Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

I get weirdly excited about finding recipes that work on Rich’s diet yet are delicious enough for other people to enjoy. This summer I’ve made countless chocolate chip cookie dough balls, almond flour banana bread, almond flour chocolate chip cookies, and now these truffles. Though the above are all “cleaner” versions of their prototypes,...

Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

I’ve mentioned before that I have a tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s quick and easy to make, freezes well, and is very well received by all audiences. That cookie still has the throne, but this one needs to be remembered. It was a pizza-on-the-beach party, with cocktail sharing and lots of...

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Cinnamon Ice Cream

We started making homemade ice cream during quarantine and now we’re hooked. It’s just so much better. In the past I’d had a few fails and deemed it “too hard” but then I saw the kids making it on Kid’s Baking Championship and I put on my big girl pants and got to work....

Blueberry Crumble Pie

Blueberry Crumble Pie

This blueberry crumble pie came as a sweet, sweet surprise this summer. Typically I don’t make fruit pies because when I buy the precious, expensive organic berries at the WCGM I can’t bear to bake them – they’re fresh and perfect as is. This pie used frozen berries and we always have a few...

Chickpea Blondies

Chickpea Blondies

I am well aware that this recipe will not appeal to 90 percent of those who see it but honestly, it’s more for me than you. This is why. My kids were outside when I made them and came in to see them cooling on the counter. They begged for a bite and I...

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

This cake. So don’t even ask me why, but I made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for a Memorial Day get together this past spring. I had watched the beautiful Joanna Gaines put together her Black Forest cake on Instagram and it seemed easy and looked delicious. I just wanted the cake part,...

Microwaved Mini Chocolate Cakes

Microwaved Mini Chocolate Cakes

For Tessa’s 8th birthday we hosted her third annual “sleep-under”, in which the girls come in their pjs, we eat cinnamon rolls and bacon, they have a dance party, and then they go home to their parents to sleep, all sugared up. This year we asked for books as gifts, and our favorite was...

Easy Chocolate Pot de Creme

Easy Chocolate Pot de Creme

The Creme should have an accent over the first e, but just ask me if I know how to do that. This was a recipe I’d pulled out of my America’s Test Kitchen magazine in 2008. That was before I even got married! I love that about food – this recipe is just as...

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My husband has always preferred the oatmeal raisin cookie. He is in the minority and I know this because I used to do a cookie bar graph with my little preschoolers at work. Chocolate chip is the overwhelming favorite, with snickerdoodle or “sugar” snagging second. Usually one kid likes oatmeal raisin – apparently this...
