These no bake Oreo cookies are even better than an Oreo…  Homemade Oreo cookies?! Ah, your eyes are playing tricks on you. What you really see is even better than an Oreo.

Do you know what a chocoholic eats for lunch?

Pin It!

I had fun with lunch yesterday: A Banana-Split Sandwich! With fresh strawberries and homemade Chocolate Banana Butter. The chocolate took the sandwich over the top and reminded me of eating frosting.

Strawberry Frosting Shots!

Pin It!

Behold. A tall tower of strawberry mousse: It’s a strawberry skyscraper! I do not have a green thumb. No really, I actually managed to kill a cactus once. And most of the fruits or vegetables I plant either end up dead or devoured by some greedy lawn creatures. (Darn squirrels!) So this year I was […]

It’s like summer on a cone. I got the idea for brownie fro-yo after making the Brownie Batter Dip.

It’s not jacket weather anymore. Quick! Can anyone name that movie quote?? No, it’s definitely not jacket weather anymore; at least not here in Texas.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie… Without Sugar!

Pin It!

Happy Birthday! To celebrate a birthday, one often eats pie. But what do you eat when the birthday is for the pie, itself?

My Big Secret

I’m lousy at keeping secrets. Therefore, many of you already know that yes, there is going to be… a Chocolate-Covered Cookbook! I started dreaming about a cookbook when an agent first contacted me back in 2009. But as a busy college student, it was more of a “someday in the future this might be nice” idea. […]
