These simple, one bowl dark chocolate sugar cookies are a simple twist on the classic confection that come together quickly and offer a satisfying double hit for either a chocolate or a cookie craving.
I was on the hunt for a cookie recipe to bake for a neighborhood block party. I wanted something easy and quick but offered something a little unique. Something that went beyond the usual chocolate chip contribution.
New England is know for many different foods: clam chowder, lobster rolls, baked beans, cream pie, but maybe not anadama bread. I grew up, and still live here, and I had never heard about, or tasted, this regional lost classic.
Anadama bread deserves a wider audience. While it resembles an Irish brown bread on the surface, the similarities stop there. Anadama bread’s defining characteristics are the use of molasses and cornmeal, household staples in the region at the start of the 20th century. Those two ingredients, combined with melted butter in the dough, give the finished bread a wonderful mix of sweet and nutty flavors with a sturdy, yet fluffy interior.
Did you go a little overboard at the orchard? Is your fridge full of fall apples? This apple walnut date quick bread is simple and easy to make.
It comes together in about 15 minutes and will make your house smell like a late October afternoon hay ride. It might not even last as long as a typical hay ride. It’s that good.
I’m ten years late, but I have a new favorite obsession: the Yonanna soft serve dessert maker and creamy banana ice cream.
It’s a toss up between a warm chocolate chip cookie and a bowl of ice cream as my favorite dessert. But if our current fitness challenge provides any evidence, I might be leaning toward ice cream. But maybe that’s just because it’s the summer. But I wouldn’t be alone in loving ice cream. The average American eats almost five gallons a year! That’s…a lot of heavy cream.
Enter the Yonanna soft serve dessert maker to save me from myself.
If you’ve participated in a spring or early summer CSA recently, you’ve likely gotten some early season (or late season) greens that look vaguely like bok choy. Welcome to the world of tatsoi. What is tatsoi? It’s a hearty Asian green that is quick and easy to use in a variety of dishes.
Both girls, but especially Ally, have a sweet tooth and I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to satisfy that need in a more healthy but still satisfying and tasty way. This easy 3-ingredient blender ice cream hits the mark. It’s simple, uses natural ingredients, isn’t full of sugar or workarounds, but still tastes great. In short, it still tastes like dessert.
There are many different kinds of pizza. Different doughs. Different toppings. But they are always squares or circles, right? What about rectangles? Narrow ones. I’ve been baking long, skinny Sicilian pies with Lloyd long pizza pans now since the end of January and my only regret is that I didn’t order more.
