banana pancakes (healthier)

Andy has been eating these for the past month or so and just LOVING them.  True love.  But what used to be a cute and adorable desire for pancakes and waffles in the early AM (and my desire to find awesome healthy recipes) has slowly turned into a demand (on his part) and fatigue and…

things i love!

Stevers Candies chocolate marshmallows.  These are scrumptious!  Truly.  A family fave. Eyes light up when I bring these gems out for company.  Friends eagerly ask “did you make these!?”  I reluctantly tell the truth and say no…I didn’t, but they are better than any candy I could ever make. I often order gift boxes for…

peanut butter sandwich cookies w/milk chocolate filling

flour

Dry and tough cookies and cakes can be caused by badly measured flour.  Do not pack flour in (and shave with a knife) or shake your  measuring cup.  First aerate the flour with a spoon or whisk or chopsticks as Alice Medrich does.  Then lightly spoon flour into measuring cup – just filling it.

cinnamon roll pound cake

I made this a long while ago and although I don’t remember much as I age, I do remember this cake!  Sylvie does too!  Rich, moist, and laced so pretty and tasty with cinnamon, this cake is worth the small effort it takes to bake.  The glaze is truly the icing on the cake (in…
