Milk Chocolate and Coconut Blondies

Milk Chocolate and Coconut Blondies

I bake brownies more often than I bake blondies, because the fudgy chocolate bars are always a crowd pleaser and they simply come to mind a bit more often than their non-chocolate counterparts. Blondies are such a versatile type of bar cookie, however, because you can work any ingredients you want into them – chocolate or not. They’re also much quicker to bake than individual ...

Summer Nectarine Cake

Summer Nectarine Cake

I love to use fresh fruit in cobblers and crisps during the summer because they’re so easy to make and are also a great way to showcase in-season fruit. There are other desserts that showcase fresh fruit just as well, though, and this cake is one of them. This Summer Nectarine Cake is packed with ripe summer nectarines and delivers at least as much fruit ... Read More »

Summer Grilled Peach Sundaes

Grilled Peach Sundaes

One of my favorite things about summertime is the wide variety of fresh produce available at both my local grocery stores and my local farmers markets. From tomatoes and corn to strawberries and melons, it seems that everything is at their flavor peak when the weather is hot. I find that fruit is absolutely irresistible in the summer and always bring home a few baskets ... Read More »

Raspberry Cornmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Raspberry Cornmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fresh berries aren’t great ingredients to use when baking a batch of cookies, even when it seems like those flavors would be perfect in a batch of classic chocolate chip dough. This is because fresh fruit adds a lot of moisture to cookie dough and you can end up wit a cookie that is a little more soggy than chewy. This is especially a problem ... Read More »
