Pumpkin Spiced Bone Cookies

This Is Halloween Halloween! Seven hells, it’s already Halloween.. Do you remember last Halloween? I do. Like it was yesterday! But we mustn’t complain about how time is flying or we’ll find ourselves in 2015 before we finish the rant. Instead, let’s talk Halloween! Who has traditions? Let me know in the comments. Movies? Haunted houses? Parties? For us, the one thing we always do is watch Hocus Pocus with some cookies and hot cocoa. You …

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Conquistador So I started thinking, and I couldn’t remember the last time I made cookies. I remember strawberry, nutella & balsamic reduction empanadas, and an obscene amount of key lime brownies. But not cookies. With being out of the cookie game for so long (yes there’s a cookie game, and I didn’t choose it, it chose me), I wondered if I still had it in me. Then, more importantly, I wondered if I even had anything to bake …

Key Lime Brownies

Boom There are no words that can truly express the pure and utter joy I currently have. Not because we won the lotto or anything trivial like that. But because I can finally post these brownies.Let me tell you the story that led to this glorious moment. It all started when I was trying to think of something to do for my friends at Wilton. It had been a while since I posted for the …

Apple Pie Scones

I really didn’t want to be that guy who does nothing but constantly remind you how fast time is going, but seriously, we’re almost done with October and it’s absolutely insane. I mean, it’s great, don’t get me wrong. Being able to open your windows and have a crisp autumn breeze run through your house is an pleasure I look forward to through all of summer. Leaves falling, the colors, the smells, The Nightmare Before …

Please accept a picture of these awesome Pumpkin Swirled Brownies as consultation for any inconvenience this may cause. Ok, fine. I’m not funded by the government. Can you believe it though? I can’t.

Cinnamon Swirl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Flobots – White Flag Warrior I know we’re more than a week into it but seriously, freaking September?! I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the age we live in now where the world is at our fingertips, but when I was a kid a year felt like a year. On top of that, the month of December felt like a year too. I mean, should I be like retail stores and start with …

Chocolate Chip Orange Cookies

Pink – Here Comes The Weekend There are plenty of good things that come out of taking what feels like years to customize your blog the way you want it. One of those things is having a nice chunk of content to blog about when you get to posting again. I haven’t really made something substantial in weeks and yet I have a few weeks worth of stuff that I could write about. I have …

Brownie Points

Alright, before you get all googly eyed and start to develop a puddle of drool on your keyboard, let it be known that I do not like these brownies. When I walked into the kitchen to make them, I had a very different end product in my mind. It consisted of these brownies, topped with salt and a white chocolate butter cream frosting with all sorts of pizzazz on top of them. It was going to …

Sugar and Spice…

Out of everything I make during the holidays, this has got to be my favorite. I’m a lover of spices and can appreciate the assault on the senses they can do. I think that’s a big reason why I love holiday baking. I get to abuse things like cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice, and no one gives me any lip about it. And you know I’m a cinnamon freak so this time of year …
