Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 33
Yay for the weekend!
Can Fall come any sooner? I am ready for cold weather, falling leaves, and pumpkins, please.
When this time of year happens, I am in the kitchen 24/7. I’m baking new recipes and creating fresh dinners to share with my family. That’s what Fall is all about for me, family.
Giving thanks with a grateful heart and a new dessert to share with loved ones is what I do. I love creating and sharing my inspirations and ideas with you all.
By saying that, here are my easy homemade dessert recipes that will make you wonder why you didn’t start baking earlier. There is always something to be grateful for, and in this case, it’s delicious desserts!
Have a wonderful Saturday!
A Personal Note from Janine
My favorite desserts are cookies and cakes.
Over the summer, my daughter introduced me to the Crumbl cookies.
Have you heard of this brand of cookies? They originated in Logan Utah and now have stores nationwide. When we were vacationing in Montana, we spied a store in the town of Missoula.
If you aren’t familiar with Crumbl, they make a wide range of sugar cookies.
On my first visit to our local store, I was excited to see all the yummy cookies. You can’t believe how happy I was to see that cookies are popular again.
So Crumbl changes out their daily cookie selection, so each day is a surprise lineup. They carry chocolate cookies with luscious chocolate frosting, a birthday cake cookie with lots of colorful sprinkles, and many more varieties.
But, my favorite is their classic sugar cookie, and I love the almond flavoring. So, I got busy in the kitchen and came up with my version.
And I must say it tastes pretty close to theirs, and maybe mine is somewhat better.
Now my mind is happily spinning with new cookie combinations. I feel like the sky’s the limit. Oh, the cookies I can create for the holidays.

This Week’s Tip -Chemicals in our Baking Flour
So, I’m going out on a limb on this subject about flour and Bromate.
Maybe you haven’t a clue about this chemical added to our flour, or perhaps you already know.
Well, when I looked into gluten-free flour a couple of years ago, my research unearthed this topic of Bromate.
Here’s the rough definition of Bromate. It improves flour dough strength and spring and also enhances the rise of baked goods. You would think this is a good thing, but a 1982 study showed that it causes cancer in rats.
In 1991 the FDA encouraged us not to use products with Bromate. But they haven’t banned it like other European countries.
Ok, you’re probably wondering which flours are safe. Well, King Arthur has it on their packaging that their flour is Bromate free, and also, Bob’s Red Mill doesn’t contain Bromate.
I use both brands, and I don’t see a difference in the rise of my baked goods.
I hope this baking tip helps in creating healthy treats for your family.
