Today I’m sharing another Rerun with you, in cookie form. The Benne Wafer Cookies Recipe that I posted way back in 2010 is an oldie but a goodie. A real sweet goodie. Benne Wafers are a traditional southern cookie made with toasted sesame seeds, otherwise known as benne. These cookies are nutty and sweet and oh so perfect! Try to eat just one. It’s not an easy thing.

Peanut Butter Cake with Dark Chocolate Icing Recipe

This Peanut Butter Cake with Dark Chocolate Icing Recipe may look a little unassuming, but don’t let it fool you. It’s one amazing decadent dessert! Crazy good is what it is. Randy said it was like crack cake (mom, that means he couldn’t stop eating it—we don’t do drugs). And he has a pretty picky palate to please when it comes to desserts. Crack cake. Yep. It’s kinda like that.

Balsamic Beer Braised Pork Roast Recipe

pork roast recipe

After trying to many different pork BBQs over the years, he’s now kind of picky. He certainly has his favorites, but now (ahem) he has a new one: Balsamic Beer Braised Pork. I think I knocked his socks off with this one, y’all. And I’m telling ya, this recipe couldn’t be easier. We’ve tried all of the ways of cooking pork roasts over the years, some successful and worth the effort, while others were not so much, but this recipe for Balsamic Beer Braised Pork beats them all in my opinion. think our resident pork BBQ expert would agree.

Fried Pickles Recipe

It seems that just about every food known has been fried. Some successful. Others, not so much. Most fried foods I can take a bite or two and that’s enough, I can take it or leave it. but there are other fried foods, like mushrooms, onions, or these Fried Pickles have a flavor and texture combination that just seems right. And to take one bite or two isn’t the easiest thing to do.

Beer Braised Chicken Recipe

This beer braised chicken checks all the boxes. The flavor is fantastic and it’s easy as can be. You might have enjoyed beer-can chicken before. That’s the one where a whole chicken is roasted on top of a beer can on the grill or in the oven. Beer braised chicken is the same general flavor profile but there are a couple advantages. First of all you can choose which chicken parts to cook instead of having to cook the whole thing. Secondly, beer roasted chicken is never dry. Yes, flavorful and juicy. And no, surprisingly it doesn’t have a strong beer flavor. This roasted chicken is well-seasoned and not dry. Really good. Really easy. A real winner.

Comeback Sauce Recipe

I decided to make our own Comeback Sauce concoction so we only have to go as far as the fridge to get it instead of a drive-thru. I’ve made several renditions over the years, but actually took the time to write the ingredients and proportions down for this recipe this time. It’s a bit spicier, but just as addicting, perhaps even more so, than the original inspiration from down the road. The amount of spice can be adjusted to preference. If you don’t care for a spicy version easily cut the amount of hot sauce called for in the recipe below.

Rerun: Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

Looking back at some of the very first posts shared here on She Wears Many Hats is both frightening and fun. Frightening at the typos, and pitiful quality of photographs, and fun to remember making certain recipes for the first time. Like the super scrumptious Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache Frosting that I shared way back in August of 2009.

Easy Roasted Fruit Recipe

how to roast fruit

Fresh fruit is such a treat to enjoy, especially for a snack or at dessert time. One of my favorite ways to prepare fresh fruit is by roasting it along with a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar, then enjoyed warm all by itself or served over greek yogurt, ice cream or pound cake, or eaten alone with maybe a dollop of whipped cream. It is so simple, but boy is it ever so delicious! Not only is it delicious, but roasting (baking) deepens the flavors of fruits and vegetables, not to mention the added perk of wonderful aromas wafting throughout your home too. A much better fragrance than any air freshener you can buy, that’s for sure.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Homemade Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe is the Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe from Quaker Oats, only with chocolate chips substituted for the raisins. Not that we have anything against raisins. But chocolate is hard to beat when it comes to cookies. These cookies are chewy and light in texture at the same time, and oh so satisfying. And they do vanish rather very quickly.
