What’s Cooking? December 11, 2019

Layer upon layer upon layer of flaky biscuit!


From the English Kitchen, a PDF of an old Robin Hood Flour recipe booklet.



From a new to me site, A Coalcracker in the Kitchen, “Five ingredient Kolacky cookies”.  I think I’ve seen other versions of these soft, floury, filled cookies as well.

I’m in a mood for gingerbread lately, so these Gingerbread Muffins with Lemon Glaze from Sally’s Baking Addiction sound appealing.  I think I would not use the lemon for the glaze, however.  Maybe a nice dollop of Cool Whip instead.



Be sure to keep some ribbon candy around over the holidays!


I was just talking about how nice it would be to have a waffle iron, and that you could use them to make sandwiches too!


I love Rosettes, but they seem a bit tricky to make.


Good thing!

Card Making Begins!

Always fashionably late making my Christmas cards, I’ve found all my stickers and clip art and rubber stamps and embellishments galore and am ready to begin!

I’ve had to scrunch all of my crafting supplies into my craft room, if you can imagine how tough that is.  Making a crafting surface available, whoa. Good thing I can do almost anything when I’m really determined.

Here we go.

Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer

I’m not quite sure what I think of this.  The music seems more 70s than 80s.  The mystery return of Steve Trevor…dodgey, but I’m happy for Diana.

Is your kitchen ready for Christmas?


An unusual gingerbread sculpture!

A Giant Alien Xenomorph Made Out of Gingerbread


If you’ve a few leftover mashed potatoes this holiday season, just two cups will get you some tasty potato cakes.



Betty Crocker uses a pack of cookie mix and their frosting mix to make little trees dipped in warmed frosting.  It sounds and looks simple! (Till you drop the cookie in the frosting bowl).



This fudge from Sweet Tea and Cornbread looks like brownies to me.



These Christmas Muddy Buddies from Plain Chicken are so festive!   I like that you can choose to use just one kind of Chex cereal instead of three.  A few people in the comments had trouble getting the coating on evenly, but it sounds as if you just need to shake it thoroughly in the bag.


Just because mom would like it…


Taste of Home has a big list of cookies to make ahead, chill, then slice and bake.

When Your Pie Is Too Bubbly!

I didn’t realize my pie would bubble over the side. Sure is smoky in here!  Even if a bit of cleanup is called for, isn’t this a lovely pie?

My recipe card says it’s from Moms Who Cook.  I couldn’t find Moms Who Cook, but the same recipe is at Moms Who Think, so perhaps they renamed themselves.
