Desserts, Cookies, and Cakes

This is a delightful chocolate chip cookie recipe that makes small,
perfect cookies with a slightly chewy crunch. Two tips I found helpful
are don't put the dough on hot cookie sheets or they will spread out
flat and become tough; and don't make them too big or they will do
the same thing. Enjoy!

A nice, light, fragrant summer pie. It may seem difficult with its two layered filling, but it’s really easy. Unlike many other recipes (custard for example…or some cakes)  in which the egg yolks are the main star and the whites are confined to am eternity in a tuppaware in the fridge, this pie uses the yolk and white of the whole egg. Convenient.

Once you’ve made it once, you can reduce the sugar each time you make it until you find the right level…then you can make it for breakfast.

This is an easy recipe idea. Brandy or whiskey bonbons, as we know them, are chocolate truffles filled with sweet liquor that gushes out when the shell is punctured. This isn’t quite so feasible at home, so we offer this easy alternative.


(Warning: please be aware that some people are very weak to alcohol, and even a miniscule amount can make them sick. Make sure that whoever you plan to serve them to knows their own alcohol limits.) (more…)

This is a great and easy way to use up cold brown rice leftovers for a hearty breakfast.

Blend cooked brown rice (hot or cold) with milk to make an oatmeal-consistency cereal. Heat in a saucepan and add some margarine, brown sugar, cinammon, rasins, bananas, or whatever topping you like, and serve with milk like oatmeal.

It tastes great cold as well. Chilled in small cups, sweetened with brown sugar and topped with berries, it may well even pass as a desert.

For Celeste’s 16th birthday I made a tasty brunch of the most tender crepes ever, mouth watering freshly made strawberry sauce, vanilla yogurt, and turkey sausages. Yum!

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it is simple and takes hardly any dishes or clean up. (more…)

Yesterday we picked up a donation of about 40 crates of strawberries. As such, I’ve been trying to figure out ways to use them up. Because of that, this and any other recipes from me in the near future will probably involve strawberries.
