Bake or Break | Outrageous Chocolate Cookies Quinn and I are not among the throngs who celebrate Valentine’s Day. That day and all the chaos surrounding it have never appealed to me. Luckily, Quinn feels the same way.

I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? Thus, given my proximity to concrete-like materials you’d think I have been better prepared for the texture of the one I purchased from the vending machine in the basement of my freshman dorm (not at 4 a.m. or anything, either, nope, not this angel!). But I was not.
60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie A la Mode
This is a recipe I adapted from one I found in “Barefoot in Paris”. We had friends over for dinner so I served this Vegetable Tian and it was a HUGE hit. The veggies were perfectly roasted, the potatoes were nice and tender and the caramelized onions were sweet and salty. The whole dish was delicious and it looked really pretty too. All of my friends loved these roasted vegetables and so did most of the kids.
How to Make Thai Iced Tea From Scratch The past few days we’ve had summer-like temperatures here in New York and we ate outside on our tiny balcony for the first time this year.
Chocolate Mint Brownie Bites I didn’t know what to call these things. Mint Brownie Bites didn’t seem descriptive enough. Chocolate Mint Brownie Bites seemed to fit, but isn’t “chocolate” and “brownie” redundant? Mini Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites? Chocolate Mint Mini Brownies?
Nutella Krispie Treats I don’t know what happened, but all of a sudden we’re on a huge Rice Krispie Treat kick in our house. When I cleaned out my pantry and got it all organized and stocked again, several boxes of Rice Krispies (and several bags of marshmallows) wound up on my shelves…and we’ve already blown through them all. And it’s not even me.
A couple of weeks ago (or was it a couple of years ago? Or a couple of months ago? Or is it next week? I’m confused) I posted this luscious recipe for Pepperoni Pizza burgers: Pepperoni Pizza Burgers. Amen. Supreme Pizza Burgers

Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?”
Sloppy Joes Recipe The trick to this recipe is to brown the meat well, on high heat. Don't crowd the pan, work in batches, and don't stir the meat until it is well browned on one side. It helps to use a large cast iron pan, or an anodized aluminum pan, as these pans can handle the heat and are relatively stick-free. Method 1 Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium high heat.
All you really need for guacamole is ripe avocados and salt. After that, the next most important ingredient is lime juice (or lemon if you don't have lime). Then come the cilantro, chiles, onion, and tomato. Ingredients
Recipe: espresso chocolate chip shortbread What new views through the lens? I went leaf hunting today and found… tall trees
I am busted. Someone figured out that I made this over a week ago and have been holding out on you and called me out on it. Guilty as charged. I know nobody will believe me, but I swear, sometimes I just come up blank. I keep trying to figure out how I can convince you that you should make this now, right now, but I’m having a hard time. It’s January, after all, the month of absolving (oneself of having eaten a lot bacon) and resolving (to stop eating so much bacon), and I suspect that the last thing people want to be taunted with is a homemade pizza, creamy tangy base, lightly caramelized onions and thick crunchy salty smoky-sweet — that’s right — bacon lardons. pizza with bacon, onions and cream
My first day back to work after New Years started with my laptop flat lining, having to clean the office pantry microwave after my oatmeal blew up in it, finding myself completely and frantically over my head in a new bit of work I personally requested the week before and a wind-tunneled trip to the new Apple store to gaze at the shiny brightness. In short, I had hoped to be gently eased into 2008, but since that wasn’t in the cards for me, I ended it with a dinner of French Toast. What? Tell me that you’re not jealous. But you know what else I did, you know, in my maple syrup haze? I completed one half of one of my smittenkitchen new years resolutions! viennese cucumber salad
