As has been an ongoing effort on this blog, we often try to share recipes for using our Sweet Jumbles marshmallows. Today, we tackle the traditional favorite of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry – aka Neapolitan. Continue reading

Bacon Toffee Cookies

Have you gained your COVID-15 yet?

Toffee Bacon cookies (3)Like many, I’ve been doing a lot of baking during the shut-down, and this Bacon Toffee Cookie is based on several other recipes that I came across and modified into one new cookie.  Clearly, not something for vegetarians. Continue reading

Marshmallow Peanut Butter Cobbler

Marshmallow PB CobblerIt’s something like day 742 of the shutdown, and I found flour, so I’ve been baking.  I’m running low on butter, so we’ll see how long the baking lasts.  My sourdough starter is taking forever to expand, which the interwebs claims is not a problem, and since I’ve got all the time in the world I’m rolling with it. Continue reading

Vanilla Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

PB Frosting (1)I have lots of time at home to bake, which is I guess a silver lining at the moment….  The Quarantine Fifteen is coming fast.

This recipe is for a standard vanilla cupcake with peanut butter frosting.  Let’s be real, the point of this recipe is the peanut butter frosting.  I highly recommend you put it on any and all of your favorite cakes.  It makes everything – even a global pandemic – slightly better while you are eating it. Continue reading

Chocolate Whiskey Cake

Chocolate Whiskey Cake 2Early March was a long time ago, wasn’t it?  My thoughts were certainly not on quarantines and social isolation.  But, I did know that St. Patrick’s Day was coming up.  I found a bottle of whiskey at my home.  I don’t know when or how I came to possess it considering the fact that I don’t drink whiskey.  It’s OLD.

Warm Vanilla Cakes

Warm Vanilla Cake (2)Single- or small-serving dessert recipes are often hard to come by.  But if you just want something for yourself, or you and your +1, it’s often impractical to bake an entire cake.  It’s not uncommon that I find myself either taking a pie to work because I wanted one slice, or I have tons of cookies in the freezer to eat one or two at a time.

Lemon Meltaways

Lemon Meltaways (3)Although I am making these cookies for Christmas, the fact is that Lemon Meltaways are perfect year-round. In the wintertime, they are a great complement to a cup of hot tea, with lovely citrus notes that offer a change to the typical peppermint and cloves that we enjoy so much during the cold months.  But, in the summer, too, these pair well with lemonade or fruit, a great snack while sitting outside watching the world roll by.
