The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that.

I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough.

Slutty Brownies Now I don't want to over sell this, so I'm going to be conservative and simply say, that these are... The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They're called Slutty Brownies because they're oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They're best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn't have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I'll just have to make them again). Slutty Brownies

Key Lime Pie Recipe at Epicurious yield Makes 8 servings Key limes are also known as Mexican or West Indian limes. If you can't find them in your area, substitute bottled Key lime juice.
