Browned Butter and Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Browned Butter Bacon and chocolate chip cookies

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.

You Scream! I Scream! We all Scream for Ice Cream Cake!

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

Seriously Ridiculously Yummy Cookies.

IMG_20150605_194625

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

Chocolate Chip Cookies (with or without Caramel in the middle)

Chocolate Chip CookiesSo I got into my head re: chocolate chip cookies with caramel in them and this is what happened.

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

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

Chocolate Banana Brownies

Chocolate Banana Brownies I swear to you, these are delicious.

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
