Sugar Cookie Bars

Sugar Cookie Bars, I think these are fairly unknown outside of the US. That is, I have not met a person who was familiar with these. It’s like one giant sheet pan cookie cut into pieces. This is a recipe I have made for several years now. And I’ve made these cookie bars so often, it never occurred to me to actually right everything down and publish the recipe.

Lauren’s Latest

The original recipe is from an American food blog, Lauren’s Latest. It’s one of the first food bloggers I started following, about 6 years ago. When Lauren published this recipe a couple of years ago, I made them right away and it’s been a favourite ever since. In the original recipe, the sugar cookie bars are topped with icing, but I don’t think these cookie bars need that. I leave them plain. And with just a few minor adjustments, this recipe has become a staple in our house. read more

Halloween Treats

Halloween Treats

Tomorrow is Halloween night. Whether you celebrate it or not, it’s hard to ignore all the Halloween-accessories, costumes and candy that’s available in the stores. Now that it’s almost Halloween night, they sell everything at high discounts, as they won’t be able to sell anything after the 31st. Very tempting to buy all that stuff. But you can also make cute Halloween treats yourself. If you’re looking for some last-minute inspiration, I have a few nice ideas for you. read more

Star Wars Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies

StarWarsCookies

Star Wars Cookies? For real? Yes, for real.

That’s kind of the short version of my conversation with the boys when I showed them what I had made. Their eyes almost popped out of their heads when they saw them. Followed by questions and remarks in the range of ‘are these Star Wars Cookies?’, ‘are they edible?’, ‘are those real cookies?’, ‘can we have these cookies?’, ‘are they really for us?’, ‘wow, how did you do that?’, ‘you really made these yourself?’, ‘WOW’, ‘COOL’, etc. And now imagine two excited boys jumping up and down, talking simultaneously, that my ears started ringing. Get the picture? read more

Rice Krispies Easter Nests

Rice Krispies Easter Nests

These colorful little Easter Nests are definitely a kid’s favorite and so easy to make!

This can hardly be called a recipe, it’s more an edible DYI idea. Since it was such huge hit in our house, I simply have to share. This is really easy. You don’t have to be a good cook or baker to do this. And the kids will be so thrilled! The adults too, believe me. Had a hard time keeping my husband away from them 😉 read more
