Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

gooey-choc-pb-cookies-7.jpg

Fact: everything is cuter in miniature size. Fact: Miniature sizes mean miniature calories. Fact: The “miniature calories” rule still applies when you take said cute miniature things and stuff them into giant cookies. Giant gooey, chocolatey, taste bud exploding-y cookies. Facts don’t lie, right? I’m pretty sure that math adds up. These ridiculous chocolate bombs…

Strawberry Rhubarb Pavlova

As you might know, I’m married to a very enthusiastic eater. It’s wonderful. He appreciates all of the desserts I slave over, but he also likes the ones that sort of flop. Making a cake that totally sinks, or cookies that spread into shapeless blobs, doesn’t feel like a complete failure when there’s someone eagerly…

Strawberry-Dusted Shortbread Stars

Are you familiar with freeze-dried fruit? I first fell in love with this genius product a few years ago, when Trader Joe’s started carrying a few varieties. (TJ’s is the source of most of my culinary obsessions, but to fall in love with a product they carry is to open yourself up to heartbreak when…

Cream Cheese Cake with Red Velvet Fudge Frosting

Fun fact: if you look up “showstoppers” on Google images, you get a lot of pictures of girls in lingerie, marquee lights, Barry Manilow references (??), and at least one My Little Pony picture. What’s missing from these results? No, not more My Little Pony Pictures. This gorgeous showstopper of a cake: Okay, so you…

Blueberry Toasted Coconut Tart

This summer we’ve turned into blueberry fanatics, and it’s all thanks to one 14-month old shorty. I’ve always been more of a raspberry girl, but when we took a family trip to the farmer’s market about a month ago, and let Asher sample a few blueberries from a stall, he went crazy for them. He…

Cookies and Cream Oreo Bars

You might be familiar with Captain Ahab from Moby-Dick, driven mad by his search for the white whale. The story’s all well and good, in an English Literature 201 sort of way, but believe me when I tell you that that guy’s obsessiveness has nothing on me and my own hunt for an unattainable object…

Chocolate Mustache Pops

So, what’s the consensus on the mustache fad? Are mustache accessories and jokes still funny? Totally over? Tired, but finishing one last lap around the pop culture track? And what about chocolate mustaches? Does the addition of chocolate change the answer at all? I really, really hope you said that chocolate mustaches are still “in,”…

Dude Food Magic Bars

This coming Sunday is Father’s Day, to which I say, psssh. In my house we’re celebrating Father’s Week. If you’re not familiar with this made-up custom, Father’s Week is a magical week when Jason gets a new gift every single day leading up to Father’s Day. This sounds super fancy and over-the-top, until I tell…
