Oatmeal Blondies

Oatmeal Blondies by Farrell May Podgorsek

I couldn't decide what to make one day. Did I want Blondies or Oatmeal Cookies. Why not both? The bars came out exactly as I wanted them to. Moist on the inside like a good Blondie should be, with a nice chewy texture from the rolled oats. I made these with chocolate chips and cinnamon, a great combination. Other nice additions would…

Bavarian Apple Torte

Bavarian Apple Torte by Salad Foodie

There are gazillions of recipes on the Internet for Bavarian apple cheese cake or torte, but most are sweeter than typical German pastries. I prefer this recipe posted several years ago by a lady from Germany as it makes me think I'm eating authentic German torte. It is certainly sweet, but not overly so, and not rich and heavy with…

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake

Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake by Salad Foodie

Let me say right up front - fruitcake gets a bad rap. My theory is that many object to the darker types, with lots of spice and molasses. Or the sheer size or amount of this rich cake is enough to last folks til next Christmas. You will be pleasantly surprised though with Mrs. Harvey’s White Fruitcake. In the ’50s, Lucile Harvey…

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

An absolutely wonderful cake; most traditionally served without icing. If you're including kids, might want to add your favorite, but I love it the "old school" way!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars!

Lemon Pastry Squares (a.k.a Lemon Brownies) - a new take on Lemon Bars! by Salad Foodie

This recipe has been circulating around the Internet as “Lemon Brownies”, but I think it deserves a more descriptive name. These treats are a delicacy and are more “dainty” than brownies. They have no chocolate, are not brown, and NOT as sweet nor…

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.
