Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies (No Eggs)

Posted by Honor on Thursday, May 29, 2014, In : Recipes 

    Does anyone else out there prefer cookie dough than to an actual cookie? Like, I'll whip up a big ol bowl of dough and only get about six cookies on the sheet because the littles and me have been 'taste testing' the dough to see if it needs a lil more of this (which is doesn't) or a lil more of that (nope, but just had to be sure... wink wink). If you do, hop on into by boat cuz I am always paddling towards that elusive perfect soft cookie recipe. I want a cookie that can hold it's shape ...

Baking Quest: The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted by Honor on Friday, January 10, 2014, In : Recipes 
Welp, it's official. I have either lost my mind or baby nesting has officially taking over all thought processes. One moment I am frantically scrubbing the sink, next I am outside yanking weeds leaving em on the driveway followed by intense list making and thumb twiddling as I go over and over my mental notes of "Need to get... have... must wash... don't need till later..."
 Poor Lou and Luke just don't know what to do. One moment I am full of joy and giddiness and the next I'm a cranky mess. ...

  After seeing my pinterest feed blow up with various holiday/gingerbread themed goodies I had a serious decorating/diy itch that need to be scratched. So a quick trip to Walmart to find graham crackers led me down the holiday novelty isle and to my delight I spied this festive kit. How perfect is this?! 4 pre-made gingerbread houses with icing and candies included. All wrapped up in a nice & neat box for a whopping $8. Yes only $8!

Pumpkin Cookies with Spicy Cream Cheese Icing

Posted by Honor Hansen on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, In : Recipes 

On a bit of a baking binge this fall season. Ingredient of choice? Pumpkin. I know crazy right?! If you missed it I already whipped up some Pumpkin Bread. But I still have three mondo sized cans of pumpkin puree to use so my pumpkin baking days are far from over. On the agenda now? Pumpkin cookies with spicy cream cheese icing. These don't require that much puree, so it's a great recipe to whip out when you have part of a can left over from a pie or whateves....

Moist and Easy Homestyle Pumpkin Cake Bread Recipe

Posted by Honor on Monday, October 14, 2013, In : Recipes 

Quite a name right??? But I feel that this ^^^ recipe deserves a nice and hearty (and accurate) name. As mentioned many times before I am a pinterest queen and it has quickly become my go to place for finding recipe advice/ideas/inspirations. But this fall season I have been a bit disappointed with the selection of pumpkin bread recipes. Most are some simple concoction of prepackaged spice cake mix and one cup of pumpkin puree. Too blah... not enough pumpkin... not enough spice or zest or cre...
