Berry Cobbler

I still love berries as the weather gets colder. I did try this recipe in the summer when berries were in season but I think cobblers and crumbles are great in the fall especially served when they are nice and warm. Prepare some of your favorite berries. I used cherries, blueberry and strawberries In a…

Oreo Microwave Cake

I saw recipes of this cake on the internet and couldn’t believe that it only needed Oreos and water. I definitely wanted to try it for myself to see if it tasted like cake. I was very skeptical. This cake is easy to make. Begin by crushing up 15 Oreos. Place them into a container…

Almond Puff Pastries

My aunt usually gets us these almond paste pastries called Copenhagens. We loved them a lot and wanted to find a recipe that was similar but we couldn’t. I cheated a little because a true Copenhagen has a yeast based pastry and isn’t as flaky as puff pastry. Try this out and let me know…

Pineapple Turnovers

I often want an easy breakfast for those weekends when you are too lazy to make breakfast. This recipe hits all those check boxes. I had some leftover pineapple jam when I made Pineapple Tarts so I made some turnovers with it. You can use other jams as well or even some apple pie filling….

Baby Cereal Muffins

Transitioning my baby from purees to solids has been quite the adventure. Some days he likes baby cereal, other days he doesn’t. He’s currently in the mind set of “I want to feed myself” mode. So we’ve allowed him to explore more and more solids. One of the first solid foods I made was baby…

Sourdough Cinnamon Twists

I love cinnamon buns. They have the perfect combination of sweet brown sugar and cinnamon. I decided to use an old recipe and make it fancy by adding a twist. I first used a recipe that I made many years ago for a sourdough cinnamon bun and then instead of the classic rolled form, I…
