Homemade Danish Kringle

Kringle, a traditional Danish pastry (the word actually means “pretzel”) is one of my very favorite holiday treats. I used to only be able to find it at Christmastime, when we would go to Wight’s Home and Garden on the day after Thanksgiving and pick out a Christmas ornament. They would always serve hot coffee… Continue reading Homemade Danish Kringle

Classic Banana Pudding

It’s crazy to me that I’ve never put this recipe on my blog, because I’ve been watching my mom and my Nanny make this recipe my entire life, and eating it my entire life. Maybe I thought it was too simple to be considered a recipe. I don’t know. I do know it’s delicious. People… Continue reading Classic Banana Pudding

Snickerdoodle Blondies

You know that scene in Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap all over the chocolate cake so she won’t eat it?  I made the mistake of not sending these to work with my husband and I actually had to DO this with these snickerdoodle blondies.  They were THAT good.

S’mores Cookies

I love Memorial Day weekend camping.  Every year, we go with family and some of our best friends to a different campground, where we enjoy three days of sunshine, (God willing) tent sleeping, dirty feet, campfires, hot chocolate, and delicious food. I’ve been wanting to develop a s’mores type cookie for quite some time, and… Continue reading S’mores Cookies
