Pumpkin Praline Blondies

I can’t believe it’s the middle of pumpkin season, and I haven’t made anything with pumpkin yet! I think I went overboard last year with pumpkin biscuits,  pumpkin waffles, …pumpkin doughnuts and thought I was running out of ideas…until now. I made pumpkin praline blondies. I liked the idea of making a chewy bar that…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer Cake

Let’s file this chocolate chip cookie layer cake under “things I’ve always wanted to try”. I like the idea of making layer cakes out of unconventional recipes. So far I’ve made a pancake layer cake, and a peanut butter rice krispy treat cake which were really fun to make. Now I wanted to try it…

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Occasionally, I like to go back to some of my earlier posts to see if I can improve upon them, or learn something new. It just happens that I was craving chocolate whoopie pies, something I haven’t had, since the last time I made them, which was a few years ago.  I think it’s because…

Ginger Molasses Cookies

Back when I had my little cookie business edith + ethel, ginger molasses cookies was on the menu. I must say, they’re one of my favorites. I would make tons of ginger molasses cookies for gift boxes during the holidays.  That was back when I was a stay at home mom, and had slightly more…

Bacon Sugar Cookies

I can’t believe I finally made bacon sugar cookies; it’s been a long time coming. Here’s how the bacon sugar cookies came about. A fellow admin at work ordered a lunch for a few executives, and as usual, I chip in to help set up. It was a massive do-it-yourself salad bar with all the…

Lemon Tea Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Lemon tea cookies with lemon glaze might be my new favorite cookie. I bought a huge bag of lemons from Costco the other day. I needed the zest for another recipe (making limoncello, coming soon), but had a ton of lemons left over that I needed to use. I’ve already tried lemon bars, and wasn’t…

BA’s Brownie Thins

I’m beginning to think that I should start doing ads for Bon Appetit. In addition to subscribing to their magazine, I receive many fun articles on food happenings. The other day I came across an article on BA’s brownie thins, and had to give them a try. Brownie thins have been the rage for a while…

Toffee Chocolate Chip Blondies

While blindly reaching into my cupboard for a napkin, I felt a little bag containing something I couldn’t identify. I pulled out what was a left over half a bag of toffee chips from my brown butter chocolate chip cookies. But it was more than that. It was another chance to bake my way through…

Pecan Pie Bar

I thought it was time to revisit pecan pie bars.  I first made pecan pie bars about 3 years ago, with lackluster results. I wanted to try the recipe again, but I never seemed to get around to it, or it was around pecan pie season and everyone wanted a pie and not bars.  Also,…

Blueberry and Cream Cookies

About a week ago, I made blueberry cornbread, and bought way more blueberries than necessary for the recipe. I froze some for later use, but I still had a container that was on its last legs in the refrigerator, and needed to come up with another recipe quick. Blueberry and cream cookies. I’ve wanted to make…

Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whenever I see a recipe, article, or headline that reads “The best…” I raise an eyebrow. Is it really the best? While poking around on Bon Appetit’s website the other day, I saw a link in the sidebar that read “Could this recipe be the greatest chocolate chip cookie ever?” I of course, clicked on…

Peanut Butter Pie Bars

I shouldn’t admit this, but I still had a few bags of graham cracker crumbs left over from when I made graham cracker chocolate chip cookies. While I hate throwing anything away, I tend be in a never-ending race between waiting for the right recipe to come along, and the expiration date. I still had…
