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 …

Pumpkin French Toast

How would you like pumpkin pie for breakfast, without actually eating pie?  (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) My husband and I enjoyed some great meals while we were on vacation.  (The extra pounds that I’m carrying now are proof.)  After all, on vacation nothing has calories, right?  While staying at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, my husband ordered brioche french toast at the Aria Cafe and it was divine.  The food blogger in me and the bread maker in my husband immediately think that we to try to replicate this dish this back at home. As soon as we …

Challah Bread

Holla for Challah! Challah Bread is uh-mazing.  Let’s see…  It’s a bread, it’s a tad sweet, and it looks gorgeous.  Yeah, it’s just freaking amazing. I have to admit that my husband and I had ulterior motives for making Challah.  It’s a secret… until you see it Friday’s post.  Any guesses?  Until then, don’d mind me if I take a slice or two and smear some butter on it.  Mmm carbs.  Mmm butter.  Heaven. My husband has made a lovely 3 strand braid Cardamom Bread.  In fact, he’s made it more times than I can count.  Challah bread usually comes in …

Poach Fried Eggs

This is my husband’s magical way of making eggs so now I hand you over to “Dave’s Egg Corner”… This isn’t an especially magical technique if we’re being honest.  It’s barely even a “recipe” since you’re really just making eggs.  The thing is that like so many of my recipes this is a technique driven by simplicity. I don’t like trying to flip fried eggs over because about 50% of the time I end up breaking the yolks.  I don’t like making poached eggs because they tend to be watery and weird.  I don’t like how scrambled eggs require stirring …

Sticky Buns

The cinnamon roll vs sticky bun debate rages on… If you missed the Cinnamon Roll post and prefer your rolls of cinnamon to be simply glazed instead of sticky and gooey, then head on back to that post here.  I assure you that you will not be disappointed.  If you did catch it then you must have been anxiously awaiting these. Without further ado, I leave in you in goods with my husband… As a kid wandering the mall with my dad and brother we would often follow our noses to the T.J. Cinnamons that was somewhere off to the side …
