cream cheese frosting

We've hunted high and low for a cream cheese frosting that is "thick enough" for our preferences -- like decorating cake kind of thickness. This seems to do the trick for us. We use it for homemade oreo cookies too.  read more »

We decided Friday that despite lacking a box mix for homemade oreo cookies, we might still be able to come up with a way to make homemade oreo cookies. We rarely have cake mix boxes on hand, so we sadly rarely make oreo cookies. This time I was determined we would fix this problem. Starting from a devil's food cake recipe from scratch, we altered things until we found a good cookie dough. This seems to be a keeper.   read more »

lemon bars

Stumbled on this recipe online, and the pictures looked enticing. So we made them, and boy are we glad we did. Most lemon bars we've sampled tend to overcook the edge pieces and leave the middle pieces gooey, but this recipe evenly distributes the crispness on both top and bottom while leaving the perfect amount of goo on the inside. These are the best lemon bars we've ever had.

I had heard tell of such a thing as monkey bread, but I used father's day as an excuse to actually look up a recipe or two and try it out. Soooo good. Why didn't I try it before? Reminds me of my friend Amy's "caramel rolls" recipe, with variations on the theme.  read more »

granola

My friend Amy Wiltbank gave me this delicious recipe for granola. I think I made one or two alterations (based on various other granola recipes I researched while I waited for our next grocery trip to pick up missing ingredients). So yummy. I didn't even know I liked granola!  read more »

A hearty snack/meal from Brasil. I think it is best served with tobasco sauce. Rebecca likes cream cheese on hers. Meu Brasil tem de tudo!  read more »
