These cinnamon rolls scream “Crunchy snow! Sleeping in! Balsam-scented candles! Flannel pajamas! Lazy Sunday!” so loudly that I have to eat them very, very quickly and in copious quantities to quiet them down.
Growing up, my dad made the worst french toast. He’d soak nutty, wheat bread in egg whites, a little skim milk, and (adding insult to injury) wouldn’t even add butter to the frying pan. Because of this, I gave up on french toast a long time ago, writing it off as the worst of breakfast foods. Needless to say, this french toast restored my faith and is the polar opposite of the french toast I ate growing up; it’s actually delicious. And easy, and a magnificent way to use stale bread that you would’ve thrown out otherwise.
This recipe is for people who find themselves with extra apples on their hands, something that happens to many (lucky) people in autumn. I fit the bill after a co-worker brought in a gigantic box full of Cortland apples from her yard.
These brownies require minimal ingredients, minimal dishes and minimal effort. My kind of dessert. These are the brownies you whip up when it’s late, and you want something sweet, but baking sounds like a chore.
Of course, I have made chocolate peanut butter cookies before. Of course. But I have never made chocolate peanut butter cookies without flour, or butter. Or any cookie without flour or butter, for that matter. These cookies are gluten free, and they are marvelous.
These brownies…speechless. Please beware: these are painfully easy, but involve about 5 hours of waiting time, so they’re best made on a lazy weekend afternoon, while wearing pajamas.
