Delicious and sweet, you can’t beat the flavor of oatmeal wheat bread! –Mellyn Continue reading
From Julie L.
We grew up eating these delicious oatmeal cookies! Now I prefer to skip the shortening and use beans instead –it makes me feel like I’m eating health food! I usually double the batch and freeze the extras for cookies on demand. It makes the texture less crunchy and more chewy. So good! –Mellyn
The bakery in my hometown makes the most delicious maple bars! So of course I had to figure out how to make them myself. After several tries, I opted for doughnuts over bars simply because it was hard to get the insides of the bars cooked without burning the outsides. We also opted for a little healthier, half-wheat version of the dough that is light enough my kids weren’t sure it had wheat in it! The maple glaze was the tricky part. Several pounds of powdered sugar later I was finally satisfied. Now I can have a bit of heaven no matter where we live! –Mellyn

I love making muffins on a cold morning. These warm up my kitchen and little tummies nicely. But getting out of bed extra early to prep them when my bed is so warm is not easy. I make them the night before instead. I follow all directions, pour the batter in the paper liners and everything. BUT I DO NOT BAKE! Instead I cover my metal baking pan with press and seal wrap and place it in the freezer. In the morning I pull out the muffins and set them on top of my oven while I preheat it. Then I bake! They taste fresh and warm. Occasionally a recipe needs an extra 2 minutes or so, but just test for doneness before removing from the oven. Continue reading
