Cookie dough and Oreo Truffles

truffle1

I believe cookie dough makes a great treat. Don’t get me wrong. I love me some fresh out of the oven warm ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie goodness. Every now and then though, a spoon full of cookie dough is where it’s at. When I was little my mom would give us spoonfuls of the stuff as a treat (same woman who served us chocolate jimmy sandwiches too), and once in high school an entire roll of cookie dough was split into thirds and eaten as an afternoon snack – in one sitting. I know there’s raw egg in it and […]

Holiday Throwdown and Butterfinger Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

butterfinger_cookie6

Last night was my first ever holiday party. I didn’t take the time this summer to throw my normal pool party so I figured why not cram everyone into our house with not nearly enough chairs or space and just make things awkward for everyone. Cozy right? The guests were a mix of my customers, friends, family, co-workers, ex-coworkers and a random dude who was rooting for the wrong team based on his baseball cap. It was the widest group of dietary needs I have ever had to keep in mind as well but I think I succeeded in having […]

Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies

Two weeks ago, I scoffed at the ads for “last minute shoppers,” but here it is December 15th and I am feeling the holiday crunch. Its that time of year though. Toys are being purchased and Walmarts across the nation are picked barren of any cheap decorations. Ovens are heating up across the country to get the holiday goodies ready. Warm, delicious treats to be tested all month long to figure out which one is just right to put on the plate for Santa. And when your knee deep in the middle of it all – your father calls – […]

Hoisin Pork and Asian Slaw Egg Rolls

Sometimes it’s all about a good concept. I had seen several times before the idea of a BBQ egg roll and lately the idea of a hoisin pork had been running through my head. Hoisin pork teamed up with an Asian slaw. All wrapped up in an egg roll wrapper and fried. Yeah, that idea has been tempting my pallet for a few weeks on the to do list. Hoisin Pork Asian Slaw Egg Rolls A little mix of me and some Emeril, Guy, and google. Hoisin Pork Ingredients: For the Pork: 1/2 cup hoisin sauce 1/4 cup soy sauce […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

Handsome just found out that I often don’t taste my baked goods before offering them to others. This seemed to shock him. I kinda giggled at it. Yes, it’s basic kitchen knowledge to taste, taste, taste. But really, with baked goods, by the time the item is on the table, I’m done. I know I’m going to make a lot of people cringe, but I do often taste the batter. With most sweet desserts, if the batter doesn’t taste right – neither will the finished product. So, I’d say 99% of the time, I have a pretty good idea how […]
