The Chocolate Chip Cookie Experiment: 1. Nestle Tollhouse Recipe

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Experiement: how did these Classic Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies measure up? I'm testing 52 Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes, on a mission to find the very best one!

I've been toying around with the idea of doing a seriously major chocolate chip cookie experiment for a while. But I couldn't quite figure out the logistics of making it work with the blog... for instance: should I do a year's worth of recipes? 6 months? Are there even that many recipes out there? And do I just stick with the classic greats (NY Times, Nestle, etc..)? Or should I test out newer, more creative blogger recipes too? Would you guys get sick of chocolate chip cookies? Is anyone … [Continue reading...]

White Chocolate M&M Snickerdoodle Bars

White Chocolate M&M Snickerdoodle Bars

One of the great ironies in my life is that I start posting Fall recipes full of pumpkin, cinnamon spice blends, and candy corn as early as August 15. I get antsy if I'm not post Pumpkin by August 31. But for the life of me, I cannot get my Fall decorations out of their storage boxes until we're practically knocking on the door of Thanksgiving. Fortunately, Chris cares. So between him and my mom, our front door looks a little Autumn-y. They've arranged some mums and a pumpkin, and it looks … [Continue reading...]

I mentioned before that I’ve just recently discovered I am a candy corn fanatic. Like, up until just a few weeks ago, I really, really, really thought I didn’t like candy corn. Turns out: I was so wrong. I almost always keep candy corn on hand for candy jars and bowls around Halloween, because A) […]

Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pancakes

Buttery brown sugar and cinnamon swirled into fluffy pumpkin pancakes, topped with a dreamy cream cheese cinnamon roll frosting. Perfect for a yummy Fall breakfast!

I have a serious love-hate relationship with cinnamon roll pancakes. They were suuuuuuuuper popular about a year ago. And it’s no wonder why– the pictures were absolutely drool-worthy. And the concept: totally genius. I mean, who doesn’t want cinnamon roll filling swirled in their pancakes smothered in cinnamon roll frosting? Everyone does. But have you […]

Rolo Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Rolo Oatmeal Cookie Bars are ooey, gooey, and dangerously easy to make!

About 4 years and 2-ish months ago, I spent a lot of time in bed in the mornings with my newborn baby and my new found obsession with reading blogs. The first blog I think I ever started reading was, of course, Bakerella. Soon after I discovered Cookies and Cups, Bake at 350, and Somewhat […]

Pumpkin Cornmeal Pancakes

Pumpkin Cornmeal Pancakes are an incredibly delicious way to welcome fall. Moist and soft on the inside, buttery crispy edges, and drowned in maple syrup; these pancakes will be your favorite pumpkin recipe of the season!

Sometimes I wish I had a big neon, blinking sign that said, “MAKE THIS! RIGHT NOW! SERIOUSLY!” If I did, I’d plop it down right here in the middle of this post with the arrow pointing straight at these pancakes. They’re that good. Three weeks into September, and we’ve already had quite a lot of […]

I went out of town last week for a conference at BYU (my alma mater) in Provo, Utah.  It was a total blast. I learned a lot, and I loved taking a 4-day long stroll down memory lane with both old friends and new ones. But……… I couldn’t believe how hard it was to be […]

PB Candy Corn Pretzel Bark

White chocolate and swirls of peanut butter paired with Candy Corn, Reese's Pieces, and Pretzels make for festive sweet & salty treat!

I’ve always been pretty firmly planted in the I-don’t-eat-candy-corn camp. Three weeks ago, I didn’t like it at all. Today… I think I’m an addict. I don’t know what’s changed. Maybe my taste buds are growing up? But that doesn’t really make sense. It’s candy corn for goodness sake. I mean, if that’s not a […]

  Who else is SO excited for TV to start again??? I’ve never really considered myself a TV junkie. But I think I had withdrawals over the summer. Like serious withdrawals. I’m thinking I may actually be more than just the average casual TV watcher. (you can read all about my tendency to form unhealthy […]

Peanut Butter Butterscotch Fudge

Easy 2-Ingredient Peanut Butter Butterscotch Fudge is simply incredible and SO EASY to make!

This is totally not related to the recipe– but it’s all-consuming me at the moment, so we’re just going to have to take a moment to discuss it: Do you get into books? Like realllllly into books? I do. To the point it’s been a real problem for me in life. Like, I become so […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a classic and my very favorite!

Last year I was on this crazy-woman quest to develop a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe that wouldn’t be so puffy and cake-y. I came up with these Browned Butter Pumpkin Pudding cookies; which use a little less pumpkin puree, warmed (well, practically scorched, actually) butter, and pumpkin pudding mix to bring together a great […]

Best Ever Chocolate Frosting

This is honest-to-goodness the best chocolate frosting I've ever eaten in my entire life. Silky smooth like store-bought, but tastes SO MUCH BETTER!

Oh you guys. This frosting. This frosting!!! I seriously don’t even have words to tell you how in love I am with this recipe, but I’ll try anyway… You know how a part of you secretly (or, I guess, not-so-secretly for some of us) really loves store-bought, canned frosting despite the bizarrely effective preservatives and […]

Fluffer Nutter Stuffed Oreos

The best way to eat Oreos. Period!

These Fluffer Nutter Stuffed Oreos have been my go-to lately. Because it seems like there’s always a reason to give out a little treat bag for something or other– “Thanks for babysitting!” “You’re our favorite teacher!” “Wow! You’re in med school!” …yadda, yadda, yadda. There’s always something, right? And when it comes to little last […]
