Amaretti Torta

This dessert (recipe here) was simple and tasty. VERY sweet, but good. Not something that I’m likely to CRAVE but would be fun for a potluck or to cap off an Italian dinner with friends.

Peanut Butter-Caramel Pound Cake

This wasn’t evil enough, on its own, so I decided to serve it with a little ice cream on the side. Quite rich and buttery and thoroughly indulgent. This recipe (here) is another winner from Giada.

White Chocolate Cake

I made this AMAZING (recipe here) cake for my little brother’s birthday last year (he’s a big white chocolate fan) and it was SO good. I’ll definitely be making this again. We have a sweet exchange student living with us now who also loves white chocolate, so I need to make this for her.

Roasted Pears with Cardamom Granola and Vanilla Ice Cream

This dessert (recipe here) is SO easy and simple, but so delicious. I’ve made these before, and they’ve always been a hit. There is a typo in the recipe and the butter isn’t included, but you can figure it out, if you read carefully. Use about 1/4 cup of the granola/butter mixture, loosely packed, per […]

Thick and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These bars (recipe here) are satisfying and delicious. Perfect when it’s your turn to bring snacks for the team/cast/office/troop or whatever group your family participates in… Chewy, buttery and packed with protein for a “keep you going until dinner” kind of snack. And these are ridiculously quick and easy, too.

Peanut-Pecan Butter and Oatmeal Cookies

http://m.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Peanut-Pecan-Butter-and-Oatmeal-Cookies-368298 These cookies are so delicious. They’re crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. They are flavorful and are arguably even “healthy,” at least as compared to other cookies, due to the protein in the nut butters and fiber in the oatmeals. They are our new favorite and are even easy to make, […]

Chocolate-Chip Walnut Biscotti

Recipe here.  Obviously, I’m a little obsessed with biscotti lately.  I’ve really enjoyed learning how to make these and am experimenting with as many new recipes as possible.  These are absolutely divine.  Super rich and very flavorful.  I use a small offset spatula to spread the melted chocolate on, rather than dipping, as I find […]

Almond & Lemon Biscotti Dipped in White Chocolate

Recipe here.  These are very yummy, but VERY crunchy. Beware if you have dental issues – LOL. They are delicious, however, if dunked in a cup of espresso or hot tea. Or you could even crumble them over ice cream!

Pistachio-Orange Biscotti

Biscotti on my great-aunt Laddye Lee’s vintage china plate. This recipe (scroll down) from our local newspaper is a favorite of all four of us. The dough comes together quickly (zesting the orange is the most time-consuming part) and unlike most cookies, there’s really no rolling, cutting, dropping or really even forming of the dough […]
