Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Share

Please excuse the fact that I’m posting yet another chocolate chip cookie recipe, but these are different from all the others. They really are. These cookies reminded me of those soft-baked Entenmann’s chocolate chip cookies that come in a box from the supermarket, but these cookies are much better.

When I made these, I used a […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Share

These are the best banana muffins I have ever eaten. Really. I don’t know if it was that fact that I had incredibly overripe bananas, or the fact that I substituted mascarpone cheese for the sour cream called for in the original recipe, but whatever it was, these muffins were incredibly delicious. My boys wished […]

Chocolate Chip Meringues

Share

What do you do when you have 8 extra egg whites? You make meringues! In the winter, specifically around the holidays, I make these meringues dipped in mint chocolate. They’re really delicious, but they seem holiday-like to me, so I looked for another recipe. I’ve always wanted […]

Mocha Chocolate Ice Box Cake

Share

I have had my eye on this recipe ever since I received the Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That? cookbook for Christmas over a year ago.  Recently one of my aunts told me how wonderful the recipe was, so I knew I had to make it.   I’m in two book clubs, one is co-ed […]

Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Share

I’m still pretty new to making biscotti, but I have to say that biscotti are very easy to make.    I always thought biscotti looked difficult, but they’re really not.   There’s an extra cooking step to the recipe, but that’s about it.   Because you make the cookies in a big loaf, they’re actually less time-consuming to […]

Coconut Blondies

Share

Made these for a PTA meeting recently and received rave reviews. I thought they were delicious. The toasted coconut was a really nice addition. These bars are definitely sweet, but if you only eat a small square, they’re perfect.

When I toasted my coconut, I found that it browned unevenly, […]

Tate's Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies

Share

If you like thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies, these are for you. The recipe comes from Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton, NY.

We went to visit my parents last weekend and I brought a box of chocolate chip cookies from Gourmet Garage which I thought were pretty good. They’re soft and […]

Orange Scones with Chocolate Chips

Share

Ok, so these were really supposed to be cranberry orange scones, but I knew that if I tried to put a single cranberry in them, they would have been patently rejected by the boys. Chocolate chips are safe. Cranberries, no way. I think I would have prefered them with […]

Chocolate Chip Waffles

Share

My boys love waffles for breakfast, and I must admit that we always have a box of Eggo waffles in the freezer for the days when I don’t cook breakfast.  I have made waffles before, but I didn’t have a go-to waffle recipe until now.   I found this recipe about a month ago, and I […]

No-Bake Chewy Granola Bars

Share

My husband went out to play guitar with a bunch of friends tonight and I stayed home with the boys.   It’s a Friday so the boys are allowed to play with their Wii (they’re not allowed to play during the week, so they look forward to Friday afternoons!)   Three of the four like the Wii.   […]
