TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

This week’s recipe, Chocolate Oatmeal Drops, is a toughie to explain. Imagine cookies with the flavor and texture of brownies. Yum, right? Now mix in…oatmeal. It’s weird, it’s unexpected, but it actually kind of worked. Much like other unusual couplings–french fries with milkshakes, chocolate with bacon, Taylor Swift with Jake Gyllenhaal–sometimes it’s the contrasts that…

TWD: Midnight Crackles

HAPPY NEW YEAR! How has this happened? I wasn’t even used to saying twenty-ten yet, and now we’re already on twenty-eleven. (Cue old-lady grumping about the passage of time and kids these days.) We had an exciting New Year’s Day. I’ll give you a hint: it involved giant dragons… …and marching bands… …and horned frogs…

Hot Chocolate On A Stick

I have a love-hate relationship with hot chocolate. I love that such a product exists. Chocolate! In a cup! Suitable for slurping! I hate that it most often comes from chalky powdered mixes. Ew. I love that hot chocolate goes with everything: marshmallows, candy canes, a nutritious veggie-packed dinner… I hate that it is the…

Make Your Own Candy Cane Joe-Joes

I don’t know what I would do without my local Trader Joe’s grocery store. Where else would I go with a shopping list 3 items long and leave an hour later, $70 poorer and with four overflowing shopping bags stuffed to the brim with impulse buys like chocolate-covered soybeans and freeze-dried mangoes? Yes, Trader Joe’s…

Adventures in Cookie Dough Balls

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, which means most of us are lolling around, trying to shake off yesterday’s food coma while simultaneously justifying today’s breakfast of pumpkin pie + whipped cream (vegetables and dairy!). So I really have no business posting about more desserts, especially desserts that are completely unrelated to pumpkins, apples, pilgrims, or…

TWD: Peanut Buter Crisscrosses

The last time I made peanut butter cookies, I was less than impressed with the results. In fact, I got a little sassy and called the sorry flavorless cookies downright “wussy.” (And I won’t take it back!) So I was definitely ready to try a different peanut butter cookie recipe for this week’s Tuesdays with…

TWD: Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Shortbreads aren’t the kind of cookies I usually crave. I guess they have their place at the side of a coffee cup, but given the choice, I’ll always opt for good old chocolate chip cookies. So as I was dutifully making these cookies, I was already scheming about who I could gift them to–what unsuspecting…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Carrot Cake Cookies

Huzzah! After a week of frantic unpacking leisurely opening a box or two at a time, the new kitchen is finally in workable condition. The best part is, it has a big window and enough room for a wee table on which to take photographs, so there’ll be no more carrying food from the kitchen…
