Tomato-cucumber salad

Tomato-cucumber salad

All summer long my family absolutely loves a simple salad of thin sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, because is fresh and pretty much can be eaten with any dish. But if you are busy person as I am, I am sure you don’t have time to make this salad everyday.
This is a trick that i discovered if you want to “meal-prep” when you have a few extra minutes that tastes really good.

Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies

Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies

I recently discovered Madeliene Cookies and I love baking and making them. For this contest, I decided to use the base ingredients of Madeleine Cookies. After reading many recipes, I decided on what ingredients I wanted to try, adjust and or change for this new Madeleine recipe. These Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies are new but maintain the beauty and essence of a traditional Madeleine Cookie. I call these cookies Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies. Autumn Spice Madeleine Cookies are pretty, flavor bursting and filling little treats. This recipe substantially reduces the amount of butter used in a traditional Madeleine cookie. It also adds new flavors and color to a traditional Madeleine cookie.
