Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

This month I made Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons with some egg whites I’d previously frozen. I’d made them once before – the day before I gave birth, in fact. They were the perfect snack for being in the hospital – rich, two-bite indulgences that were […]

Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

Raspberry Coconut Macaroons

The last time Alex was out of town, I finally made Raspberry Coconut Macaroons. He’s not a huge fan of coconut or raspberry, so I made a point to save this recipe for when he traveled. I really looked forward to this recipe. Although I […]

When I decided to make pie for the last potluck I went to, I bought a premade graham cracker crust, just in case I wanted to use it to save time. It ended up not going with that fruit pie I made, but I didn’t […]

84: Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

84: Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think that a lot of my recipe reviews start off with “I had some X that I wanted to use, so I thought I’d make…” This one starts no differently. When I came across the recipe for Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies, I was […]
