Snickerdoodle Blondies

I have the best job. Not everyone’s job description includes making snickerdoodle blondies.  But yesterday morning, I was forced to do just that. When I threw the idea out on Twitter, there was such an excited response that I just couldn’t let everyone down. And so, still in my pjs, I set about making a gigantic […]

A Blondie Moment

In truth, I figured most of you would be weirded out by the idea of “hummus blondies” and write off the recipe. But instead, at least twenty thirty of you have already tried the recipe! Chocolate-Chip Blondies What about the Snickerdoodle version? Yesterday, I hinted about this on Twitter. I’d planned to give you that recipe in […]

Healthy Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies {NO flour!}

So a blonde walks into a bar. Or in this case, the blonde is the bar! I’d tell you these Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies are healthy. But then, if you try them, you will think I am a liar and never believe another word I say. If you taste the chickpea blondies, you won’t believe they’re healthy! […]

Want to be featured?

I want to feature you! Every time someone blogs about one of my recipes, it puts a huge smile on my face. This past week, especially, I can’t tell you how much I’ve needed that smile. I really want to give some of this happiness back. But because my blog is a recipe blog, not a […]

Blue Velvet Cupcakes – No food coloring needed!

People love Red Velvet. But why does it have to only be red velvet? What about green velvet, purple velvet, or—dare I say it—blue velvet? When I was asked to make cupcakes for a boy baby shower, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try my hand at blue velvet cupcakes. However, two problems […]

Junk Belly

I didn’t think anything could make me feel better. But reading the comments on yesterday’s post did make me smile. Well, some of them made me cry, but in a constructive way; sometimes it’s good to cry. I was so incredibly moved by your outpouring of kindness and support. Reading the heartfelt comments, tweets, emails, and facebook messages helped […]

What’s currently going on in my life

Hey y’all, You may or may not have noticed that I didn’t publish a blog post yesterday. (Normally I publish every day at around 10am EST.) I just had no desire to blog yesterday, feeling way too sad to write a fun post about chocolate or cookies or breakfast. I know people don’t read my […]

Snickerdoodle Pancakes

Good morning, Snickerdoodles! Do you like snickerdoodle cookies? They’re not my favorite, because they don’t have chocolate! But my mom adores snickerdoodles. So, for Mothers’ Day, I decided to get creative with her breakfast. Apparently, the name “snickerdoodle” comes from a German word for “snail noodles” (a type of pastry). Yummy? 😕 Snickerdoodle Pancakes (makes […]

The frog ate my cookie?

Ribbit Ribbit! The following is what happens when a group of very-mature girls in their mid-twenties gets together: Hi, my name is Fred. Under my green exterior lies a Cookie Ball Pop. I am 100% edible, right down to my… wait a second, where are my feet?!?! I smile because I have no idea what’s […]

Chocolate Cookie Ball Pops

Man cannot live on chocolate alone. But woman can. And Katie totally can. Everything’s better covered in chocolate. Cookie Ball Pops are no exception. Well, maybe broccoli is an exception. But this post isn’t about broccoli; thank goodness. It’s about chocolate-covered Cookie Ball Pops. These pops look super-elegant, like they came from a gourmet candy […]
