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

This Year’s Secret Cupid

SOMEhow I managed to pick the name of the healthiest girl in the office. Snort. Like healthy as in sustains on veggies and Laughing Cow, does regular “juice cleanses” and can keep a big bowl of M&M’s on her desk without burying her head in them. So, my approach this year was slightly different and … Continue reading

TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

I’ve gone on a baking frenzy. Typing this post right now, these cookies don’t come up as our weekly recipe for another two weeks! But, I got in the mood and basically baked for a whole weekend. Actually, truth be told, two whole weekends. More fruits of my labor to be posted soon. 🙂 I … Continue reading

TWD: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Espresso. Chocolate. Shortbread Cookies. What’s not to love, right? By the time this is posted, I will be in the early days of a lovely couple weeks in Spain. But I could not resist this recipe because, well, how can you resist ANY of those things much less ALL of them in combination?? Like Dorie’s … Continue reading

TWD: Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

Only two words to sum up this week’s TWD experience. Stomach Bug. Man, my roommate is lucky…this stuff looks sooooooo good and creamy and delish. Perhaps it’ll stay for a few days and I can try it. Given, of course, that it isn’t devoured by then. Sigh. Check out Katrina’s blog for the recipe and … 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: Dressy Chocolate Loaf Cake

My first thought as I began to make this week’s TWD recipe was, “Thank heavens for air conditioning!” The DC area has had a string of 90+ degree days with humidity off the charts – weather in my book that does not necessarily scream for baking, much less baking something rich and chocolate. But, like … 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
