Cookies and Bars

Eating for Two

December 17, 2013

A lot has happened since my last post. I graduated from pastry school at the end of July after 9 awesome months. Around that time, I found out what I’d be doing for the next 9 months… That’s right…I’ve got a bun in the oven and he’s apparently the size of a rutabaga (according to […]


Two years ago today I was at the River Palm Cottages and Fish Camp in Jensen Beach FL. I woke up the morning of June 13th and frosted five dozen red velvet cupcakes that I’d made the night before (with the generous help of family and friends). A few hours later, I put on a […]


I spent my supposed last day on earth eating a ridiculous quantity of these chocolate chip cookies. I ate one for breakfast and from there I just couldn’t stop. Guys…we’re still here. Phew. Earthquakes, floods and zombies would have prevented me from trying out my new ice cream maker (among other things), and that would […]


I love energy/protein/nutrition/snack bars, but sometimes the ingredient lists scare me. I don’t care how nutritious something claims to be; if I can’t pronounce half of the ingredients listed on the package, I’m pretty sure it’s not so good for me. One of my favorite bars is the Larabar brand, which is made with minimal, […]

In honor of Fat Tuesday, I would like to share these buttery, ooey-gooey brownies with you. Until now, my brownie-baking was done using boxed mixes (which I had been completely happy with). When Bon Appetit magazine proclaimed the stack of brownies on last month’s cover to be the “best-ever” I figured it was time to […]


Peanut butter cookies are D’s favorites, so a lot of peanut butter cookie making/eating goes on in this apartment. I’ve made this recipe so many times, I’ve lost count. I’m not going to say that this is the best pb cookie I’ve ever ever had- but it’s the easiest cookie in the world to make and […]


Ginger-Molasses Cookies

February 28, 2011

I saw a bag of ginger molasses cookies at Trader Joe’s the other day and was tempted to pick one up, but then I thought, “I bet those are really easy to make.” And so I made them. And it was easy. And they were awesome. I know that a lot of people associate these […]


Linzer Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day! This day has a lot of haters, but I’ve always been a fan; even in the years that I was freshly single/heartbroken/bitter/lonely. Valentine’s Day is not a romantic holiday in my mind; it’s a day that serves as a reminder to appreciate those that you love…right? So…friends and reader- I love and […]

This is the other naughty treat that I brought to my Superbowl shindig on Sunday. These no-bake bars are one of my mom’s favorite desserts, and although I’ve eaten countless numbers of them since I was a kid, this was the first time I’ve made them. I was surprised at how many people had never […]


Snickerdoodle Blondies

February 7, 2011

Superbowl Sunday is such a great excuse for a party/get-together: you’ve got beer, salty snacks, betting pools, commercials and a half-time spectacle. Oh, and football of course. For me, it’s the perfect opportunity to whip up big batches of sugary, fatty desserts and then quickly get them out of my kitchen. Because of Superbowl Sunday, […]
