Things are about to get cookie crazy around here.
Ok, not really, but they should. And in a perfect world (read: where calories don’t at all for the entire months of November and December), cookie crazy would be my life right now. (more…)

After eating these granola bars, not only will you never want to buy store-bought granola bars ever again, but you will also never want to make another recipe for chewy granola bars again. I know that’s a mighty tall claim, but I’m standing by it. These bars are that good. (more…)
When I was dreaming up this cake I had a decadent chocolate cake in mind.
Something really indulgent…sinful, even.
Then I looked in my fridge and found three pretty zucchinis that needed to be used up (even despite making a few zucchini recipes lately, like Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts and Cinnamon + Nutmeg Zucchini “Applesauce”).
Seeing the zucchini I got an idea and I knew sinful would have to wait. (more…)
Most people I know use umbrellas in downpours.
I always say I won’t melt and shrug off the fact that I will inevitably look half-drowned after choosing not to use an umbrella; but the truth is I really can’t be bothered with the trouble (which of course is really no trouble at all) of using one (although there’s a quite large pretty black umbrella in my car at all times). I must be some kind of umbrella-phobe. Weird, right?
Now heat is another story. Coupled with high humidity, when temps over 85 hit me I actually do melt. (more…)
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but did you realize that summer is more than half over?
That happened fast.
Did you have a summer bucket list of things you wanted to get done?
I’ve been slowly crossing little things off of mine. (more…)
There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for.
Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes. (more…)
I recently happened on the best-ever homemade chewy brownies recipe completely by chance.
I wasn’t in the mood for dessert at the time; surprisingly I didn’t have visions of chocolate beckoning to me, and I certainly didn’t think I needed a new brownie recipe. (Especially since the last brownie recipe I shared with you is not only a bit healthier than most, but still completely satisfying.)
I had about 20 minutes of extra time to kill and two bookcases full of cookbooks with which to waste time. I had been working on an article all day, so in need of a diversion from work, I turned to The Best of America’s Test Kitchen 2011, a cookbook I’ve only peeked into maybe once or twice before. As I flipped through the recipes, I stopped at the Easy Cheesy Quiche for Two to ogle it for a moment, then lingered a bit in the seafood chapter (boy do their Maryland Crab Cakes sound divine), and finally flipped to the back of the book. Of course, as any cookbook connoisseur knows, the desserts are lurking back there. I really wasn’t planning to make anything, just doing a little window shopping.
Let me just say, window shopping of any kind is a dangerous practice. (more…)
A while ago I bought a bulk-sized package of creamed coconut on Amazon. I was actually looking for coconut cream but I couldn’t find it; not realizing that several coconut products (creamed coconut, coconut cream, and cream of coconut) were named in a lawyer-like fashion with their meaning hinging on an ever-so-slight difference in word ordering, I bought a six-pack.
How different could creamed coconut really be from coconut cream?, I asked myself. I was about to find out.
Let’s just say, perhaps the only thing they have in common is that they’re made from coconut. (more…)
I can’t do dry cake. Or gummy cake. Or bland cake.
I’d rather eat celery sticks.
Even if I’m dying for a chocolate fix.
Halloween at my mom’s house is like a free-for-all when it comes to sugar. She always has an insanely huge amount of candy on hand for giving away to kiddos trick-or-treating. She fills a stockpot (which is about four times as big as my normal big soup pot!) to the point of overflowing, and then it’s a frenzied dash for stuffing your bag (and your face) with candy.
It is so hard to avoid that evil pot of temptation.
