Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies have become a seasonal favorite in my house and featured among the first recipes that I blogged back in 2008.  Since the recipe is buried in the archives and accompanied by a terrible photograph, I figured I would dust it off and repost in order to share with my newer readers. These cookies […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

July 14, 2011

My 31st birthday is less than a week away and I haven’t made too much of a dent in my 30-While-30 list.  While there are a few things that I’ve made, but not photographed, the vast majority of items have remained untouched.  So, I haven’t tried my hand at homemade fondant or whipped up English […]

Coffee Chip Ice Cream

July 9, 2010

My neighbors must think I’m crazy.  I recently discovered that the late-afternoon light in my backyard is just perfect for food photography.  I regularly scamper into the backyard with a white resin table, place-mat, dish of food and my camera and proceed to crawl around on the ground snapping pictures.  Taking this picture was a […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

July 2, 2010

I’m a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to chocolate chip cookie dough. While others grew up stealing tastes or outright devouring raw dough, I shunned it in fear of raw eggs. In fact, I still won’t consume uncooked cookie dough. But homemade eggless cookie dough – that’s another matter entirely. This ice […]

Toll House Cookies

I love having a well-stocked freezer. A double batch of vegetarian black bean chili and multiple portions of Mexican rice have saved the day on multiple occasions. I freeze leftover sauce, broth, black beans and shredded chicken to prevent leftovers from spoiling and to save for future use. However, the most enjoyable part of my […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

January 24, 2009

I haven’t baked in nearly a month. After my Christmas baking extravaganza, I decided that I needed to take break from sweets and embarked upon a one month baking moratorium. Entertaining or bringing goodies to a friends home were the only exceptions to my rule. We had company tonight, so I could bake with a […]
