    Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Coconut Oil

    Recently coconut oil has fallen back into favor after years of being the “bad” oil. I have been substituting it in some of my favorite recipes with great results. Try my Best Almond Biscotti and Best Ever Scones, using coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and butter. After making both of these with coconut oil […]

  • Best Almond Biscotti

    Best Almond Biscotti

    Nothing is better with a cup of coffee than biscotti. I have always been a bit afraid of making it. Not sure why, just thought it would be hard to make. I found a recipe on All Recipes and decided to try it. Not only is it delicious, but so easy to make. I revised […]

  • Russian Teacakes or Mexican Wedding Cakes

They are really an old fashioned cookie that has been around for a long time. Some people call them Russian Teacakes […]

  • Old Fashioned Norwegian and Swedish Cookies

    Years ago I belonged to this little country Norwegian Lutheran Church. Every fall the ladies put on a Norwegian dinner. It consisted of meatballs, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, rutabagas, and lutefisk. In other words a very White Norwegian Dinner. The highlight was the assortment of homemade Norwegian and Swedish sweets. They were all homemade by […]

  • Magic 6-in-1 Cookies

    I ran across this old favorite recipe recently and thought I would share it. It is a good recipe to have on hand during the Holidays. Also it is a great recipe for using up those little dabs of ingredients that aren’t enough to do much with. Ingredients 3 cups flour 3 teaspoons baking powder […]

  • Super M&M Cookies

    Here is another oldie but goodie favorite recipe of mine. You can’t beat good ole M&M cookies! These are soft and chewy and putting the M&M’s on top makes them pretty, too. If you are in a hurry you can just mix all the M&M’s into the batter at one time. Always use real M&M’s, […]
