Piña Colada Blondies

FACT #1. I don’t own a ruler. I haven’t since 8th grade geometry. This means, that my blondies will never be perfectly sectioned into 2-inch squares. My photos will always feel just sliiiiightly off-kilter. But really, even if I did own a ruler I likely...

No-Bake Brownies

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dreamed about sharing the perfect brownie recipe on this blog. I love brownies. We love brownies. Who doesn’t love brownies? Dibs on the corner slice, don’teventhinkaboutit. But, really. A slightly crisp, crackly exterior, encasing a blissfully chewy and (if...

Salted Dulce De Leche Blondies

I had a bad blog day, and it's got me down. I've got hurt feelings. It doesn't happen very often, but once in a while I get a negative comment on one of my recipes. Most often it's because I've failed to proofread a recipe and...

Ooey Gooey Kit Kat Caramel Brownies

I went a little over the top with these brownies. Unadulterated, this recipe is indulgent. Add Kit Kat Bars and caramel, and it's bordering on morally reprehensible. But you know what? Bring on the confessional, my friends. These Ooey Gooey Kit Kat Caramel Brownies are totally worth it....

Berry Cobbler Bars

Cobbler is one of my favorite summer desserts. Second only to maybe crumbles and of course, ice cream. But I have a bone to pick with cobbler. Our relationship is not a perfect one. Of course, I don't want to jump into this post complaining. I don't know if...

No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Corn Flake Bars

The other day, I received a recipe request from a  Miss Sheila Longbottom. Sheila not-so-subtly expressed her interest in these No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Corn Flake Bars. The body email went something like "I WANT THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!". Then she even told me that she LOVES me. A little...
