Marble Bars

by Heather Harris Brady I’m back! I know, right? It’s been a long time. The truth is, my son’s been home for a few weeks and while I’ve been cooking it’s been his favorites, all of which are already on the blog. So I gave myself the time to enjoy having him home again. It’s…

Oatmeal Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady This cookie is not a cookie that has oatmeal, it is an oatmeal cookie where the oatmeal is primary, thick and chewy. It’s based on a recipe given by America’s Test Kitchen. Mine do not have raisins, because getting a raisin when you are expecting a chocolate chip is one of…

Ginger Creams

by Heather Harris Brady I’ve never an actual copy of Farm Journal magazine, but I LOVE their cookbooks and whenever I find them in antique stores I buy them. This recipe is based on one from their Homemade Cookies cookbook, and if you can imagine a Lofthouse molasses cookie this would be it. They are…

Apple Pie Bars

by Heather Harris Brady It’s hard sending a child to college, it’s harder still when they come home down two jean sizes! So part of the reason I don’t post as much lately is simply that I spend a lot of time baking and mailing. While I do bake a lot of my son’s favorites…

Secret Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady These cookies are a little kooky for me, but I guess sometimes I’m as susceptible to the charms of decorations as anyone else! And, if you can’t go all out during the holidays – when can you? These cookies are really all about fun, fun on the outside, fun on the…

Soft Lemon Poppyseed Sugar Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady Anyone who’s been with this blog through the winter holidays knows that I have the same cookie lineup every year, but I continue to audition new prospects because never let it be said that I’m one to rest on my cookie laurels 😉 This is the first audition – a soft…

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady First off let me note that I have not fallen off the wagon and gone whole-hog on the food coloring – that bright fuschia icing is from freeze-dried raspberries! I know, right? Perfect for upcoming holiday cookies! But I digress. This cookie story starts with a trip my little slice of…

Cheesecake Bars

by Heather Harris-Brady Thanks for sticking with me gang, while I get this off-to-college/graduation business sorted out! Here is a nice, quick little recipe that would make a lovely Mother’s Day dessert to have with tea or coffee. It’s super easy, a great one to do with the kiddos. You can vary the flavors with…

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady Thanks for sticking by me everyone – it’s going to be a rocky road until June I’m afraid post-wise, as I mentioned earlier I have a son ready to fledge and we are going through all the college signups at the moment with graduation hot on its heels. I do think…

Holiday Biscotti

by Heather Harris Brady If you see the word biscotti and automatically picture those behemoth jawbreakers in the cannisters at the coffee shop, let me just say, these are not those. These are both crunchy and tender, and are gone in two-three bites. Because of their small size they are just as at home on…

Brownie Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady Good news! The days of agonizing over whether to make brownies or cookies are over. Sometimes you CAN have the best of both worlds. These cookies bake up thick and chocolately. If you like them fudgy, take them out when the center is still a little bit glossy. If you like…
