Sunflower Brittle with bonus Peanut Brittle recipe

    Apologies for it being so long but I just have not had any good ideas for recipes and then my oven went out. Also, I don’t get paid for this I just do it for fun so forgive the long hiatus. This recipe is an adaptation of one I use every year from…

Apple Danish Bundt Cake

    If you love the sweet cream cheese and apple pie like centers of Danishes then this cake is for you. It only made it to the second day with two pieces left because my family descended upon it like locusts. This cake was going to be a banana cake to use up some…

Christmas Jam

I know what you are thinking! I know you are thinking that I am crazy for asking you to take the time to make jam! But you don’t have to can it. You can get those freezer containers in the canning section and just make freezer jam. And the other great thing about it is…
