Thanksgiving Planning!

Hurray! Thanksgiving is just around corner!!! Actually it’s practically upon us! Yippee! Imagine my excitement!

I love baking for the holidays! How about you?

I already planned what I want to bake for Thanksgiving!

Here’s my little list for this years’ Thanksgiving besides the main meal:

1.  Pie

2. Pie

3. And….Pie 🙂

6. Sweet Potatoes with marshmallows on top (this isn’t exactly a dessert)

I want to bake three different kinds of pies (I won’t tell you want kind they are yet) I’ll post about them though so stay tuned.

So what  are your plans for Thanksgiving? Are you baking/cooking anything extra special? Are you trying anything new or are you sticking with your old recipes? What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish? Are you a turkey fan or do you love dessert time?

I would love to hear from you my readers, this is a time for all those who never ever commented, but who are reading my blog on a regular basis, to drop a note. 🙂



Snicker Cookies!

Recently I shared with you about how much I love cookies! Well, it looks like it’s time to do cookies again. 🙂

I usually just make chocolate chip cookies, but this time since we had a few extra snickers I decided to try cookies with chopped snickers in them. They came out quite good!

Besides the normal snickers, I also used the almond snickers

Here’s the recipe:


2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 pinch of salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

Chopped Snickers (as much as wanted)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, oil, sugar, and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and mix. Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in the chopped snickers. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 min. Enjoy!


A Quote Worth Repeating…

I saw this in the bakery I went last week and it made me smile….

” A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand”

On a scale of 1-10, how much do you love cookies?

Personally, I would rate it a 10++. 🙂
