This month I was selected to peruse Julie’s blog – Little Bit of Everything. Julie is from Nebraska. She has an impressive collection of over 100 cookbooks! She has also written a cooking bucket list of 50 recipes she would like to try to cook or bake.
I enjoyed looking through her blog in order to find something to cook.
As always, I’m going to highlight 5 recipes with links that caught my attention before I share the recipe I decided to make this month.
- Pineapple Upside Down Freezer Jam – This recipe sounded so delicious! We love our jams and jellies around here.
- Watermelon, Basil, Feta Salad – When my friend came to visit a week and a half ago, I had a delicious salad at the one of the restaurants where we had dinner. Molly and I both enjoyed the salad. I’m glad to find this recipe.
- Baby Carrots with Dill Butter – Hubby only likes cooked carrots. This is another version of cooked carrots that he might enjoy having as a side dish.
- Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread – Sound delicious!
- Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake – Yummy!
This month’s recipe
So what did I decide to make this month? I decided to make Snickerdoodle Bars. My boys love when I make snickerdoodles for Christmas. So I thought this would be a great recipe that the boys would enjoy as a dessert for the week.
You could also make this recipe, cut into bars, and then freeze those bars for later.
