Holy popcorn, Batman, this is a good one. This is a REALLY good one. Caramel Corn is just not something I make very often, which I always chastise myself about when I actually do make it, because it’s way easier than I remember every single time. This time, I decided to make some for [...]
Abigail’s one request that she had for food for her birthday this year was for a Red Velvet cake. I’ll tell you, I really, really didn’t want to make this cake for her. In our quest for eating Real Food, one of the things I’ve been trying to eliminate as much as possible is [...]
Last week as I was assembling cookie recipes and ingredients for this week’s baking spree, Abigail came to me with a picture of a Whoopie Pie and asked if I could make something like it. Oh my, yes, yes I could! I recall making Whoopie Pies once before, and they turned out okay, but [...]
I had a surplus of lemons just hanging around from Thanksgiving, and in the back of my mind for the last few weeks was the idea to use them for lemon bars. But I was certain that the two lemons I had was not going to be enough for a whole pan of bars. [...]
If you’d asked me a few weeks ago what Christmas cookies we were making this year, I would have laughed at you and said something like, probably none. When you have limited grocery funds, real food has to come first before cookie ingredients. But the grocery strings have been lightened just a tad, and [...]
I went back and forth on trying this pie for Thanksgiving. I had never seen a pecan pie recipe that didn’t call for corn syrup, and I wasn’t entirely convinced it would work out. I have pretty high standards when it comes to pecan pie! After mulling it over for a few days, I [...]
A few years ago, we decided to move our family Thanksgiving celebration to Friday. We used to do the big meal on Thursday, but it would get really uncomfortable for my brothers and sisters who had other family in the area. They would find themselves eating TWO full turkey dinners in a matter of [...]
I shared this website the other day on one of the forums I frequent, and the site was subsequently cheered. Sprinkles by the pound? Oh yes. Yes, indeed.
Country Kitchen Sweet Art has been my reliable source for anything and everything when it comes to cake and cookie decorating- as well as candy making.
This cookie started out as something completely different. Then I changed up a few things in the recipe, and then I remembered how much I truly hate using my cookie press, so I turned the cookie into a plain old slice-and-bake icebox cookie. And the end result is a wonderful cookie that is not [...]
I wasn’t going to do any baking this year. I really wasn’t. I just decided that I didn’t want a mountain of baked goods sitting around waiting to be eaten. So instead, I decided the kids and I would do our Rich Rolled Sugar Cookies, and that would be it. And then Zander reminded [...]
About two weeks ago, the kids and I were walking through the grocery store when Zander’s eyes lighted upon a package of popcorn balls. His eyes were full of desire, and I almost grabbed the package to put in my cart when MY eyes lighted upon the price tag nearby. $7.99 for 1 dozen [...]
It’s been ages since I’ve had a cherry chip cookie. These used to be a regular feature on the school menus when I was in school. Considering that I ate cold lunch all through high school, it’s been a very long time since I had a cherry chip cookie.
So yesterday, we were grocery [...]
