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.

Spiced Chocolate Biscotti

Mexican Spice Biscotti

I love having biscotti with my coffee. The hard, crunchy cookies are perfect for dipping in a hot cup of coffee or a latte, and they usually come in flavors that are very complimentary to coffee, as well.

Applesauce Brownies

Applesauce Brownies

I bake brownies all the time because they are such a crowd pleaser, but every time that I bake a batch, someone will tell me that they just have to pass on something so rich. Brownies are known for being decadent and delivering a big dose of chocolate in every bite. As much as people love chocolate, it is understandable that you may not want ... Read More »

Dark Chocolate Cream Pie

Dark Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate cream pie is essentially a pudding-like chocolate filling that is spooned into a pre-baked pie shell. The creamy filling is a good contrast for the crispy pastry crust and the filling is relatively easy to make since it doesn’t have to be baked in the oven. There are a lot of chocolate cream pie recipes out there that start with instant pudding. They’re easy ... Read More »

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are delicious just as they are – and that is probably why people don’t tend to stuff as many mix-ins into peanut butter cookie dough as they do with chocolate chip cookie dough. But peanut butter is very versatile and can go with all kinds of other flavors – especially if one of those flavors happens to be chocolate. These Loaded Peanut ... Read More »
