Tasteful Tips From the Chickadee Cottage Empty Nest Cookbook
Today I'm sharing a couple of tasty recipes from my cookbook.
These are quick little blurbs, right out of the 'This and That' section. I guarantee this will help in a pinch, during the busy holiday season.
First I'll make brown sugar.
Start with granulated sugar and a squiggle of molasses.
Sure beats a lump of hard sugar lurking in the corner of the cupboard.
Next, Pumpkin Pie Spice.
There you have it. If your spice cabinet looks like mine, you don't need a separate container just for that pumpkin pie.
I'm sharing these today, because on Saturday I'm sharing a new recipe that calls for both.
And, I'm trying to help when you wail, 'Nooooo, I don't have any!'
