Chewy Chocolate Sugar Cookies

July 23, 2013

It is all about the chew for me with cookies. And boy, do these guys have some chew… Not crispy or hard. Not soft or cakey. Just chewy and delightful. Personally what I consider to be the best cookie texture. Although I do have a soft spot for a good tender, crumbly shortbread of sorts. [...]

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

July 9, 2013

My daughter is a 100% hardcore, chocolate addict. It’s a hard truth for me. After all, I’m the reason she goes insane if anybody even mentions the word ‘chocolate‘. For that matter she does the same thing with the words ‘cookie‘, ‘cake‘, or ‘gummi‘. Actually, you can thank Germany for that last one. For some [...]

Brookies

July 2, 2013

I’ve just gotta tell you guys about what happened to me on Saturday. Or more accurately put- what I did to myself- ha. You are going to see where this is going immediately and I am sure it won’t be that funny to you since it was more of a ‘had-to-be-there’ scenario. But I am [...]

Good Morning Sunshine Bars

June 25, 2013

Germany’s climate is killing me… even though I technically ‘lived’ in Germany last year, I spent the summer in Upstate NY with my family while my Husband was deployed. I had a beautiful Summer full of lots of warm weather and sunshine. Well, was I in for a surprise this Summer when I actually decided [...]

Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies

June 13, 2013

I hate when I do this. I made these cookies forever ago, took a picture, put them in my blogging folder, and forgot about them. So frustrating! Like I think I’ve been sitting on this recipe for 6 months now. Isn’t that terrible? I liked them though so I didn’t want to just throw out [...]

Homemade Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

May 29, 2013

Reeses were probably one of my favorite candies growing up. It’s a pretty good toss up between Reeses and Snickers. I could go either way. But no matter what my preference, I would always save my Reeses peanut butter cups for last when I was going through my Halloween candy as a kid. The MaryJanes [...]

Alton Brown’s “The Chewy”

May 28, 2013

How many chocolate chip cookie recipes does a person need? I think this may be the 5th I am sharing with you… is that excessive? Probably. But I swear it’s a totally selfless thing… I’m doing it for you really! I am determined to find the very best chocolate chip cookie recipe out there. I’ve tried: [...]

Double-Chocolate Loaf with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Spread

May 24, 2013

I’ve recently discovered the merits of quality cocoa powder (and by recently I mean a year and a half ago). I’ve actually become quite a cocoa powder snob haha. I used to buy Hershey’s simply because it was conveniently at my disposable at almost any grocery store in America. I never even thought to special [...]
