chocolate cake cookies

These were today's after-school snack at our house. And the only way they could be easier is if I scooped the cookie dough right out of a pre-made cookie dough bucket. They're so quick to make. And, well ... very, very chocolately. If you're into that sort of thing.


1 box chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil (I prefer olive oil)
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Yield: About 3 dozen cookies.

ham & swiss rolls

Love these little sandwiches, especially for entertaining. You can make them ahead of time, keeping them refrigerated until you're ready to pop them in the oven. So easy. My cute (birthday girl this week) friend Karolyn shared this recipe with me years ago and it's always a hit.


24 rolls
12 thick slices deli ham (black forest)
12 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 c. melted butter
1 1/2 Tbsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. poppy seeds

Slice rolls in half so they open. Spread mayo on top and bottom of the inside of each roll. Assemble rolls with ½ slice of cheese and ½ slice of ham. Place all of these in a baking pan or stone. Mix together the melted butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and poppy seeds with a whisk. Brush this mixture all over the tops of the rolls and cover with tin foil. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until heated through.
