Thumbprint Cookies – Coconut Style

Share List Mmmmm – I love thumbprint cookies.  Since I’m supposed to be losing weight – I don’t bake much….but it’s cool out these last few days, and I need to send a care package to my daughter who is a Freshman at Northern Arizona University – so I’m baking cookies to send in her box. Some thumbprint recipes don’t call for coconut, some want you to put a glaze >> Get the Recipe!

Cinnamon Ribbon Coffee Cake – Kinda Like Starbucks

September 3, 2015 Carrie Hill 0

Share List My husband fancies himself a coffee cake connoisseur – he pretty much loves anything that involves cake, cinnamon, and no frosting.  Today I had plans to make cookies – but that process was vetoed in favor of my cinnamon ribbon coffee cake.  I had to dig around to find the recipe I’d altered and adjusted to our tastes, but finally found it and currently my house smells divine. >> Get the Recipe!

Share List We love carrot cake – but this Easter it was just the 4 of us and I didn’t need a HUGE cake, because we really don’t need that much.  I had such luck with a pumpkin roll at Thanksgiving, I thought I’d try a carrot cake roll.  This cake doesn’t have the walnuts baked in, which was interesting because that’s a yummy part.  I decided to sprinkle the frosting >> Get the Recipe!

Share List I modified a recipe from to come up with these yummy cookies.  The vanilla pudding keeps the cookies soft – and the oat flour adds some texture to the cookie.  I LOVE the original recipe – but the nut lovers in my house wanted a bit of a variation – and I wanted to double it. My husband, who thinks most dessert is ‘too sweet’ likes these >> Get the Recipe!

Share List I got this recipe from my church’s 100th anniversary cookbook and it has been a favorite everywhere I have taken it. As an added bonus the dressing is good for just about any kind of salad. Also, it makes a great Christmas salad because of the red and green colors.

Share List These suckers are seriously easy, and amazingly tasty.  They have been nicknamed “Cub Poops” in my house, because upon seeing them cooling on a rack, my 12yo promptly blurted out, “Hey those look like bear cub poops.”  Boys have poop on the brain 24-7 – gross. I love these because they start with a box mix, but that’s where the “storebought” ends – adding a bit of espresso >> Get the Recipe!
