I first had these cookies at my grandma’s house probably 35 years ago. I think the recipe was one of my aunt’s not sure but all I know that when I take a bite of these cookies I am back in my grandma’s small kitchen in Hebron, ND. Where I would wash the dishes with [...]

I express love through my cooking….just ask my friends and family and my waistline! So when I go to a friend’s house I like to bring a treat to share or a bottle of wine. Finding something that takes a few minutes to prepare and finding all the ingredients in the house are sometimes a hard [...]

Baked Pears With Vanilla Mascarpone

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on February 16, 2011 in Family, Food, life, Moms |

I have fallen in love with Poached Pears.  My love affair started just a few months ago with a salad that I had at a local restaurant called Maxwells.  That salad had poached pears that were to die for.  I first tried making poached pears in January in the slow cooker and they were divine.  I learned a few [...]

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on January 23, 2011 in Family, Food, Moms |

How do you pick which cupcake to make from this cupcake cookbook?  The beauty of the “Cupcake From The Cake mix Doctor” is right in the title….cakemix.  I love the fact that a simple cake mix can be turned into 135 different kinds of cupcakes.  There are few colored pictures in this cookbook, but I don’t [...]

Oatmeal Bars With Chocolate-Covered Raisins

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on January 20, 2011 in Family, Food, Moms |

Chocolate Filled Monkey Bread

Posted by Melissa Schmalenberger on January 19, 2011 in Family, Food, Moms |

Now this is a cookbook that I could learn to love, “Chocolate American Style“.  It had more than enough choices for us….like Oreo -Crusted Chocolate Mousse Tart or White Chocolate-Pistachio Biscotti.  We settled on Chocolate-Filled Monkey Bread on page 57.  You see, our family likes monkey bread.  I like making easy monkey bread, and let me tell [...]
