Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!

Super Easy Rocky Road Candy
I've been dying to share this recipe with you guys. I just needed to go out and buy some Hershey bars so I could make it. Yep! It's made with Hershey bars and it is THAT easy, my friends. Just melt some Hershey bars and add walnuts and marshmallows.
When I used to work at UC Davis, it was the custom for whoever was having a birthday, to bring a treat. I know...make the birthday person cook! But, it was a great way to get people to come visit you at your desk and wish you "Happy Birthday." My co-worker Donna, used to always bring this Rocky Road candy on her birthday, and I used to look forward to her birthday so much! :-) I finally asked her for the recipe and was astounded to find out how simple it was. I've been making it every Christmas since! You will WOW your friends and woo your enemies with this recipe, I promise!
Rocky Road Candy
17 oz (4 - 4.25 oz bars) Hershey's Milk Chocolate with Almonds
3 cups mini marshmallows
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Line a 9x9" square pan with parchment paper.
Break the candy bars into chunks and melt in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Add marshmallows and walnuts and stir til combined. Pour and spread into pan and put in the refrigerator until firm. Remove the whole chunk of candy from the pan, remove the parchment, and cut into squares. Done!
