Making Cookies With My Granddaughter

We usually have grandchildren over after church and usually involves making cookies.

Most of the time it is chocolate chip cookies, however I didn't have chocolate chips. I undead up making sugar chocolate chip cookies. Making Cookies With My grandchildren makes baking that much more enjoyable.

Coffee Cake in Mug


https://cookingwithcurls.com/2016/07/09/coffee-cake-mug/

It was one of those mornings that I was in the mood for coffee cake, but I really did not want to make a full pan of coffee cake. With one three of us in the house, I thought it would not all get eaten in a timely manner or I would just eat more than I wanted to.

So it was off to find a recipe on the internet for a coffee cake for one recipe. I was willing to bake it.
So I found a recipe that could be made in the microwave and included all the ingredients I had on hand...or so I thought I had.

I could not find the vanilla I needed. Search everywhere in the kitchen for it, could not find it. I found maple flavoring and used it instead. Good choice, I may continue to use maple favoring for this recipe in the future.

The recipe link is in with the picture and can also be found here.
There is no egg in the recipe, I might try substituting egg for some or all of the milk in the future.

Turned out really tasty and I hope not to eat is all in one sitting.

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies


I have a recipe box that I inherited from my mother-in-law. I knew that there was a recipe for sugar free cookies, but I could not find that recipe. I did stumble upon a oatmeal coconut cookie recipe and since I had coconut to use up, I used that recipe. I did add chocolate chips and reduced the flour , which I should not have. The cookies ended up a little flat.

But they were delicious.

Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

I would of never of paired chili and cinnamon rolls together, but I guess it is a thing in at least Nebraska.


It started out I wanted to make something in a crock pot and I thought of chili. I don't make chili that often and was surprised to come across beer in the recipe. I am glad we had some in the fridge, because I was not going to buy a six pack of beer for just using a bottle. I guess I could of, my husband would of drank the beer.

Then while making the chili I remember that my husband likes to have cinnamon rolls with his chili. I did not want to go back to the store to buy cinnamon rolls nor did I want to make a large batch of rolls and spend hours making them. What are the odds that I not only find a small batch cinnamon rolls recipe, but it is made in about an hour too. I found it here.

So going back to the pairing of these two items, I guess the two used to paired as part of a school lunch.
