Nutella Cookies – 3 Ingredients!

August 12, 2013

Digital Camera
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Nutella
1 Egg

Preheat oven to 350. Makes 24 cookies on ungreased baking sheet.

Combine 3 ingredients to form dough. It will be a dry and dense dough. I recommend using your hand (keep one clean, silly. You know the phone will ring.) This will go quicker with mixing it by hand IMPO.

Place one inch balls on cookie sheet and press/flatten a bit with a glass.

Bake for about 8 minutes.

There are different variations out in cyber space. Some call for adding 1/2 cup of sugar. I prefer them without. If you have a really really “bad” sweet tooth, go on and add the sugar. I do not believe they need it. Yummy!

Soda Bread – 45 Minutes – 4 Ingredients

December 22, 2012

I do not know where this recipe originated.  It seems EVERYONE but me knew about it already.  Me, I’ve never eaten soda bread, much less baked any.  It said if the dough doesn’t feel right add a tiny bit more buttermilk.  Well, I’d never touched the dough, so I decided a slightly sticky yet somewhat dry dough made with exact measurements was “right” and it sure tastes good.  This took 45 minutes from “getting stuff on the counter and mixing by hand” to “putting finished loaf in a basket on the counter. I was patient for 10 minutes before hitting it with a bread knife and a wee bit of Nutella.

soda bread


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 375 and lightly spray (cooking spray) the bottom of your pan.  Mix your ingredients.  Shape into a loaf and place on your baking sheet or pan.  I centered it in an oval in a 9 x 13 pan.

What you see was taken from the oven is just 40 minutes and I’m going for seconds after I post this.  Yum.


Mindlessly Simple Pumpkin Muffins

December 8, 2012

Okay, I admit it.  Overnight I’ve gone from “what is the name of heaven is Pinterest?” to “how did I ever live without it!”  So, I just read a recipe which is so mindless, quick, not high cal, and sure to be yummy.  I’m not going to the grocery store tonight so I can say I tasted these muffins yet, but they have 2 ingredients, yup.  One yellow cake mix and one can of pumpkin.  You got it.  Bake 20 minutes at 350.

I repinned it from a friend’s board . . . wow, I’m speaking a new language.  lol  Anyway, here’s the link the recipe came from which seems to lead to other recipes if you want to wander.  Click here.  Put the water on, you’ll want a cuppa with these.
