recipes worth repeating – biscotti and mostly cocoa brownies

I know, I know, repeats. However, since these recipes were slightly different than the first time I made them, I figured I should share. Plus it’s not like I can make brand new stuff every time! Trust me, I tried. Also, there were a couple of family birthdays, and repeat recipes are always good for […]

(mostly) cocoa brownies

I had a request for these brownies a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been meaning to get around to them. Though there’s a ton of stuff I have logged away waiting to be baked, this request was made by one of my favorite coworkers so I bumped it to the top of the list. […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Here’s a belated Valentine’s treat for you. I found these on Annie’s Eats, and I couldn’t resist making them for the coworkers before the long weekend. They didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, I suspect overmixing was the cause, but they certainly looked cute! I heard from most everyone that they were extremely […]

s’morenies (s’more brownies)

I’ll get to my Superbowl post later in the week, but for now these are WAY more important. My coworker came up with that name, I’m just sorry it didn’t occur to me first. Now, I’m not claiming we’re the first to use the name (or concept) of a s’more brownie, but I’ll tell you […]

Homemade Oreos!

How awesome is it finding a recipe for something you love, and hearing from the people that have already made it that it’s spot on? I was so excited to find this recipe. I figured these were my dad’s favorite cookies, and let’s face it they’ve got to be most peoples’, so I couldn’t wait […]

2010 Tax Season Cookie Rollout – Pinwheel Cookies

Thanks, Mom, for this headline. My father’s an accountant and for a few months every year he disappears into the seemingly infinite abyss of 1040s and W2s and whatnot. I decided I wanted to make him some cookies to help him cope, and when my mother told me he was already losing weight I knew […]

Black and White Cookies

It no doubt stems from the New Yorker in me, but I love Black and White cookies. They’re a perfect balance of chocolate and vanilla, like those half and half dixie cups we used to have on Sundays at camp. (You guys know what I’m talking about.) I always preferred the chocolate half myself, but […]

Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate

One thing I’ve yearned to do is come up with my own recipe for cookies. I don’t have enough experience as a baker to do this fully, but I have picked up on a lot of substitution ideas by reading other baking blogs and comparing similar recipes. Now, it’s probably better to do a recipe […]

Chocolate Crinkles

**I finally realized I should supply you all with new step by step photos of these since I didn’t take them the first time around. Updated 10/3/10** Who doesn’t like a chocolate cookie? Well a bunch of people maybe, but that’s not really my point. These, so far, have been my most requested cookie. I […]
