A Riff on FoodBabe’s Almond Butter Brownies

I’m still here and still working on my semi-paleo pursuit.  I successfully navigated a trip last week to PDX to see Francine and remained a faithful GF.  I tend to gravitate toward Vani Hari’s FoodBabe blog for all things natural, so I knew she’d have some gluten-free desserts.  It’s hard when you want a nibble […]

Chocolate Cake with Brown Sugar Buttercream

There’s no story behind this one – I needed a dessert for a holiday get together and while tearing through the Cooking Light from November, I saw a Chocolate-Orange Layer Cake.  I’m not a fan of that combination, and having seen a dessert with brown sugar buttercream on a restaurant menu recently, I decided to […]

German “Sweet” Chocolate Cake

Okay, it was Christmas, and my dad showed up at my door for our first big holiday without mom – what was the point in making the journey to his house where the trappings and decorations of the holidays aren’t?  I had the tree, the fireplace, the food, the gifts–he had nothing.  When he arrived, […]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with Coconut

This is another standby cookie recipe that comes from my mother’s box.  It came from the back of a bag of M&M’s baking bits, which are included in the original recipe, but I don’t like those very much.  I prefer regular semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Coworkers beat my door down for these cookies. The recipe calls […]

Chocolate Graham Cracker Cookies

One of my most outstanding memories of them involves my mother running after the motorcoach bus with her burnt orange Tupperware ™ container-circa 1995-as she’d forgotten to pack them in my luggage for a week-long trip through the mountains of North Carolina with a school group.
