Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 72
We are finally back from our trip, and it feels good to be home. Let’s say the trip didn’t go 100% according to the plan, but we had a fun time!
As I said, it feels good to be back in the Bay Area. Before leaving, I was scrambling around the kitchen day and night, trying to perfect these dessert recipes.
Well, I succeeded.
This blog post is proof that I have been working on new recipes for the summer. So, come on and check them out before summer is gone!
Personal Note from Janine
We just took a trip down to Southern California,, and we were supposed to visit Disneyland with the whole family. We had a snafu in plans since our son tested positive for covid. So unfortunately our trip quickly changed into another trip.
Our son stayed at his apartment at school while we took our trip without him. We decided to reschedule the trip for later when he could join us.
So, instead of a Disney trip, we visited colleges for our dweren’t visited a ton of beaches.hadn’trt Beach was gorgeous,, and we enjoyedidn’tdinner on the beach. I think we were the only ones that weren’t in swimsuits. You see,, we hadn’t planned to visit the beach, so we didn’t come prepared.
Nonetheless, it was a relaxing trip and nice visiting a different part of California was nice.
We are back home and hanging out and enjoWeek’sur comfy home. After a trip, we always wonder why we ever leave our home.
Seriously, there is no place like home.

This Ranger Cookie Recipe blends oatmeal, coconut, corn flakes, 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 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!
Our family loved anything to do with mochi! So, it made sense that I share this wonderful Japanese-inspired dessert with you.
The ingredients contain flour and a few others like sweet rice, tapioca flour, potato starch, and xanthan gum.
But rest assured, it is an easy recipe, and these donuts are so tasty.

I love any dessert with citrus, and this Fresh Orange can’t 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 I wanted to bake her scone recipe!

The combination of a dark chocolate layer and oatmeal with shredded coconut is perfect!
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 hints of almond.
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.
This cookie contains no wheat flour, which is a perfect gluten-free dessert.
A Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe is essential now that summer has arrived and a ton of fruit at the stores, a Fresh Strawberry Pie Recipe is essential!

Latest Obsession – Double Chocolate Bread I’veing
Brennan’s Double Chocolate Bread Pudding
Over the weekend, we visited Downtown Disneyland and ate the Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen. We had our favorite Salmon dish and shared the Double Chocolate Bread Pudding on the menu.
Oh my goodness, this dessert was the perfect amount of chocolate and sweetness. My husband and I enjoyed nibbling on it then our daughter took over the whole dessert. I was a bit perplexed since she wouldn’t have a dessert! 🙂
Oh well, now I’m going to try and recreate that whole dinner. I’m off to find his recipe for Collard greens. It was delicious, and beyond anything, I’ve ever eaten!
Thanks so much for joining me this special holiday weekend. Enjoy tomorrow’s Father’s Day celebration.
Take care and Happy Saturday!
