Snickers Cookies on Sticks or NOT

I gotta tell ya, when I first spied these cookies, the attraction was a fun recipe for baking with leftover Halloween candy. Instead, Snickers Cookies are dreamy good, the best cookies I’ve made all year. Think “peanut butter cookie with a Snickers bar inside” but then take a bite, oh so chewy and what’s that? Oh my, it’s chocolate and caramel and nougat right inside. The sticks are optional, the cookies themselves, not. TESTIMONIALS "[My husband] says they're the best cookies I've ever made ..." ~ LeAnne "These are fantastic!! ... Definitely a keeper." ~ -K Peel the petals from a daisy to answer, “Does he love me? Does he not?” Visit a clairvoyant to learn “Is it a boy or a girl?” Consult a fortune cookie to foretell the future. Could a recipe for Snickers Cookies on Sticks reveal what kind of moms we might be? A mom who bakes a plateful of homemade cookies for after-school treats? Or a mom who organizes fun Halloween cooking project

Moroccan Onions
(Mezgaldi Spiced Onions)

I finally got the "onions aren't just for mirepoix" memo and this may well go down as the Year of the Onion. This recipe is my variation of the traditional Moroccan onions called mezgaldi . They are sliced and spiced, then roasted, then caramelized under the broiler, all simpler than it sounds. I think you're going to love this recipe ... Real Food, Fresh & Family-Tested.

My Favorite Apple Recipes

Who else feels like breaking into culinary cartwheels when the season's first apples begin to appear, first at local farmers markets, soon even in grocery stores? Those early apples call for an "apple a day" but after that, what to make with all those crispy, sweet apples that come home with us by the bushel? Here I've collected my favorite apple recipes over many years, savory and sweet, from a super-simple sugar-free applesauce to the apple pie in my flaky tender pie crust that home cooks say makes their "best crust ever". Grab an apple and c'mon in! Happy happy fall, everyone! May our baskets ever be full, enjoy the apple recipes! ~ Alanna
