peanut butter cups

November 27, 2012

0

My love of Reese’s overcame me the other day. I had to have some. I buy chocolate chips and or baking chocolate when they are on sale, or when I have coupons. I had a few bags in the drawer with no real plan to use them. I got a metric ton of creamy peanut […]

reeses cupcakes

I may be more interested in making chocolate things, now that I have an outlet for them. I’ll try a bite here and there, but I still don’t search out chocolate things (save my absolute favorite candy that is hidden inside this cupcake) but most of the things I bake get packed up and delivered to people […]

gooey butter cake

November 14, 2012

This theme-y cooking stuff is for the birds! I’ve lost two weeks in a row now at fantasy football, and I blame it entirely on my wanting to be all matchy-matchy with London and fish’n’chips, and that the Pats played St. Louis in London, so I made this gooey butter cake. I really shouldn’t be […]

simple oatmeal cookies

“Well,” I said “I can make oatmeal cookies, but I don’t have a damn thing to put in them. No chocolate chips, no raisins, nothing!” To this, I got a bit of a weird look. “Convenient. I don’t like oatmeal cookies that have stuff in them.” Enough said! I was off to the stand mixer […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, and I knew I had to make it. It looked delicious. I was a bit confused as to how the crumb topping ended up being on the bottom. But as long as there was a crumbly sugary part, really who cares if it ends […]

no-bake oreo cheesecake

My MO lately has been to buy Oreos while they are on sale. It’s amazing the things you can stick these buggers in! Mash them up, or just sneak a handful or make some cupcakes. It’s nice to have a reserve in the snack drawer, whenever I get the feeling to make something, theres usually […]

lemon & lime meltaways

One of my biggest recurring victories is cooking while using all items I already keep in the house. It doesn’t happen often that it works out perfectly, but when it does. Oooh. It’s a great thing. I found these while hopping from one blog to the next in the hopes that I would find a […]

not as good as nana’s brownies

September 24, 2012

What do I know about a good brownie? A better question might be, what the hell am I doing making brownies if I don’t like chocolate, but let’s not go there right now. I’m going to give them away tomorrow, or most of them anyways. One was more than enough for me, since now I’ll […]

Maybe the trick is, don’t buy three things in bulk, smack in the middle of your busiest week in a while. Maybe thats the bit of intelligence that was missing from my half-assed planning. So, I thought, what the hell! I’ll just get peaches. A hell of a lot of peaches. My friend who splits […]
