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 […]

Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

In Southern New Jersey, I live near farms where I can pick blueberries for 4 weeks every summer. Hammonton, only a 30 minute drive from me, calls itself the blueberry capital of the world. And indeed, New Jersey blueberries are fantastic. I’m a recent transplant […]

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.

Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other […]

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy early Pi Day! I thought about waiting until tomorrow, Pi Day , to talk about pie, but honestly, which is better? Making a pie on Pi Day, or making the pie the day before so you can eat it on Pi Day? I’d rather you […]

Sprinkle Scones

Sprinkle Scones

One of my goals for 2018 is to make fun weekend breakfasts. I’ve done this most weekends so far. One breakfasty thing I’ve missed has been scones, which I used to make all the time. So I knew that I had to make these Sprinkle […]
