Peanut Butter Brookies

I layered the cookie dough and the brownie batter in a pan, baked, and cut them into squares. They were really fun to give away to my peanut butter loving brother.

Roasted Red Pepper Hot Cheese Dip

This week, I figured it was about time for me to put a bunch of cheese together and get it all warm and melty and eat it with Wheat Thins. It was a brilliant and tasty idea.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Not that there’s anything wrong with a plain old, ordinary peanut butter cookies or anything, but sometimes it’s fun to just take them to the next level. Know what I mean?

Caramel Layer Cake

Yes, you can eat caramel year-round but there’s something about caramel that pairs so well with fall and winter flavors.

Almond Shortbread Fingers

Since it’s almost Halloween, I figured some fake blood and body parts were in order.

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I was worried that Chocolate Sugar Cookies would be too boring and cliche, so I spiced them up with some adorable holiday decorations.

September Wrap-Up

Pumpkin Cookie Bars with Cinnamon Icing

One nice thing about pumpkin is it is naturally wet, which means you can use it to replace eggs in a baking recipe. Lots of pumpkin recipes are sort of naturally egg-free. Which is nice for the egg-allergy crowd. Especially if they are also the pumpkin-loving crowd.

Bacon Cheese Pecan Bites

I’m calling these A.C.A.B. Pecan Bites, named after a culinary code that my husband and I seem to agree on: when all else fails, *A*dd *C*heese *A*nd *B*acon.

Chocolate Cheesecake

To make this cheesecake, I started with my great-grandfather’s recipe. We knew him as Grandpa Chuck, but when he was cooking, he preferred Chowhound Charlie, making the official title of this recipe “Chowhound Charlie’s New York Cheesecake.”

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were inspired by one gorgeous bag of dark brown sugar. They are soft, chewy cookies with a rich molasses flavor. Match made in heaven, if you ask me.

Banana Pudding

The Fruitarian has been begging for another taste of this pudding. Of the hundreds of recipes on this humble blog, this pudding, and the parfait I made with it, are his most memorable.
