Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday! It’s going to be a good week. I say this because I’m starting it with some freshly baked cookies and that’s pretty awesome. It’s nice to start the week on a sweet note. These are the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I know they may look like regular chocolate…

Chocolate Crepe Cake

This was a good one. I made a crepe cake. Yes, cake made of crepes (and whipped cream). It’s a beautiful thing. I made this for my dad’s birthday over the holidays and he absolutely loved it. This was my first time making crepes (and crepe cake) and I was super excited. I used the…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The holiday season is here. Chanukah starts tomorrow, so I’m super excited for that. I can’t wait to stuff my face with latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Those are the two most commonly eaten foods on this holiday. If you want to make your own latkes this year, you can check out two of…

Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Smoothie

Let me just start by saying I was never a huge smoothie drinker. I don’t know why, but I never really made myself smoothies nor did I really ever have the desire to do so. However, since making the cinnamon-almond green smoothie from the Love Real Food cookbook (link here), I’ve been on a smoothie…

Chocolate & Cranberry Biscotti

If you like a cookie with a little more texture, I’d recommend making some biscotti. Based on the name – bi (two) and cotti (cooked) – these cookies are baked twice, which gives them a nice crunch. I’ve made almond-orange biscotti before that turned out incredible (link here) but today I tried a new recipe….

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a classic treat? I haven’t made a basic chocolate chip cookie in so long, I almost forgot how good they are. I was just in a baking mood so I made a recipe from Gimme Some Oven (link here). The recipe name says these cookies are the BEST, and honestly, they’re pretty…

Recipe #46: German Chocolate Cake

Just wanted to start this post by saying happy holidays to everyone. No matter what you celebrate – Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza – I hope you are with the people you love and eating lots of good food. I celebrate Chanukah so I’ve been eating my fair share of jelly doughnuts and potato pancakes (in hebrew:…

Recipe #35: Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

No bake desserts? Uh yes please! If you want a nice treat in a pinch, you should try these cookies. This no-bake snack reminds me of the trail mix granola bites I made a little while back (recipe #20 here). These types of desserts are just so great to make and keep in the fridge…
