Who likes lemon cookies that are sweet without any sour kick? That’s right. None of us! There are few things in life as disappointing as buying lemon cookies or getting a slice of lemon cake from the bakery or a store and it lacks any tangy punch. It totally misses the mark for me. When I think of lemon, I want it give me that lip-puckering sensation, a tang you can feel, and these Tart Soft-Baked Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies do exactly that!Read More
I am thrilled to be sharing this easy Chubby Hubby ice cream recipe (no-churn, egg free). Chubby Hubby and I go way back. I mean waaaay back, like the 90’s. This was my absolute favorite childhood ice cream. I would eat it by the pint in one sitting – not even joking. My family was more into Cherry’s Garcia, always a classic, but Chubby Hubby was more my thing. Chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels, chocolate and peanut butter swirled among malted vanilla ice cream. Chubby Hubby was literally designed for me.
I say “was” because as of ~2008, I stopped being able to find it in stores. Especially in Atlanta, it is nowhere to be found. If you use the store locator tool on the website it shows that it’s carried at Walgreens all across the city. Oh the lies they tell me!!!! This ice cream is not sold anywhere in Atlanta (trust me, I have literally gone 40 miles out of my way to check) and I assume this must be true for other places as well. So, like I do in these situations, I create a copycat version because I must be reunited with my first love! Rest assured, as a connoisseur of this ice cream flavor, I’ve made this recipe taste identical to the real thing. You will not be disappointed.
No worries if you don’t own an ice cream machine because you won’t need any fancy gadgets for this recipe. Just a hand mixer or stand mixer to whip up some heavy cream then a few hours in the freezer. In no time you too will have your very own Chubby Hubby to enjoy by the trough-full! Read More
Sometimes you come across a recipe that I like to call a “back pocket recipe”. The recipe that every crowd loves, a recipe people always ask you for or request you re-make it at the next immediate function. And that’s a recipe you can turn to time and time again and know people will go crazy for. That’s what these Triple Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes are. Sort of my claim-to-fame in the cupcake world.Read More
Chocolate chip recipes are a dime a dozen. You get inundated with options online and in cookbooks and since there are several variations, it’s hard to know which one will be the best cookie for you. Looking for a simpler way to still have a perfectly delicious cookie while avoiding having to brown my butter first, I made some alterations to my go-to recipe and created what, to me, is the absolute perfect and EASY chocolate chip cookie. Is this Ultimate Chewy Chocolate Chip cookie for you? Lets see. These cookies are…
Extremely chewy and super thick!
Large bakery-style sized cookies
Perfectly gooey, slightly under-baked centers.
Soft and tender, even better the next day
Super buttery with flecks of finishing salt
Variety of chocolate chunks and chips with varying richness.
No refrigeration needed. You can pull the recipe together in 10 minutes. Freezing the cookie balls before baking is recommended but not at all necessary.
For all my chocolate lovers and fans of soft and chewy cookies, this one’s for you! These Soft-Batch Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are lusciously chocolatey and have the fresh kick of peppermint that kicks up the festive holiday vibes and enhances the flavor of these cookies. As if chocolate chunk stuffed chocolate cookies aren’t enough, these are also partially dipped into a tempered white chocolate shell that hardens as it sets, so it makes stacking and shipping these cookies a breeze. I have many fun updates in this post! Click here to read more 😊 Read More
Today on my blog we are making scones using Sticky Fingers Bakeries scone mix. They have a variety of scone mixes on their site that ranges from savory to sweet. I got a variety pack gifted to me from Sticky Fingers Bakeries as this is a sponsored post. Then sent lots of fun flavors like Cheddar & Chive, Apple Fritter Scone-Nuts, and Hot Cross Buns (which I’m extremely excited to try because I’ve dreamt about those most of my life after hearing the song as a child :))
I’ve been under the weather the past few days and between that, and my house renovation – which has given me tons of problems lately – I haven’t had the energy to bake for the last week. These scone mixes couldn’t have come at a better time! We are living with family during this renovation and they get very used to my weekly (er, sometimes daily) homemade sweets in the house. They start asking questions when I’ve gone a week without providing them with their daily supply LOL. Read More
I love baking from scratch, but there are always moments in our lives when we don’t have the time, or all the ingredients needed and we are in search of a quick and easy solution. Well today, I have a solution for you. Did you know you can make cookies from a box of cake mix? Yup. Years ago, the Duncan Hines chocolate cake box gave instructions on how to turn the chocolate cake into fudgy crinkle cookies instead. Mind, blown. Although they removed that recipe from the box (it now features ingredient substitutions like using Greek yogurt, etc.) I figured I could apply a similar formula to their other cake mixes and get creative on flavors, like these Pumpkin White Chocolate Boxed Cake Cookies.
I am excited to share an easy recipe today for these Biscuit Dough Donuts with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Glaze! It’s not often that I make something for my blog that is simple, mainly because I have big ideas and love food so much that I don’t mind spending hours in the kitchen just for one delicious meal. But I know that’s not relatable to all my readers because we aren’t always in the mood to cook nor do we always have the time.
So today, I have a shortcut recipe that uses a fun and easy hack to make one of my favorite “cheat” foods – donuts! You may have made these before but this may also be new to some of you. Today, we are making biscuit dough donuts. Yup, canned Pillsbury buttermilk biscuit dough, fried for a few minutes, and frosted with delicious homemade glazes. As you may suspect, the frostings I decided to go with are peanut butter and chocolate! Read More
The Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew beats out the Pumpkin Spice Latte all day long. I’m thrilled that Starbucks created a fall drink that caters to those of us that adore cold drinks all year ’round. Sure, we could make the PSL into an iced latte, but it never tastes as “fall” to me as the hot version. But this Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew nails it and this is the drink I wait all year for. When I found these Starbucks Cold Brew concentrate pods yesterday, I knew that I just had to create a recipe for my favorite drink so we can enjoy it after it leaves the menu at Starbucks!
My love for maple donuts is real! I absolutely adore classic maple bars and pretty much all donuts for that matter. There is something about that buttery, brown sugary, maple frosting that is unmatched. And if you too, adore mixing sweet and salty flavors, these Pecan Maple Bacon Fritter Bites are for you. I firmly believe that bacon belongs in my baked goods (especially when you can pull them together in under 30 minutes). Are ya with me?
