Desserts

I adore desserts. It’s no surprise that recipes for sweets equal (or perhaps outnumber) recipes for anything savory.

Here are recipes galore for cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, and brownies.

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie

Many people love fruit pies. Not me. I love fruit, but it’s best fresh or dried, and usually unsweetened. Let’s have fruit as part of our meal, and have our dessert be a pie that’s smooth and creamy, like this Coconut Cream Pie. Coconut Cream […]

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with […]

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it […]

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

Homemade Chocolate Marshmallows

I make 3 or 4 batches of homemade marshmallows each year, and have been doing so for the last 7 or 8 years. I love them. A couple of these batches are always Chocolate or Chocolate Chip Marshmallows. I’ve never been a big marshmallows person […]

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

I started making fruitcake for my extended family for Christmas in 2004 or 2005. I didn’t foist it on them; I only started making it after they told me, unprompted, that they liked fruitcake! I was thrilled to have an excuse to make it. Ever […]

Apple Cider Donut Cake

Apple Cider Donut Cake

My friend Jen loves apples, and knows I love recipes. One day during Fall 2012, she sent me a recipe for an Apple Cider Donut Cake. I looked for a reason to make it all autumn, but lacked either the ingredients or the time. I finally […]

Cookie Bars!

Cookie Bars!

Even after countless cookie recipes I’ve made on this blog, one of my favorite sweets to make is these cookie bars. They only take 5 ingredients, and no mixing bowl! They’re so incredibly easy and hands-off to make. And so incredibly delicious. I always keep […]

Fudge Brownies

Fudge Brownies

Fudge brownies are my newest favorite brownies. They hit all the right notes. They’re thick and dense, rich and very chocolatey. Fudgy but a little cakey. Full of chocolate chips. I first wrote about this recipe three years ago, but even better – I’ve streamlined […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These delicious, gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars epitomize compromise. For instance, you need to make a dessert for a potluck. You want to make cookies for a potluck. But you don’t really want to make cookies for a potluck. You know, the dough-scooping. Making sure cookies […]

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

It’s been 8 years since I first made Alton Brown’s Plain Ole’ Brownies (as part of my 365 Recipe Challenge). I’ve often felt that, although I attempted the brownies two or three times, I didn’t quite do them justice.* So I finally tried them again.
