Sourdough Water Bagels
Making water bagels can be a bit time consuming and labor intensive, but the results are great! Once you’ve eaten a homemade water bagel, you’ll never want to buy bagels again.
Today, I’m making sourdough water bagels and pumpernickel water bagels.
Pumpernickel Water Bagels
It’s autumn and that means that as outdoor temperatures drop I often crave a warm, comforting after dinner dessert.
Try out my recipe for Apple Crisp. The tart apples paired with the sweet crisp topping will definitely leave you hoping for seconds!
Enjoy and remember every day is a great day to cook!
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Here’s a great recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Cake. It’s moist, rich, and delicious. You’ll love it.
Do you have one or more rogue zucchinis growing in your garden? Are they big enough to use as a weapon? Or, perhaps you have an anonymous zucchini donor who puts the large vegetables on your porch in the middle of the night?
You can search on the word zucchini in my cookbook and find some great zucchini recipes.
One of my favorites is zucchini bread. This is a great breakfast treat and a family favorite.
Chocolate Sweet Bread
One of my favorite breakfast treats is sweet bread. I like to bake up a few different recipes of sweet bread on the weekend. I leave one loaf out for my family to eat and freeze the rest for another time.
Try making my Chocolate Sweet Bread or, for a more traditional flavor, try my Cranberry Orange Sweet Bread.

Enjoy this breakfast treat and remember every day is a great day to bake!

Are you looking for a slightly healthier way to serve up potatoes? Maybe a recipe that doesn’t have butter, sour cream, or other high fat ingredients?
Oven Roasted Potatoes
Why not try my recipe for Oven Roasted Potatoes? They are easy to make and the spices along with the lemon zest, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar really jazz up a vegetable that can often be rather bland.
Thanks for visiting Valerie’s Cookbook and remember every day is a great day to cook!
Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Spice Cookies
One of my favorite cookies comes from an old family recipe for Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Spice Cookies.
Buttermilk gives these cookies a delicate, moist, cake-like texture while the spices wake up your taste buds.
If you enjoy homemade cookies, take time to make a batch of Old Fashioned Oatmeal Spice Cookies; I think you will really like these!
Israeli Couscous With Garlic and Spices
Are you interested in cooking up a quick, easy, and healthy side dish to go with your meal?
Why not try my recipe for Israeli Couscous With Garlic and Spices? It’s a great alternative to a high starch side dish like pasta or potatoes.
Look for Israeli couscous in the bulk food section of your local health food grocery store. You can also find it at most grocery stores on the aisle that stocks various types of grains.
Enjoy this new and exciting side dish and remember, every day is a great day to cook.
Beef, Barley, and Vegetable Soup
It’s cold outside and I’m ready to make a big pot of Beef, Barley, and Vegetable Soup.
This soup is what comfort food is all about. It will warm you up after being outside in the winter elements.
It’s even better with a side of cornbread.
Stay warm and remember every day is a great day to cook!
