Passover Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got this recipe from The Shiksa, and it’s pretty solid! They taste just like regular ol’ chocolate chippers. And it was nice to see a familiar favorite that was adapted for the holiday. The recipe calls for matzah cake meal which, from what I understand, is just finely ground matzah. I’d recommend going out […]

Almond Butter Thumbprints

I had actually intended to make these for Valentine’s Day, purchased a big ol’ bag of pink and silver-wrapped Kisses, but decided on brownies instead. So, this past weekend, I was trying to find a way to use them now that the bag had dwindled to half its former contents. I have always wanted to […]

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I toldja I was gonna do it! I used some leftover holiday Oreos (I had 12 exactly, how fortuitous!), and bought a pack of pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough for the outside. This pack, however, made jumbo cookies, so I only used one dough square per Oreo. You’ll follow the same drill as you would […]

Peanut Butter Pretzel-Stuffed Cookies

That title is a mouthful, just like the cookies themselves. I’ll make this short and sweet, like the recipe. A friend sent me a link to chocolate chip cookies that were filled with Oreos (yup!!), and I thought, “Maybe I could try something like that!” Except, instead of Oreos, I had peanut butter-filled pretzels. This […]

Pumpkin Macarons

Happy Halloween! I should start off by telling you there’s no pumpkin in this recipe, but a hefty amount of pumpkin pie spice. ‘Pumpkin Pie Spiced Macarons’ is just a super long and not catchy name for a cookie, so there ya go. Plus, well… they look like pumpkins! I’ve made french macarons before, so […]

I went to a cookout this past weekend, and I’m sad that it was the last one of the summer. Boo :(. It was a great afternoon – my friends had scored picnic tables by the beach up in Malibu, and one of them had ordered a bushel and a half of blue crab, which […]

Bridal Shower Sugar Cookies

Recently, a lovely friend of mine commissioned me to bake some goodies as party favors for a bridal shower she was throwing. It was being held at a tea room, and she wanted cookies appropriate for both the location and the purple color scheme, as well as the gift containers, so we decided on biscotti […]

Momofuku Compost Cookies

I know that the name of these cookies might not sound appetizing, but don’t judge them until you’ve tried them. A friend of mine sent me this recipe from the Cooking Channel after she received some from a friend (direct from the restaurant) for her birthday. She then ordered me asked me politely to make […]

In my time as a blogger, I have grown to appreciate the people who visit my page and take the time to leave comments that let me know they were here. Anything from “this looks great,” to a tip on something that might have tripped me up is exciting, because it lets me know people […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Caramel

Sometimes when you’re in the mood to mess around in the kitchen, but don’t really want to try a new recipe, it’s fun to make some small tweaks to a recipe you already know and love. In this case, I used my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe and changed it slightly to replace […]
