This week I made some of the best rolls in the entire world! I made a Thanksgiving-themed dinner roll, also called Pumpkin Dinner Rolls.
These dinner rolls are awesome because they aren’t overly pumpkin-tasting. The perfect ratio of pumpkin to dough… just enough to make them tender. The recipe comes from a new cookbook that my mom had from Donna Currie: Make Ahead Bread- 100 Recipes for Melt-In-Your-Mouth Fresh Bread Every Day. There were a lot of recipes that looked good in this book, but this one looked the best! Read more…

This week I made some scary good Peanut Butter Cup Fudge!
It’s almost Halloween! Time to roam around the neighborhoods and pick up some free candy. My parents tell me I am too old to trick-or-treat, but who would turn down free candy? I am so tall that people will start thinking I am a parent in a costume… I guess I’ll have to walk around with a short friend and act like one.
One of the biggest problems after Halloween is what to do with all of your candy. There are many options, such as giving it to the homeless, eating it (also called gaining 20 pounds), and baking with it.. As you can see, I prefer the last one (even though I still snack on the leftover candy for a while longer). This recipe is perfect for leftover Peanut Butter Cups! You just chop them up and throw them in the mixture. And yes, it is that easy. Read more…

This week I made Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!
I have been jam-packed with homework and sports lately, so posting has been rare. High school is tough, especially when tennis is just ending and basketball is just starting up. High school tennis went very well, and I ended up as the #2 ranked player on the team at the end of the season! Now basketball is beginning, and lacrosse begins right after that. You could say that my schedule is very packed!!
These chocolate chip cookie bars look fantastic, don’t they?! Just like a normal cookie, but a different shape and a bit thicker. Read more…
