I hope you’re ready to see a billion underexposed photos of the same exact dough over and over and over again. Please say yes, because you will be rewarded with this. This was a… project.
Certain things happen when you bake cookies that taste like muffins. Cookies become breakfast food. Midnight snacks too. You pass them off as two servings of fruit. Or three. You sleep-eat cookies.
When I tell you this, take me very seriously…..run, don’t walk to your nearest grocery store and make these today! I knew I wanted to make a Nutella treat the other day and when this simple idea came to mind I had no idea how crazy good it would be! The pastry with the gooey disappearing marshmallow and nutella make for a treat that you just must try for yourself! Enjoy! Can you handle this line up?! Sorry, I forgot to add one egg for the egg wash
A lot of people get the wrong impression about macarons and avoid making them because they’re supposedly the most difficult thing in the world to make. Truly, they’re not difficult at all. What is difficult is mastering them. For some reason people mistakenly think if something can’t be mastered on the first try, it’s too hard to fool with. But there’s no reason to master macarons on the first try.
For those of you who read this blog regularly, you will know that macarons are one of my obsessions. Some of you may remember a couple of my early attempts ( here , here , and here ), then the epiphany of the class at Lenôtre in Paris. Following that class, I had a number of successes and I found the recipe to be very similar to Helene’s (of Tartelette blog ) and I used a combination of the Lenôtre techniques with Helene’s recipe most of last year, with varying success. Being a Taurean (stubborn) and A-type (a planner) what bugged me about macarons was how unpredictable they were. On many occasions I have wanted to make them for dinner parties or gifts but given the fact that I never knew if it was going to be a “feet” kinda day, I always chose something else.
I baked this spring bouquet of cupcakes for my Weekend Baker post on the Cooking Channel blog. I was limited in space and wanted to go into a bit lot more detail on how to pipe the icing roses. Creating these flowers is not at all difficult, but it helps to have some simple tricks of the trade. With a little practice and the right tools you can easily recreate these flowers.

Need a midnight snack? Or anytime snack for that matter, my cookies and cream peanut butter might just knock your socks off I was so lucky to have my sister and her family visit earlier this week and I got to have some kitchen time with her beautiful girls.
Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah.

I don’t care if cake pops are the new cupcakes. I despise them. Pie pops I could probably get behind, but cake pops… no. Just no. So I remain convinced that the next best thing since cupcakes is still the French import of macarons. Several weekends ago, I took a “Mastering Macarons” class at Sur La Table.
The new year is all about eating healthy isn't it? Well for me, a heathy body includes a healthy mind. And sugar is one of those necessary things to sustain a healthy mind. It is almost a daily consumption for me. And I don't mean eating a whole apple pie or chocolate cake , but a cookie or a (heaping) spoonful of Nutella. Of course some days I will indulge more than others, and when that happens you eat a bit more broccoli or bike a little further.
Craving a snack? Put down that bag of chips and step away from that chocolate chip cookie. Instead, try these eats, which are loaded with healthy fats that help control hunger and promote weight loss.
