Graham Cracker Bites

Share

My boys LOVE this recipe. Well, three out of four do. The other one likes these, but doesn’t go crazy over them. One of my sons asks me to make these all the time. The boys can’t decide if they like them dipped in dark or white chocolate better. These are reminiscent of s’mores, with […]

Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

Share

If you are a fan of Funny Bones, these cupcakes are for you. The chocolate cake recipe is amazing, as is the peanut butter filling. They taste just like Drake’s Funny Bones without the chocolate coating on the outside, and with a much better chocolate cake. Funny Bones were my favorite of the Drakes cakes […]

Chocolate Ricotta Muffins

I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve officially become more of an occasional food blogger. With four boys in middle school, my time is devoted to them – bringing them here and there, helping with homework, encouraging them to do their homework rather than fool around, etc. I’m still doing a lot of […]

Mallobars

My sisters know that I love to bake so they periodically send me recipes to try.   This was one of them.   I noted that the original recipe is from Melissa Clark, a NY Times food columnist whose recipes I have enjoyed in the past, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

My assessment:   this […]

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Share

I have made these three times in the last two weeks. I like them because they have a great chocolate flavor, they’re very easy to make, and I always almost have all of the ingredients on hand. I made them for a bake sale at the boys’ school recently and I was told that everyone […]

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Share

This is now one of my favorite desserts. These ice cream sandwiches are so much better than the ones that you buy in the store! They’re easy to make too. I hesitated to make them at first, envisioning a very thin brownie layer sticking to my pan, or breaking as I tried to pick it […]

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Energy Bars

Share

These little snacks are healthy, simple to make (there’s no baking involved) and surprisingly delicious. I’ve had the recipe kicking around in my “to-make” list for a while now and I finally decided to try it. I’m still amazed that they only use four ingredients. As I’ve often found, sometimes the simplest recipes are the […]

French Chocolate Macarons

Share

I love looking at macarons in bakeries.  Aren’t they pretty?  They’re typically lined up by color and one looks more perfect than the next.

I have made these numerous times. These cookies are delicious and they impress guests when they’re served. Please don’t confuse macarons with macaroons. Macarons are light cookies made with egg whites and […]

Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Brownies

I’m back!

I know that I haven’t posted for a while. Things have been busy for the past couple of months. Great, but busy.  We bought and moved into a new house. We’re really excited about it. Even though we don’t have a lot of furniture yet, it truly feels like home. […]

Brigadeiros (Brazilian Fudge Balls)

Share

I have had my eye on this recipe for a while now and I decided to make it when I found real chocolate sprinkles (or jimmies as I used to call them when I lived in Boston). Most of the chocolate sprinkles you find in places like supermarkets are made of wax and food coloring. […]
