Old Fashioned Cream Cheese Dip

This Old Fashioned Cream Cheese Dip recipe was given to me by a family member over 30 years ago, and I still make it at least a few times every year. The dip reminds me of a thicker version of the dressing that is put on an Amish macaroni salad. It has diced onions, bell […]

Chewy Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Caramel is the ingredient for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge. It was a great choice from Victoria from The DIY Foodie. What to make? With the holidays coming I knew I needed a new cookie to try, since I am known as the cookie lady. I started searching on Pinterest and came across a version of […]

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes

The other day I made some pumpkin bread and I had some extra pumpkin puree left. Our family loves pumpkin bread, but I wanted to use the extra pumpkin to try something new. What to make with it? I only had a 1/2 cup left. Don’t you just hate that, when you only have a […]

Sour Cherry Almond Cake

This year my mom’s sour cherry tree was full of cherries. What to do with them all? My brother, his son, and Allison love, love, love cherry pie, so my mom freezes a lot of cherries to make the pie throughout the year. But since we had to many this year, I decided to go […]

Lindt Chocolate Truffle Cookie Cups

If you like to make cookies, here is a fancy cookie cup that isn’t hard to make but looks like you slaved away making it. The cookie uses three kinds of chocolate, (unsweetened cocoa powder, Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE milk chocolate and Lindt LINDOR truffles). Add this recipe to you cookie plates that you make up […]

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Cups #Choctoberfest

Everybody who bakes has a basic peanut butter cookie recipe that you put the Hershey Kiss on top. I also take the same recipe and put it in the mini muffin pans with a peanut butter cup in it. So for #Chocotberfest, I wanted to share a version of this recipe. They’re always crowd-pleasers. This […]

Mini Chocolate Pecan and Walnut Tarts #Choctoberfest

Who doesn’t like chocolate and nuts together?  I think it is the combination of sweet and salty that we crave. Whenever I eat chips, I end up having a piece of chocolate to top it off. So for #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I knew I wanted to make a recipe that combines these two tasty […]

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes #secretrecipeclub

This month, our recipe for Secret Recipe Club comes from Maxine from Why Am I Not Skinny, which is a fantastic blog name. I like to bake and she has a lot of dessert recipes. It was hard to decide what to make. I finally chose her Cupcakes from Heaven, but her Upside Down Peach […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Sweet Strawberry Cream Cheese Cookies

Once again it is strawberry season in Pennsylvania. I was looking for a cookie recipe using fresh strawberries from my garden, and I came across this recipe from OMG Chocolate Desserts. I like soft and chewy cookies, and when I read the recipe, I saw it had cream cheese, fresh strawberries, and white chocolate. Those […]

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler #HotSummerEats

Sometimes, old recipes are the best. We love trying out new things here on The PinterTest Kitchen, but we also have a lot of family favorites – and we wanted to share one of those for today’s #HotSummerEats recipe! We’re nearing the end of #HotSummerEats, so wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Camilla […]

Quilting Through the Generations

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! My daughters Allison and Jess and my nephew J.P. made lunch for our whole family today to celebrate. What is your family doing? We usually have a recipe to talk about and share, but today I’m going to talk about one of my other hobbies – […]

Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies for #SecretRecipeClub

This month’s Secret Recipe Baking Club assignment for us is The Harried Cook. I checked out the recipes from Marsha’ s blog this month, since Allison and Jessica had extra-busy months with work. Marsha has a lot of baking recipes, which are right up my alley. I would rather bake then cook. I love to […]

Fruity Wine Jelly

I work for a local winery in Pennsylvania (Benigna’s Creek Winery), and March is wine trail season for us. During the month of March, our winery bands together with 12 other wineries to encourage customers to get out there and taste some wine. Most of the wineries have wine and food pairings each weekend, which […]
