Chewy Banana Toblerone Cookies

April 11, 2012

Two months ago when I set out to find my perfect chewy banana cookie recipe I never stopped tinkering.  The version I came up with then got good reviews from family and friends and I liked the flavor and texture.  They were no muffin tops in disguise.  No, they were chewy and indulgent tasting, exactly […]

Chewy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

January 20, 2012

For most of the winter thus far here in Chicago temperatures have been balmy and mild.  Christmas came and went with barely so much as a dusting of snow.  Brown Christmas indeed.  I was starting to naively believe that we’d hit spring by February.  But then last week we finally got a little over two […]

Banana Split Cookies

November 23, 2011

I love taking something that’s already good and making it better.  There is something satisfying, for me, about looking at recipes as if they are always in beta, with things that can be tweaked or improved.  I’m notorious for rarely making a recipe the same way twice so I always feel like I’m experimenting and […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Drop Cookies

October 31, 2011

I must admit that I am one of those girls who takes quite awhile to deem a new place ‘home.’ I’ve been in my new apartment a month now. My boxes are almost entirely unpacked, the pictures hung, and the mail forwarded. Yet, it still feels a bit odd. I occasionally still get off the […]

Banana Tea Cake & Thoughts on Cooking Without Recipes

March 28, 2011

“How can I learn to cook without recipes?”  It’s a question that I get a lot once friends or colleagues find out that I have a food blog.  It’s clear that the recession has spurred a lot of home cooking and once people become comfortable with their repetoire of recipes they are often eager to […]

Banana Split Biscotti

March 17, 2011

It was the summer of 1998. Bill Clinton was in the White House in the midst of his now notorious scandal, Apple had just released its original “Bondi Blue” iMac G3 and as for me, I was an awkward 15-year-old. That summer brought a much needed intermission from my life as student at a Catholic high school. […]

A Tale of Two Biscotti Recipes

July 26, 2010

When it comes to the world of desserts, biscotti can often get overlooked.  At coffee shops they are often relegated to a big glass jar, rather than sharing center stage in the dessert case with over-sized cookies and fudgy brownies.  I will admit for a long time I didn’t pay them much attention either.  Occasionally […]
