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!

Happy Baking!

  5. Those rocky road candies look super delicious.

  6. YUM. My grandmother used chocolate chips. Also an easy recipe, though. And also, by the way I can't "follow" maybe because i use a different blog host? I can follow other wordpress people but dont see that as an option. I'm sure we can figure this out....

  7. OOH! I just pinned this to my other addiction Pinterest! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend! Following you now via GFC and FB.

  8. Candice, thank you for pinning!! Morning Grouch, I bet you are right. Now that Wordpress doesn't allow GFC, maybe that is it? Shoot! Thanks for trying though.

  9. Yummy.

  12. Yummy and looks easy enough too! All these sweets are making me hungry! Thanks for sharing at Mrs Foxs Sweet Party :)

  13. OK, Woman, I actually tried these and they were not only easy (for me the non baker) but they were also a huge hit. Loved it and a keeper. Many thanks!

  14. Oh my, these do look good! I know a few people who would LOVE them!

  15. I've made this with regular Hershey Bars but have to try it with the Hershey Bars with Almonds, sounds like it would be yummy!

  16. Throw in some crumbled graham cracker and you've got a twist on a smore

    1. As part of my nascent S'more Project, on facebook, I have chopped up almonds to spread on the chocolate layer of a s'mores. It worked quite well.

  17. This looks fabulous and definitely easy, thanks for sharing!

  18. Thank you for posting this! My mother-in-law makes this exact recipe but she never bothered to measure it out so her instructions were always along the lines of "Melt Hershey chocolate bars..." Me: "What size?" Her: "The big ones." Well there's not just one big size bar anymore so you can imagine how confusing it was. So thank you!!

  19. Looks perfect..i was looking for this kind of stuff from many days!
