Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Christmas is right around the corner. Are you looking for a quick and easy cookie to make  for a party or just need another cookie for your cookie trays? These chocolate caramel cookies are perfect. All it takes is a Devils Food cake mix, eggs, canola oil, and a bag of mini rolos. What is […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These cookies pack a lot of flavor into a single bite or two. In the past, I made pumpkin spice cookies using pumpkin pudding mix, but I wanted to find a cookie with a more prominent pumpkin flavor. These fit the bill! I used milk chocolate chips […]

Puff Pastry Apple Roses

With the fall season in full swing, we always like to try out new desserts made with apples. I was watching The Chew one day and they made a rose with puff pastry and apples. They were so pretty that I decided to try my hand at making them, even though I usually prefer quick […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Chow Chow Recipe

Chow chow is a Pennsylvania Dutch pickled vegetable salad. It is usually made at the end of the summer or beginning of fall when the gardens are about done producing. My grandma Reitz made it and my mom made it when I was growing up. Now my mom and I make it together every year […]

White Sangria Popsicles #CookoutWeek

#CookoutWeek is winding down, and I’m looking forward to trying out the yummy recipes bloggers have been posting. I wanted to end the week on a sweet note, with a recipe that is great for a hot summer day. When it is 90° and humid outside, doesn’t a fruity popsicle taste perfect? And it’s even […]

Lemonade Cookie Cups #CookoutWeek

What’s summer without tall glasses of lemonade? It’s perfect on those sweltering days when even the AC can’t keep you cool. These cookie cups have all the delicious flavors of a glass of lemonade in a convenient bite-sized form, so they’re perfect if you want a dessert or snack at your next cookout. (They are […]

We’ve banded together with 50+ of our favorite bloggers to bring you yummy summer recipes (not to mention a cookout-theme giveaway), and today we wanted to get things started with a delicious pasta salad filled with fresh vegetables.

Mini Red Velvet Cookie Cups

Back in February, I made Itty-Bitty Strawberry Cookie Cups for #FoodBloggerLove, and the recipe was such a hit that I tried out some other flavors too. My husband Jim loves red velvet, so of course mini red velvet cookie cups went over really well in our house. He wished they weren’t so tiny, but that’s […]

Everyone participating switched names, and we were lucky enough to get matched up with Jessie Weaver aka the Vanderbilt Wife. I want […]

Old Fashioned Cream Cheese Dip

This Old Fashioned Cream Cheese Dip recipe was given to me by a family member over 30 years ago, and I still make it at least a few times every year. The dip reminds me of a thicker version of the dressing that is put on an Amish macaroni salad. It has diced onions, bell […]

Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Caramel is the ingredient for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge. It was a great choice from Victoria from The DIY Foodie. What to make? With the holidays coming I knew I needed a new cookie to try, since I am known as the cookie lady. I started searching on Pinterest and came across a version of […]

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes

The other day I made some pumpkin bread and I had some extra pumpkin puree left. Our family loves pumpkin bread, but I wanted to use the extra pumpkin to try something new. What to make with it? I only had a 1/2 cup left. Don’t you just hate that, when you only have a […]

Sour Cherry Almond Cake

This year my mom’s sour cherry tree was full of cherries. What to do with them all? My brother, his son, and Allison love, love, love cherry pie, so my mom freezes a lot of cherries to make the pie throughout the year. But since we had to many this year, I decided to go […]

Lindt Chocolate Truffle Cookie Cups

If you like to make cookies, here is a fancy cookie cup that isn’t hard to make but looks like you slaved away making it. The cookie uses three kinds of chocolate, (unsweetened cocoa powder, Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE milk chocolate and Lindt LINDOR truffles). Add this recipe to you cookie plates that you make up […]

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups #Choctoberfest

Everybody who bakes has a basic peanut butter cookie recipe that you put the Hershey Kiss on top. I also take the same recipe and put it in the mini muffin pans with a peanut butter cup in it. So for #Chocotberfest, I wanted to share a version of this recipe. They’re always crowd-pleasers. This […]
