Autumn Apples

from pumpkinfarm.com
October is here, and with it comes the smell of fresh, crisp air, the beautiful colors of changing foliage, and the sound of crows cawing. Pumpkin and apple picking are in full swing for the autumn season. And what better way to sweeten those freshly picked apples then to coat them in candy!
Caramel apples are a traditional fall-time favorite. The sticky sweetness brings back memories of my mother melting caramel in a double-boiler over the stove so that my sister and I could dip our apple slices into the warm, silky candy.

S’mores Cookies

With school already in session, halloween candy stocked on the shelves, and cooler mornings and nights creeping in, it sure feels like summer is coming to an end. This past Labor Day weekend, we had a cookout, which will probably be the last one for the year (at least at my house, that is). No more cookouts means no more toasting marshmallows over the grill to make s’mores treats. Of course, there’s always the microwave, but it’s never the same.
For those not familiar with what a s’mores concoction is: it’s a traditional snack/dessert (typically served at a cookout or campfire) that …


Oatmeal & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Once a month, I bake sweets and bring them to work to share with my coworkers. Shhh, they don’t know it, but they’re my guinea pigs, since the treats that I bring are usually from a new recipe that I’ve never tried before. Of course, if the results aren’t to my liking, then I don’t share them.
This week, I made oatmeal and white chocolate chip cookies, recipe adapted from ericasweettooth‘s blog, original recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. They are a little different from traditional oatmeal cookies; they’re thin, crispy, made with *white* chocolate chips and have a salty finish. It is …

Summer is well on it’s way and as I’m daydreaming of long days at the beach I can’t help but think about the ice cream truck that will soon be ringing it’s bell for all the kids to hear. Ice cream cookie sandwiches were always one of my favorite treats from the ice cream truck. The Cuisipro Mini …


Slap Happy

Last week while I was chatting on the phone with my cousin who lives in Salem, MA, she mentioned her newest kitchen gadget that she just can’t get enough of. When I told her that I’d never heard of it she was taken aback. So I did a little research of my own, and I, too, soon became seduced by the wonder of what is the Slap Chop.
A small, handheld device, with a hollow core and a W-shaped blade concealed within the body of the gadget, the Slap Chop minces and dices a plethora of foods. By “slapping” the lever on the …
