2-Ingredient Nutella Mousse

Hey hey, it’s World Nutella Day! …for about 2 more hours. Sorry, I’ve been too busy filling my pie-hole (mousse-hole?) with Nutella Mousse to get this post up in a timely fashion. But the good news is that you don’t need an official holiday to enjoy this dessert. All you need is Nutella, heavy cream,…

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…

Layered Peanut Butter Brownies

So how are those New Year’s Resolutions coming? Been hitting the gym twice a day, have you? Just saying no to carbs of all shapes and sizes? Enjoying your thrice-daily egg white and protein powder omelets? Yeah, me too. High five! Oh wait, except I didn’t make any resolutions, I’ve been skipping workouts more this…

Peppermint Crunch Brownies

You know what’s overrated? Timeliness. Anyone can make Christmas treats in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Complete chumps can blog about Christmas goodies before the day arrives. It takes real dedication, real grit, to make and write about Christmas treats after the fact. Fortunately, I’m about as gritty as they come. Allow me to…

Gooey Chocolate Cookies

You guys, I am in the midst of writing a cookbook and it is eating my brain and consuming my life. Anytime I want to use my computer I have to go all Indiana Jones and excavate my desk from the mounds of chocolate-smudged files covering it. I haven’t seen my friends in weeks but…

Doughnut Hot Chocolate. Yeah, That Happened.

I have a google alert set for various “candy” and “chocolate” keywords, so when articles are published about these subjects, I get an email notification. Usually the listings are pretty tame and repetitive, but the most perplexing item popped up in one of my alert emails yesterday. “Doughnut Hot Chocolate.” Picture me cocking my head…

Chocolate Granola

Chocolate granola is the best idea I’ve ever regretted. It goes like this, see. Jason used to have an expensive addiction to breakfast cereals. That boy was eating us out of house and home, one $5 box of fancy-pants cereal at a time. I felt bad chastising him (breakfast IS the most important meal of…

Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

I didn’t mean to post another pumpkin recipe so soon. “Play it cool, Liz,” I thought. “Space them out so people don’t think you’re a pumpkin freak. How about a nice vanilla cake recipe?” But then the sky split open. After a cloudy Sunday morning and a mostly-clear afternoon, a monstrous rainstorm just swooped in,…
