Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
I made you a pie. Well, okay… I made you the filling of a pie. I bought the crust. I don’t do crusts. Remember when I tried? Yeah… not happening. But I made croissants so that makes up for it. Way back when I shared a chocolate chip cookie pie that I found on a yellowed scrap of newspaper in my mom’s recipe box… and it literally tasted like a giant chocolate chip cookie. I’ve only made it once since then because if it’s made, it’s eaten. By me. All of it. Just try it. So… I made the pie with pumpkin. I woke up on Sunday morning with one thought in my mind: pumpkin chocolate chip cookie pie. Alright, I sorta do. See, for the last four weeks I’ve been trying to perfect a seriously CHEWY pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. I’m probably the reason for the pumpkin shortage because, um… I think I’ve gone through at least 10 cans trying to perfect these stupid chewy cookies. I’m convinced waking up with pumpkin cookie pie on the brain was the universe’s way of telling me to lay off the cookies. Print Save

The Comfort of Eggs in a Basket Eggs in a basket was the first meal I ever cooked. I was in 5th grade, and it was a Sunday morning at my best friend's house after a sleepover. We woke up hungry, and for some reason his parents weren't home. This confused me--my parents would never do that--but more important than confusion was the fact that I was terribly hungry, and I didn't see how that problem was going to be solved, since his house never had any cereal in it. Double Chocolate Craisin Cookies I made Double Chocolate Craisin Cookies recently and soon thereafter came to a realization I was born in the wrong body. I enjoyed the sinfully delicious chocolate cookies exploding with dark chocolate morsels and dotted with cranberries dried into tart remnants of their former selves. How many different ways are there to make chocolate cookies? I don’t know, but I’m inspired to find out. And I like to do as much personal taste testing as possible.

Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!! But I am kind of behind on my cooking and baking as well since I've been gone and cleaning. Not to mention, I needed an Oreo fix! Correcting The World's Wrongs With Campfire Bananas "What are you doing?" my husband asked. He was staring at me as if I had eighteen heads, each with 20 piercings and Mike Tyson-esque tattoos.

Mudslide and Brownie Trifle Stacking this multi-layered dessert are rich custard layers of chocolate pudding with Kahlua and vanilla pudding with Bailey’s Irish Cream. Cut between those rich layers is a welcoming interruption of tender crushed brownie bits and crunchy roasted almonds. Mudslide and Brownie Trifle

The toasted marshmallow, the melted chocolate, the crunch of the graham cracker. You put them together and it’s bliss.

Creamy Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Summer has been so good to us this year. I'm trying desperately to hold on to any remainders of this wonderful season. I've already frozen tons of slices of peaches for a cold winter afternoon when I need a juicy peach cobbler. I'm now making my way through all the blackberries we have close to our house. Jam will be made, don't you worry. For now, because we've been enduring the craziest heat wave, the blackberries are turned into smoothies and other cold treats. How To Make Perfect Brownies I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking. This is the brownie recipe that I’ll use from now on.

Puffy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips I have cookie moods. Occasionally, I crave a paper thin cookie – the only kind my dad really likes – when I’m aching for dessert with a raging sweet tooth that just won’t quit. Other days, when I’m reaching for comfort and sometimes feel like eating my emotions, I look for the perfectly thick, chewy cookie, still gooey from the oven, plucked from it’s baking sheet in pieces because I lack patience.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup in a Bread Bowl November 6, 2009 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread, cheese, soup I have an unhealthy addiction to Panera’s broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl (I have an unhealthy addiction to fresh, warm bread in general). But the soup is great too; perfect for cold, rainy days when all you want to do is curl up on the couch with a blanket and a good movie. It was one of those cold, rainy days when I decided that I wanted broccoli cheddar soup, but I didn’t want to go out into the crummy weather to get it. So, I decided to create my own.
