Savory Parmesan Biscotti

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 15th, 2018| Breads, Recipes

Move over breadsticks, savory biscotti are here.




You know how we put things into categories and then can't think of them in any other way? I previously had done this with baked sweet potatoes. They were for lunch or dinner. Sure, you could have sweet potato in your hash

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 13th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Biscotti with a nice holiday flair




This was the second type of biscotti I ever made, and I made them somewhere between November and December. The cranberries give it that holiday look and taste, at least in my opinion. More than that they're a nice treat option, as they

Apple Pie Cookies

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 8th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Lots of apple & cinnamon flavor; no fork required!




A little confession from yours truly: I am not a huge fan of pies. The issue for me is the pie crust. I find regular pie crust to be bland, just plain old doughy. If the pie has an interesting

Chocolate & Caramel Oatmeal Bars

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 6th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

They're made with oatmeal, so they have to be good for you.




This week I'm focused on oatmeal-centric baked goods. Coincidentally both recipes were sent to two of my favorite recipe testers, my kids. Although not my original recipes testers, as I have been baking since my early

Basically it's a creamy margarita for dipping fruit



Hey there, November! How'd you get here so fast? And why did you bring all of the cold winds and dark clouds with you?

There are two ways that I deal with this early onset of winter.

  1. Let soup simmer

Nectarine & Strawberry Salad with Mint

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 30th, 2018| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

Bright, fresh, and slightly sweet!


While we're a few weeks into my theme of fall foods, this recipe may seem odd. However, once in a while it is nice to mix things up; pretend that it isn't as chilly as the thermometer says. Food is one of the

Sweet & Salty Puppy Chow

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 25th, 2018| Desserts, Party Snacks, Recipes

Peanut butter and chocolate, allow me to introduce you to pretzels




You know those recipes that you've had for a long time that you just make on autopilot? Puppy Chow is one of them for me. Combine all of the coating ingredients, mix with cereal squares, and sprinkle

Puppy Chow Snack Mix

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 23rd, 2018| Desserts, Party Snacks, Recipes

Don't be fooled by its name; it's delicious!




I don't want to date myself, but I first had puppy chow, *gasp*, just shy of twenty-five years ago when I was a first year teacher. You'll read more about that in the story below. Moving forward to now ith kids

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 18th, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

As tasty as pumpkin pie but also acceptable as breakfast




Did I mention that I love cooking and baking with pumpkin? If you were unaware of this fact, you have been notified. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin parfaits, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin soup- I could continue, but I think you get the

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 16th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

The ultimate fall comfort food




We're deep into fall, which means it's time to embrace autumnal ingredients. I've shared sweet potato and apple recipes, and now it's time to highlight pumpkin. I love pumpkin-based dishes, both sweet and savory.

When I created this recipe, I wanted a bread pudding made

Apple Parfait- A Healthy Apple Dessert

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 11th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

A moderately healthy dessert that lets the apples shine




Continuing with my sad theme of no new recipes this week, I have another apple recipe from the archives. This is newer than Tuesday's Caramelized Apples but comes from the same category of "What do I do with all

Caramelized Apples

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 9th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes

Simple & sweet- what more could you want?




In a typical workweek, I leave a few blocks each week for recipe testing. While it's work, it's one of my favorite jobs. Unfortunately, my work/life schedule has been out of whack for a few weeks. Due to work and family
