Coconut Chocolate Pecan Bars

When you are shopping for the ingredients necessary for this recipe – which if I had to guess ( based on what was in my grocery cart) you will only need to gather a bit of unsweentened coconut flakes and more butter – you should probably also grab a roll of TUMS.   I am not sayingContinue reading “Coconut Chocolate Pecan Bars”

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread…. It is a basic.  A summer staple.  Late summer.  That time period that we are inching closer and closer to with the dawn of August upon us.  Zucchini will be overwhelming our gardens and CSA bags for weeks to come.  We will be gifting zucchini in the coming weeks to neighbors, coworkers, strangersContinue reading “Zucchini Bread”

Walnut Brownies with Flaky Sea Salt

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

‘ You could use these as bait for any kind of trap‘. A compliment from a grateful co-worker as he stuffed perhaps his third of what would ultimately become eight cookies by the end of his shift, into his mouth.  Side note – I often pray to the high heavens for his metabolism. I amContinue reading “Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Chocolate Glazed Walnut Brownies

I know.  What the world needs is not one more brownie recipe.  I think perhaps finding a renewable energy source would rank above brownies…however I have the ingredients and the know how for brownies at my fingertips.  How to harness wind power and sunlight and redirect their energy to power say my car or toasterContinue reading “Chocolate Glazed Walnut Brownies”

Peanut Butter and Cracker Ice Cream Sandwiches

Does September (or the end of August if you are from these parts) feel more like the beginning of a new year…  a true fresh start…more so than the first of January?  Perhaps it is how a new school year coincides with a progression of seasons.  There is a noticeable shift in the universe.  A changeContinue reading “Peanut Butter and Cracker Ice Cream Sandwiches”
