PB & J Cookies

Last week I made that delicious peanut butter dip (click here to see that) and here I am again with another nutty recipe. I love peanut butter so much, I could eat it every day without getting sick of it. Today I have made these adorable jam cookies! I saw this recipe on instagram (link…

“Famous” Brown Bread (Cheesecake Factory copycat)

Is there anything better than freshly baked bread? Few things. Okay, well maybe there are lots of things. But freshly baked bread is definitely up there on the list. I bought a whole pound of yeast at the store (it was a good price) so there is a high chance you will see more breads/other…

Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Challah (Egg Bread)

I love challah. Being Jewish, I’ve eaten a lot of challah growing up. Can’t get enough of it. Funny though, I’ve never made it from scratch before. I should have gotten into the bread baking back when everyone else was doing it. Oh well, better late than never to get in on the action. I…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday! It’s going to be a good week. I say this because I’m starting it with some freshly baked cookies and that’s pretty awesome. It’s nice to start the week on a sweet note. These are the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I know they may look like regular chocolate…

(Easier than Pie) Soda Bread

I’ve never done much bread baking, I just don’t have the patience to wait for dough to rise or energy for kneading. But, when a quick bread or something similar comes up, I’ll happily make it. This Easier than Pie Soda Bread from Thug Kitchen cookbook seemed pretty easy and approachable to make. The recipe…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The holiday season is here. Chanukah starts tomorrow, so I’m super excited for that. I can’t wait to stuff my face with latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Those are the two most commonly eaten foods on this holiday. If you want to make your own latkes this year, you can check out two of…

Coffee Cake Muffins

TGIF! Got any plans for the weekend? Why not do some baking? I have the perfect recipe for you! I made these coffee cake muffins and they are the perfect afternoon snack! They are also a good light breakfast with tea or coffee. I got the recipe from damn delicious (link here). It’s been a…

Alfajores (Sandwich Cookies)

I realized this week, that I haven’t baked a lot recently. I’ve been making mostly dinners and easy breakfasts/snacks. But today, I changed that. I made a treat called alfajores (pronounced alfa-hor-es) which are sandwich cookies. I believe they originated in Spain, but they are very popular in South America now. The actual cookie is…

Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Like I alluded in my last post (Pesto Spaghetti Squash), I am doing themed fall recipes (this week and next week). This week I am using APPLES! 🍎🍏 Apples are such a versatile fruit because they can be used in sweet and savoury recipes. The first recipe I have for you is a cinnamon-apple cake….
