Triple Chocolate Muffins

J got it in his head a few weeks ago that he wanted to make muffins. At first he told me he wanted strawberry, but I convinced him Daddy like chocolate muffins the best. I didn’t want anything too “naughty” for me, so I headed over to Cooking Light’s website and found a recipe for …

Rosettes

Since Thanksgiving Day is all about the huge dinner, I try to make breakfast pretty simple. But Christmas is another matter.

Crepes are one of those things that sound fancy and complicated but are actually pretty easy to make. So, when J asked me to make some the other day, I figured why not. Normally, I make them for breakfast and let him spread sweetened cream cheese and jelly on them, but this time I thought I’d …

Easy Cheese Danish

Those packaged cream cheese or fruity Danish pastries are one of my guilty pleasures, but they are a bit out of my price range. And they aren’t all that great for the waist line either, so they are a rare treat. The following recipe isn’t exactly healthy, but they can be made reduced fat and sugar. Plus …

Monkey Bread

I have no idea why it is called Monkey Bread. It doesn’t look like a monkey, it doesn’t have bananas in it. Wikipedia, doesn’t know either but conjectures that it looks like a Monkey Puzzle Tree. Okay, if you say so. Basically it is a yeast dough, cut into bits, rolled in cinnamon and sugar …
