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
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
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.
When you combine a flavor like peanut butter and chocolate with a texture like soft and chewy, you get one of the greatest cookies ever. Not only are these Reese’s Pieces Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies studded with tons of warm, bursting Reese’s Pieces and melting chocolate chips, but they are also filled with an oozing peanut butter center. Drooling yet? Read More

No, of course I didn’t scour the web trying to find a restaurant supply site that sold ice cream parlor shell dip, then spend $16.49 for each 96 ounce canister (x3 flavors) and add rush shipping to the order for instant gratification…
Yes, it’s true. This did just happen. I think it’s time for my intervention.
But can you blame me? Look at these beauties. Who wants to crunch into one of these right now? Read more for the recipe. Read More
I was first introduced to these cookies on an episode of The Barefoot Contessa. Ina brought Kathleen King on her season 2 episode, Baking Basics. Kathleen owns Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton, NY. In this episode, she made one of their well-known cookies, Double Chocolate Almond. Once I tried these cookies, I was hooked but I felt the recipe needed a few modifications to make them more “my style”. Here’s what I changed: Read More
