Patrick’s favorite apple crisp

It’s been SO long since my last post, please forgive the long hiatus!  When I started back at work, I found that the time I usually set aside for sitting down at the computer and writing my posts was gone!  I have really missed it though, and have been storing up lots of pictures and … Continue reading

PB and Banana Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I’m always on the lookout for recipes that call for over-ripe bananas and oats.  Somehow I seem to have an excess of both at all times!  These healthy chewy oatmeal bars from Sally’s Baking Addiction contain no flour, oil, or butter!  They are delicious and so satisfying.  The oats and peanut butter give these little … Continue reading

Grandma’s Christmas Applesauce Fruitcake

When we were visiting my husband’s family in Las Vegas, my mother in law asked if I wanted to make her mom’s Christmas applesauce fruitcake.  Did she even need to ask?  Of course!  That’s exactly the kind of thing I love to do 🙂  My mother in law said that her mom would make this … Continue reading
