no-bake chocolate & peanut butter cookies

These are tremendously delicious cookies to make that will probably remind you of your childhood. I made them when we had no stove, and relied on the use of our microwave instead. They came out great! Please try them out for yourselves.

No-Bake Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies:

½ cup milk
2 cups white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
¼ cup cocoa powder
¾ cup butter
½ tsp salt
3 cups large flake oats

1. Combine first six ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add oats until well combined. (You can also make this in a microwave. Put first six ingredients in a microwave safe container and cook on high for about 8 minutes. Remove and add oats.)

2. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using a spoon, drop mixture onto wax paper. Put in refrigerator for 1 hour. Serve chilled.

simple valentine’s day trifles

Makes 2 servings

This is an extremely quick and easy treat to make for that special someone on Valentine’s Day. It is a dessert that won’t break the bank, nor will it cut into your already precious time. Place in champagne flutes for a special touch. It is impossible to mess up this recipe, and it is certified to be paid back in even sweeter kisses.

Simple Valentine’s Day Trifles

Ingredients:

¾ cups raspberries, fresh
½ cups Oreos, broken
Whipped cream

Steps:

1. Start by measuring the ingredients. You will need approximately five Oreos to amount to ½ cup of crushed cookies. Once the raspberries and cookies have been prepared, set aside.

2. Using the champagne flutes, fill each one with ¼ of the crushed Oreos. Place ¼ of the raspberries on top. Then add whipped cream. This should take you to the halfway point in the flute. Repeat once more. Then top with leftover crushed Oreos, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

vegan almond + blueberry biscotti

This is a different take on a traditional biscotti. It contains no dairy or animal products, and is rather simple and easy to make! Serve with any hot beverage.

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup almond milk
1 flax egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup blueberries
soy margarine (to grease)

Steps:

1. Combine the first 3 dry ingredients into a medium-sized bowl. Mix well.

2. Combine the sugar, almond milk, flax egg, vanilla, and blueberries into a large bowl. Stir until just combined. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients. Mix until a firm dough is formed.

3. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a baking sheet with soy margarine. Form the dough into a log, 6″ wide and 1″ tall.

5. Put the dough into the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes. Remove and let cool for 20 minutes.

6. Turn the oven up to 350°F. Meanwhile, cut the log into ¾” pieces. Place the biscotti back in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and let cool before serving.

recipe: apple and prune crumble

We are big connoisseurs of prunes in our household. Or perhaps I shouldn’t say “we” so much as Remy. We quickly discovered that if she didn’t consume prunes on a daily basis, she would not be able to do what prunes make you do that day. I realize that is too much information, but these things are important! As Stephen King wrote, “a regular man is a happy man.” Same thing goes for babies.

Remy ate pureed prunes on a daily basis from the time she started solids until she was a year old. It was dessert to her. Lately she hasn’t been enjoying baby food, and so we switched her to an all finger-food diet. Prunes are still too tough to eat when you only have four teeth, so we had to find a creative way to cook them for her. This recipe is the answer.

Apple and Prune Crumble:

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats
⅔ cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups prunes, sliced
1 cup apples, peeled and cubed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp margarine
⅓ tsp salt

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine prunes, apples, ½ cup brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon in a medium pot. Cook on low heat until apples are soft.

2. In a bowl, mix together flour, oats, 1 tsp cinnamon, margarine, salt, and remaining brown sugar. Set aside.

3. Pour the fruit mixture into a baking dish. Top with the crumble. Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Adding apples and turning it into a crumble ensures that babies and adults alike can enjoy it! Try it out for yourselves.

make these : donut muffins

Donut Muffins - 12Prior to giving birth to Remy, I went on a baking rampage. It was probably due entirely to my nesting instinct. It was during this time that I tried quite a few different recipes, especially when it came to muffins. One such recipe was donut muffins. I made them with my husband in mind, since he is a huge fan of donuts. He said that they were the best things that I had ever baked. I took that as a compliment.

Donut Muffins - 13This is how to make your own donut muffins. For the original recipe, click here.
