Good Morning and Happy Monday! Today’s festive recipe will hopefully make the holiday baking bug start to bloom. That’s right, we’re making peanut blossoms today.

The chocolate was perfectly melted over a wonderfully warm peanut butter cookie. What’s better than that?

Sassy Cinnamon Muffins

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This week I thought I would revisit a recipe that truly lives up to its name – Sassy Cinnamon Muffins. When I was younger, I always helped my mom bake and these muffins were a firm favorite. It was a recipe that my mom made in home ec and kept ever since. One day I wanted to make these muffins by myself. I gathered all the ingredients, leveled out my measurements and put those muffins in the oven. Much to my surprise, they did not rise to the occasion.

Browned Butter Chocolate Bar Cookies

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to take a step back this week and just make some cookies. These are good for those cosy days that you really want to take some time out and make a little something sweet. From browning the butter to chopping up the chocolate, it’s all about slowing down. These have the warm kind of sweetness that caramel has from the browned butter.
