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.
Oreo cookie balls or truffles are a simple concept but the results are pure decadence. Oreo cookies are finely crushed and mixed with cream cheese then rolled into bite size balls and dipped in chocolate. It’s a little bite of rich Oreo heaven.
It’s the holiday season and granola is a fun treat to make to share with your friends and family. It can be packaged in cute mason jars for gifting and the best part is that’s easy to make. This holiday granola is punched up with aromatic nutmeg and cinnamon which are are the perfect holiday spices. Pecans, cranberries, dates, maple syrup and white chocolate chips adds texture and a touch of sweetness to the granola. The scent of it baking just makes the house smell festive.
Pumpkin is synonymous with the fall season. The warm orange hue combined with aromatic spices make pumpkin dishes comforting during this time of year. These pumpkin bars are moist, fluffy and not too sweet. It’s topped with cream cheese frosting which adds just the right amount of richness to this simple but very satisfying dessert.
Grilled pound cake with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream and a generous serving of fresh strawberries and blueberries is the perfect no fuss dessert. Lightly grilling the pound cake makes the cake more aromatic and brings out the richness of the cake. The warm cake is then topped with a scoop of sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream and then covered with beautiful fresh strawberries and blueberries.
