Triple Chocolate Biscotti

Last week I was craving chocolate in a major way. So much so, that I churned up some chocolate coconut milk ice cream after dinner and ate it standing in the kitchen. Since I can’t ever have enough chocolate in my life, I figured I’d triple-chocolate it up biscotti-style. The moral of the story is this: these are a brownie that you can dunk in your coffee. And goodness knows, there is nothing wrong with…

Pumpkin Mini Donuts + Brown Butter Glaze, Pecans, and Caramel

It’s always donut weather to me, but at the moment it’s REALLY donut weather. It’s time to go to the cider mill and get a half dozen donuts for yourself. It’s time to chug cider until your tum is an ocean. It’s time to wander on nature trails to nowhere. It’s time to put salted caramel on and in everything. It’s donut o’clock. Can you believe this recipe makes either 6 big donuts or like…

Sweet & Salty Sugar Cookies

I don’t know, you guys. It’s been one of those weekends. The kind where you buy ingredients for your dream pizza and then eat cereal for dinner. The kind where you go to Trader Joe’s in pajamas and buy milk and dog treats. (So what!) I just need to remind myself that worrying about the future doesn’t help a darn thing. It’s just “borrowing trouble”, and I’ve got to quit it. While I totally need…

Large Marge Double Chocolate Cookies

While baking these I might’ve been looking up 90’s Mariah Carey to blare. Sometimes you just need to sing along to Fantasy or Always Be My Baby while baking cookies, ya know? I hope you like these so much you get mad at them. I hope you have good intentions (like I did) to just half a cookie at a time… and save the rest for the next day, but instead eat it out of…

Forest Honey Shortbread Fries

These are the french fries of the tea partying world. The edges are crisp while the center is chewy version of shortbread I had no idea existed!┬áMaybe I under-baked them a smidgen, and maybe I’m so glad I did! These are dreamy with forest honey, sea salt, and jam. Pretty much three of my faves. So, I think you should totally make these little fellas for your next lady party. Use your most favorite honey.…

Soft Pretzels

Sometimes you just need a solid snack. The kind you eat for your willy nilly dinner. The kind you eat before cookie-dessert. The kind you eat while sitting on the floor in front of your coffee table. These are perfect for eating while watching movies with your lady friends. I guess they’d be good for football watching dudes, but I’m rarely around sporty, high-fiving fellas. But these turned out totally snack worthy. I even made…

Pumpkin Pup Treats

Elliot needed some pumpkin-love in his life this fall. And rumor has it pumpkin is good for dog bellies. It settles their stomaches. Pumpkins are so thoughtful like that. When I give one of these to Elliot he chomps away and then checks the floor really well to not waste a single crumb. So he really likes them, and I bet your pup would too! Now he spends a lot of time laying on the…

Large Marge Chocolate Chunk Cookies + Sea Salt

I’ve been following my breakfast with a cookie these days. It’s because I go to bed thinking about these. They’ve changed my life! These cookies are large and in charge. And since they’re bigger, they stay nice and chewy in the center. And that salt! Don’t even get me started. Augustus Gloop would love these, since there’s over a pound of chocolate in them. And if he’d like something, it’s got to be good. He…

Olive Oil Mini Muffins with Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt

I hope summer’s treating you well. I hope you’ve been driving around with your windows down listening to summer music. Have you been listening to She & Him and singing along to the Avett Brothers? Blaring Lady Gaga for the dance-y days? I hope your car never gets too hot and that your parking spot’s always in the shade. I hope you eat things like this for breakfast because they’re called muffins even though they…
