Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

These crunchy chocolate mint cookies are a riff on Thin Mints, and I suppose if you dipped them in chocolate instead of drizzling, they would be exactly alike. I’ve always been a big fan of Thin Mints, and I will definitely be making these again. They’re a great addition to your holiday cookies, but they’ll … Continue reading »

Chewy Ginger Cookies

These chewy ginger cookies are really gingery from three kinds of ginger, and you can make them crispy if you bake them longer. They are also apparently great with peanut butter slathered between to make a cookie sandwich. It’s not the holidays until we have some spice cookies around the house. Chewy Ginger Cookies 2 … Continue reading »

Caramel Apple Cider

Nothing says fall like apple cider. I love curling up with a book in my favorite chair with a hot, steamy mug apple cider spiked with homemade caramel and cinnamon. It also makes a great warm drink for holiday parties. Caramel Apple Cider 1 cup apple cider 1 teaspoon caramel sauce 1 cinnamon stick Warm … Continue reading »

Roasted Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We survived the hurricane without any damage beyond getting a little stir-crazy, so I have to feel pretty grateful. We didn’t lose power or have any terrible flooding, but all we could do for days was watch the damage on TV. Of course, one of my first plans of action was to get to work … Continue reading »

Zucchini Bread

This is another updated post, I thought it was time to give one of my favorite breakfast treats some better pictures. I love zucchini bread, and it’s always my go-to breakfast to bring on the road. We are off to the beach for a week and I’m bringing this loaf to munch on for breakfast. … Continue reading »

Plum Skillet Cake

The best part about this cake is that it’s incredibly easy and done in half an hour. It’s part clafouti (which is a french pancake-like tart), part cake, and you can make it with any kind of fruit. I think next time I would cut the fruit smaller and try to squeeze in more, but … Continue reading »

S’mores Brownies

┬áThese are quite the decadent treat, combining chewy brownies with gooey s’mores. It’s definitely a little bit of a sugar overload, but fresh from the oven they are amazing and rich. The brownie batter is one of the easiest to make, and would be great by itself– just bake a little less to keep them … Continue reading »

Strawberry Cake

Strawberries are probably my favorite fruit. Or maybe blueberries. Either way, I overdose on all things strawberry when I see huge spreads of them at the farmers market. At some point, I decided I wanted to try them in some cake and I found a recipe on Smitten Kitchen that I edited a bit. This … Continue reading »

Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are a favorite of mine during the summer. I love the tart freshness, especially when it’s hot outside. This recipe from the Flour Bakery cookbook is a pretty decadent version, with lots of eggs and butter, but it’s worth it. Fortunately, I brought these to a barbeque, so I wasn’t tempted to eat … Continue reading »

Strawberry Tart

Fruit tarts are probably my favorite dessert ever. I remember birthdays when I wanted a fruit tart instead of cake. This one has a flaky crust and pastry cream that isn’t too heavy. Plus, I found some delicious strawberries at the farmers market. I thought about just strewing them on top stems and all because … Continue reading »
