Double Iced Brownies

My friend Rhonda always makes brownies with a white icing in-between the brownie & a chocolate frosting & my daughter Jacki really likes them I am not sure if this is the recipe she uses. This brownie recipe is quick & easy to make. Advertisements

Pumpkin Muffins

Why is it that we usually only eat pumpkin foods in the fall? I suppose that pumpkins go along with Halloween & the spices in pumpkin baked goods are “fall” flavours. And of course, maybe Starbucks had something to do with it offering their pumpkin lattes in the fall!

Mom’s Apple Cake

With the abundance of apples at this time of year & the Jewish New Year approaching, baking an apple cake seems like a very good idea. There are so many great apple cake recipes… this cake is the one my mom used to make. Diced apples are layered between a simple white cake.

Honey Cookies

I saw this recipe for Honey Cookies on Facebook maybe a couple of years ago. They are sweet, coated with sugar which makes them crunchy on the outside, chewy inside & just plain delicious

Pick up some fresh peaches at the market & make this delicious Peach Cobbler! It is simple & very good. Serve it with ice cream or not…..

Ricotta Gnocchi with Corn & Tomatoes

These homemade ricotta gnocchi looked like they were going to be difficult to make, but you know…they were not! It was actually a pretty quick & simple recipe… & it seemed like a restaurant dish! We enjoyed a delicious glass of red wine with it while sitting outside on a lovely August evening.
