Snickerdoodles of Lust

I have a shameful confession: I have been watching the new 90210 show. This is especially embarrassing because not only is it lowest-common-denominator teenybopper trash, but it’s not even well done trash. Whereas some teen shows can be defended because they provide an endless stream of over-the-top soapy action and questionably awesome fashion, 90210 is dead dull….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

Chipsters, Chunkers, Grabbers…we Doritos continue our obsession with twee-ly named cookies this week. “Chocolate Chunkers” have a rich, fudgy cookie base with lots of melted chocolate (unsweetened and bittersweet) AND cocoa in the batter, which is then loaded with chunks of bittersweet and white chocolate, chopped nuts, and dried fruit.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops

Picasso had his blue period. Woody Allen had his Scarlett Johansson period. And we Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, we are in the midst of our great Cookie Period. Last week we did Chunkariffic Peanutty Buttery Oatey Chocolatey Cookie-y Chubbers (or whatever they were called) and this week we have Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. No boring…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal-Peanut-Chocolate Cookies

I passed on last week’s TWD recipe because I was all alone in the house and couldn’t justify making a big ice cream-ganache cake with only my lonesome to eat it, and my miserly self couldn’t justify using almost a dozen eggs and pounds of chocolate, only to gift the whole thing to friends. There…

Cat Got Your Tongue?

Reasons I was intrigued by this recipe for “Cat’s Tongue” cookies: 1. The name, of course, but more specifically the groan-inducing puns that could be constructed from the name (see title above) 2. The DELICIOUS-sounding description of these cookies as “soft sponge-cake,” with a buttercream filling and a coating of chocolate 3. I am deep…

Cookie Redemption

After the disappointing Granola Grabbers, it seemed time to renew my faith in the goodness of cookies with the mother of all cookiedom, the chocolate chip cookie. I love experimental recipes and fancy ingredients as much as the next foodie, but when it comes to homemade cookies, I usually prefer a simple, honest, unembellished chocolate…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Granola Grabbers

Ah, “Granola Grabbers.” Such an aggressive, puzzling, tantalizing name for what turned out to be a fairly mediocre cookie. I’m hesitant to say that I disliked these cookies, because there was nothing overtly offensive about them, but I will say that I was distinctly underwhelmed. There’s just too much going on! In addition to regular…

Deconstructed Blackberry Pie

My tolerance of summer is a Faustian bargain of sorts. I agree to suffer the indignities of high temperatures for months on end, and in return I get to gorge on all manner of delicious summer produce–especially watermelon and berries. While berries are technically available year-round, the sour pebbles they sell for $5/pint in the…
