Gingerbread Ice Cream

I love gingerbread. Gingerbread cookies, gingerbread lattes, gingerbread everything - love it! I've been meaning to try to make gingerbread ice cream since around Christmas, but I kept putting it off and forgetting and then I decided to paint my kitchen cabinets, etc. So finally this weekend I decided to make it. It turned out… Continue reading Gingerbread Ice Cream

Almost Bite-Sized Apple Pies

I had a few apples I needed to use the other day, and I'm a big fan of apple pie. I didn't have enough for a whole pie, so I decided to make these. I used my 3" ravioli stamp to cut out the shapes, and my pasta roller to roll out the dough. I'm… Continue reading Almost Bite-Sized Apple Pies

The Banana Nut Bread That Almost Wasn’t

As you might be able to tell from the uneven bake on these (top half lighter than the bottom) and the weird holes in the center of each loaf, this wasn't my finest work. Overall it tastes pretty good. The top half tastes really good! But this recipe needs some work. So what went wrong? I'm… Continue reading The Banana Nut Bread That Almost Wasn’t

Mom’s Fruitcake Cookies

We used to make fruitcake cookies every Christmas when I was little. My mom has come to visit the last several years for Christmas, and we've made them again every time. They're just so good! If you hate fruitcake, don't assume you'll hate these. They really don't taste like an actual fruitcake. The main similarity with… Continue reading Mom’s Fruitcake Cookies
