Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

You guys!  Hey!!! Happy 2017!  I know, I know…things got kind of hairy at the end there.  But we’re still here, and there are still recipes that need baking.  And now my watch begins… We moved!  I finally have a ktichen that isn’t basically a submarine galley, and I am so…SO excited.  To have enough…

Sea Salt Blondies

YES.  The holidays are upon us, and that means 0 consideration for anything remotely healthy on weekends.  Weekdays are all “run this, salad that”, but tonight’s bake was sponsored by butter and sugar.  In…abundance.  I’ve been on a sea salt kick, much like every other human on Earth, and there was nary a semi-sweet chip…

Key Lime Pie

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  Or, if you’re reading this from a foreign country, happy Thursday!  For all of the baking I’ve done in my life, my knowledge of pies is fairly minimal – that’s more my brother’s wheelhouse, shout out to Keith who made a crazy butterscotch caramel meringue monstrosity this year – and I tend…

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Good news everyone!  I had time to bake!  Unfortunately for me (and you guys), life just continuously gets in the way of me making stuff and it makes me so bummed out.  I went from baking on an almost weekly basis to having to go months in between new recipes, and it break my lil…

Gluten-Free Nutella Cupcakes

Oh my goodness friendos.  I am so sincerely sorry that I haven’t updated the blorg in 2 whole months.  Life just has this pesky habit of getting in the way of fun, and it made my heart sad to be baking without the time to update recipes.  To quote Septa Unella, “Shame”.  So it is…

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Summer is upon us, blogosphere, and for poor ol’ South Florida me that means the time of 600% humidity and 24 hour rainstorms is nigh.  Sadly, it is the price I must pay for living somewhere that is a literal paradise when the rest of the country is suffering through blizzards and subzero temperatures, so…

Goat Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello there friendos!  I am back from my post-wedding life getting back together-ing, ready to celebrate National Chocolate Chip day which…apparently is a thing?  I have a lot of idea rolling around in this noggin of mine and I’m so excited to get back into baking regularly now that I don’t have wedding stuff to…

Polish Babka

Wesołego Alleluja, errbody!  Easter is upon us, and that means TREATS.  Now, you may not be able to tell (mainly because my enormous dome is never in pictures on the blog) but I am rather Polish.  To the point where hats don’t fit, and my brother suffers the same fate.  The Polish-American struggle is very,…

Pink Velvet Cupcakes

Hi! Hello! I’m so sorry I’ve been gone!  It turns out that working full time while planning a wedding and trying to run a blog is very hard!  But I’m back, and I promise today I’m going to make my absence up to you beautiful sugar fiends. Behold! The pink velvet cupcake.  It’s insanely easy…

Double Chocolate Brownies

As Fiancébot told me when I mentioned I would make brownies today, “either you like fudgy brownies, or you’re wrong”.  If you are not a fan of chocolate, a.) I’m sorry for whatever happened to make you feel that way and b.) this recipe is not for you.  These double chocolate, next level brownies are…

Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

FULL DISCLOSURE:  This post will contain a lot of Jurassic Park references. Over the weekend, I experienced the crazy happy madness that is a bridal shower – specifically, my bridal shower!  It was established by mmmm pretty much everyone prior to the party that a great gift idea would be baking and kitchen gadgets.  They…

Lemon Shortbread Cookies with Lemon Lavender Glaze

It is with absolutely no hyperbole that I say this recipe is one of the best things I’ve ever made that wasn’t a cupcake.  I got some culinary lavender in my Christmas stocking and realized I had no idea what to do with it.  After some cursory Googling to find out what flavors go well…
