The best bread recipe

This post may contain affiliate links or sponsored content, read our Disclosure Policy.

When my husband and I were newlyweds I had a strong desire to make bread for my new husband.  For some reason I imagined that part of being the perfect wife would entail making home made bread.  I am certain that a perfume that smelled like fresh bread would attract most men (save any celiacs)…  eau […]

Lemon Lime Sandwich Cookies

For this recipe I had been searching far and wide for a lemon poppy seed cookie. I had settled on one that was a sandwich cookie. Then I was thinking that I wanted to make these safe for my two kids with dairy and egg allergies so I knew I would be doing margarine, shortening, […]

I am proud of myself. I did not scour the internet searching for similar recipes, I came up with this all on my own! I tend to use a lot of cinnamon in my daily life whether it be a smoothie, canned fruit, baking, etc. I love cinnamon. I thought this treat could be something […]

Blondie Cake (Milk and Egg Free)

My son Max loves my baked goods. He says in his cutest 2 year old voice, “Cakes, Max cakes?” Basically he is asking/hoping I have made a treat he can eat. He really does eat and enjoy them too. They work as good bribery as he doesn’t always care about eating food. The kids could live […]

Cookie Butter Blondies with Oatmeal & White Chips

I am purposefully calling this recipe “Cookie Butter Blondies” with the finer points in brackets because I know there may be many variations of the new cookie butter obsession. Yes, this is already to obsession. I had avoided Cookie Butter ever since I started shopping at Trader Joes almost 3 years ago. I knew it […]

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

I am a big fan of cinnamon. The aroma and taste are one of my favorites. I love cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies, but don’t have the patience to make either. Traditional cinnamon rolls are very time intensive from letting them rise to frosting them one by one, etc. Traditional sugar cookies require refrigeration and […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Butter Cookies

  I had made this recipe once before “AJ safe” about a year ago (no milk or eggs). Angel reminded me that they taste better the next day, hence my note in the instructions. I also specifically used Biscoff Spread vs. Trader Joe’s this time since the TJ version has coconut oil in the ingredients […]

Cookie Butter Brownies

My cookie butter craze is has now taken me down a chocolatey path that I know Angel is very happy about. As much as she enjoys pumpkin, she has a chocolate heart, or just an intense love of chocolate. I wanted to not only do the cookie butter frosting, but have some of that delicious […]

Molasses Sugar Cookies

I don’t think I realized how much I loved molasses sugar cookies until making this recipe. I haven’t made a molasses sugar cookie since I before I was married so it has been at least 8 years. What I wanted was a soft and chewy cookie that had that good molasses bite to them. I […]

Homemade Oreo Cookies

I’ve made several different homemade Oreo cookies recipes over the years. None in recent in years simply because in the end they were too sweet, which is crazy to admit as a recovering sugar addict. I mostly used the Devil’s food boxed cake method and did either buttercream or cream cheese frosting to fill. I […]

Cinnamon Streusel Mini-Loaves

I found this Martha Stewart recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake and it used a round flute pan and was loaded with pecans. While I love pecans I’ve used I wanted to do this without the pecans. I also didn’t have a round flute pan, but I figured I would take a stab at this. […]

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

I just can’t help myself. I think I have enough pumpkin recipes and then I keep wanting to make new things using pumpkin! What got me onto this idea was I saw an old high school friend had posted about eating pumpkin snickerdoodles and saying “where have you been all my life?” With a comment […]
