Milk & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last weekend, all of Massachusetts was snowed in due to the historic winter storm Nemo (2 feet of snow in some places!). In a way, it was nice to spend some time at home with your roommates and watch movies, play games, cook, and bake (my favorite hobby!). My sister and I made classic milk & white chocolate chip cookies.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 Cup white chocolate chips

S’mores Cookies

With school already in session, halloween candy stocked on the shelves, and cooler mornings and nights creeping in, it sure feels like summer is coming to an end. This past Labor Day weekend, we had a cookout, which will probably be the last one for the year (at least at my house, that is). No more cookouts means no more toasting marshmallows over the grill to make s’mores treats. Of course, there’s always the microwave, but it’s never the same.
For those not familiar with what a s’mores concoction is: it’s a traditional snack/dessert (typically served at a cookout or campfire) that …

I had everything but the chocolate chips which my niece would bring so I was all set. I took out the ingredients that needed to be at room temperature and by …


More Pancakes, Please!

chocolate chip pancakes from recipegirl.com
Chocolate chip pancakes were always my breakfast of choice when I was a kid. The thought of light and fluffy pancakes with sweet chocolate and warm syrup makes my mouth water. Any flavor pancakes, from banana to blueberry to lemon-ricotta, are a delicious breakfast treat.
But when I eventually roll out of bed on Saturday morning, pancakes often seem like a hassle to prepare. So instead of letting the laziness take over and reaching for the cereal box, this little gadget will solve any pancake problems you might have.

Ice cream cookie sandwiches were always one of my favorite treats from the ice cream truck. The Cuisipro Mini …


Everything Bars

This is my first actual baking post in a while. If you recall my last few posts have been either purely informational or rather simple and straight forward, I haven’t had a whole lot of time on my hands. However this week as I finally got settled back into my weekly Boston schedule I managed to set aside an afternoon devoted to baking decadence. Since I haven’t baked in a while I had a hard time deciding what to make, I had stacks of recipes I wanted to try but couldn’t figure out which one to choose. Did I want …

Giant Chocolate-Chip Scone Simple to Make and Hard to Stop Eating!

I have never made scones before but knowing I would need something for breakfast for some Thanksgiving guests, I decided to try Lisa Yockelson’s Giant Chocolate-Chip Scone as a sweet way to start the day.  Lisa’s recipes are always a favorite of mine and I have never had a bad recipe from Lisa’s vast collection of recipes through the years. This recipe was no different.  It is a make again recipe which I hope to make again soon!
Why make a scone now for the first time? The recipe seemed simple! I was not in the mood for a complicated recipe.
