Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My pantry is filled with cans of pumpkin. They were less than half price at the grocery store last week, and I don’t think non-pumpkin-lovers realize how difficult it is to find in the off-season. So I grabbed a few (massive) cans, and am determined to try as many pumpkin recipes as possible. The cookies [...]

Fig Frozen Yogurt

I’m pretty sure this is the best time of year for fruit. Summer’s berries, melons, and stone fruits don’t seem to be letting up, but we’re also starting to get local apples, pears, and grapes. Oh, and figs! For the longest time I had only ever eaten dried figs, but the first time I tasted [...]


No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

The last-minute dessert is not something I usually enjoy preparing. I’m a planner; I like having time to read some recipes, drool over some pictures, and stock my pantry with all the right ingredients before diving in.

Every year about this time I start dreaming of frozen yogurt, [...]

Baking For Babies: Very Berry Oatmeal Cookies

Crazy kid!), I didn’t want these samples to go to waste. I’ve heard only good things about the importance of [...]


A Cake for All Seasons

Every year on my birthday growing up, I requested a Duncan Hines fudge cake with fudge frosting. Now that I’m the resident cake-baker, I love to try new recipes. I’m constantly [...]


Brown Butter Toffee Blondies

Summer means barbecues, potlucks and parties. And accompanying invitations to all of these is usually a request to bring along a dish; in my case, it’s always dessert. But there are two little problems with the outdoor dinners of summer: transportation and no refrigeration. I can’t bring along a cake, because the frosting will slide [...]
