Maple Bacon Magic Bars

Maple Bacon Magic Bars

Magic bars are an easy-to-make bar cookie recipe that use some of my favorite main ingredients: chocolate, nuts and coconut. They’re also very easy to adapt if you want to play around with those base flavors, because the ingredients for the bars are essentially just layered together in a pan and baked. These Maple Bacon Magic Bars are a salty-sweet version of the classic Magic ... Read More »

Banana Split Brownies

Banana Split Brownies

Banana splits are ice cream sundaes built on a banana boat, made up of a ripe banana that is split straight down the center. Typically, three scoops of ice creams are piled on top, followed by a variety of sauces, whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles and cherries. They’re a bit of a retro dessert these days, since many modern ice cream shops build their sundaes to ... Read More »

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

Coffee and Kahlua Brownie Bites

A bottle of Kahlua or Homemade Vanilla Coffee Liqueur is a great thing to have around the kitchen. This is partly because you can use it to make yourself a tasty cocktail, but it is also because it provides a wonderful way to infuse coffee flavor into baked goods like cakes and brownies. 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 »
