Brownie Batter Oreo Brownies

Brownie Batter Oreo Brownies

I always enjoy trying the seasonal and limited edition cookies that Oreo releases throughout the year. Perhaps it is because I always had a fondness for Oreo cookies and milk after a long day of school, but whatever the motivation, I always get a kick out of trying flavors that range from Caramel Apple to Candy Corn. One of the most recent releases is Brownie ... Read More »

White Chocolate & Apricot Oatmeal Cookie Bars

White Chocolate & Apricot Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Raisins and dried cranberries are two of the most commonly used dried fruits in baked goods, but they’re not the only dried fruit that you might find in your pantry.

Recently, however, chocolate chips have begun to change and you can now buy chips in a variety of flavors and chips made from premium chocolates. One ... Read More »

Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bars

Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Bars

I use a lot of cranberry and orange throughout the holiday season, starting in November and going all the way into the new year. Part of the reason is that fresh cranberries are readily available this time of year, and while you can always rely on frozen, I feel a lot more motivated to use the fresh ones when they’re in my kitchen. The other ... Read More »
