Zucchini Whoopie Pies

I think I’m the only person in the world without a zucchini problem right now. It’s like this: I live in an apartment building, on the third floor. There is not a dirt plot to be found within blocks. Ain’t nothing growing in my little piece of the city. The internet may be full of…

M&M Skillet Cookie

So I was making these candy flags last month. I had navy and white candies, but I needed a small amount of red candies to finish the design, so I bought a medium-sized bag of M&Ms. After sorting through the candies, I had a pathetic little pile of reds, barely enough to even call a…

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, I had a baby somewhat recently. In the first few weeks after giving birth, before I’d received approval to start exercising again, I was full of daydreams about how awesome it was going to be to get back in shape. I pictured intense, sweat-drenched workout sessions and virtuous meals chock full of fresh vegetables….

TWD: Hazelnut Biscotti

For Tuesdays with Dorie this week we made biscotti. This is actually the third time I’ve made a biscotti recipe for TWD (previously, and again) which left me perplexed as to what I should say about them. Crunchy cookies are crunchy cookies, am I right? In previous biscotti posts I’ve shared the story about how…

Junior Mint Cookies–And A New Arrival

Hello! Hi! Howdy! I’ve been away a solid month and I have missed you all. Here’s a little project I was working on in my absence: Our little sugarbaby is 4 weeks old today! He’s sweet-natured, loves to eat (just like his parents!), and is, in our entirely biased opinions, completely adorable. He’s also more…

TWD: Rugelach

This week’s TWD recipe was, without a doubt, the most legit rugelach I’ve ever made. It included not one, but two different cinnamon-sugar mixtures, and about fifty different kinds of dried fruit and nuts. It required something called prune lekvar, for crying out loud. It took way too many chilling periods for someone like me,…

Kettle Corn Cookies

It all started innocently enough. I was browsing my local Trader Joe’s and saw this strange specimen staring at me from the shelves:  (Pay no mind to the lousy Instagram photo) Little known fact: I have become a wee bit obsessed with kettle corn in the last few months. Widely known fact: I am more…

Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m a freezer nibbler. This doesn’t mean I go around compulsively gnawing on the corners of refrigerators and freezers (although what I do on my own time is my own business, thankyouverymuch). Rather, I’m one of those people who stash extra baked goods in the freezer and eat them later. I do this for a…
