If you’re a fan of chocolate and peanut butter cups, these cookies are for you! They’re very easy to make – as easy as making chocolate chip cookies. I bought a container of mini peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s and they were exactly the right size for this recipe. We all loved these cookies. [...]
A girlfriend came to visit us on Shelter Island this summer and she has a dairy allergy. I enjoy making ice cream in the summer, but knew she couldn’t have any, so I searched for some kind of frozen treat that she could eat.
I love this recipe because it only has four ingredients and you [...]
This summer I made some lowbrow, but delicious snacks for the kids. This was one of them. It’s called Puppy Chow and it’s chocolate and sugar coated Chex cereal.

I’m a big fan of crumb cake for breakfast. My favorite part is the crumb topping, but the cake part isn’t bad either. I saw this recipe and was grabbed by the title. Anything with a chocolate cinnamon swirl is right up my alley.
This coffee cake reminded me of something that you’d buy at Starbucks. [...]
