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,…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Halloween is over and I barely remember it. I didn’t get to go trick or treating, I didn’t get to dress in that “sexy manatee” costume I had planned, and I didn’t eat nearly as many pumpkin-flavored goods as I wanted to. October was a bust and I want a do-over. Fortunately we still have…

TWD: Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies Go Whoopie

whoopie-pies-4

Before we get into any fights and things get awkward around here, let me preface this by saying: there is nothing wrong with a cake cookie per se. Sometimes you might be craving a fluffy, soft dessert, and instead of hassling with cupcake pans and liners, you go with a cakey cookie instead. I get…
