Candied Pecans

Maple glazed pecans in a blue dish

I was able to make it to Costco this past weekend.  I haven’t been since before Christmas (October to be completely truthful), and my full cart and bill proved my poor Costco attendance.   I don’t buy everything at Costco, but the one thing I love to stock up on while I am there are almonds and pecans.

Salted Caramel Butter Cookies

Salted Caramel Butter Cookie

I felt the urge to bake this weekend.  I guess it is my version of cabin fever.  Now that spring is right around the corner I have a burning desire to whip up sweet treats.  Or maybe it is because Christmas is so far in my rear-view mirror that I can justify baking again?

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Cookies on a present

With the holiday season in full swing, it is time to think about Christmas baking. I know a lot of people have already started….but the problem I have with starting early, is that Jamie and I raid the freezer of our sweet treats, and we end up having to bake twice as much!

Connie Squares

I had mentioned before that Jamie and I are moving and my cookbook collection has been carefully packed away, so besides the internet, the recipes I have at my disposal are from two cookbooks. So here is another one from The Designing Women Plain & Simple Cookbook that Laura recently gave me.

As I was flipping through this book, I was surprised to see a recipe called “Connie Squares“. Well, of course I am going to share this with you, it is almost like destiny 🙂

Coconut Macaroons

Jamie and I are in the middle of getting ready to move.  In preparing our kitchen, and my precious cookbook collection, I left out only a few cookbooks and packed away the rest.  What that means, is in the next few weeks be prepared for a spike in recipes from Make it Paleo appearing on Ruby Reduction 🙂

Oven Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I spent this Saturday taking a cooking course from Le Cordon Bleu.  The ingredient du jour was pumpkin and other fall harvest vegetables (spaghetti squash and butternut squash).  I was very excited to take this class, as I love cooking with pumpkin.

The class didn’t disappoint!  I came home with Béchamel topped ham stuffed with pumpkin and Emmental cheese and spaghetti squash topped with Alfredo sauce.  Needless to say, I consumed a lot of cream, cheese and butter this weekend 😉

Oatmeal Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies

These past few weeks, I have found myself craving oatmeal raisin cookies.  It must be a signal that my body wants to go into hibernation mode and stock up on hearty foods (I said hearty, not necessarily healthy! 😉 ) It is a common site for my 3pm coffee break to see me happily eating an oatmeal raisin cookie with my delicious concoction of half coffee/half hot chocolate with double milk.
