One of my sons made these the other day. He’s a huge cookie dough fan. We actually went downtown a couple of weekends ago to a shop called DÕ. All they sell is cookie dough. It’s served like ice cream and it’s such a phenomenon in NYC that it’s almost impossible to get in. We […]
How many of my boys eat these? 2/4, only 50%. Two of them claim they don’t like cheese, so they won’t go near them. I tried to explain that these don’t taste like the cheese that they claim they don’t like, but they weren’t buying it. I say, more for the rest of us!
These brownies […]
This is now my favorite way to eat Rice Krispies treats. They’re really incredibly good and the boys (except for one who claims not to like caramel) went wild for them. So did some of their friends. The addition of caramel, chocolate and salt pushed these treats over the top.
The recipe calls for pre-made caramel […]
I am one of the co-presidents of my sons’ school PTA and I bring cookies to each of our Executive Board meetings. This time, I brought unfinished cookies. I started to make these cookies too late in the afternoon (the story of my life!), so I only had time to dip the bottoms in chocolate. […]
This recipe is not for the faint of heart. It’s a two-day process that involves yeast, a fair amount of hands-on time, a stand mixer, and lots of rising. Mine took much longer to rise than the directions indicated, but in the end, I had two beautiful loaves chocolate babka. My boys can’t get enough […]
One of my sons has started to enjoy baking. He has a penchant for edible chocolate chip cookie dough, and by edible, I mean the kind that doesn’t have raw eggs, so we’ve been through a lot of cookie dough recipes recently, like cookie dough dip made with mascarpone cheese (not so good) and cookie […]
This is a dessert that one of my sons has made several times recently. It’s certainly not fancy, nor is it particularly gourmet, but what it is, is delicious! It’s hard to go wrong with graham crackers, vanilla pudding and chocolate. I can do without the artificial Cool Whip, but it does make the pudding […]
Meringues are one of my favorite cookies. I can eat them by the fistful. I love that they’re light and airy and are perfect if you want just a little something to satisfy a sweet-tooth.
This is a recipe that you need to start well in advance of when you need them. It doesn’t take long […]
