Black Velvet Cupcakes with Chocolate Webs

The weather here is deceptively warm yet, it’s too cold to go into the water anymore which only reminds me that summer is really gone *sigh* #firstworldproblems so when my neighbor approached me this weekend with a fun halloween project, I jumped at the chance to whip up these velvet cupcakes with a spooky halloween [...]

1 Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie for 1

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I get a ton of requests.  Some random, some weird.  But since school started, I’ve been receiving them from students wondering what they can make in their cramped quarters, often only equipped with a microwave.  I know for me, the biggest cravings I fought were for hot chocolate chip cookies so I decided to share [...]

Pocky

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These sweet and crunchy chocolate pocky bring up a huge nostalgic factor for me. Every visit to the Asian market with my mama saw me with these on the way out.  It was like our reward for good behavior.  Since then, I’ve formulated a recipe that captures its essence and I’ve only grown to love [...]

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

J will be the first to tell you that I’m incapable of exercising moderation, particularly when it comes to good eats.  I’m an all or nothing kind of gal.  Case in point?  These 3 layer brownies.  Homemade salted caramel sauce {a recipe that only takes 3 minutes, by the way} gets generously oozed over the salty [...]

Mini Chocolate Donuts {Baked}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My only regret in life?  Not ever owning an easy bake oven.  {Kidding…kind of}  Boy was I envious of all my friends that would have me over to watch as miniature treats would magically emerge from that iconic pink oven. Ah, sweet nostalgia. So when I saw this miniature donut pan at the shop, the [...]

Oreo Pudding Cookies

To be quite honest, I had no idea what these even were but per baby brother and his friends requests, I tested these in my kitchen, having a good ole’ time ripping open nostalgic pudding packs, that unmistakable smell taking me back to middle school again.  I produced this recipe by scaling back both the [...]

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These cookies are light and crisp on the edges, chewy and rich in the center, and have a delicate crackly crust on top, a hybrid cookie and brownie if you will.  I actually made these when I ran out of flour and I’m happy to report I’ve made them several times afterwards because they’re just [...]

Red Velvet Fudge

Remember what I said about needing something sweet to polish off that steak?  Well, here it is.  Even if you’re incapacitated from supper, this is something you can still whip up in a matter of moments {specially for you procrastinators out there} 5 ingredients, 15 minutes.  That’s all you need. 5.0 from 4 reviews Red [...]

Paleo Brownies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What is paleo?  A primal diet including whole foods of wild plants/animals while excluding grains, legumes, dairy, sugar or refined oils. With the new year, comes new resolutions and a wise man once told me that moderation is the key {applying to more than just diets}.  These are revamped with healthy additions, making them paleo [...]

Peppermint Brownies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are a triple threat with a bottom layer of deep, dark chocolate fudgy brownies, a middle pink layer of creamy peppermint, and a top glaze of glossy chocolate sauce.  When devoured at room temperature, the entire bite melts in your mouth but it’s also good to know that these keep their shape with each [...]
