 This is my aunts go to recipe, such to the extent that now I just call it her stuffing. She normally makes these in muffin cups, "stuffin' muffins", and they develop a perfect crispy shell all over that you can't get in a pan. You can adjust this recipe based on your...

I made these lemon poppyseed donuts with my club, and I have to say out of the three donut recipes we made, these were by far the star of the show. These donuts are baked which gives them a cake-like texture. If you are a lemon lover I would highly recommend giving the...

I have to say these are my new favorite cookies. They have the perfect combination of chocolate and chewiness giving them a similar texture to a brownie. Since these are gluten free, they are easy to bring to events where people may have food allergies.

Just like some of the date ball recipes I have tested out, these energy bites also make a great snack. Instead of being sweetened with dates, they call for honey and you can always pick your add ins for desired sweetness. Pack these for snack or eat after dinner.

I don't have a dog (yet) but we take care of a dog often and I decided to make her some dog treats. Making your own dog treats is great because you know what is going into them. It is also fun to play around with cookie cutters (I used a heart and a stars). You are pro...

I was up in Donner Lake and although I didn't have most of my cooking tools I still managed to whip up something. High altitude can't even stop me! My grandma said "Giulia use the blueberries in the fridge" and from that request came these crispy buttery blueberry bars...
