Magic Blondies

Today’s recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart, and it had been on my “to try” list for ages. My concern was that these muffins/cookie things would be pretty, but not very tasty.  Luckily, I was wrong.  The cake part is very moist without being overly rich and there are enough add-ins to make it interesting. These are definitely going in […]

crunchy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Today’s recipe is from Cindy, who answered my request for a cookie made with a lot of shortening. I wanted to test-drive the fancy new $6.00 Spectrum which I bought earlier this week. As much as I love butter, there’s a certain texture I like in cookies that only shortening can give – a crispy, […]

Update: This may be my all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie. I make a ton of different cookies, but when it’s time for a bake sale or I have to give cookies as a gift, I go back to this one. Adapted from an old Gourmet Magazine recipe ( chocolate chip cookie recipe …

New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie

Update: I’ve been making these a lot lately for bake sales. Their size and shape make them really impressive, but they don’t stay fresh very long so if you make them ahead of time, keep them in the freezer. The best bet is to make the dough ahead of time and bake the …

Back in April, our school had a bake sale, and one of the best selling items was a brownie baked in a muffin tin. I didn’t get to try one, but the kids loved them. A few weeks later, I found a recipe for fudge brownie muffins and added it to my collection. It was […]

If all goes well, I’ll have a few different recipes today. So far, I just have one, and it happens to be something I mentioned a few months ago – Ginger Toffee Cookies, made with Bits o’ Brickle. Bits o’ Brickle is not one of my favorite ingredients because I hate things that stick …

Big Cookies

Sunday evening, during a retail therapy session at World Market, I found some Guittard Super Chips. It was break-through session! See, I’ve been checking World Market off and on for months looking for these chips, but the World Market near my house never had them. So now they do, and I have another chocolate chip to add […]

wrapped brownies

One thing I love about traveling overseas is seeing all the new products and brands specific to that country. Having only been to Mexico and England, my scope is limited, but a lot of grocery stores now have import sections and it’s making the word feel like a smaller place. For instance, our grocery store […]
