Cookie Week Begins: 7 Spice Cornmeal Cookies

Welcome to Cookie Week. This is our second year of what we expect to be an ongoing tradition around here. This is the week that many will begin planning (if not baking) for the treat boxes they will be shipping for the holidays. Last year we brought you 5 of our favorite cookies to ship […]

Treat of the Week: Pumpkin Spice Malted Milk Shake

I’ve got pumpkin fever. Nevermind that it is one of my favorite colors. Pumpkins are everywhere right now. I am dying to make some pumpkin cheesecake, whoopie pies, and more. But that will have to hold. This weekend we are having a little Halloween get together. I wanted to make something a bit unexpected. I […]

We have concluded our tribute to National Ice Cream Month. Hopefully, you found some new favorites here, here, here, and here. Ice Cream Month is always fun and I enjoy eating the results. Today we are shifting our focus to another food tribute. Tomorrow is National Cheesecake Day. After ice cream, that might be my favorite kind of holiday. There are […]

Our July focus for Treat of the Week continues with this ice cream offering.  Today we are giving you two treats in one. In order to make this ice cream, you will need a batch of CrispyThin Snickerdoodles. Fortunately, we have included that recipe, too. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies. Some folks like them a bit […]

Man Week concludes with our ‘Dad-approved’ Treat of the Week. Dad is sure to be pleased with this All-American classic… the fried pie. While the filling options are limited only by your imagination, we chose apple cinnamon. Fried pies or hand pies as they are sometimes called have been around for a long time. Most believe that they […]

I am a little obsessed with brunch these days. As a result, our offering for today is a treat that is perfect for breakfast or can be tweaked a little for the tasty evening treat. The ebelskiver (ay-bel-skiv-ir) is a Danish dish that is something like a puffy pancake.     If you’ve been following us for a while, you know how much we love to thrift shop […]

Treat of the Week: Carrot Cake Cookies

As holidays go, Easter sort of gets the short end of the stick. It has all of the makings of a great holiday, but never quite the same oomph. There is candy, a fun, lovable character, and customs and traditions. Yet it still seems to pale in comparison to Christmas and Halloween. As a boy, we always […]

Oats Gone Wild: Pomegranate Granola

pomegranate granola recipe

Day 11 of the New Year and we are all still trying our best to eat “healthy”.  There are many healthy snacks and cereals out there, but many are either over-processed foods or, if not, they come with a ridiculous price tag. Today we are making our version of granola that, although does have some sugar, […]

Treat of the Week: Mixed Berry Buckle

The first week of the new year is coming to a close and already I feel full of hope and promise for what is to come. If you are like me, you have much planned and already your list is longer than there is time to complete it. Lists are good, but only if they […]
