#1 – DEAD GIRLS DON’T BLOG
While searching for Belinda Moore,
Katy gets invited for coffee and cookies.
After eating four, she wonders how many more
she can eat before it becomes rude.
It’s a twist on the classic peanut butter cookie!
Crunchy outside, creamy inside, with just a hint of cinnamon.
It won the Pillsbury Bakeoff in 2008!
Katy discovered this incredible
sandwich several years ago
on the Oprah show.
The original recipe calls for three cheeses –
Havarti, Mozzarella, and Danish Fontina,
but Katy usually makes do with just Havarti.
At the “Bookstore Bistro” in Dead Girls Don’t Blog,
and in Better Dead Than Wed, it’s called “The Katydid”.
#2 – BETTER DEAD THAN WED
Sugar Cream Pie
Katy planned to make yummy this pie
for her new neighbors,
but it never made it across the street.
This pie ain’t pretty, but it’s incredible.
And so simple to make. Better the next day.
This is a yummy and easy to make cookie
from Betty Crocker. I’ve tweaked the recipe
just a bit to make it even easier.
Katy saw this on an old episode of
Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Channel.
It is delicious and easy to prepare.
Everyone will want thirds!
I don’t have a picture of it, but trust me, it’s addictive!
I found the recipe on Tracey Garvis Grave’s blog.
She wrote On the Island.
The main ingredient is
Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Dip.
You might find it at Costco and I know it’s on Amazon.
I found a version of this recipe online,
but it called for chili powder and jalapenos–
too spicy for my husband (after throat cancer).
I made this mild version for the family and they LOVED it.
Even my toddler grandson.
Katy McKenna loves it too.
Plus, it’s super easy, so that’s probably why.
