Chocolate Mocha Muffins with Reese's Peanut Butter Chips


I love a cup of coffee in the morning with a chocolate muffin.  They just seem to go together. Coffee with chocolate gives me that extra boost of energy I need to get moving.  I usually eat half of the muffin for breakfast and then finish the rest for a quick afternoon snack.  
Mocha added to a recipe means coffee of some sort.   If I have coffee leftover in a pot from our morning coffee, I just pour it in a jar and place it in the refrigerator.  Then, I have it available for recipes I might make later that week.  It will store in the refrigerator up to a week.  
The coffee flavor should be subtle. It should enhance the flavor of the chocolate and not overpower added ingredients. Chocolate Mocha Muffins with Reese's Peanut Butter Chips is one example of using coffee with chocolate.

People always love getting cookies and boxes of homemade candy right up to Christmas and through to the New Year. Don't wait to start baking.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies using Pillsbury refrigerated dough!


Peanut Butter Cup Cookies look fancy but they are far from being complicated cookies. My Mother made these when I was growing up, especially at Christmas. They still remind me of the times we spent together in the kitchen during the holidays. I have continued to make them for my own family through the years and they have become a favorite cookie for our Christmas Gift boxes.

Classic White Cake and Buttercream Frosting for our Thanksgiving Dessert Table


White Cake is an American Classic. Growing up before bakeries were in grocery stores, I have memories of a particular bakery in our town. They made the most delicious baked goods. In our family, you knew if you had a celebration, your cake would be coming from there. This Classic White Cake reminds me of those from my childhood.
