From my kitchen to you, with Love

It’s February!! I may not be a fan of winter but I do like February. Maybe because it seems like the last winter month, or maybe because it is my birthday month, but somehow it feels nice to be in February.

I think this month’s theme (I am really liking having a theme for the month!) is food! When bad things happen to the people I love, or when life just gets to crazy for someone, I tend to love them through my kitchen. I might not be able to make your life easier or help you deal with what is going on in your life exactly, but I can cook! And I love to putter about the kitchen! So I give my love by making yummy concoctions and sending them to those I love.

This month I will give a recipe for something yummy each week.

Since my littles were desiring something sweet but I didn’t want anything too crazy with sugar, I opted to make something I haven’t done for ages: Thumbprint biscuits!

Let’s get started!


Too bad you didn't see the poof of flour when Mr T turned it on too high!

These great little cookies aren’t too sweet but with the preserves in the center they feel a little decadent. 🙂



My favorite indulgence!

I used my rarely indulged in, but favorite, fig preserves but you can you any jam, preserves, or jelly.


Mr T was my helper and of course that means taste tester!


I think he likes them!

Now we have some yumminess for after dinner. I’m sure the other kiddos can’t wait to try them. If you have never had these I encourage you to give them a whirl!


They look so tempting sitting by the sunny window!

Here the recipe:

Thumbprint Fruit Biscuits

1/4 cup oil

1/2 cup water

2 cups flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

jelly/preserves/jam of your choice

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix wet ingredients well. Add dry ingredients and mix until dough is formed. Make balls of dough and press your thumb in the middle to make and indent. Spoon jam into the indent. (Optional: cover the jam with dough to make the deliciousness hidden!) Bake at 425 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Makes approximately one dozen.


Peace and health,
