best black and white cookie recipe

Look to the cookie! It’s impossible to think of these classic New York cookies without thinking of the Seinfeld episode where he and Elaine are at a bakery in Manhattan. Jerry uses the cookie to express how easy it is for all of us to live side by side, despite our differences. I’m not sure […]

I am happy to report that we have moved a safe distance from the 100˚ mark in Dallas. It’s still hot, but not the kind that makes you break into a sweat if you dare go out to check the mail. Over the coming weeks we will get our VERY short autumn and then straight […]

Treat of the Week: Grasshopper Pie Dessert Cups

Happy Pie (pi or 3.14) Day! I hope your day is filled with all sorts of pie, sweet and savory. Start the day with a quiche florentine, maybe have a pulled pork empanada for lunch, pot pie for dinner, and finish it all off with a mile-high lemon meringue. That’s just my recommendation. Tweak it […]

Treat of the Week: Chocolate Banana Pudding

chocolate banana pudding recipe

Banana pudding is one of my favorite desserts. For me, comfort food usually comes in a savory form. This is about as close to sweet comfort food as you can get. This week we decided to try something new. Our banana pudding is generally made with vanilla wafers, but we switched it up with some ChewySoft Chocolate Fudge Cookies instead. The result was amazing.  We […]

Treat of the Week: Carrot Cake Cookies

As holidays go, Easter sort of gets the short end of the stick. It has all of the makings of a great holiday, but never quite the same oomph. There is candy, a fun, lovable character, and customs and traditions.
