Deluxe Toll House Mud Bars

These Deluxe Toll House Mud Bars are the latest, delicious recipe we’re sharing made from my mother’s old recipe box! I’ve mentioned before that, growing up, my mom was always baking Toll House chocolate chip cookies – so it’s no surprise that that this Deluxe Toll House Mud Bars recipe was in her passed-down recipe […]

Sour Cream Pudding Cake

This Sour Cream Pudding Cake bakes up light and spongy on top with a rich, sweet, syrupy, caramel, raisin and walnut sauce on the bottom.  It’s heavenly! Long before we started writing A Family Feast – and long before so much information was easy to find online – I used to clip recipes from newspaper […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

We’ve held off long enough…these delicious Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are our first new pumpkin recipe of the season!

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

Anytime I see super fresh Brussels sprouts at the market, I usually fill up a bag to take home,  I am more than a little obsessed with this recipe (just ask my husband Jack) 🙂 , but being in the midst of the hottest week of the summer – the last thing I wanted to […]

Best Ever Banana Bread

On just about any day of the week – if you looked on our kitchen counter – you would find a bunch of bananas waiting to be eaten. We are definitely a banana-eating family and love to eat them as a snack, add them to smoothies, or bake them up into the Best Ever Banana […]

Palm Springs Date Shake

I came across the recipe for this Palm Springs Date Shake in a recent issue of Bon Appetit magazine, and I immediately ripped out the page from the magazine so I could try making it at home! This is a very unique and very delicious treat! A Palm Springs Date Shake is essentially a thick […]

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Babka

Earlier this year, I read somewhere that 2016 is ‘the year of the babka’ so we’re jumping on the bandwagon! Babka is a sweet yeast cake similar in texture to a brioche, but there are actually many different versions of babka around! Today’s recipe – a Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Babka – is more akin to […]

Chop Suey Cake

If you’re a regular reader here at A Family Feast, then you already know that Jack and I both have a soft spot in our hearts for vintage family recipes. In this case, seeing the recipe card for this Chop Suey Cake in my mom’s old recipe box sparked a long-forgotten memory from my childhood […]

Fig Bar Cookies

Growing up, I remember that my mom was a big fan of Fig Newtons – a rolled cake-like cookie stuffed with a sweet fig filling. So it was not really a surprise when we found this delicious Fig Bar Cookies recipe in my mother’s old recipe box. These Fig Bar Cookies are actually very similar […]

Apple Chunkies

PIN THIS RECIPE! Among the stash of old recipes I was fortunate enough to inherit from my mother, we found a little pink notebook with – you guessed it – even more recipes that my mother had written down! The notebook contained mostly dessert recipes (my mom had quite the sweet tooth!) and this recipe […]

Sour Cream Streusel Coffeecake

As much as I love apple and pumpkin recipes at this time of the year – sometimes, a simple and classic Sour Cream Streusel Coffeecake is REALLY what I want baking in the oven on a cool Fall morning! Put on a pot of coffee to brew… because there really is nothing better than the […]

Orange Zucchini Cookies

I’ve been dreaming about these delicious Orange Zucchini Cookies ever since last summer! My husband Jack originally made these light and perfectly sweet cookies as a test batch when our garden was overflowing with zucchini. They were so good – we ate them all before we had a chance to photograph them to share here […]

Homemade Multigrain Cereal

We’re sharing this Homemade Multigrain Cereal made with SPLENDA® Sweeteners as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars #SplendaSweeteners #SweetSwaps We are a family of cereal lovers! But when I read the cereal package labels, I don’t love seeing all of the sugars in some of the store-bought brands we buy. The solution? Our delicious […]

Rookie Cookies

This recipe for Rookie Cookies is from my mother’s old recipe box – and like all of the older recipes we’ve been recreating from her collection – we try to research the origin or background of these old classic recipes whenever we can! So what a surprise…after doing a Google search on “Rookie Cookies,” we […]

Mexican Bread Pudding

We’re finishing up the week with a perfect dessert for your Cinco de Mayo celebration – Mexican Bread Pudding! This simple-to-make recipe has incredible flavor and it’s so good, we’ll be making it year round at our house! This Mexican Bread Pudding is different from most in that it is not a custard based bread […]

Apple Harvest Squares

September is the beginning of apple picking season here in New England – and as part of that, I always dig out a few of my favorite apple recipes including this recipe for Apple Harvest Squares! These apple harvest squares are rich and delicious thanks to three sweet layers that make up this baked taste […]

Waldorf Salad

As teenagers, my sister Regina and I both tried out for our high school play – the classic musical “Anything Goes” by Cole Porter. We had to learn a number of songs and dances and, to this day, I still remember many of the lyrics from that show! One song we learned, “You’re The Top,” […]

Chinese Fried Walnuts

Fair warning…these Chinese Fried Walnuts are addictive! I am a big fan of foods that combine salty and sweet together, so when I first had these Chinese Fried Walnuts at my sister Joanne’s house a few years ago, it was love at first salty-sweet, crunchy bite.  The nuts are first boiled, then tossed in sugar […]
