Chocolate-Pistachio Sandwich Cookies

Is it weird that I’m super into pistachios? Pistachios are not trendy. They are not “having a moment.” They are not on anyone’s pop culture radar. Bacon? Bacon is still the foodie’s darling. Salted caramel is still going strong. Macarons are the new cupcake, and cupcakes are the old cupcake, which is to say: still…

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Can we talk? Specifically, can we talk about “brownie” recipes that call for things like black beans and applesauce and sugar substitutes, instead of gobs of chocolate and eggs and wonderful, wonderful, butter? Specifically-er, can we talk about how those things may be made by health-conscious, well-intentioned people, and some folks might enjoy them, and…

Caramel Cheesecake-Topped Brownies

Not to get all meta on you, but I really struggled with a name for these bars. (This might sound ridiculous, but I know you fellow food bloggers understand what I’m talking about!) Names are important. Which would you rather eat: Oreo Truffles, or Smooshed Cookies Mixed With Dairy Product and Mashed Into A Vaguely…

Pssst, remember lava cakes? The menu mainstay of classy dessert joints for the past decade or so?

Enjoying your thrice-daily egg white and protein powder omelets? Yeah, me too. High five! Oh wait, except I didn’t make any resolutions, I’ve been skipping workouts more this…

Peppermint Crunch Brownies

You know what’s overrated? Timeliness. Anyone can make Christmas treats in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Complete chumps can blog about Christmas goodies before the day arrives. It takes real dedication, real grit, to make and write about Christmas treats after the fact. Fortunately, I’m about as gritty as they come. Allow me to…

TWD: Honey-Nut Brownies

Things You Should Know About Honey-Nut Brownies 1. They sound like a delicious breakfast cereal 2. They look and taste more like a honey cake than a chocolate brownie 3. They are much improved by a thick layer of fudgy chocolate-sour cream frosting 4. There is nothing in the world that is not much improved…

Marzipan Brownie Tart

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate, we had this festive dessert: Okay, so it doesn’t look very festive from the outside. Actually, it looks downright plain. Homely. FRUMPY. There, I said it. But it has a surprise inside… A bright green layer of homemade pistachio marzipan! …Wait, come back.
