Lemon Cloud Tea Cookies


Lemon Cloud Tea Cookies


I was perusing Joy the Baker’s website a while back when I stumbled on these beauties.  They looked so light and delicate.  Perfect for nibbling on while enjoying a nice cup of herbal tea.  So, I made them.  Let me tell you, they are amazing.  They are everything you’d dream them to be.  Light, airy, with just enough lemon flavor.  I didn’t put a cross-hatch pattern into the top of my cookies, rather I just let them puff up, but I can’t imagine it would affect the flavor if you do.

You can find the recipes here, over on Joy’s website.

Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies


Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies

I’ve mentioned in the “About Me” section that one of the things I got after my grandmother’s passing was her hand-written recipes, most of which are for cookies and bread.  It’s the cookie recipes I cherish the most, but for as long as I’ve had them, I’ve not made anything out of them.

I decided to change that.  Recipe to follow.


Pumpkin Week(s): Pumpkin Flan

Leave a comment

There are a lot of typical desserts you can make with pumpkin.  Pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, etc.  Sometimes, though, you need something a little different.  Something rich, something sweet, something that really showcases the taste of pumpkin without it being cloyed and masked by heaps of flour.

I have your answer.

Chicken Pot Pie

One of my favorite cold-weather recipes is for chicken pot pie.  I love pot pie for the fact that it’s so versatile.  Any veggie can be thrown in and it will still be tasty.
