    Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

    No bake cookies are great with chocolate or peanut butter! These peanut butter no bake cookies are so soft due to the quick oats versus rolled oats. I’ve always had great success with Jamielyn’s savory and sweet recipes. What stood out to me with this recipe, was how she used quick oats instead of old fashioned for these no bake cookies. I couldn’t believe how much softer the recipe was with these type of oats! On the stove top on medium heat, melt the butter, milk and sugar together. Let it bubble for 2 minutes before removing from heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla in the hot pan and stir. Next, add the…

    Chocolate Cookies with White Chips

    I have to be honest. I’m not a chocoholic. I love chocolate treats, but I don’t really crave chocolate. That is, until I made these chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips. Hands down, I can’t say no to these cookies. Every cookie is super soft and fudgy. Days after I make this recipe, they are still just as soft. I usually warm them up for 15 seconds in the microwave the day after I make them, and they taste like I made them that same day. The hardest part of this recipe is letting the batter firm up in the fridge for a few hours. -Mix room temperature butter, white and brown sugar…

    Buttermilk Pancakes

    Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Garden. I must admit, I’ve never been a breakfast person. Once I learned how to make a pancake the proper way, I haven’t gone back. The key is buttermilk in the batter and butter on the hot pan. This recipe is great with so many additions. In our house, we usually do chocolate chips or whatever berry is in season or on sale. In one bowl, combine the egg, oil, and buttermilk. **Buttermilk substitute- For every 1 c. of milk, add 1 tbsp of lemon juice. For this recipe, it would require 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice.** Mix in a separate bowl, sugar, flour, salt, baking soda,…
