Scrumptious Chocolate Layer Bars

This winter has been rough on all of us, health wise. Both Keith and Alex had the flu, which turned into pneumonia for Alex! I am still recovering from a bout of intestinal virus I caught more than a week ago although it would seem I have managed to fend off the insidious flu that […]

Brown Sugar Meringue Kisses

Today is supposedly “balmy” with a high of 18°F (that is approximately -8 Celsius, by the way). Despite the higher temp in comparison to the past week, it does not feel warmer at all! Additionally, a new batch of bitter Arctic air is heading our way, which is expected to plunge us back to the […]

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Remember the blueberries we picked a little over a week ago? They are all gone! We ate them in salads, as ice cream toppings, and as snacks…yum! :D In addition, I decided to use some to make these decadent blueberry cookies. The filling was full of summery berry flavor with a hint of citrus (and surprisingly not too sweet), and was sandwiched between crumbly, buttery crusts…so […]
