If you’re looking for a chocolate dessert that that will make you swoon then look no further. This wonderful cake is smooth and rich, and perfect for entertaining (Christmas, Valentines, bridal showers, dinner parties, etc.)! While easy to make, the cake does require time in the fridge (about 7 hours) so plan accordingly. Before serving the cake, drizzle each plate […]

Caramel Oatmeal Chewies

December 17, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Caramel Oatmeal Chewies | Filed in Baking, Chocolate, Christmas, Cookies & Bars, Dessert, Holidays, Recipes

  I’m a big fan of just about any kind of caramel and chocolate treat. These gooey bar cookies are definitely a winner: chocolate chips, crunchy pecans and a rich caramel drizzle layered between an oatmeal cookie base and crumble topping. They are rich, delicious and easy to make. I always use Mrs. Richardson’s brand Butterscotch […]

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

August 28, 2012 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Baking, Cakes, Chocolate, Comfort Food, Recipes

I love secret ingredient recipes, and you’d never know there was shredded zucchini hiding inside this moist, chocolatey cake. Even my Picky Eater who normally runs away from zucchini (and many other “green” things) commented that he liked it. The cake is great on it’s own or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. While […]

  With Valentine’s Day just days away, I thought I’d post one of my favorite chocolate desserts: Bourbon Chocolate Cake. This fantastic dessert is dense, rich and worth every luscious bite! Even if you don’t enjoy sipping the barrel-aged spirit on it’s own, I’m confident you’ll love this cake. The bourbon (I prefer Jim Beam for this […]

Chocolate Stout Cake

March 15, 2011 by andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in Baking, Cakes, Chocolate, Dessert, Holidays, Recipes

This Chocolate Stout Cake is moist, rich and very chocolatey. Need I say more? For some reason, some of the cake stuck to the pan when I unmolded it (probably user error because that didn’t happen last time I made it). Husband, however, had a cunning plan. He joked that I should spackle it together. […]

Grand Central Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

March 4, 2011 by andrea | 11 Comments | Filed in Baking, Chocolate, Comfort Food, Cookies & Bars, Dessert, Kid-friendly, Quick Cooking, Recipes

One of my weaknesses is a good, chewy chocolate chip cookie. It’s like my kryptonite. I’m not proud of it, but I’m pretty much defenseless around them, which is why I don’t make chocolate chip cookies very often. Recently, though, I was thumbing through the Grand Central Baking Book (from the popular Grand Central Bakery located […]

Bittersweet Chocolate Pots de Crème

February 7, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Chocolate, Dessert, Quick Cooking, Recipes

Rich and deliciously smooth, even the busiest of cooks has time to make this quick dessert. Pots de crème (prounounced poh-duh-KREHM), is French for “pot of cream”. Unlike traditional recipes for pots de crème which require baking in a water bath, this simplified version cuts out that step. The pudding cooks quickly then needs to chill for an […]
