Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall is probably my favorite season, and I’m sure some of you guys can agree with me! Obviously, one of the most popular flavors of this time of year is pumpkin.

The very best chocolate cookie recipe ever - and it's kid-friendly, so you can even make it with your toddler or young child!

Tried and True Baking: The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last weekend, the New York Times front page featured a gem of a recipe that has changed my baking life. I’m only half kidding!

Banana pudding with Nilla wafers has always been one of those guilty pleasure treats for me, similar to a cereal bowl of Oreos drenched in milk and eaten with a spoon (no judgment). The problem with each of those desserts is that they are made with off […]
