Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

The idea of this cookie dough dip really appeals to me. It’s all about the chocolate chips. The dip, and whatever you dip in it, is just a delivery system for the chocolate chips.

Peanut Butter Snickers Ice Cream Pops

This week, I decided my portable snacks ought to be homemade, and since I recently purchased some new popsicle molds, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. Also, it gave me an excuse to eat Snickers.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

I actually regret teaching my kids this recipe, because now every other time I come in the kitchen, I find empty cocoa packets on the counter, a dirty blender in the sink, and empty whipped cream can, and most importantly, no frozen hot chocolate for me.

Orange Blueberry Whoopie Pies

I love everything about citrus fruits, except eating them plain. Personally, I’d rather bake with the oranges. Which is what I did today.

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

Dipping things in chocolate is all the rage. It’s like the trend that never goes out of style, because it’s always awesome.

Butterscotch Blondies

Mom used to make these in a sheet pan and cut the crust off before serving them. Grandpa would always sneak into the kitchen and eat the crusts. He always said they were the best part! I think he was also a little worried my mom would throw them away.

May 2014 Wrap-up

I know it’s such a boring and cliche thing to say, but seriously?! I cannot believe May is over. This entire year has flown by me way too quickly. And you know me, I love remembering where I’ve been as much as I love planning where I’m going, which means it’s time for another monthly wrap-up post.

S’mores Cookies

This is not my first time baking with graham crackers. In fact, adding some graham cracker crumbs to the chocolate chip cookies is just SO fantastic. It gives a little unexpected oomph to the cookies. I figured some marshmallow frosting would put these right over the top.

Raspberry Sorbet

Sorbet is crazy simple to make (this one has only 5 ingredients!), and it’s easy to make it really delicious. I added a mint leaf to my dish, and I loved what the mint did for the flavor.

Toasted Coconut Popcorn

Maybe you’ve heard me tell you before how often we eat popcorn, and how much we love coconut. It’s only natural that I should put coconut and popcorn together. Honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t done it before now.

Royal Icing

Royal icing is an icing that is great for decorating cookies, it dries hard so you can stack the cookies and even ship them. It is smooth, pretty, and easy to color any color you want.

Double Chocolate Cookies

I couldn’t get these Double Chocolate Cookies out of my head, mainly because of the one ingredient that makes them so different. One surprising little spice makes these cookies unique and memorable.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I’m having a chunk of coffee cake right now, as a matter of fact. I’d tell you it helps me think, but honestly, the only thing I’m thinking about is crumb topping. And lots of it.

Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins

I’ve posted this recipe before. I’m posting it again because it’s the all-time best banana muffin in the entire universe. For real, it’s one of the recipes on this blog I am the most proud of.

Pumpernickel Bagels

Why won’t my family eat pumpernickel? It makes no sense. It’s like they don’t appreciate the flavor of rye flour. For me, the amazing flavor of pumpernickel is the main reason I decided to make bagels in the first place. The pumpernickel calls to me. This means that these bagels are seriously dangerous to my diet right now. But I don’t care. Someone pass the cream cheese.
