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...

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...
