My grandsons and I made "Grammy Cookies". It is always more fun cooking with my boys!

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Ok, Chopper, what's a Granny cookie?

Today I made Alix's Cranberry Oat Squares using grape jelly. I used blueberry jpie filling the first time -- they were super. The grape is just as good. I put some of the oat mixture aside & made mini-muffin pan samples, using cherry jam for two, lemon curd for two, and orange marmelade for two. I really like the way these bite-sized ones came out and think the lemon was best -- the tartness worked so well. Now I have to try the original tart cranberry, which may top them all. Thanks again, Alix!
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

My absolute pleasure! That's a particular favorite of mine. I've tried almost every combo you can think of and I keep coming back to the cranberry. It just satisfies me completely.

My daughter (Bugs) was the baker in our house yesterday. She made chocolate oat chippers and they were fantastic. Better than mine! I think she has found her calling.

It's my bf's birthday tomorrow, and his family is coming up from the cities, so I'm making cheese cupcakes :) half of them will be turtle cappuccino cheesecake, and the other half will be chocolate covered cherry cheesecake. Mmmmmmm. I usually decorate with chocolate leaves, but I'm at a loss where to get leaves to use for a mold in the winter, without wrecking someones houseplants :: Will have to settle for chocolate curls. I have to make them tonight when I get home from work tho, or my bf will eat them!! Even though they are supposed to chill for 12-24 hours.

Bread. In-laws are coming tomorrow to visit and take our dog home to babysit him while we go away for a few days.
My Father in Law likes bread with his meals and we don't have any. I am not driving in to town to pick up a few buns so I put some dough on to make up a few dinner rolls. We can send him home with the leftover buns and I also have a Venison roast to give him. He like that stuff. I'm not crazy about it.

I'm also baking a bone-in ham for tomorrow to eat cold. I won't be here to cook for them. I have to take off to the city, right after work, to play at an Irish Pub with my son and his band for St Patty's Day.

Add two loaves of Pumkin Pound Cake. I read a recipe for Sweet Potato Pound Cake in a magazine, and seeing as I didn't have any mashed sweet potato, I subbed it for a can of Pumkin and it worked out great. It called for cinamon and nutmeg, so that worked fine with the pumkin. I figured that I may as well while I have most of the ingredients out already and the oven on for a few hours.
