Chocolate Chip Coconut ‘Awesome’ Bars

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

21 Comments

I was kind of half joking on Twitter when I said that I would call these ‘Awesome Bars’. It turns out they are really quite awesome so I felt no qualms about adding it to the title.  So, what are ‘Awesome Bars,’ you might ask?.  Well, they are a dense, buttery cake bottom with a […]

Sweet Potato Pecan Coconut Cake

I love single layer cakes. They have a rustic appeal that I find immensely comforting.   Most single layer cakes are charmingly homemade in appearance, requiring no special skills to decorate them.  No torting layers, no stacking, no praying you avoid the  dreaded buttercream belly around the side of the cake.  If you decorate cakes […]

Pumpkin Banana Cranberry Chocolate Chip Blondies

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. This year I have been thinking about pumpkin desserts that are not your standard pie or bread.  Don’t get me wrong, those desserts are all wonderful and I will be having at least one of them on our holiday table, but this year I wanted to shake things up.  I am […]

Valentine’s Day is coming. We do not really celebrate Valentine’s Day here at Casa Shenanigans.  No heart shaped boxes of candy, no bunches of wilted grocery store roses, and no adult-sized footie pajamas in the mail.  No, we do not celebrate with silly tokens.  We celebrate with food.  Sometimes we go out, but more often […]

Pecan Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Oh baby, it is COLD outside! The Dallas area, and most areas in the Mid-west, are enduring what I am unofficially calling ‘Ice-pocalypse 2011′. Around the Evil Shenanigans homestead the temperatures hovering around 15 F, while ice and gusty winds have made travel and work nearly impossible.  When I get cooped up indoors during this […]

Butter Drop Cookies

I always want to look like I put in the extra effort, even when time is tight. Festive decorated cookies are all well and good, but sometimes there is absolutely no time to get fancy.  That makes this recipe an absolute treasure because you get bright, festive cookies that taste light, buttery, and delicious.  Of […]

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Let’s just get this out of the way.  I need cookies. Something about a cookie just makes me feel, when the stress of the season threatens to be my undoing, that everything will be ok, nothing is that bad, and I can cope.  My flavor of the moment is chocolate and peanut butter.  It is […]

The holidays have officially arrived, and I’m in the mood for something both naughty and nice! It is also time for another Project Food Blog Challenge.  Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for helping me get this far!  I never imagined I would be participating in Challenge 8, and I am humbled […]

Last year I gave you all a round-up of cookies perfect for the holiday season … and I plan to do the same again this year!  I mean, what is better than contemplating cookies to help you get over your turkey hang-over? Next week I will be posting my entry for Challenge 8 of Project […]

Turkey and Mushroom Soup

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the left-overs. With as much as we cook it’s never a surprise that we can’t eat it all, which is fine by me.  I love a breakfast of cornbread stuffing and turkey before I start putting up my Christmas decorations.  Usually we have so much left over […]
