Easy Chocolate Biscotti Recipe

Easy Double Chocolate Biscotti Recipe

Anyway, these guys make a great pair for sure, and you will find that this Chocolate Biscotti dunked in a great cup of coffee is no exception. No bland biscotti here. No siree bobtail. It is quite the perfect biscotti. It is rich, and chocolatey, of course with the satisfying crunch that biscotti delivers. It just begs for a good cup of Joe. You’ll see.

Marshmallow Creme Filled Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies

Marshmallow Creme Filled Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies

The nice folks from Pillsbury invited me, along with several bloggers, to create some great new cookie recipes for the holidays. I took the opportunity to enlist our teenage daughter to help create these Marshmallow Creme Filled Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies. They were easy and fun. Although they may look at little complicated, they’re quite simple. Really! The most difficult (if you can call it difficult) thing is planning extra time for chilling in between steps.

Oatmeal Pie

Oatmeal Pie

This week of pie recipes begins with an old-fashioned, yet new to me, Oatmeal Pie. I’ve had quite a hankering for a good oatmeal cookie for about a week now which made me wonder about making an oatmeal pie. I did a quick search for Oatmeal Pie, and of course it exists. What combination of food doesn’t?

Cream Scones Drizzled with Chocolate


One of the many recipes that I marked to try soon was Ree’s recipe for the Perfect Cream Scone. I’m not usually a scone fan, because I think they tend to be dry and crumbly, so I was happy to find this one slightly crispy on the outside with a soft, yet coffee-dunking worthy inside. I added a drizzling of melted chocolate to dress them up a bit.

Sugar Cupcakery, Milford Ohio


We had the privilege to meet Krista Tevar of Sugar Cupcakery and her team this past summer when we asked if she’d be willing to chat with us about the very sweet life in a cupcake shop . . . I say that somewhat tongue-in-cheek because I know how hard Krista and her team work…

Simple Nutella cookies and an invitation.


With only four ingredients, it doesn’t get much easier than these Nutella Cookies I found over at Tasty Kitchen. They really were quite easy to throw together, and they disappeared just about as quickly as they were made.

Decorating Cookies with Kids


This Christmas cookie decorating idea is a tradition that my good friend, Denise, shared with me last weekend. She and her daughter, Carrie, came over to show me how they decorate sugar cookies every year with special paint. This easy and fun cookie decorating technique has become a family tradition that Denise’s mother started many years ago. This tradition is truly simple and sweet.

Grapefruit and Lime Cake with a Citrus Glaze


Fresh citrus scents and colors have been on my list of must haves lately. Must be the ringing in the freshness of Spring. Anyhoo, I’ve been craving a grapefruit cake ever since I saw one in Thomas Keller’s cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home.
