Snickerdoodle Blondies

You know that scene in Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap all over the chocolate cake so she won’t eat it?  I made the mistake of not sending these to work with my husband and I actually had to DO this with these snickerdoodle blondies.  They were THAT good. I’d… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Blondies

Easter Candy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars

I looooove Easter.  I relish being the Easter Bunny, and I have so much fun each year putting together my kids’ baskets and leaving powder bunny footprints through the living room.  I love the egg hunts and the egg dyeing and the brunch, and, the candy. Easter is officially about a month away and the… Continue reading Easter Candy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars

So, because my husband reads this blog, I’m not going to post how much money I’ve spent on Cranberry Bliss Bars in my lifetime, but it’s a lot.  Would you believe I had never attempted to make them before? Big mistake. Huge. Back in the day, what kept me from trying them was that all… Continue reading Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars

Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

My almost two year old daughter Phoebe is quite a handful.  She’s really giving me a run for my money in a way that her two older siblings did not.  She has a very mischievous, get-into-absolutely-everything, help-myself-to-anything-in-the-pantry, try-to-run-into-traffic, jump-off-all-the-high-things, streak that I am quite certain comes from my Dad’s side of the family and that… Continue reading Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

Christmas Crack

I make a lot of goodies, so it’s hard for me to choose a favorite, but I’m going to call it now.  After a decade of making it for my neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family, including FOUR pans of it just this week, I think I can safely say that it is the best thing… Continue reading Christmas Crack
