Chocolate Chip Brownie Swirled Cookies (Brookies!)

Well hello there! Remember me? I’ve been gone a while this time, I know. Still haven’t managed to hit the perfect balance with time management, and as usually happens, blog land quiets down quite a bit when I feel the overwhelm coming on. Throw trying to launch a new business into the usual mix of a busy life, and free time becomes a thing of the past. I attended an awesome conference last week with 1,000 Boston Business Women, and one of the major takeaways for me was you can’t really have it all. Sure, you can have most of it, but trying to have everything only leaves you stressed, overwhelmed, and sleep deprived. (more…)


Peanut Butter, Reese’s Cup, and S’Mores Loaded Brownies

As a dessert lover, I don’t discriminate. I love virtually all desserts, but I definitely have my favorites. A crispy-on-the-edges-chewy-on-the-inside chocolate chip cookie is one of them, and fudgy brownies are another. These fudgy brownies get an extra special treatment, because not only is the brownie base delicious and decadent, but it’s loaded with some pretty outrageous fillings, too. (more…)


Chocolate Orange Challah Bread Pudding

You know what’s totally out of this world incredible? Bread pudding. You know what’s one of the best flavor combinations you could ever imagine? Chocolate and orange. You know what my favorite type of bread of all time is? Challah. Put them together and what’s the result? The best dessert in the whole wide world. (more…)


Sour Cream Chocolate Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Ganache

If I could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life, this just might be it. Unbelievable right? Or maybe I just sound crazy. But that’s probably because I am… crazy about this darn cake! And probably crazy in other ways, but best not to get into that right now 🙂 It’s like a dark chocolate cake had a baby with a pound of chocolate fudge than jumped into a pool of creamy white chocolate ganache and lived happily ever after. See? I do sound crazy. (more…)


Peanut Butter Cup Heath Bar Brown Butter Cookies

Here’s the deal: these cookies are out of control. I mean really, peanut butter cups AND heath bar AND brown butter? Outrageous. A few weeks ago, my coworker brought in a leftover bag of heath bars, and I told her I’d make her something delicious if she let me have them. A week later, I presented her with these. (more…)


Cranberry Orange Spice Cake with Citrus Cream Cheese

To be quite honest, I haven’t seen cranberries in the grocery store for a while. Can you even get them in February? Whether you can or not, I know it isn’t exactly cranberry season, so as you might assume, this was a holiday dessert. Still digging out from my backlog of posts… I could make a lot of excuses here about how busy it’s been and how I haven’t had much time to blog (all true), but you’ve heard it all before, so let’s just get to it, shall we? (more…)


Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Blondies

I’ve often expressed my affinity for things in bar form, but there comes a point when it feels like you’ve tried every brownie and blondie recipe out there, and to make things interesting you’ve got to mix it up somehow. Personally, I could never tire of a spectacular chocolate brownie (these are my go-to), but it is fun to try new things and see what you come up with. (more…)
