Peanut Butter Pancakes (with Blackberry Jam)

These might be my favorite of all the pancake recipes I’ve tried.  You know I love PB&J.  I love anything peanut butter, actually.  These pancakes are perfectly peanut buttery.

And they’re fantastic with blackberry jam.  I didn’t take a photo of a jam slathered pancake, but you can be sure that I ate several that way.  I drizzled syrup over the sticky stack too.  Delish!

Back in September, we had an Ingredient Spotlight: Peanut Butter.  Picture Perfect Cooking shared this recipe for Peanut Butter Pancakes.  The only change I made was to double the recipe.

Before we get to the ingredients, I have to wish my oldest daughter Happy Birthday!  How can it be possible that she is 21 years old today?

Back to the pancakes.  Here’s what you’ll need to make them:   [Read more...]

Slow Cooked Peaches and Cream Oatmeal

Waking up to hot oatmeal is a joy.  And this Peaches and Cream Oatmeal is absolutely scrumptious!  It only takes a few minutes to prep in the evening.  I use my small slow cooker with a cheapo hack to make it programmable.

This recipe makes 4-6 servings.  The leftovers heat up well in the microwave.  It’s thick after being refrigerated, but just add a little milk to thin them down.

Chicken Enchilada Soup in the Slow Cooker

This is a recipe that will be made often in my house.  My kids have been asking for it again already.

I first saw the recipe when Mary from Giving Up on Perfect linked it for Ingredient Spotlight.  I’ve since spotted it on Pinterest several times.  This soup is fantastic!  And it’s easy too.

I made just a few minor changes to the way Mary fixed it.  I doubled the recipe, which made a lot.  It completely filled my 6 quart slow cooker.   Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]

Baby Cannoli Cakes

You are going to love these!

All that chocolate ganache.  All that delicious cannoli filling stuffed in a chocolate chip muffin.

{Did she just say chocolate chip muffin?}

Yep!  That’s right!  This muffin has officially crossed the line into dessert.

I’ve been wanting to try this since I first made Chocolate Chip Muffins.  The idea comes from The Cake Mix Doctor cookbook.  I absolutely love that book.  Anne Byrn has a recipe in there for Cannoli Cake that is divine.

I have to say though, my family agreed that the baby cakes version is better.  The muffins are not as tender and sweet as the cake.  And muffins have a bit of a crust that holds up to the thick, creamy filling better than the cake does.  [Read more...]

Chocolate Pretzel Fudge

Fudge + pretzels = Scrumptious!

This is an easy fudge to make.  It’s a variation of Mocha Fudge.  Just melt the ingredients together and throw in a handful of broken pretzel pieces.  Lick the pan.  Then wait.  And wait.  And wait a bit more.

About 3 hours in the fridge later and it’s ready to cut and eat.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Muffins with Cocoa Coconut Streusel

The other day, I posted a list of 28 Muffins You’ll Want to Try and Terri left this comment:

Hi,
I was looking at your muffin recipes. They look yummy! I’m also looking for a coconut muffin maybe with mini choc chips added. Have you ever heard of something like that? I thought maybe replacing the liquid with coconut milk then add either maybe a streusel with toasted coconut and a drizzle of chocolate. What do you think? Do you have any suggestions? I have tried a couple of your recipes and passed on your site to some friends.
Thanks,
Terri

Oh, what a good idea!  I went into the kitchen and got creative right away.  These are the result.  The muffin is infused with coconut flavor and studded with mini chocolate chips.  The streusel topping has cocoa and coconut.  Oh yeah!

Maraschino Cherry Cake

Isn’t that the prettiest pink cake?

I’m not known for beautiful cakes.  They usually turn out lopsided with crumbs in the frosting.  So I’m really happy with how this turned out.

The idea is not my own.  I saw the Cherry Vanilla Cake on Jam Hands and couldn’t resist trying it.  I altered Ali’s recipe in several ways.  She used the seeds of a vanilla bean, which sounds scrumptious, but I didn’t have any.  I swapped water for milk and butter for oil.

And I decided to frost it with whipped topping.  My original plan was to use Cool Whip, but then I remembered a recipe shared a few weeks ago on Ingredient Spotlight for homemade whipped topping.  That’s what I decided to try and I’ll share the recipe on on Thursday. [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Muffins

I whipped these muffins up one night to snack on during family game night.  We were playing spoons, which usually leads to ice cream for some reason.  Then the next morning we have no spoons to stir coffee or eat cereal because they’re all dirty from the game playing, ice cream eating fun the night before.

But on this night, I decided chocolate chip muffins would make a fine snack.  I love baking muffins, because it’s so fast and there’s an infinite variety of flavors.  Needless to say, these were a hit.

I have some big plans for taking these muffins to a new level that involve cream cheese and chocolate ganache.  I’m waiting for a day when I can bake in the afternoon so the photos have some daylight.  We’ve had so much rain lately, I may have to settle for a dark day.

Back to the muffin recipe.  Here’s what you’ll need.  I didn’t grab a photo of the ingredients, but they’re all common items. [Read more...]

Scalloped Potatoes in the Oven or Slow Cooker

Sometimes you just need a choice.  I usually do homemade scalloped potatoes in the oven, but this time I needed to make them early in the day.

It was  one of those nights when you rush in the door at dinner time and need it to put itself on the table.

You know the kind.

Slow cooker to the rescue.  Again. [Read more...]

Goat Cheese Biscuits

I have been so excited to share this recipe with you.  In early March, I visited a friend in Chicago and she took me to Table Fifty Two.  The food in that restaurant has a decidedly Southern flair.   Chef Art Smith has been a personal chef to Oprah.  Now he creates dishes such as Fried Green Tomatoes with Feta, Pancetta, Red Onion Marmalade and Kalamata Olive – Amazing!

We sat in the main room of the restaurant where Goat Cheese Biscuit dough was being poured into hot iron skillets and baked in a brick oven.  Our server brought us a serving of the biscuits to share.  Oh my!  They are light, with herbs and goat cheese inside and buttery Parmesan topping.

As my friend and I savored these biscuits and I watched the process of making them, I was pretty sure I could recreate the recipe at home.  And I was right.

These would be perfect for an Easter dinner or brunch.  And they are easy to make too.  The dough is similar to drop biscuits and it can be baked in an iron skillet, ramekins or muffins tins.   Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more...]
