Molasses Cookies

December 15 , 2014 by Marga Munson - in Dessert, Holidays

There are a few ingredients in my pantry that get very little action over the course of the year. The star players like sugar and cinnamon are seen almost every week, but there are some bench players that deserve a little more credit than they are usually given. This is how I feel about molasses.

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate cookie? I mean really. And by the way, if you were going to raise your hand there, I’m not sure we can be friends any more. Chocolate might as well be an essential food group. Or at least, it is to me. These cookies are kick ass. They are […]

Are you guys ready for Hanukah/Christmas/Kwanzaa/whichever holiday you prefer? On the present front, Mike and I have been slacking this year.

Today is Thanksgiving. Every year, families and friends gather from far and wide to be together and celebrate life’s abundance on this day. It’s a really good time for reflection. Today also would have been my Pops’ 95th birthday. We lost him 8 months ago today. I think about him every day and the impact […]

As many of you know, I got a smoker this year. That basically means I’ve been making a lot smokey goodness for people. I figured since Thanksgiving is coming up, it would be AWESOME to try and smoke a turkey. First, smoked meat is delicious. Second, Thanksgiving is busy which means oven real estate is […]

Halloween is just about my favorite holiday. Plus, this time of year the weather is starting to turn cool, fall is in the air, and both Mike and my birthday’s are in the 10 days leading up to Halloween. It’s just always a great time. For several years now, I’ve been working on my spooky […]
