Macadamia Nut and White Chocolate Blondie Bars

New year, new color! Instead of brownies, let’s bake up some blondies today. I am one lucky gal, I must say. I received the Beekman Heirloom Dessert Cookbook for Christmas and could hardly wait to dig into it and get it allllll covered in flour and sugar and vanilla. The first recipe I took a shot at is the “Blondies… Read more →

Skillet Green Chili Cornbread

I will admit, I have been quite distant lately. Between traveling, camping and working, I have not had the pleasure of developing recipes and getting creative with my photography. Alas, I am back.

Deliciously Dark Brownies

Brownies are one of those baked goods that’s tricky because I like to be a “scratch” baker, yet I am often underwhelmed by the scratch brownies that I, as well as other people make.
