Maple Pecan Cookies

Maple Pecan Cookies

A nice fall cookie here – crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, but not cakey. The flavor isn’t overly sweet – they’re the kind of cookie you want more than one of. Don’t think you can omit the maple flavor if you’re using maple syrup; if you’ve ever baked with maple syrup...

Whole Wheat Strawberry Jam Bars

Whole Wheat Strawberry Jam Bars

I loved this treat for it’s simplicity. I feel like this is the type of the snack moms in the 1950’s would make for their kids when they got home from school. I made it because I bought a jar of strawberry jam from Costco that is the size of a small dog. 

Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

I recently threw my love Alison a going away party because she’s sadly moving to Atlanta (I ultimately blame Covid). Our friend Carrie said she would bring cookies and though the party was loud and crowded I overheard several people talking about how good the cookies were. I grabbed one and yes, absolutely delicious,...

Toffee Brownie Trifle

Toffee Brownie Trifle

Oh man. This brownie trifle is reminiscent of an “icebox” dessert your mom may have made when you were younger, especially if you make it in a 9×13 pyrex pan instead of a trifle bowl, which I did here. I brought this to a get together with friends and we ate about half of...

Tahini Banana Snack Cake

Tahini Banana Snack Cake

There have been a lot of healthy recipes lately and it’s time for something delectable. This recipe comes straight from my favorite cookbook for kids, The (surprise surprise) America’s Test Kitchen Complete Baking Book for Young Chefs. Tessa also has the cook book version. Both books are AWESOME and the intros and guides are...

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

This recipe is from America’s test kitchen except for that I subbed 1 1/2 c. bittersweet chocolate chips for the 1 c. of pecans and the 1/2 c. of milk chocolate. Why? Because their method is perfection and yields the most dense, chewy cookie bars that you can imagine. The change is because I’m...

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...
