Wanna make the best cookies you ever ate? Check out this no flour monster cookie recipe for all the cookie monsters in your life.
Monster cookies contain oatmeal, peanut butter, and of course, the best thing, chocolate. They are chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside and packed to the tippy top with delicious flavor! Kids love monster cookies, adults love monster cookies, and my family can’t get enough monster cookies. (You’d think cookie monster lived here)
At Little Sprouts, we have lots of cookie monsters who love to eat cookies (not to mention their cookie loving parents) so I have a few cookies that are famous around these parts. This monster cookie recipe without flour has been a favorite here for years.
This homemade turkey gravy recipe will be the star of your holiday table. Homemade brown gravy is so much better than store-bought, you’ll amaze the family.
There is brown gravy and white gravy. White gravy is made with fat and flour along with milk. Brown gravy is made with meat drippings and cornstarch. Gravy from the turkey drippings is brown, generally speaking.
Fresh cranberry sauce is bomb-diggity. It’s beautiful and so tart, sweet, and tasty. It’s also easy as pie, so there’s no reason to buy the canned stuff or go without. I used to never like cranberry anything until one Christmas my mom made cranberry salsa which is amazing!
Homemade cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries
Later, I discovered what I have not liked about cranberry sauce before is the spices. I don’t like ginger, so I left it out. I loved it! When you make it, you can go ahead and add some ginger, or cinnamon, or whatever you like if that’s what you want to do.
This recipe will make any holiday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or whatever special occasion even more special. You’re going to love it and be amazed at how easy it is.
Are frozen cranberries as good as fresh?
When I made this recipe for Thanksgiving, I bought fresh cranberries and tossed them in the freezer until I needed them. Either fresh or frozen is fine for this recipe. While the cranberries are cooking, the most amazing cloud of mesmerizing smells will permeate the air and enrobe you in the holiday spirit (and make you hungry).
