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…

Chocolate Chip Scones

When Miles was younger I would make him chocolate chip muffins in large batches, wrap them individually, and keep them in the freezer for him to eat for breakfast before school. Now that he’s older, I’ve gotten slightly more sophisticated and upgraded to chocolate chip scones. This actually started out as a biscuit recipe, but…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread

When I saw this recipe, I immediately thought of a friend of mine who’s addicted to peanut butter.  I’m pretty sure he could live on it alone, so I decided to make this peanut butter chocolate chip bread in his honor.  Personally, I thought the concept sounded a little odd, but when I tasted the…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

  My son has been home sick for the past couple of days with a sinus infection, so I’ve been on nurse duty. My mom would always make chocolate chip cookies when I was sick, whether I could eat them or not. I think she knew I loved the smell of cookies baking and wanted…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I actually have my own cookie business.  I’m in a bit of denial about having one even though it’s been in existence since 2007.  It all started by accident.  While I was taking classes at culinary school, my good friend’s sister and her husband decided to…

Caramel Chocolate Chip Bars

Last weekend, I was really in the mood for something comforting. I was craving chocolate chip cookies, but I wanted them to be thick and chewy all the way through. I haven’t made Toll House (like)  bars in a very long time, so I thought I’d make that and put some left over caramel (from…

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Over the past few days (maybe weeks), I started noticing various things being made with a waffle maker. Everything, from sandwiches, to brownies, to cookies, you name it. I thought I’d have some fun with it myself and decided to try cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies. I have to tell you right now, that…

Waffle Maker Fun (not so much)

Over the past few days (maybe weeks), I started noticing various things being made with a waffle maker. Everything, from sandwiches, to brownies, to cookies, you name it. I thought I’d have some fun with it myself and decided to try cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies. I have to tell you right now, that…

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate chip muffins are pretty popular at my house. I usually make a couple of dozen, individually wrap them, and keep them in the freezer. It’s a great way for my son to feed himself in the morning before school. Just take one (or three) out of the freezer the night before to thaw and…
