Peanut Butter and Apple Jam Thumbprint Cookies

Peanut Butter and Apple Jam Thumbprint Cookies

I’m starting to really dig into recipe development and try different exercises for coming up with original ideas. This is easier said than done because recipes are ALL OVER THE INTERNET. You get stuck on things you see all the time, things you really want […]

Mocha Peppermint Brownies

I made these mocha peppermint brownies twice in a week and gave away nearly all of both batches. I ate roughly 4 out of 32 of them. I gave some to my trainee, Ellie, some to Justin and a whole batch to a co-worker who had […]

Chewy Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies
