There’s nothing like a good chocolate chip cookie… unless of course, if it’s super-sized and more than an inch thick. So when I found this recipe from my aunt’s Nestle Classic Recipes Cookbook a while back, I knew it was a must-make. Serve it warm, with ice cream, with syrup… and with caution… because you’ll definitely want another slice. Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell* 2 large eggs 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened 1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels 1 cup chopped pecans Serve with ice cream (optional)
Breakfast was not a special meal in my house growing up. At least, not in the sense that we enjoyed fancy homemade cinnamon rolls and coffee cakes on a regular basis. Sure, we made pancakes (from a box) on weekends, but it was nothing to write home about. In fact, I had never heard of the strangely titled dish Monkey Bread until I started food writing a few years back. What was this beautiful, mysterious pile of dough that people ate for breakfast?
I’ve been over and over my deep, undying love for cheesecake, and also my reluctance to make a full size one because I will undoubtedly eat it all myself. Recently I’ve been experimenting with various ways to have cheesecake in individual, more portable portions that make it slightly easier to prevent the gobbling situation – mainly because it is so easy to give away and share with others. These raspberry cheesecake cupcakes were a natural choice for me, a lover of both cheesecake and cupcakes (and raspberries!) I didn’t make any major changes to this recipe. However, a water bath is suggested to prevent the cakes from cracking.
I’m about to get real crafty on you. I love making gifts. Buying a gift is fun, especially if you get to see the recipient open it, but making gifts is hugely entertaining. For me, it’s an excuse to try ridiculous and absurd and totally unnecessary edibles. Like this. I’ve been wanting to make homemade hot chocolate as a gift now for some time, but felt somewhat neutral on the idea of mixing together cocoa and sugar in a jar to create a mix.
We live in a big-but-not-huge town. We have a P.F. Chang's and a Pottery Barn and two malls and two full-price movie theaters. But we don't have a Williams-Sonoma. Instead, we have a few delightful, locally-owned kitchen stores. One of them holds a monthly baking contest, and these Carmelitas were supposed to be my ticket to local baking contest greatness.
I know, I have done 4 whole posts without dessert. I am making it up to you with this one, o man. Another awesome birthday present I got was this gorgeous thing: So of course I have been baking up a storm!! Now let me tell you, you BY NO MEANS, ever have to have a mixer to bake-I have done everything for years by hand or with a hand mixer. But it is pretty darn cute and it does make things easier and faster.

A few weeks ago I was perusing the interwebs, mainly pinterest, because it’s my latest obsession and I spend an inordinate amount of time pinning things that I want to eat, and things that I want at my wedding. I’m not quite sure how people planned weddings before Pinterest. It’s kinda the greatest invention of all times. But while I was knee deep in my wedding pinning extravaganza, I stumbled across something called Slutty Brownies. Clearly these caught my attention immediately. They are the brilliant creation of The Londoner , who is just pretty much awesome.
