Recipe Reviews

If you are a regular reader of my blog you may remember when I made this post about some crock pot meals I was going to make while sisters were visiting.
Most of the recipes received a thumbs up, some a thumbs down.
The winners were pinto beans & the jalapeno corn bread, breakfast casserole & big batch chili.
The recipes that I will never make again are the French Toast casserole & the Crock Pot Corn, Bacon and Potato Chowder.  The texture of the French Toast was just too mushy & we didn't care for the taste of the chowder.
The jalapeno corn bread was the biggest hit.  Not one piece was left!

Thursday, I baked Pumpkin Snickerdoodles, perfect for a cool October day.
They are so yummy! 
I found the recipe on Pinterest.
Check out my Pinterest "Cookie Jar" board here.

What do you like to bake when the weather turns cold?

Well pooh ~I was looking forward to making the chowder. I love making cookies too. Oatmeal raisin are my favorites, since I often have them for breakfast (: Have a great weekend!

Thank you for an honest review. I have wondered about the French toast and have often thought I'd give it a whirl. Now I won't. I do love a cheesy corn chowder and can't imagine it being any easier than making it atop the stove. Crockpots are for things that can go untended. I don't think that milky things qualify. You have a splendid cookie board. I'm going to try to remember it the next time I need a cookie idea.

Your cookies look yummy.
My favorite fall treat isn't really baking...I can almost smell the homemade carmel popcorn, just thinking about it. Mom would have a batch ready for an afterschool snack. I haven't made it for many years.

Good to know how the recipes turned out!!
The cookies look delish, and I'll have to go check out your Pin board.

We cook a lot of soups, and chowders, and bake a lot of bread, when the weather turns cold.

We woke up to 13 degrees outside this morning... brrr...
