Flourless Paleo Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Guys, I have a chocolate cookie winner here. The other day I said that I won’t get suckered into decorating for Christmas yet.  Although I still love ya if you are already decorating (cough, cough, mom 😉 ).  I always decorate the weekend right after Thanksgiving day and that’s still the plan this year.  I’m having friends over tomorrow and the table is decorated with pine cones, miniature pumpkins, candles, and flowers.  So I’m definitely still embracing all things related to Fall. However, I will admit that I’m already watching Christmas movies.  The Hallmark Channel started their Countdown to Christmas the weekend before Halloween …

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie (Redux)

I originally posted this recipe in August 2013 but I’m posting it again. These cookies are amazing.  They are the kind of cookie that people ask you to make over and over again, and I have.  Unfortunately, the original recipe has gotten a bad rap and I’m hoping to fix that here.  I love this recipe so much that it’s worth trying again. The secret of success for this recipe is a very easy.  Measure the flour correctly.  Yup, that’s it, folks.  To measure flour correctly, use a spoon to loosely pile the flour into a measuring cup and then level it off with a butter knife. …

Dark Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies

Cookies are always a good idea.  I’m sure I’ve said that a bazillion times, but it’s true. A few weeks ago we went to Lake George, NY with my entire family.  It’s an annual family tradition.  Everyone asks us to bring cookies so that’s become part of the annual tradition.  My husband made chocolate macadamia white chip cookies and these dark chocolate chip nut cookies. We’ve made chocolate chip cookies many times for Lake George.  Although last year we forgot them at home (and my family still brings that up today).  Anyway, since the chocolate chip cookies are always a HUGE hit my husband wanted to make …

Chocolate Macadamia White Chip Cookies

When your husband volunteers to bake cookies you take him up on the offer. I love making cookies and it’s probably my favorite food to make.  I mean it’s cookies, hello?  Anyway, I didn’t mind at all when my husband said he’d like to whip up a batch (or two, hint hint).  If you’re familiar with my blog then you know that he’s not a stranger to the kitchen.  His specialty is making bread.  He’s made every yeast bread recipe on Tina’s Chic Corner (i.e. Dave’s Bread Corner).  That’s convenient since he enjoys making it and I’m afraid to. Forgive me for there being …

S’more Cookie Bars

What’s the first dessert that comes to mind when you think of summer?  For me, it’s a s’more. Le’ts address the elephant in the room first.  For all my life I’ve called it a s’mores.  To be clear I thought it was like deer or moose.  I thought s’mores was both singular and plural.  Wikipedia has now corrected me.  It’s a s’more (no “s” at the end).  I learn something new everyday.  😉  If you’re my husband (the Pixar fan) then you may also refer to them as schmoes. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled program.  Desserts.  Summer desserts.  How …
