Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

6 Comments

I’ve made a new friend and become addicted to Chai Hot Chocolate. At my new part-time job I have become pretty good friends with my cubicle mate, Ms. T. It is a handy thing since we sit right next to one another two and a half days a week. She is a creative person who […]

Cranberry Oat Spice Cake with Coconut, Chocolate, and Pecans

I try to keep a well stocked pantry. I never want to be without ingredients like vanilla, spices, chocolate chips, oats, dry fruit, and many other items I deem essential to my happiness. My well stocked, and organized, pantry has made many a recipe on this site possible. Let’s face it, I am a lazy […]

May and June are all about travel. My first bit or travel has come and gone. I spent a weekend in the mountains of California eating, drinking, learning, and making friends at Camp Blogaway! It was my first year to attend, and I had the distinct honor of speaking on the subject of Beating Blogger […]

Happy Leap Day! February has been one bitch of a month for me personally, so to celebrate the end of it I decided to bake something really, really naughty.  I was inspired by monkey bread, a heavenly concoction of cinnamon sugar covered dough that is baked in a sticky brown sugar and butter sauce.  The […]

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 […]

Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

These cupcakes were born of necessity. Originally this batch of cupcakes was intended to be a full fledged cake, but due to my rather appalling laziness the pans I had intended to use were dirty when the urge to bake struck.  When I say dirty I mean stuck on, needing a good soak, burnt on […]

I have a love affair with little pie shaped cookies. This time it is cookies that are in fact tiny pecan pies!  I adore them, with their little nubbly tops and their gooey centers.  These are lovely for dessert with a cup of coffee, make a lovely gift wrapped in a pretty bag, or are […]

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]
