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

My Love Affair with Biscoff

I don’t generally have a whole lot of background story to most of my posts. In fact, I could generally sum them up with either “TWD” or “I was craving…” But there’s a wee bit of a story to this so here goes. A couple years ago, I got a note saying that my USAirways … Continue reading

This Year’s Secret Cupid

SOMEhow I managed to pick the name of the healthiest girl in the office. Snort. Like healthy as in sustains on veggies and Laughing Cow, does regular “juice cleanses” and can keep a big bowl of M&M’s on her desk without burying her head in them. So, my approach this year was slightly different and … 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

I had a craving…

Ever have one of those really strange cravings, and you’re not really sure where it came from, but you can’t get it out of your head? That’s what happened to me the other night. I couldn’t stop thinking about cranberry pecan bread…not quick bread/sweet bread, but rather that baguette style that the wine bars always seem to … 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: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

I am horrified. I cannot BELIEVE it has been  more than 2 months since my last post!! Shame, shame, shame on me. I guess that’s what happens around the holidays though. I mean, I am sure that I baked up a storm, and there’s a good chance I even have pictures of everything, but somehow … Continue reading
