Cookie-A-Day – Day 10: Gingerbread People

Well, after the last 3 cookie recipes being flops, I finally had a success!  It is about stinkin’ time!  Since I was feeling a little insecure about my baking, I decided to use a recipe from Carol Fenster’s 1,000 Gluten-free Recipes to make these cookies.  Carol’s recipes have always worked very well for me, so [...]

Review: Gluten-free Pita Bread

Yes, I said “Gluten-free Pita Bread”.  I did not stutter.  I about fell out of my chair when I heard there was such a product on the market.  I knew that I had to get my hands on some ASAP!  I emailed Rami at GFL Foods, Inc and they happily shipped me out a package [...]

Weekly Menu Plan – December 13, 2009

This week has been full of baking disasters – 3 to be exact.  I posted about 1 of them here, the other 2 happened on Saturday.  Saturday I set out to make Sugar Cut-outs and Shortbread.  The cut outs all stuck to my non-stick cookie sheet.  I suspect that my running out of parchment paper [...]

Cookie-A-Day: Day 9 – Festive Candy Cookies

I started out my day yesterday with hopes of changing up my Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe to make it a little more festive. I thought that adding Mini M & Ms to the cookies would make them more festive. I got that butter out when I was making breakfast in the morning to let it [...]

Cookie-A-Day: Day 8 – Peanut Butter Cookies

An old favorite in our house – Peanut Butter Cookies.  I knew that this had to be one of the cookies that I included in my series.  These cookies are super easy to mix up and toss in the oven.  They can even be mixed the night before and then baked first thing in the [...]

Elf on the Shelf – Is he watching you?

I have heard about “The Elf on the Shelf” tradition for the past few years, however this is the first year we have had an elf.  Our elf showed up on December 8, 2009.  Hannah was thrilled to see the elf, but was worried that he would eat all of the cookies that I have [...]

Cookie-A-Day: Day 7- Almond Cranberry Bites

I happened upon this recipe in an Eatingwell.com email. The original recipe calls for dried cherries, but I didn’t have any so I subbed dried cranberries instead. This recipe screamed “Christmas cookie” to me, so I knew that I had to include it in my “Cookie-A-Day” series. This recipe is full of healthy ingredients – [...]

Cookie-A-Day – Day 6: Gingersnaps

I have been making Gingersnaps since I was a teenager. I loved to bake since I was old enough to understand how to work the oven & measure ingredients. I love to experiment with new cookies and this is one that once I made it, it became an instant family favorite. I love the crisp [...]

Weekly Menu Plan – December 6, 2009

Parenting a teenager is the toughest thing I think I have ever done.  We have had a rough week, but I have faith that consistency, patience & love will get us through. Weeks like that make you really appreciate the plain, “boring” and normal weeks as they go by, no matter how busy you are.  [...]

Cookie-A-Day: Day 5- Spritz Cookies

I have such fond memories of making Spritz cookies as a child.  My mom used to make it so much fun for my sister, Kelly, and I.  She would press out all the cookies with the ancient metal cookie press and we would then get to decorate them.  We used cut up maraschino cherries for [...]
