Pumpkin Pie Muffins with Pecan Praline Topping

It’s autumn, and it’s pumpkin season.  I love this time of year, when pumpkins are in season, because I love pumpkin pie, cookies, scones, muffins, and the list goes on.   I’ve already shared my recipes for Pumpkin Scones, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Pumpkin Macarons, but this year I am sharing my recipe for […]

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

The other day I was making regular oatmeal cookies with raisins, and I thought to myself, why don’t I add chocolate and make chocolate oatmeal cookies.  Because I wanted a deep, well rounded chocolate flavor, and I love Nutella, I used 4 different chocolates (Nutella, cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and white chocolate chips).  I didn’t […]

Reese’s Pieces Macarons

Beer Bread

The first time I had Beer Bread was at Mission Ridge Ski Resort, and I loved it.  Which is interesting because I don’t even like beer.   After devouring my Beer Bread at Mission Ridge, I asked if they made it.  They told me that McGlinn’s Public House in Wenatchee makes the bread.  I knew that […]
