Browned Butter and Bacon plus delicious chocolatey goodness….
I found under the “On his day” thingy on Facebook, a recipe I posted several years ago for bacon and chocolate chip cookies… so I decided to try it… however, instead of following the recipe I had found, I modified my own cookie recipe and this is what I got… which I have been told is delicious.

I’ve gotten a little out of control with the ice cream cakes.
Here is how it started…
Katy’s boyfriend Brando was having a birthday.. Katy decided to have a party for him as a result.. and I said “oh, I will make a cake”. I asked what kind he wanted and Brando said “ICE CREAM CAKE!!” (yes… he yelled). Continue reading
For some bizarre reason I feel compelled to perfect a cookie recipe. The bizarre part is that I don’t really eat cookies very often (except Ginger Snaps.. see that post for details…)
Long story short, I like baking stuff and taking it to my friends (this is how I buy all your love, obviously…) And cookies are delicious. Seriously delicious. Continue reading
I made the cookies using shortening and margarine and butter. Because I was filling the cookies with caramel, I used shortening as it has a higher melting point so I thought it would hold the caramel better. Cookies were good, however…. RE-made with butter and they are much better (because I love butter.) Use whichever suits you! I’ve tweaked the recipe… this is the best version yet. Continue reading
So I decided to make some cookies. For some reason I became somewhat obsessed with putting caramel into cookies and wanted to try some stuff… and… ended up making a boatload of cookies.
These ones are chocolate chocolate chip with caramel inside and sea salt. I made these using “golden shortening”… in the States they call it butter flavoured, but in Canada you can’t say that. Blah blah blah. Continue reading
One of the things I’m doing with my baking is remaking recipes (sometimes, not all) to be vegetarian or vegan and many of the desserts I’ve modified to be low sugar.
I have a vegetarian niece, a vegan sister, a lactose intolerant daughter and a boyfriend with diabetes. So, in some recipes I’ve offered modifications. THIS is the delicious result of modifications… and I must get them out of my house as soon as possible or I will eat them ALL. Continue reading
So the beautiful and talented Katy Warren is not a big cake fan. She likes pie. LOVES pie. For her birthday, I wasn’t sure what kind of pie to make… so I made two. Also, I use the word “so” a lot.
I wasn’t sure what kind to make.. her favourite is Raspberry Pie, but felt it was the wrong time of year to make it (her birthday is in February) hence I made two pies. Here’s number one…. Continue reading
He ordered a piece of a white chocolate cheesecake wrapped in phyllo, double baked and served with a berry sauce. And yes, it was very good. He asked me if I could replicate it. I responded that I could do better than that…. Continue reading
