Banana ‘Cookie’ Bars

Hello! The other day I was expecting company, so I decided it would only be right if I baked some sort of good. Of course, my first idea was myย quick and delicious cookie bars. I begin to start the recipe and preheat the oven when I realize, we are out of butter. Of course, cookie bars cannot be made without butter, can they? So I decided to try. I used only banana instead of the butter and continued making the recipe. Not sure what to expect, when this beauty of a cake-y cookie came out, I was delighted. No one could stop eating these, and it’s probably more than half the fat my cookie bars are. Of course, that likely won’t stop me from making either again.

Here is the cookie bar recipe copied and pasted and changed slightly to be banana ‘cookie’ bars. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheese-filled Hamburger Sliders

Hello again. ๐Ÿ™‚ A couple days ago I made these cheese-filled mini hamburgers for dinner, topped with ketchup, cilantro, onion and cheese on a homemade sweet hamburger bun. They are likely closer to a meatball hamburger by the ingredients, but it is so delicious and perfect for this hamburger.

Easy Chocolate Cake

I have been having far too much fun baking. From baked pancakes to pretty chocolate cake, I have been spending most of my time baking. Today I made chocolate cake. The cake made the entire house smell so chocolate-y… It was fantastic. The only change I’d make to this would be to add chocolate chips for the full-chocolate experience… But that’s just me.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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