This is the first time I ever tried a blonde brownie, wasn’t sure if I would like it at first, but after taking my first bite…I fell in love! They are so moist and yummy! I went searching for blonde brownie recipes, I searched for cadbury eggs as well as I remember seeing something on Pinterest! Found the original source from bakeaholicmama!
Happy 3rd Blogiversary to Mom! What’s for dinner? 2 years on a group on Facebook and 3 years blogging, that is 5 years of sharing and creating!
I am so happy that you all have come along with me on this journey! Thank you all for coming by my site, and for following me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest! Your support, likes, comments, shares, mean so much to me! Most of all your friendship! I have got to meet wonderful people along the way…and have learned so much!
The blog has gone through some changes over the years, and it looks amazing now thanks to my friend Leila at pixelarcher.com, she is amazing and oh so patient…who knew designing a blog could be so much work!
Especially love the new logo, its my favourite part!:)
Ever since I seen these cookies on Pinterest, I have been wanting to try them out! It is quite a popular recipe! I noticed that others that tried this recipe, had different reviews and or experiences with it!
Some thought it wasn’t lemon-y enough, others that the cookies turned out fat and round not flat like the original, others said it wasn’t sweet enough that you need icing…so I took all this and more into consideration and decided to just try it out myself!
OK there is a new cookie in town and its yummilicious! First off the added pistachios just happened by chance, I had intended to add walnuts or pecans, I forgot that I finished all the walnuts when I made baklava last week, I couldn’t find the pecans….I keep all the nuts in the freezer…they were no where to find!
I was busy in the kitchen all day yesterday, roasting tomatoes, baked a sweet potato casserole, made beef and cabbage stew for dinner…with all this happening I decided to make mint fudge! I had some left over evaporated milk left from the casserole, and didn’t want it to go to waste!
How many times have I left the extra in the fridge just to forget about it, then it goes down the drain! Not this time…no no no…I used it up and made something delicious with it:)
These are one of my favourite cookies! I love meringue kisses! I love mint chocolate chips, if you can’t find any use dark chocolate chips and use mint extract or essence.
Oh Pinterest how I love thee…but this has got to stop! All these pictures of yummy food and desserts, I can’t keep up with it! I found this cookie on Pinterest and just had to make it! I followed the link to this blog othersideoffifty the recipe was an adaptation from nytimes.
The original recipe calls for bread flour and cake flour, plus it needs to be refrigerated for 24 hours! I dont have the patience for that….I love cookie dough so there is no way that would stick around…..so I improvised!
One thing you must know about me is that I LOVE M&Ms!! Since I was a kid they have been my favourite candy! I am trying to avoid unhealthy foods and food colouring is one of them, but this is my weakness! I can’t help myself, I just have to have them! One of my favourite treats is chocolate chips cookies….so I decided to combine my two favourite things!
Now I know I am not the first to come up with it…but the recipe for this chocolate chip cookie has been a secret till now! I started to make this cookie when I was 15 and yes you may have notice that I say that often…that is because that is the age when my mom stopped kicking me out of the kitchen, and let me bake on my own:)
I did however change some things as this past year I have stopped using margarine, and I am limiting my usage of shortening to recipes that I think really need it! Those 2 ingredients and butter were in the original recipe, I now only use butter. It changed the texture of the cookie a bit but its still yummy, you can use shortening if you like!:)
