Thumbprint Cookies

A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend of mine visited for the weekend, and while she was here, she commented that I should make thumbprint cookies with my homemade strawberry jam. For those of you who are unfamiliar with thumbprint cookies, they are shortbread cookies with a little well in the middle, filled with … Continue reading

Kettle Corn

Ever since I made zebra popcorn, I’ve been obsessed with popping corn on the stove and making my own yummy flavored popcorn. All of my previous popcorn-at-home experience has been with microwaveable bags, and I had no idea that stovetop-popped corn is so much more delicious! So far, I’ve made buttered popcorn, garlic butter popcorn, … Continue reading

Sweetheart Popcorn

At my niece’s birthday party back in November, I had some zebra popcorn for the first time in years. For those who are unfamiliar with this delectable treat, zebra popcorn is caramel corn drizzled with dark and white chocolate. It is so addictive. Since then, I’ve wanted to make some. When I saw this delicious-looking and easy zebra … Continue reading

Strawberry Lovebugs

The other night, I was casting about Pinterest for some cute Valentine’s Day treats and came across these adorable strawberry and chocolate ladybugs from Wing It Vegan. Hers are way cuter than mine, but I thought these turned out pretty well, anyway, especially for my first attempt!  I guess I could have waited for the second … Continue reading

Christmas Gift Baskets, 2012 Edition!

It’s that time again — I’m in full gift basket mode! This year’s version is a lot like last year’s, with the exception of sugar cookies subbing in for banana bread, and the addition of furikake Chex mix to some of the baskets.   The contents are (click on each item for the recipe): Reindeer … Continue reading

East Meets West: Furikake Chex Mix

It’s December, which means I’ve now entered into full-on gift basket mode! You may recall the Christmas gift baskets I made last year; I still love the collection of reindeer Oreo pops, hot cocoa mix, chocolate stirring spoons, pretzel treats and banana bread, so I don’t intend to change things up too much this year. … Continue reading

Adorable Oreo Turkeys

Recently, I was looking for a cute, fun Thanksgiving treat to make for the kids. You all know I’m a fan of cake pops, but since I’m going to do the reindeer ones again for Christmas, I wanted to do something a bit easier. I decided on these adorable Oreo turkeys from Our Best Bites. … Continue reading

Pretzel “Crayons”

A while back, I saw these pretzel “crayons” by Gourmet Mom on-the-Go, and I knew I had to make them for Jack’s first day of kindergarten. You simply dip the ends of pretzel rods in candy melts (or melted white chocolate chips with some food coloring) and wrap the middle with a “crayon wrapper.” After … Continue reading

Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups

I first tried my hand at homemade fruit leather last spring, and since then, it’s become one of my favorite snacks to make for the whole family. It’s easy, and the resulting fruit leather is sweet yet tangy, chewy and sticky, just like the fruit roll-ups at the store, but with a lot less sugar … Continue reading

Easter-Themed Pretzel Treats

Just a quick post to share the Easter-themed pretzel treats I made last night. These are the same as the Christmas pretzel treats I made a few months ago (click on the bold text to be taken to the recipe), except I used pastel-colored M&Ms instead of red and green ones. By the way, how … Continue reading
