These are fantastic cookies that stay soft for days and days. Perhaps they are more adult friendly though. I can't remember what magazine my friend and I tried them from, but I won't ever forget the taste! If you can't find dried cherries, feel free to try a different dried fruit... perhaps cranberries. When using cherries, I cut them up into more palatable sizes, like the size of chocolate chips.
A wonderful treat for kids and adults. This recipe takes me back to falls spent apple picking. It seems someone was always making apple fritters and the smell of apple and cinnamon would waft through the air. These can be rolled in powdered sugar or granulated sugar.. try mixing some cinnamon in with the sugar for extra delight.
This zucchini bread is just amazing--you'd never know there are veggies in it! When I was first learning to cook, a beautiful Texan woman taught me a few things--one of them being this recipe. So, give it a try and enjoy! (Thanks Cindy!)
So easy...This is great for when you want the pleasure of a home made pie dessert without the work. Serves 2. It comes from the Best of Louisiana cookbook. I love it and use whatever fruit I have on hand. A raspberry/peach combo was nice the other day. See what you can come up with :)
Beets?!? To some they are scary tubers that stain everything bright pink, but they are really tasty if you give 'em a chance. This recipe is a classic Israeli side dish and originates in Tunisia (N. Africa) Serve alone or over greens.
A simple way to make yummy doughnuts. Let the kids join in the fun by shaking them in a bag of cinnimon and sugar. A special treat. Two people; one to drop the dough and one to turn and remove doughnuts is helplful. If alone, I suggest frying in batches.
