Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

These Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies are seriously the best. They’re addictive. When I make these, Alex and I polish them off in about a day. Not only are they delicious; they take only 4 ingredients (5 if you top them with nuts), and you’re done […]

Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies

I like pecan pie, but I don’t love it. Even at its best (and the pecan pie recipe I use turns out well whenever I make it), it’s a little too gooey for my taste. Pecans are my favorite nut, so I enjoy a slice, […]

Maryland Fudge Cake

Maryland Fudge Cake

Every now and then, I come across the perfect recipe just when I am looking for it. Sometimes I see a recipe and think, “I should make that sometime.” Other times I come across a recipe and think, “I can make that tonight!” or “I […]

Nutella Cheesecake

Nutella Cheesecake

I was going to make something for a going-away party, and when I asked what the guest of honor’s favorite desserts were, her friends all said that she loved chocolate and peanut butter, Nutella, and the Brownie Cheesecake that I made last month. So it […]

Fudge-topped Sugar Cookies (Berger-style cookies)

Fudge-topped Sugar Cookies (Berger-style cookies)

A few weeks ago I came across a cookie recipe that I couldn’t stop thinking about. A sugar cookie topped with more fudge than there is cookie. Any time I had a snack, I knew it wasn’t those cookies, and I would wonder: why haven’t […]

Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

The weather finally but briefly turned cooler in late September. We took advantage and drove an hour to pick apples. I don’t bother to use Amelia as an excuse. Sure, my 2-year-old had a lot of fun, but I go apple picking for me. I […]

Brownie Cheesecake

Brownie Cheesecake

I rediscovered this brownie cheesecake when I was going through my recipes to make something for Alex’s birthday (ultimately, a chocolate caramel cheesecake) a few months ago. I honestly don’t remember when I first made this – it could have been years ago, could have been […]

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

My breakfast is boring, and has been for a while. I have a bowl of oatmeal every morning. Since having Amelia, I stick with old-fashioned oats over quick oats since they have the better texture. I love steel cut oats, but they take too long […]

Multigrain Sandwich Bread

Multigrain Sandwich Bread

Fall-like weather has made an appearance here in South Jersey. I love fall. Autumn is a great time to do some baking. In the spring, I finally began to make bread again. I didn’t make bread as often as I’d hoped to do, but I […]

Confetti Cake

Confetti Cake

I’ve never been a sprinkles person – at least, not since I was very young. I don’t choose something to eat solely based on decoration or appearance, not since I was 5 or 6 and chose the Pink Bubble Gum ice cream from Baskin Robbins […]
