Bechamel White Sauce

Hello! Oh my, its been an entire day since I posted… :O Last night I made dinner for my family and used this basic sauce as a base for a potato bake I will be posting later. I have used this recipe in a variety of recipes and it has always worked out. Hopefully you get as much use from it as I do.

As for the lack of pictures,I got the most pictures I could at the best quality I could but because it cooks quickly and you are stirring or adding most of the time, it was difficult to get any. Sorry I could not get any more, but hopefully this will be just fine.

Bechamel sauce is really a plain white sauce just waiting for flavor. It is super simple to make and done in minutes to be put on pasta, be baked into something like this potato bake (will be posted soon) or drizzled on a meal. No matter what you use it on, it will always be the same base.

Egg-less Cookie Dough

Happy Easter(ok… it’s a bit late)! To celebrate, I have created a recipe for homemade cookie dough and even made truffles. These are super easy and my first no-bake recipe.

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am still continuously cooking… I may or may not have made cookies despite it being Passover and I’m not allowed to eat anything that rises… Unfortunately, I’m not very good at remembering not to eat bread and baked goods… So of course, I made cookies. These cookies are just how I like them, nice and crispy or warm and soft when they are straight out of the oven. My favorite part is the fact you can always play around with them. Add mini chocolate chips… Or swipe a little bit of nutella in the batter and some white chocolate chips and you have chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips. There are endless ideas and you already have a base recipe. Assuming you enjoy crispy cookies as much as I do… If not, I will post a recipe for chewy cookies some other day. For now, we shall enjoy the crunchy goodness of this sugary treat.

Simple Tie Dye Cake

Hello! I am attempting to catch up on everything I’ve been too busy to post! I made this right before Passover for a friend and made sure to take pictures of this delightful cake. It is a simple white cake that you can easily make into practically anything. Not to mention, it’s very simple so you can always have your kids help out with some of the batter in a smaller bowl. 🙂 If you end up doing the tie-dye they can even help you figure out what colors mixed together makes another color. It can be a learning experience as well as a fun time. 🙂

You will need sugar, butter/margarine, eggs/applesauce, vanilla, baking powder, flour, milk and food coloring.
