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.

Hershey’s Best Brownies

Hershey’s Best Brownies

I think everyone needs a good brownie recipe. Certainly, everyone needs a good, fail-safe dessert recipe. One that you know will turn out every time you make it, no matter what. One that takes no time or effort at all to make. Preferably, one that […]

Pecan Fudge Pie

Pecan Fudge Pie

I’ve finally rediscovered a recipe for a Pecan Fudge Pie after, oh, about a decade. It was years ago (maybe 2007?) when I was in Houston and went to a place (a diner? I can’t remember the name) that was supposed to have amazing pies. […]

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 […]

Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

It’s fall and I should be writing about apples and pumpkins and soups. It’s finally cool, and I will cook and write about some of these things soon, I promise. But in the meantime, let’s talk ice cream. I have no particular season for ice […]
