Aldean’s Chocolate Pie

Aldean’s Chocolate Pie

A Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition in my family is my grandma’s homemade chocolate pie. This from-scratch chocolate pie is simple and wholesome. It’s just creamy and sweet, cozy and comforting, just as the holidays should be. It’s nothing fancy, and that’s what makes it perfect. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake. Cream cheese in the peanut butter frosting to cut through some of the richness. A peanut butter fudge ganache. I first made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for Alex’s birthday 7 years ago. We had a party, fed it

What if I told you that you could make a delicious flourless chocolate cake with very little fuss? That if you bungled the recipe, it would still be delicious? That, my friend, is this Chocolate Truffle Cake. No separating eggs, no electric mixers necessary. It’s

Double Chocolate Scones

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 Hot Cocoa Mix

Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix

I love homemade hot chocolate, made with milk or rich cream, but sometimes it’s cold and you want something a little easier and kid-friendly (and lighter). When I do, I turn to this Hot Cocoa Mix recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown’s. What do
