Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to revisit my grandmother’s Banana Bread recipe and play around with the flavors. I didn’t want to disrupt the structural integrity of the bread too much, so I started with adding the flavor components I wanted. What I got was a moist bread with a crisp crust. I ended up using 2 1/2 bananas, which I think contributed to the moisture in conjunction with the addition of the peanut butter and chocolate. If you want a stronger peanut butter flavor, I definitely recommend having 1 1/2 to 2 bananas, and potentially taking the butter content down to 1/3 to add in 1/4-1/3 cup of peanut butter.
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Today I have a recipe that’s I have been wanting to make for a good while. Chocolate and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this cookie doesn’t disappoint. The cinnamon chips gives the cookies a warmth fitting for the colder months coming up or for a holiday cookie platter. I slightly altered my recipe for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, which resulted in a cookie that was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you are all keeping cool this three-day weekend. If you’re looking for something to sweeten up your picnics, try out these cookies. They are fudgy and pack a chocolate punch. You can crumble them over some ice cream or enjoy them directly out of the oven. Continue reading “Triple Chocolate Cookies”→
Good Morning and Happy Valentine’s Day! It feels good to be back making recipes again. I thought I would make a special post and share a recipe I originally made back in college. Though technically back then I didn’t use recipes, I think I was able to make something just as sweet. No matter if or how you celebrate Valentine’s day, it’s a wonderful excuse to have a bit of fun baking and share with the ones you care about. If you are looking for a dessert with a warm, chocolatey center to melt that special someone’s (or your own) heart, look no further!
Good Morning and Happy Friday! What better way to celebrate than with a little chocolate? If you are needing a little bit of snow, these sugar dusted cookies might just do the trick. At least, they always reminded me of a cold, snowy day.
Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I wanted to try to make something I haven’t made before – shortbread. Shortbread is a firm favorite of my mother and brother. I only really remember my family making it from scratch one time in my life, and I didn’t really remember what it entailed. I just remembered it was a crisp and wonderfully buttery treat.
Good Morning and Happy Monday! Today’s festive recipe will hopefully make the holiday baking bug start to bloom. That’s right, we’re making peanut blossoms today. These cookies are one of the few Christmas cookie staples my family make each year. The first dozen of peanut blossoms never lasted long because everyone wanted a cookie right out of the oven. The chocolate was perfectly melted over a wonderfully warm peanut butter cookie. What’s better than that?
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to take a step back this week and just make some cookies. These are good for those cosy days that you really want to take some time out and make a little something sweet. From browning the butter to chopping up the chocolate, it’s all about slowing down. These have the warm kind of sweetness that caramel has from the browned butter.
Good Morning and Happy November! It’s crazy to me how fast this year is going. I was running errands this weekend and was greeted with festive cheer. Not that I should be surprised since we are past Halloween, but I am not personally ready to completely give up fall yet.
Good morning! It’s hard to believe September is halfway over already. It doesn’t quite feel like fall yet as it’s still 80 degrees outside, but the mornings are getting crisper. This week I am revisiting a recipe I made my sophomore year at ISU.
