No Bake Fudgy Toffee Bars

Yesterday was Halloween and I had the traditional Halloween chili bubbling away in the crock pot when I realized that I did not have a treat made for Halloween! No treat on Halloween? Something had to be done. So I did it. I made these beauties which are now my new favorite no bake treat. … Continue reading

Snickerdoodle Apple Cobbler

The hubs loves stuff like this. Me? Not so much, I’d rather have a piece of chocolate cake but I love him so I make him desserts like this every now and then. He said it was really good! It has a sugar cookie topping instead of a regular cobbler biscuit topping and I think … Continue reading

“You’re a Peach” Cobbler

I spent the first 7 years of my life in a little town in Massachusetts called Hardwick. Hardwick has the oldest fair in the United States, it’s been going since 1762! I have fond memories of the fair from my childhood. And I won a blue ribbon for zucchini bread when I was a teenager, … Continue reading

Because I want to share with you something that I started doing last month during quarantine, I call them “Penny’s Porch Treats”. Once a week I make treats, bag them all individually, and then put them on a … Continue reading

Toffee Pecan Skillet Brownies

This is what I made myself for Mother’s Day dessert and it was magnificent!  It will definitely go into the regular rotation which is the highest praise I can give it.  The hubs has already requested it for Father’s Day. Even just the brownies themselves looked pretty great before all the other deliciousness got added … Continue reading

Disney Parks Churro Bites

UPDATE (to post below) I got a bigger tip and the churro bites came out much better!  I ordered this one from Amazon and it was perfect for churros, as you can see when looking at the two pictures.  They turned out almost just like the churros you get at Disneyland and not like churro … Continue reading

Triple Chocolate Scones

Here is the next and third entry in the Quarantine Scone Off.  These were really good, really chocolatey but not very sconey so I would put them in third place. However, I would make them again because of the chocolate factor! 2 cups flour 1/2 cup cocoa 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking … Continue reading
