Caramel Shortbread Squares

I’m not much for storebought candy bars, but when I do have my choice of the prepackaged stuff, I usually go for a Twix. I like the shortbread/caramel/chocolate combination (and let’s petition for a dark chocolate-only policy, thankyouverymuch) and I like how light and crispy the bar is, as opposed to some of its heftier…

Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

We bought our Christmas tree this past weekend! Now my house is officially 73% cheerier, 45% good-smellier, 26% baby-endangeringer, and 100% pine-needlier than it was before. I love, love, love walking into the front room and seeing our tree decked out with glowing lights and sparkling ornaments. If there was a way to hug the…

Sugar Cookie Pinwheels

Happy Halloween! You may be wondering why I’m sharing a Halloween cookie with you today, when you have next to no chance of actually making them on Halloween. Well, friends, it’s call “procrastination” and “poor time management.” Stick around awhile and you’ll find plenty of both. On the bright side, these sugar pinwheel cookies don’t…

Truffle-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the perks-slash-problems of having a job that involves making candy at home is that, at the end of the day, I end up with a lot of candy at home. (Duh.) It’s awesome because I love eating sweets, but it’s also dangerous, because: see above. Some weeks I do a good job of…

Mounds Cookies (Coconut-Filled Chocolate Cookies)

I have a killer cookie recipe to share with you today. But first, a short diversion. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard the Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe” about a million more times than you’ve ever wanted to. I don’t know what sorcery goes into making a fiercely annoying…

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….
