Chocolate Chip & Walnut Banana Muffins

On Friday, there was a sign next to a plate of overripeĀ bananas that said, “For Banana Bread” on it. I wasn’t sure if it was a suggestion, or a claim, so I added my own post-it saying if someone was looking for offers that I could take care of it, and the original writer found […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I was inspired to make these last weekend, in addition to the corn muffins, because the Giants also had a breakfast game. I didn’t know our full regular crowd wouldn’t be there, so I made a dozen (well, a baker’s dozen), but it worked out just fine with everyone getting to have more than one. […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies – With Bacon!

Ashleigh and I were at it again in her kitchen last week. What does that mean, exactly? It means she was busy baking and I was frolicking around her kitchen taking pictures of all her hard work. (I helped some too!) She and her husband were hosting a movie marathon at her place and so […]

Chocolate Chip Muffins

These chocolate chip muffins, adapted from the Double Chocolate Muffins recipe in The Joy of Cooking (pg. 636), are an integral part of the breakfast of champions. I made them recently when I was helping some friends out with crafts services (fooooood) on a commercial shoot. (I also made Oatmeal Bran Muffins on request.) I […]

Up ’til 7:30am because of a 24 Marathon Birthday Bars

Although these are actually chocolate chip peanut butter bars, I decided the ridiculously long name Up ’til 7:30am because of a 24 Marathon Birthday Bars were more appropriate. Here’s why… My friend’s birthday was on July 3rd, and she loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so I figured I’d make her something with that flavor combo […]

A Simple Little Cookie

I had a lovely President’s Day Weekend, especially since we had an extra day off work. Who doesn’t love that? Although I love not having to work, that doesn’t mean I can go 3 days without seeing my coworkers. The Boys, as I affectionately call the 2 guys I work with that are practically my […]

Jersey Shore and Biscotti

At work a week and a half ago we had a Jersey Shore viewing party. If you don’t know about Jersey Shore, you’re probably better off, but I LOVE IT! Total guilty pleasure show, but I’m not as ashamed of it as you might think – or maybe as I should be. Anyways, I’m not […]

Top of the mornin’, blueberry

Blueberry muffins. Is there anything better? Part dessert, part breakfast food, and chock full of fresh berries (if you’re doing it right!). I’ve made these for my coworkers before, during blueberry season. How could I not? I can’t eat all those berries by myself, though I try. Sometimes I switch it up with chocolate chips, […]
