TWD: Honey Nut Brownies

I have always had a thing about cakey cookies…and by “thing” I mean I don’t like ‘em,  I like cookies that are crispy and chewy. I guess I also have a thing with brownies too. I like the crackly top, somewhat dense, maybe fudgy and gooey kind of brownie. So, without seeing a picture of … Continue reading

TWD: Peanuttiest Blondies

Woops! Took off for the weekend to Austin for a most insane Halloween…and just squeaking these in at the last minute! Considering I am not a peanut butter person, they do smell pretty good and I am absolutely sure they will disappear tomorrow. I did have to make a switch – for some completely odd … Continue reading

Cinna-Butter Nut Chewies

It was a typical Fridaynight…nothing too exciting going on, I was tired from the week, and all I really wanted to do was have a glass of wine and catch up on my DVR’d shows from the week. Oh, and bake. :-) I stockpile recipes and file favorites online like CRAZY. There are clearly more … Continue reading

TWD: Brrrr-ownies

When I read this recipe, it sort of screamed winter/Christmas time to me – I always associate chocolate minty things with that time of year. So instead I swapped out chopped up Almond Joy bars, which sort of warrants a name change, seeing as the “brrrr” was no longer a part of the finished product. … Continue reading

TWD: Chockablock Cookies

This weekend I had the pleasure of having my mom in town for a visit. We had a marvelous time – did dinner and a show Friday night (for anyone in the DC area, I would highly recommend Little Shop of Horrors), and tooled around for much of the day on Saturday doing the Georgetown … Continue reading

Lime Bars

Saturday night we decided to have some folks over – a fabulous, well blended group to come over for munchies, mussels and some good wine. Obviously, dessert was in order too, and somehow (maybe the lovely spring weather?) I honed in on making something maybe lime-y or coconut-y. I did my normal foodgawker search and … Continue reading

TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars

Wow, I feel like I haven’t posted in forever! I’ve been on sort of  a forced hiatus from baking as I was out of town for ten days (Vail and then Tucson), came home and a week later was off to an amazing wedding in New Orleans. What a fabulous few weeks! But alas I am home … Continue reading

I Would Call These “Spicy Ginger Bars”

It is that time of year when I start pouring through my recipe files and everyone’s beautiful blogs to find inspiration for my annual holiday cookie baking. The problem is that there are just too many fabulous options and not nearly enough time to test them ALL (that and not nearly enough room in my pants … Continue reading

Cinnamon Chocolate Graham Bars (and cookies!)

I’ve been toying for a while with the idea of taking the base of this recipe and morphing it into something else. And then I received my order of a bucket of goodies from King Arthur Flour and decided that there was no better time than the present to try something new! I considered perhaps … Continue reading
