Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 99
How is everyone doing after the holidays? My family has many leftovers, trees still up, and presents to enjoy.
Life is good despite the quick transition of Christmas to New Year’s in the Waite house.
I still have my winter wonderland scene in the living room to keep admiring the twinkling lights a little longer 🙂
But this post isn’t about Christmas. Let’s talk about the new year.
You all know I love to bake, so here are a few delicious dessert recipes from my kitchen to yours that I love to bake for loved ones!
Personal Note from Janine
Happy New Year’s Eve!
This week I was busy in the kitchen inventing new recipes. I love baking and cooking if you haven’t noticed. I’m happiest in the kitchen.
Over the holidays, my daughter inspired me to create these decadent gluten-free brownies. I’m happy to report that there is no hint that they are different from regular flour brownies. This dessert has a layer of chocolate chip cookies and gluten-free Oreos and is topped with my yummy brownie recipe.
It’s pretty rich, to say the least. So, I slice them up thinly and nibble on these desserts from time to time. And then, I’m off hiking the hills the rest of the day, trying to burn off the calories!
But I promise to make some healthy dinner and lunch recipes in the New Year! My husband and I love salads, so you can bet I’ll be sharing our yummy recipes with you.
In the meantime, enjoy this special edition of New Year’s desserts!
This Week’s Inspiration – New Year’s Dessert Recipes
Make these Gluten Free Slutty Brownies when you want to make a decadent chocolate Oreo dessert without the flour.
This delicious brownie contains a chocolate chip cookie base with an Oreo cookie middle and is topped with a chocolatey brownie. All of these delightful layers are gluten-free!
This Ranger Cookie Recipe blends oatmeal, coconut, cornflakes, and chocolate chips. This blend of yummy ingredients creates crispy edges with a slightly chewy texture.
You can substitute both the flour with my gluten-free flour blend.
This Lemon Tart Puff Pastry is so easy to make. I love how it tastes like it was made in a fancy bakery.
They key is to use a fresh homemade lemon curd.
Brownie Recipe Without Cocoa Powder
Here’s a delicious, moist Brownie Recipe Without Cocoa Powder that came to me via my mother-in-law.
I’ve never had a brownie like this one since it’s moist, has a great taste, and the frosting unanimously makes this dessert one of my favorites.
Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Bake a chewy, sweet yet salty, delicious dessert to enjoy during the cold days of Winter or any time of the year.
Easy to create, special to serve, and just the right amount of sweetness to your liking. This recipe is for all of those chocolate-loving, dessert craving kinds of people out there!
Do you love sugar cookies? This is a copycat version of the Crumbl Classic Sugar Cookie recipe.
This yummy cookie doesn’t contain vanilla extract but rather almond extract. It has a fresh and surprising taste, and the pink frosting also has a hint of almond.
This Fudgy Oatmeal Bars Recipe is so delicious and simple to make. The chocolate center is in between a yummy oatmeal cookie dough.
The combination of a dark chocolate layer and oatmeal with shredded coconut is perfect.
Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe is the best Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie.
In addition, this is the best recipe since it only has four ingredients!
Now that summer has arrived,and there is a ton of fruit at the stores, a Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe is essential!
This easy dessert pie filling only takes a few minutes to make. Refrigerate the pie and serve once the glaze is firm. Your family will love this fruit pie.
This recipe is crazy delicious. I’m confident that it’s among the Best Carrot Cake you’ll ever eat.
Everyone that I serve it to tells me that it’s moist and probably is the world’s best carrot cake recipe!

Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake
This smooth Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake is wheat-free but tastes like it has wheat. It’s similar to a lemon pound cake recipe minus the wheat flour.
The intense lemon flavor makes it the best lemon cake around.
I love any dessert with citrus, and this Fresh Orange Scone Recipe has the perfect blend of orange and cranberry. The original recipe is from the Magnolia Table Cookbook by Joanna Gaines.
Since I can’t have enough cookbooks, I bought it, and after skimming it, I immediately knew that I wanted to bake her scone recipe.
If you’ve had The Original House of Pancake’s Apple Dutch Baby, then you’ll love this recipe.
It’s an oven-baked pancake that’s easy to make, and you can serve it for breakfast, brunch, and dessert. It’s a light custard-like souffle topped with cinnamon and nutmeg-drenched apples.
This Week’s Tip – Butter for Baking
Room Temperature Butter
We all know butter sometimes needs to be at room temperature before adding it to your batter. And the best way to achieve this process is to leave it on your kitchen counter for an hour or so.
But, sometimes, we are in a hurry and don’t have an hour to spare. So, here are a few ways I soften my butter.
- Slice up the stick of butter into pats and lay it out on parchment paper. (Softens in 5-15 minutes)
- You can also cut the stick of butter into small cubes, and it will reach room temp even quicker. (Softens in 5-15 minutes)
- Grate the butter. (Softens in 5 minutes)
- Pound the butter in a plastic Ziploc bag. (Softens in 5 minutes)
- Place 2 cups of water (use a pyrex measuring bowl) in your microwave and bring it to a boil. Then remove the water and place your pats of butter (on a plate) in the microwave and close it. Leave it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Latest Obsession – My Fave Cookbook
I love Tieghan’s recipes and check out her website quite often. I have many of her recipes printed out, all clumped together in a folder.
Well, my sweet daughter gave me her cookbook for Christmas, and I love it! I made the Zuppa Toscana soup the other day, and it was a hit with my family. Tieghan’s recipes are on par with restaurant recipes, and I love that we don’t eat out quite as much anymore.
This cookbook is a must for any kitchen!
Who is in the mood for baking? I’m always in the mood, but this time more than ever.
