Serious Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

This is a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, I guess, but it’s a really fancy recipe and takes a lot of time to do. You have to brown a bunch of butter, and toast a bunch of walnuts, and refrigerate the dough, and blah blah blah. But it’s all worth it, though, because these cookies […]

Banana Bread with Streusel Topping

The recipe is an amalgamation of two recipes. The banana bread recipe comes from here at Recipe Zaar. It uses sour cream. I already had another banana bread recipe, but I wanted to try something new. I adapted the recipe a bit to include chocolate chips. And because there were a lot of nuts in […]

Soft and Chewy Oreo Cookie Cookies

A long time ago I came across this Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookie Recipe at Two Peas and Their Pod. The recipe was good, but it was mostly a chocolate chip cookie with a few chunks of Oreos in each cookie (which, indeed, is a perfectly fine idea for a cookie). But I wanted an entire […]

Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies (thin and buttery)

It took me a surprisingly long time to find an oatmeal cookie recipe that I wanted to try (about 10 minutes, which is practically forever if we’re talking about “Google time”). I just wanted plain, thin, and buttery oatmeal cookies. I finally adapted a Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe from All Recipes, and in […]

Simple Blondies

I mentioned in my Simple Brownies post that I was more of a blondie man than a brownie man. Thus, a blondie recipe. This blondie recipe is simple and pretty much impossible to screw up. I don’t really try other blondie recipes (much), because this is all you need. It’s from Smitten Kitchen‘s blondies. If […]

Simple Brownies

I am more of a blondie man than a brownie man, myself, but my girlfriend likes brownies. So here are some brownies. I got this brownie recipe from Cookie Madness. My criteria when searching for this recipe was that it had to use an 8×8 or 9×9 pan, it had to be relatively simple or […]

Banana Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips

I still haven’t discovered anything worth putting on a good banana bread. Butter, peanut butter, Nutella–all of these fail to improve upon that which is perfect. Although I have found that Banana Bread is a good bread for French Toast, even if it is a quick bread without all that fancy yeast. I’ve seen others […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s the original recipe from Recipe Zaar, which is apparently taken from the Toronto Star, and they apparently got it from… Barbara Bush. Say what you will about the 43rd president of the United States–his mom makes a pretty darn good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. To the recipe I added ground up white chocolate (using […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies (using cream of tartar)

I got this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from a blog called A Pookie Pantry. It appears to be this AllRecipes version, but with the addition of cream of tartar to the cookies. I bought the cream of tartar for like three bucks then realized that I only needed about 1/4 teaspoon AND the original recipe […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookie Mix Cookies

The title of this post is the hardest thing about making these cookies. The recipe is easy because there is very little measuring. I basically played with the measurements of the ingredients, and added coconut and more chocolate chips. I increased the butter a bit too, to help with the added volume. The original recipe […]
