Fudgy Nutella Swirl Brownies

Nutella Swirl Brownies

What could be better than a fudgy chocolate brownie when a chocolate-craving strikes? The answer, of course, is a fudgy chocolate brownie that has a generous swirl of Nutella running through it. These Nutella Swirl Brownies are just the ticket for chocoholics – especially if you are a chocoholic that happens to like that addictive chocolate-hazelnut spread. The brownie batter is one of my favorite ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Bars

Meyer Lemon Bars

Unlike some other types of lemons, Meyer lemon trees bear fruit year round. This means that you can find them at many grocery stores and farmers markets even when other citrus fruit aren’t strictly in season. It also means that my Meyer lemon tree both has flowers and full grown fruit on it at the same time just about all the time – and I ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Honey Bar Cookies

Peanut Butter and Honey Bars

Peanut butter and honey are a wonderful combination. I like honey drizzled over hot toast that is spread with peanut butter, honey that is mixed with peanut butter to create a salty-sweet dip for apples and the combination of honey and peanut butter in frozen pops. They also work well together in baked goods like these Peanut Butter and Honey Bars. The bars are easy ... Read More »

Layered Coconut and Lime Bars

Coconut Lime Bars

I’ve had quite a few different coconut and lime bars. In fact, I never turn down a chance to try one because I’m such a fan of this flavor combination. These Layered Coconut and Lime Bars are a little outside of the box when compared to many other bars that are made using the same flavors because they have a meringue-like layer of coconut on ...

Coffee and Kahlua Brownie Bites

A bottle of Kahlua or Homemade Vanilla Coffee Liqueur is a great thing to have around the kitchen.

Liqueurs are spirits that are sweetened and flavored, and like vanilla extract, ... Read More »

Lime Bars

Lime Bars with Confectioners' Sugar

I bake lemon bars all the time, both because I love them and because my friends and family love them. Lemons are probably the first fruit that you think of when you think of this type of shortbread + custard bar, but they’re not the only citrus fruit that can be used to make this type of dessert. Limes, for instance, are a great option ... Read More »

Coconut Oil Brownies

Coconut Oil Brownies

Coconut oil has become more popular for baking in the past year or so. Not only is it a relatively healthy fat, but it is more widely available than ever before, so it is a readily accessible ingredient. It’s easy to work with, since it can be used both as a solid and a liquid, and it can be substituted for either butter or oil. ... Read More »

Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Blondies

Halloween Snickerdoodle Blondies

I strongly associate flavors like cinnamon, ginger and cloves with the fall because they are the main ingredients in pumpkin pie spice, which features in a lot of my recipes around this time of year. And I’m not the only one who uses those flavors more in the fall than other times of the year. Starbucks makes a Pumpkin Spice Latte and Mars even makes ... Read More »
