Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts

Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts

I’ve always felt that you can’t go wrong with an Alice Medrich cookbook because her recipes are consistently good and always seem to offer a good variety to choose from when you’re in the mood to do a little baking but don’t know exactly what you want to bake. These same things are true about her newest book, Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts, only these recipes ... Read More »

Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies

Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy

The name alone of Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-in-Your-Mouth is enough to make you crave a freshly baked, homemade cookie. Flavor is always important to a cookie, but when Alice Medrich decided to organize her newest cookie book by texture it was a stroke of brilliance because the texture of a freshly baked cookie is exactly what keeps us all in the kitchen baking.

I won’t go on about how much I love this cookbook (again), but I will say that this is an excellent cake and all the better because it’s actually quite ... Read More »

Cocoa Fudge Cookies

I found this recipe in an older issue of Cooking Light magazine that I happened to be flipping through. Apparently there is a good reason to save all those old issues, because this recipe makes delicious cookies. I know it’s listed on their website and has been included in their Christmas Cookie recipe collection at least once, too, so a subscription isn’t crucial to getting ... Read More »

Perfect Fudgy Brownies

Too cakey, too dry, too dense, too wet, too greasy, too many nuts, not enough nuts. What is the perfect brownie? I sincerely thing that everyone has a different mindset when it comes to brownies. Some people like them to be like a moist, dense, chocolate cake, while others prefer them to be a sort of lightened fudge. There are some who won’t eat them ... Read More »
