Brown Butter Chocolate-Caramel Skillet Cookie


Good morning loves. I hope this finds you well, rested and happy. If not, I hope we’re working on it with some tea…maybe morning stretches or binge-watching your favorite shows. It all works. You’ll get there. I want you to think about this: melty ice cream and glossy pools of chocolate encased in a giant, chewy, slightly undercooked chocolate chip skillet…

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies


A lot of different things are happening with these chocolate caramel pretzel cookies. We whip up a simple double chocolate cookie batter. That’s cool. We’ve done this before. We grab a caramel candy (not too hard, not to soft), cut it in half and shove in the middle of the dough, covering completely. We’re also using dark cocoa powder, because I…

Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cookies


These Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cookies bumped some toasted walnut cookies out of the line-up because they were just too amazing not to share immediately. The feedfeed had a mixer this past week and I wanted to bake Julie + Dan (the owners) something special. Wait, let me take a step back…I actually made two different types of chocolate chip cookies last week.…

Salted Rye Brownies


Have we talked about how linear I am? I like to focus on one thing, see it through until completion and then I’m ready for the next project. Currently, I’m working on four different projects andddd…it’s a lot. For me. It’s all great…it’s just an adjustment for my brain. And both of my kids have been sick for what feels…

Salted Dark Chocolate Violet Cookies


You guys, I made us a fancy cookie. I know. It’s exciting. Did you ever eat French violet hard candies when you were a kid? I was obsessed with them. They usually came in beautifully-designed little tins that I coveted. I think I was as much obsessed with the tins as I was with the candy itself. So when thefeedfeed + method ask…

Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


I realized recently that I’ve been woefully neglect of including oatmeal cookies in the DisplacedHousewife family. Chocolate? Yep, plenty of that. But oatmeal? No love. The loss was weighing heavily on our hearts. An emptiness that just couldn’t be filled. We had to rectify the situation. I set out on a journey to make us PERFECT oatmeal raisin cookies. It was a…

Balsamic Strawberry Brownies


I like brownies. No, check that. I love brownies. The only flaw in brownies, as far as I can see, is the fact that we always make them in that annoyingly small 8X8 pyrex dish. At my house that only feeds four of us. I’m just being completely honest with you guys. One way to get more mileage out of the…

Chocolate Marshmallow Sea Salt Cookies


We can never have too many cookies, can we? Have you ever tried to bake with marshmallows? Well, it’s a bitch. Their high-sugar content makes them melt in cookies…and then the cookies get oozy on one side and then it might be perfectly spherical on the other. And then you’re left with a lopsided, unsightly cookie. And we all know how…

Dark Chocolate, Tart Cherry + Sea Salt Cookies


There is literally so much to discuss I don’t even know where to begin. First, my daughter’s team came in third at the junior olympics. I know, crazy right? I didn’t talk about it much before we left because I didn’t want to put any pressure on her + be that annoying parent to you guys (I get it). But,…
