Delicate chocolate chip cookie butter cookies made with Trader Joes’ Speculoos Cookie Butter and laced with chocolate chips and coarse sea salt. If you haven’t had cookie butter you are missing out on something wonderfully decadent. Imagine spreading a layer of creamy spread made from gingerbread cookies and crushed biscuits onto a warm piece of toast. Actually, you don’t even need the toast it’s great straight out of the jar! The cookie butter has hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cardamom. It’s warm, cozy and very addicting.
This bacon chicken macaroni and cheese is so easy to make and is such a time saver. Rotisserie chicken and crispy apple wood bacon add so much favor to the mac and cheese. A few dashes of hot sauce and fresh tomatoes help balance the richness of the cheese and gives the dish a little kick and pop of freshness.
I made chocolate chip cookies numerous times during my pregnancy. It’s crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I like the use of coarse sea salt in the recipe, it gives a little bit of texture and is just enough savory to balance the sweetness. The brown sugar adds depth to the cookie that isn’t too sweet. You’ll have to try the recipe, you won’t be disappointed.
Thinly sliced Yukon Gold Potatoes are layered in a baking dish, sprinkled with salt, pepper, cheddar and jack cheese and then another layer of potatoes, seasonings and cheese. Heavy cream and butter is then poured on top of the potatoes and then baked. The potatoes are like a blank canvas, absorbing all the luscious creaminess from the cream and the butter and cheese adds a savory bite to the dish.
Guess what… Kitchen Runway turns two today! Which makes it a perfect occasion for some alcohol and chocolate cake! This chocolate Kahlua cake is incredibly easy to make and is always a hit at parties…it must be because of the Kahlua and vodka. It’s moist and not overly sweet and the aroma of Kahlua and chocolate is simply irresistible. I’ve added chocolate chips to the cake and a healthy helping of cream cheese frosting. It is a celebration after all!
