I baked for the sake of baking over the weekend. I had no one to feed nor an occasion to celebrate, I just wanted to make something in the kitchen. The result was quite delightful.
I made a shortbread type cookie flavored with almond extract. Dipped in chocolate and topped with powdered sugar, [...]
This year I received a new kind of box of chocolates for Valentine’s. Instead of chocolate truffles and bon-bons, I asked for (three months in advance) a box of cake balls. They look like large truffles on the outside, but inside, they are filled with cake crumbs mixed with frosting.
I am feeling the love just a week before Valentine’s day via baked goods. In years past, I could be found eating bon-bon after bon-bon for the month of February – but with a nut allergy now, I have to steer clear of my beloved Whitman’s sampler.

Fireplaces provide such a relaxing ambiance in a room. I’m drawn to them like a moth to a [...]
Four recipes actually came out of my chocolate chip cookie quest, but I only mentioned three in yesterday’s post. I saved the one I’m about to share for last because some chocolate cookie enthusiasts might laugh at it. It errs on the side of vegan, but believe me, it tastes good.
But first, I left [...]
Something as basic as a chocolate chip cookie can translated into a thousand different recipes. When I think of a warm, freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, I imagine something like Mrs. Field’s:

Round dough balls, light and [...]
