Dark Chocolate and Pecan Cookies

Winter is upon us, amigos. I woke up yesterday to the white crap falling from the sky and felt my soul cry a little. In my part of the world, we have two and a half seasons; four months of summer, one too-short month of fall, followed by seven months of winter. I don’t even […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Confession; when the gluten-free diet first hit, I thought it was a heaping pile of manure.

Moist. *cue gag reflex*) so it doesn’t dry out like many other loafs out there. The original recipe was by Kraft however over the […]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Filling

Pumpkin whoopie pies with brown butter cream cheese filling; do I have your attention yet? This weekend, we were invited to a Cajun cookout and I’d offered to bring dessert. Yes, I know; pumpkin whoopie pies aren’t exactly Cajun-inspired but these bad boys are delicious so does it really matter if they fit the theme? […]
