Molasses Crinkles

This is another one of my holiday favorites – soft, chewy, bite-size molasses cookies.  I can’t remember how I happened upon this recipe.  I first made them last year for Christmas and decided right then and there that I would be making them every year.  They are that good! Molasses Crinkles 3/4 cup soft shortening

Chocolate Shortbread Trees

Here’s a recipe for another great holiday cookie – Chocolate Shortbread Trees.  My mom first introduced me to these several years ago.  They are soft, delicious, and very easy to make.  I think the original recipe came off the back of a Land O Lakes butter box.

Zippy Black-Bean Burritos

Today I’m posting one of my favorite go-to recipes when I am in a hurry.  It came in handy this week!  The recipe comes from Cooking Light magazine and it is so simple and easy.  I also love the fact that it is a totally meatless dish.  It is just spicy enough, but not too much.

Rachael Ray’s Five-Minute Fudge

This simple fudge recipe is one of the best I’ve found. Funny, now that I look at my recipe – printed off the internet – I realize that I have been making this fudge for 6 years!  The date says 12/1/2005.  Wow.  That makes me feel old. Anyways, I happened to be watching The Oprah

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Since we had a few bananas past their prime today, I decided to make banana bread.  I noticed this recipe in Everyday Food a while ago and wanted to try it, but we didn’t have any oranges at the time.   Strangely enough, oranges are not on my weekly grocery list. Anyways, we were just

Easy Sugar Cookies

There hasn’t been much time for creativity today because my sweet girl is sick.  So, I’m posting a recipe for sugar cookies that I made yesterday for our church’s Christmas Eve Cookie Mission.  I promptly put 4 dozen in the freezer and hope to decorate them later. This recipe is one that I clipped out
