TWD: Pecan Powder Puffs

I decided to make these during a marathon baking day in early March – I was baking a making a bunch of things, and somehow in the middle of it all, I neglected to see that flour was an ingredient. I know. It’s listed in the ingredients, it’s referred to in the instructions, and yet … Continue reading

TWD: Honey Nut Brownies

I have always had a thing about cakey cookies…and by “thing” I mean I don’t like ‘em,  I like cookies that are crispy and chewy. I guess I also have a thing with brownies too. I like the crackly top, somewhat dense, maybe fudgy and gooey kind of brownie. So, without seeing a picture of … Continue reading

TWD: Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins

Woops! Last week came and went and I forgot to post this. Oh well, better late than never! Okay, so based on ingredients on hand, my TWD recipe this week morphed into what I would more call an Orange Cranberry Muffin. No currants (I swapped out orange flavored dried cranberries), and no lemon oil. BUT, … Continue reading

TWD: Corniest Corn Muffins

I always get very excited to see the TWD recipes for the month when they are first posted, although I had some mixed feelings about the Corniest Corn Muffins. While I loooove a good corn muffin, I think of them more as a deep in the heart of winter sort of thing, to be served … Continue reading

TWD: Toasted Almond Scones

I’ll be short, sweet, and to the point on this one. These were 1) super easy, and that’s coming from someone who has a history of fouling up any recipe that has something about not “overworking” or “overmixing” the dough, 2) smelled really good – how could toasted almonds and butter NOT smell good!, and … Continue reading

TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

I’ve gone on a baking frenzy. Typing this post right now, these cookies don’t come up as our weekly recipe for another two weeks! But, I got in the mood and basically baked for a whole weekend. Actually, truth be told, two whole weekends. More fruits of my labor to be posted soon. :-) I … Continue reading

TWD: Great Grains Muffins

As usual, I busted out the mini muffin pan for these. I just find that they are easier to give away when they are minis…the full size muffin is way more of an investment. And plus, I get to spread the wealth a little more! (And yes, I bake to give away…I could never possibly … Continue reading

TWD: Cranberry Lime Galette

A million things tell you the holidays are coming, and the appearance of fresh cranberries in every grocery store is one of them. Perfectly timed for the season, this week’s TWD recipe uses fresh beatiful cranberries, apple, and gets a nice little twang from lime and a kick from fresh ginger. I love galettes for … Continue reading

TWD: Peanuttiest Blondies

Woops! Took off for the weekend to Austin for a most insane Halloween…and just squeaking these in at the last minute! Considering I am not a peanut butter person, they do smell pretty good and I am absolutely sure they will disappear tomorrow. I did have to make a switch – for some completely odd … Continue reading
