Peanut Butter Buttercream

These are not the best cupcakes I had for my birthday. In fact, the cake part didn’t come out all that well since I made them on the fly without measuring anything(only to be surprised Saturday night with a batch of homemade banana cupcakes with Nutella frosting). But they were entirely edible if only because…

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s a good think I never made a resolution to eat less sugar because if I did I’d be doing horribly at it. I always like to have something sweet after dinner, whether it’s part of a chocolate bar or just a handful of chocolate chips. That’s probably why I buy a bag and end…

Ina Garten’s Caramel Sauce

I like to think I can make most things without looking up a recipe. I can’t. More than a few first attempts end up in the garbage or down the drain. I don’t think it’s a waste though whenever you try something new and learn from it one way or another. Cooking’s an art, right?…

Homemade Peppermint Patties

I’m a candy addict. I like having a little after every meal; it just leaves a better taste in your mouth than pasta sauce or vegetables ever could. That’s probably why I’ve blogged this recipe 2 or 3 times in the past couple of years. But it’s so good I have to post it again….

7 Favorite Summer Recipes

Summer is an appetite killer. I can’t be the only one who has a hard time being creative in the kitchen and thinking of perfect flavors to mix for dinner when it’s 90 degrees outside and humid. I’d rather take out the ice cream and call it a night. Mashed potatoes and gravy aside, there…

Easy Reese’s Fudge

On a trip to New York a couple weeks ago, I had an hour to kill in Times Square. It’s probably no surprise I made a beeline for the M&M store and then quickly followed over to the Hershey’s store. Anywhere that sells that much chocolate should be a tourist destination in itself. I still…

Oat Flour Brownies

If there’s one thing I could make with my eyes closed, it’s brownies. I think my 6th sense is knowing when brownies are done in the oven without a timer. I can tell this is another brownie recipe I’ll come back to time and time again. One commenter mentioned that she uses oat flour in…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

It’s been a busy month. This blog(and cooking anything without a microwave in general) have taken a bit of a back seat. Hopefully someday soon I’ll have a more regular schedule and school off my shoulders but right now sporadic will have to do. Thankfully you can make some pretty great things with a microwave…

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you find a recipe that just works, you never want to stray from it. This is the third time I’ve posted about these cookies; I didn’t realize that the original recipe post is almost 2 years old until I sat down to write this one. In that time a lot of commenters have made…
