Peanut & Pretzel SuperBars (For the Super Bowl)

superbars-recipe-17.jpg

I am the furthest thing you can imagine from a legitimate sports fan. My “sport” of choice, long-distance trail running, has a total of maybe 3 premiere races and a dozen big names, none of which are recognizable to more than a few hundred running nerds like myself. My very favorite thing about my husband…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Halloween is over and I barely remember it. I didn’t get to go trick or treating, I didn’t get to dress in that “sexy manatee” costume I had planned, and I didn’t eat nearly as many pumpkin-flavored goods as I wanted to. October was a bust and I want a do-over. Fortunately we still have…

Salted Caramel Bars

Jason & I are not one of those “twinny” couples who seem to belong together at first glance–in fact I think our relationship sometimes mystifies people who don’t know us very well. Although I think we’re pretty well matched in the important areas, it’s true that we’re opposite in many ways. I love to run…

TWD: Peanuttiest Blondies

I’m more than a little obsessed with peanut butter–well, with nut butters in general. In my cupboards I have 4 different kinds of peanut butter and 3 other nut butters, and that’s not even counting the coconut butter variations. Some might say I have a problem with nut butter consumption, but one person’s problem is…

TWD: You’re A Hot Mess, Chewy Chunky Blondies

Aaaaahhhhhh we’ve just moved and my entire life is in cardboard boxes. I am a woman of order and am not handling this transition well. My new kitchen, while it has potential for baking greatness, is currently a hot mess: You know what else was a hot mess? These Chewy, Chunky Blondies:

I Decree It Is Coconut Month + 7 Layer Bars

Halfway through emptying my third bag of shredded coconut this past week, my tiny reptilian brain began to glimpse a theme in this month’s baking. Coconut-Chocolate Tiramisu. Coconut Cream Tarts. Could the common thread be red velvet cake? Licorice whips? Monkey pantaloons? No, no, and NO, that’s not it…perhaps coconut? Yes! There has been a…

TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars

It’s only January 19th and already my New Year’s Resolutions are a sad crumpled heap kicked into the corner. I resolved to be a better blogger and ESPECIALLY a better blog commentor–I know I have the worst commenting karma ever and anyone who comments on this blog deserves major props and cupcakes and also apologies,…

TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars

Say hello to entry #276 in the “Not Much To Look At But Darn Tasty” category of desserts: Dorie’s Applesauce Spice Bars. I wasn’t head-over-heels about making this recipe, since it seems very autumn-ish and it’s still only August. More fresh berry desserts, please! However, the day after I made this, we had a beautiful…
