Pumpkin Butter Oatmeal Crumb Bars

After making these with apple butter, I found pumpkin butter at Target and decided that I need to try pumpkin. You can also make pumpkin butter at home, though that kind of ruins the quick and easy part of this recipe. These come together so quickly and make a great […]

 
Breakfast

Apple Cider Donut Muffins

Adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction These are so much easier and so much less mess than deep frying! I’m not sure if they’re healthier with the butter and sugar, but they are easy and delicious to make at home. If you can’t make a trip to the apple orchard, these […]

Prosciutto and Gruyere Croissants

Adapted from Alexandra Cooks Smoked Ham Croissants Croissants are so flaky because they laminate thin layers of butter between layers of dough many many times. Bakeries have huge machines that help make the layering of the butter between the dough much easier. At home, it is more time consuming and […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackle Cookies

Adapted from Reeses Chip Crinkle Cookies These did not turn out as pretty as the picture on Hershey’s site for me (they looked more like little hockey pucks) but they are absolutely delicious! I usually make a large batch like this recipe and then freeze half of the prepared dough. […]

Apple Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This is a variation on my favorite Oatmeal Cookie. I love them with Reese’s Pieces and Peanut Butter Chips, but sometimes you need to try something a little different, and I’m so glad I did. I saw these Cinnamon Chips at Target in the fall baking aisle, and immediately knew […]

 
Salads

Quick Thai Peanut Salad

This is a healthy and quick weeknight meal that you can throw together in only a few minutes. I tend to not use the included wonton strips because this salad is so delicious and crunchy without them. You can certainly customize this to your own tastes by changing out the […]

Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars

Adapted from Platter Talk Oatmeal Apple Butter Bars These bars come together very quickly and are such a great thing to bring for a fall potluck, for tailgating, or for a treat after the kids come home from school. These are also amazing with caramel and/or ice cream on top. […]

 
Breads

Artisan No-Knead Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Adapted from Jam Hands Chocolate Orange Bread I posted about the amazing Chocolate Orange Bread before, but with the fall, I was craving cinnamon and other warm flavors. So, I decided to adapt that recipe to make a crusty bread with cinnamon and raisins. This makes AMAZING toast with butter, […]
