Chewy Macadamia White Chocolate Bars

Today’s cookies are a long awaited reward for some friends who ran the Capitol 10K, a big running event here in Austin.  Have I mentioned just how active people are in this city? It’s good because it makes me feel less guilty serving desserts. All this running demands fuel, right? Fuel in the form of […]

Peanut Butter Brookie

Today’s recipe is from Stef, who loves to bake and share recipes on Canarsie Cookies.  This “Peanut Butter Brookie” is one of her creations, and I was lucky to be on the receiving end of a half dozen. Stef makes her brookies (half brownie, half cookie) with organic peanut butter cookie dough and brownie batter […]

Quinoa Blondies

This weekend we visited Half Price Books and found a big stack of Eating Well magazines for a dollar each.  Score!  Or so you’d think.  I didn’t feel like spending much money and only bought two.  Maybe I’ll go back and buy the rest on Saturday, but for now here’s a recipe from one of […]

Peanut Butter Candy Bar Blondies

One of the nice things about fall is that the baking aisle expands somewhat and stores in my area start carrying new products.  Case in point, the new  Hershey’s Baking Melts which I found last week while searching for some milk chocolate to put in  mousse-topped cupcakes.   The cost of a 10 oz bag of […]

Triple Chip Toasted Pecan Bars

These are dense, not-too-cakey, packed with interesting flavors and quite simple. The batter is made in one saucepan and the recipe doesn’t require an electric mixer. If you don’t have all three flavors of chips, use 1 1/4 cups of whatever flavor you do have. 5.0 from 1 reviews …

white chocolate peanut almond blondies

Here’s another tribute to my dad’s favorite candy, the Zero Bar. I got the idea from this Zero Bar inspired cookie, where white chips, peanuts and almond extract mimic the flavor of a Zero Bar. Here, the same idea is carried over into a bar cookie. Does it really taste like a Zero bar? No!  […]

Butterscotch, Walnut and Oat Bars

I’ve been craving cookies with lots of oats and nuts lately — specifically, Monster Cookies. However, I already have so many Monster recipes that I decided to try something a little different. Unlike my favorite Monsters (that sounds like a sixties tv show, doesn’t it?), these cookies do not have peanut butter and are baked […]

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Bars

Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Bars

Thanks for all the suggestions on what brands and what type of almond milk to buy. I’ve officially finished the first carton and am ready for more, but until then I’m still stuck in this brownie/blondie mode. Now I did make a marble cake yesterday, but it was such a convoluted and weird recipe I’m […]
