The truth is, I just love cookies. And even though I try to eat healthily, I still want to eat cookies. So I started making myself these easy peasy little chocolate cookie bites, and they satisfy my cravings while still offering nutrients! These babies are sweet and a hint of salty, chewy, chocolatey, and crisp.
A weird thing happens when you have a newborn. Suddenly, you find yourself revealing way more about parts of your body, your sleep habits, and bodily functions in general to your friends (and near strangers) than you ever would have otherwise. If you are breastfeeding, your entire life suddenly feels like it hinges on your […]
Now that it’s Fall, I am going to be all about the baking. And what do we think of when we think of Fall? (No…it’s not just pumpkin.) Leaves! Leaves turning orange and red and dripping from the trees and crunching underfoot. I think maple should feature as prominently in our Fall lineup as all the […]
My son loves to make up creative desserts. A few weeks ago, I told him I like cookie dough ice cream, and he responded that he was making me a “super delicious” cookie dough out of salt, pepper, baking soda, and sugar. He may need to grow a little in his understanding of baking chemistry. […]
Are you into cookie butter? It’s basically like peanut butter…except made from pulverized cookies. You know. Because your sweet tooth wasn’t getting enough attention. I have meant to make a homemade cookie butter recipe for you at Christmas for about three years now (it makes a great foodie gift in a cute jar!)…but every Christmas slides by […]
Oh boy. Taste buds, get ready for a treat! It’s cookies. Cookies with everything good in them: cookies filled with more cookies as well as cream cheese and milk chocolate and malted milk powder. These are sneaky, late night, guilty pleasure cookies. These cookies are the masters of the school yard, and everyone else might […]
Yesterday, Jake decided to read all of my cookbooks. He pulled pretty much every single book off the shelf, one at a time, to ooh and aah over the glorious photos and recite every single letter in every single recipe title. That kid. Adorable. Somehow in the middle of this, I developed a hankering for peanut […]
I’ve been feeling pretty grinchy this Christmas season. This isn’t a fun time of year to be forbidden from eating any dairy of any kind. I have been lusting after trays of cookies and holiday cheese balls and getting grumpier and grumpier. But I just can’t imagine Christmastime without holiday baking, even if I can’t […]
I’m in the middle of my second one of these cookie-brownie bars as I type this, smearing my keyboard with buttery fingers and dropping tiny shards of Oreo between the keys. I’m actually not sure I’m going to be able to stop eating these. They are that good! If you live within a 5-mile radius […]
I don’t know about you, but I love a good gooey dessert. Especially a good gooey cookie or a good gooey butter cake. And these tea cakes are the best of both of those! Soft and slightly underbaked, richly vanilla, with a sweet tangy glaze. Yum.
