Whole Grain Cherry Walnut Cookies

Whole Grain Cherry Walnut Cookies

In the fall and winter, I want cookies that seem to fit in with the season. Sometimes this means gingerbread and eggnog cookies, but other times it simply means I want something hearty with a little bit of spice to it. To me, a “hearty” cookie is one that delivers a lot of flavor and mix-ins in a small, single-cookie package. Many oatmeal cookies fall ... Read More »

I don’t mind artificial cherry flavor in a lollipop, but I don’t want ... Read More »

Eton mess is a very simple dessert that, by design, is supposed to be unfussy yet still perfect for entertaining. The dessert consists of a mixture of crumbled meringue and whipped cream, topped with berries or other summer fruits. The name may refer to the appearance of the dish – since crumbling meringue and tossing it in whipped cream certainly is a bit messy – ... Read More »

Cherry Chocolate Chip Bread

Cherry Garcia ice cream is one of my favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors. It is made with cherry ice cream that is studded generously with chunks of cherries and chocolate. This Cherry Chocolate Chip Bread is inspired by that ice cream – and by a huge basket full of fresh cherries that was sitting in my kitchen. The quick bread is loaded up with cherries ...
