• Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

    Posted on October 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    Another recipe from my grandmother that I am so glad she found and passed down. A kid who used to work for me absolutely loves these cookies, and once told me that they’re the best chocolate chip cookies he’s ever had. I passed the recipe on to him, too. I wonder if he ever makes […]

  • Baked Oatmeal, version 2

    Posted on July 1, 2009 by in Recipes

    This salad is not only pretty to look at and very delicious, it’s actually quite healthy for you! And it’s a good one to take to picnics because there’s no mayonnaise in it. It can handle sitting out for a bit without poisoning any attendees — always a plus, right? 1/2 cup extra virgin olive […]
