Oatmeal Cinnamon Buttermilk Waffles

I’m not sure why but, this time of year I really, really need breakfast food. Need it. Hearty stuff, too.

Stuff that weighs you down and fills you up all day.Waffle Time!So this weekend we had our second annual waffle breakfast. Very fun and an easy way to entertain. Just borrow a couple of extra waffle makers from party guests and set out some waffle batter and imaginative topping. The rest takes care of itself. Let everyone loose in the kitchen and they cook their own breakfast while you sit back and enjoy your coffee! Ahhhh. . .I love to entertain like this! Read the rest of this entry

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I love a good truffle. All kinds. And since it’s the holidays, I feel justified in making them because I can give them away and not eat 3 dozen by myself.

Chewy Giant Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is it just me or is Christmas barreling down on us?

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I suppose it’s because Thanksgiving was so late in the year. It leaves so much less time for holiday baking. Thank goodness my Christmas cards are done and most of my shopping is done.
