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 […]

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

I love homemade hot chocolate, made with milk or rich cream, but sometimes it’s cold and you want something a little easier and kid-friendly (and lighter). When I do, I turn to this Hot Cocoa Mix recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown’s. What do […]

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

I started making fruitcake for my extended family for Christmas in 2004 or 2005. I didn’t foist it on them; I only started making it after they told me, unprompted, that they liked fruitcake! I was thrilled to have an excuse to make it. Ever […]

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

As I was preparing to do my holiday baking and cooking, King Arthur Flour posted a recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle. The recipe sounded perfect. I love making candy to gift for the holidays because it ships well and stays good for a long time. […]

Stollen

Stollen

For Bread 43, I made Stollen. I’d actually planned to make a different panetonne recipe than I have in years past (and not make this fruitcake or this fruitcake entirely), but with the move and holiday travel, I didn’t have a chance to plan my […]

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

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 […]
