Witch Fingers Cookies for Halloween

Cakes and Cookies

Halloween is so much fun! I think I enjoy it more than the kids do 🙂
Pumpkin is carved; costumes are ready; all that’s left now is to make some creepy snacks to get in the mood.
The kids LOVED these and needless to say it was all gone an hour later 🙂

This recipe is both fun to make and fun to eat and can also be made with kids as it’s very easy to shape and only has a few ingredients.
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Apple Scones

Cakes and Cookies

Fall is here and with it the apple picking season. We went apple picking which means I have a lot of apples now, ready to be cooked, baked or simply eaten.
One of the easiest, least messy things to do with apples are fresh apple scones. There’s nothing like a hot, fresh scone along with a nice cup of tea on a cool fall evening. Read More

Mushroom Muffins

Baked Goodies

Muffins are traditionally known as a sweet treat. These muffins have a “twist” in them. Although they ARE muffins, they are made from cheese and vegetables and are perfect to serve as dinner with a nice salad on the side, a great lunch at work and a fabulous lunch bag “item” in the kids’ lunch box.
I admit – In my house they are the perfect to another boring vegetable pie and present a gimmick during dinner or lunch. I love these muffins and so do the kids! Read More
