Mummy Bread

I feel like it is especially important this year to do more seasonal activities to help the year have a bit more order and fun. (Yes, order and fun can go together.) So, seeing mummy bread was perfect. It was something fun to make, but also something different. The bread turned out so fluffy and almost like a Danish because of the glaze.

Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 8): Fall During a Pandemic

I’ve mentioned how we have been trying to keep certain things the same for the kids as we celebrate holidays. Sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge to find workarounds, but we have managed so far this year. With Fall and Halloween activities, normally I plan lots of crafts, as well as a visit to the pumpkin patch (does anyone else feel huge relief after that trip? I always worry each year that we won’t be able to find a reasonably dry day, and this year we needed to worry about avoiding people), and of course trick or treating. What have we managed to do this year? Continue reading…

Junior’s Black and White Cookies

I have eaten these cookies, but never made them. I’ve thought about it, but it always seemed so complicated. After making the marble loaf, though, I wanted to try this.

Junior’s Marble Loaf

Today’s treat is brought to you from June. I was so excited to get this recipe book for my birthday because I had wanted it for YEARS. As in, back when the Fudgelet was a baby. But it’s all good because I have it now and I started baking out of it right away. I noticed that many of the recipes make big batches of treats, so you will find me making half recipes, like I did here. Instead of making two loaves, I just made one, which is plenty for us.

One Skillet Crispy Chicken

I can’t tell you how many times I have made this recipe. I often just make it without vegetables because I want the chicken, but you can also turn it into an entree and side dish meal.

Homemade Fast Tomato Meat Sauce

I almost made this a Wayback Wednesday post, but I decided that 1) There is no “way back” time frame when I have been making this sauce regularly for years and 2) It deserves its own new recipe post versus sharing small edits.

Wayback Wednesdays: Milk Bar Brownie Pie

After making the liquid cheesecake again, I finally used the remnants of it to make this pie. And once again, this was me remaking a recipe from years ago.

It’s fairly easy compared to most of the Milk Bar recipes, but my brain was being a bit slow, so I got confused. I barely had enough graham cracker crumbs to make the crust, mostly because I didn’t realize I needed some for the rest of the pie. But, it turned out fine, anyway.

There was one big difference I noticed…
