Michael asked for this by requesting a “pan of chocolate and other stuff type thing”. Somehow I interpreted that into a skillet cookie and that was exactly what he wanted. Being together for 6+ years will do that, I guess! Continue reading “Skillet Cookie”
I asked my parents what treats they’d like me to whip up one Friday, since I was coming home that weekend (I live about 3 hours away from them). They know better than to just say “whatever you make is fine” and gave me some perfect requests. “Something shortbread-ish or muffins” was Mom’s request and “something to go with Hawaiian coffee” was Dad’s request. I honestly love these kind of requests. They’re vague enough where I can play around in the kitchen a bit but specific enough to narrow my experiments. Mom and Dad eat pretty healthy and love homemade treats. We had all been to Maui in January, so these cookies were a hit!
I had never made anything red velvet-flavored before these cupcakes. It’s not a flavor that anyone in my family asks for, but my husband’s aunt and cousin love it, so I made these for them. Anything with cream cheese frosting is a winner, but the flavor of red velvet is still kind of a mystery to me. It’s like it’s in between chocolate and vanilla somehow.
My brother loves those Limited Edition Oreos. I love making cupcakes. Thus, I made him these last fall. They’re not overly sweet or rich, just tasty little peanut butter Oreo cupcakes! Continue reading “Reese’s Oreo Cupcakes”
My husband LOVES Heath Bars, so when I found this recipe in a book he was super excited. I made it again last night to make sure it would always turn out tasting like Heath. Cooking with sugar can be tricky, but this recipe is really easy!
