Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is The Best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. I have made dozens of choc chip recipes with all sorts of variations but this is the hands down winner! Even since I’ve found this recipe, I have still ventured off to try various combos of double chocolate, oatmeal etc. but none are better than this. Oven at 350 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large egg, at room temperature 2 tsp vanilla extract 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2...

Caramal Pear Butter

Wow – you know what this would be good on, everything – these are the exact words my husband spoke after trying this concoction. It all started when our next door neighbor left a large bag of pears (straight from her backyard) on our front step. We ate a few, but there were so many and fruit flies were gathering fast so I put the entire bag in the fridge. When the space was needed, I decided to make sweet pear butter. I’ve made apple sauce many times and this is much the same process. I begin...

Chocolate Quinoa Cake

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Sweet tooth = every tooth | 0 comments

I titled it cake because I think it would make a nice cake, but I made up cupcakes since they are so easy to grab and go. AND, my silicon muffin liners are very easy to use with no greasing required – ever!  I whipped this up after 9pm because I hadn’t baked anything yet today and I had extra quinoa I’d been thinking about since dinner. With a baby in bed and a hubby out at a meeting, I could not sit still. I LOVE chocolate everything and knew I could use my quinoa in a fast and satisfying...

Caramel Popcorn

I was inspired to make this because… Last week I brought home the Chicago Mix popcorn (sweet and salty) from Costco but told my husband he could not open it until company comes (really, it is a very big bag)! So, I thought I’d make some for us Tonight!!  I had two bags of popcorn nearing their expiry date. If I had more popcorn, I probably would have doubled the recipe. This popcorn is very easy to eat! Here is what you need: 2 bags of popped popcorn 1/2 cup butter 1 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup corn...

sweet layer bar – copy cat

Today I had lunch with my mom and baby Lou at one of my favorite spots. I had an interesting and very delicious Dill Pickle soup. Before heading out, I got a dessert bar they called a Holly Bar. It was fresh out of the oven, looked awesome and tasted great. However, at $4.25 for a square, I thought I should be making this myself! I must say, that my bar was even better. Are you craving chocolate with a crunch and toffee flavor? Try this! I should warn that I whipped this up free hand – no measuring, however...

blondies

Turns out, I LOVE blondies. After I made them for the first time recenlty, I wondered – why haven’t I made these before. the answer came really quickly. It is because they are not chocolate. Instead, I normally make brownie. However, after I made these chewy, sweet and delicious treats (which chocolate and pecans), I quickly added them to my regular rotation. It’s a snowy winter and I’m on maternity leave. I never thought it would happen, but I’ve stated watching some day time TV...
