Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Rugelach

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas (Hanukkah, etc.) with their families and friends this year. I know I did. I feel that I am a bit late with these rugelach because they are a┬átraditionally Jewish cookie and very popular during Hanukkah, especially at parties. This doesn’t preclude them from being eaten the rest of the year, of course, but I must say that ... Read More »

Chewy, Chunky Blondies

I know that I just recently made something from Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours, but as I flipped through the book I bookmarked over a dozen recipes that I wanted to try, so here is another one. This recipe appealed to me both because I like blondies and because there is so much good stuff packed into these. A blondie ... Read More »

Ultimate Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

If you have ever even considered applying the word “chocoholic” to yourself, you simply must make these cookies. They are the ultimate in chocolate sandwich cookie-ness. They start with fairly thin chocolate cookies that come out of the oven slightly crisp at the edges, due to their thickness (or lack thereof), and have a chewy, chocolaty center. The cookies are rather like thin brownies and ... Read More »

Cinnamon Chocolate Squares

I was asked by Sara, from i like to cook, if I would be interested in trying a couple of recipes from Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours, I immediately said yes. My general feeling is that no matter how many recipes or cookbooks I have (a lot is an understatement), I can always have more. Besides, new cookbooks mean new ... Read More »

One-Bowl Buttermilk Chocolate Cupcakes

Occasionally, you’ll see a blogger write in that “real” life – in some form – got in the way of blogging and interrupted their flow. I have to say that I, too, recently had that very same conflict and. as a result, my posting schedule was interrupted. I had a busy couple of weeks and, to cap it all off, it was my birthday. I ...

Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you have ever stayed at a Doubletree Hotel, you will probably remember only one thing about your visit: they give guests warm chocolate chip cookies at check in, and pretty much any time you feel like wandering down to the main desk to get one. And the cookies are fantastic: warm, chewy, packed with chocolate chips and nuts (yes, even I liked the nuts ... Read More »

Almond Chocolate Chip Bars

I wanted to try this recipe for a very long time. Land O’ Lakes (yes, the butter company) has a great recipe section on their website and I frequently browse through it when I don’t have anything in particular in mind to make. Their pictures are tempting and since this is the very first entry in their Bars and Brownies section, it stared up at ... Read More »

German Chocolate Cake

I hesitated about running the same picture twice in a row, but I promised to deliver the recipe, so there’s not much I can do about it. Besides, at the risk of sounding terribly immodest, I really like this picture. As many of you guessed, this is indeed a German Chocolate Cake. Despite the name, the cake is thoroughly American and was invented in Texas, ... Read More »
