just because they’re incredibly delicious.  Perhaps some of it is that they’re made with a substantial amount of whole wheat flour. It was a happy accident that led to this…

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it…

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

I make 3 or 4 batches of homemade marshmallows each year, and have been doing so for the last 7 or 8 years. I love them. A couple of these batches are always Chocolate or Chocolate Chip Marshmallows. I’ve never been a big marshmallows person…

DIY Food Gifts

DIY Food Gifts

I’ve been sending food gifts to my family and friends for years. During my childhood, we saw my relatives at Thanksgiving and at Christmas. My mom, sister, and I always made chocolate chip cookies, and we would make pecan pies and chocolate pies galore. One of…
