Why This Blog?

Welcome!

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!

New Recipes!!

Hello all!

If you're a subscriber to my Face Book page, you may have noticed that I have recently tested some recipes from other blogs, and then posted the links to them with my recommendation. In the past, when I discovered a yummy recipe from another blog, I would type up my own original post about it, and put it up on The Big Green Bowl. I always provided a link and credit to the original recipe blog where I found it. While I'm sure this is perfectly acceptable and I know it is done all the time, I have decided I am not going to do it anymore.

I will still share recipes from other blogs with you, I just won't rewrite them.  I will post the links on Face Book, or will do something here on the blog with photos and links.

If you have not "liked" The Big Green Bowl on Face Book, this is your chance! Please click on the FB button to the right so you won't miss out on any more great recipes!

So! Here are links to three desserts that I have made recently, that knock the ball out of the park! Seriously, I have made each of these recipes twice, they were that good.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge
This is my own photo... Isn't this fudge gorgeous? And it tastes as good as it looks! If you are a person who likes to eat the cookie dough while you are baking, you will love this fudge from Buns in my Oven. My kids and their friends could not get enough of it.

Iced Oatmeal Cookies
I did not take a photo of these cookies but trust me, when you click on the link you will see why I recommend these cookies from Shugary Sweets. They taste even better than the store-bought version of spiced oatmeal cookies with icing. They are soft and chewy and just... Mmm...!! I took the first batch to a BBQ and they were gobbled up. Took the second batch to work and same thing. SO GOOD!!! I will be making these regularly.

Finally, here is a recipe for No-bake Butterscotch Pretzel Bars from My Biscuits are Burning, that are just DIVINE. Yummy little bars that are sweet and salty goodness. They will remind you of a Butterfinger candy bar without the bothersome "stuck in your teeth" feeling. And you don't have to put them in a hot oven! Perfect for the summer.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you try any of these recipes and what you think. By the way, I had to change the permissions in my comment section, due to an incredibly high volume of SPAM in my email inbox. I hope you will still leave a comment -- you just need to type in that annoying little code. Or you can leave a comment on the Face Book page.

Happy Baking!

  2. I think that's a great idea Michael Ann. I've had to make some changes in the way I present other blogger's recipes too. The fudge looks fantastic - so glad you shared!
