Everything Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Cookie Book!


Prepare to be dazzled. I was so excited when the publisher said I could share a recipe from The Cookie Book, I knew this was the one. I wanted something that would be pretty easy for you to throw together–because you must make these everything chocolate chip cookies immediately. I’m talking tonight. They’re addictive…and if we’re being completely honest here,…

Banana Espresso Cake With Espresso Bean Buttercream


I hope this banana espresso cake finds you rested and well, ready to tackle the weekend. I have been dreaming about this cake for some time…a super moist cake, loaded with heaps of banana, dotted with bits of dark chocolate and teeming with the taste of espresso throughout. We bake this cake low and slow. I’m talking, at 275 F…

Chocolate Rye Cherry Cookies


No mistaken I love a chocolate cookie. I’d been dreaming about this rye number for quite awhile and needed the excuse of meeting friends (Adam + Ryan and Christine) for a picnic on the beach in Santa Monica. I only name-dropped because I’m going to bring them up again shortly. Hang tight. I was hesitant at first to even post…

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 Malted Layer Cake With Toasted Meringue


So I’ve learned something very important this week. Grab a drink, move in close and listen carefully: I have zero self control with chocolate cake. Every year, growing up, my mom would make me a chocolate cake for my birthday. You know the cake…those amazing doctored-up box cakes that are the confectionary equivalent to crack. One year in particular, my best…

Cranberry Bark Cookies


I like to keep things light and fluffy around here, but I’m not feeling especially so this week. BUT, instead of waxing on about everything you’ve already heard or read, I’ll refrain and just say, let’s spread a little love. A little peace. A little laughter. These cranberry bark cookies will put a smile on anyone’s face. Pour yourself some…

Spiced Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies


This one’s gonna be a quickie. This pumpkin chocolate chunk cookie is the result of too much time on Pinterest. It happens to the best of us. The entire landscape over there is all apples and pears and toffee and caramel and pumpkin in more forms than you can possible imagine. Pumpkin fritters, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes, donuts, waffles…you name…

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,…

Brown Butter Muscovado Chocolate Chip Cookies


Let me first address the elephant in the room. Yep, the one over in the corner. Let’s call her Anita. If you look at these photos, it would appear there are three different cookies happening. Do you notice the different color variations? Well, in fact, it’s the same cookie, different sugar. This was initially going to be a Brown Butter…

Chocolate Rye Stout Cake With Marshmallow Meringue


I mean…I’m not sure what else to say, but look at this stout cake. This is a beautifully damp cake. The rye-stout combo, while bold in its own right, hangs back and lets the chocolate notes take center stage. This combo does double-duty by also keeping overt sweetness at bay. The birth of this cake started with dreams of cream cheese frosting…which is pretty standard issue for a…
