Secret Recipe Club: Crunchy Chocolate Squares

April 23, 2012

For my second month in Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog Yumsilicious Bakes.  With an ample amount of pink in her blog design, Avanika is a girl after my own heart.  Her blog is full of sweet treats like Chocolate Overdose Cake and Snickerdoodles. As I was pursuing her blog it happened to […]

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 […]

Candy Cane Biscotti

December 15, 2011

For a long time I hated peppermint.  It makes me feel like a bit of a scrooge to say so this time of year given the iconic nature of candy canes and my especially unabashed love of Christmas.  As a kid I’d never turn down cherry flavored candy canes, but the mint ones, for me, […]

Candy Cane Blossoms for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

December 12, 2011

The sugar high continues here on The Pink Apron with the reveal of our recipes for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  I know I thoroughly enjoyed participating because I definitely enjoy baking for others much more than for myself and I also really, really enjoy receiving packages.  Getting my boxes reminded me very much […]

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 […]

Chocolate-Cherry Cookie Dough Truffles

September 20, 2011

I’ve been having to make a conscious effort not to wish the rest of summer away. According to my calendar it is not officially autumn until Friday even though for all intents and purposes it feels like fall already and mentally I’m already there. Once the high school around the corner from where I live […]

Whopper Lover’s Crispy Treats

September 14, 2011

Could it be? Am I actually developing a sweet tooth. I’m not sure what’s gotten into me, but I think it has something to do with the Whopper Blondies I made earlier this month.  They rekindled my love affair with a candy from my childhood that I didn’t even realize I missed. Since then I’ve […]

Whopper Blondies

September 1, 2011

Inevitably when August is over and September rolls in I’ve had my fill of summer. I’m ready to say goodbye to mosquito bites and humidity and say hello to apple picking, crisp evenings, and of course, baking projects.  I know I should stay in the moment, embracing summer rather than wishing it away, but fall […]

Brownie Cookies

August 1, 2011

Those who know me (and blog readers, I count you in that group) are well aware of the fact that I lack the stereotypical female sweet tooth. If you’re longing for someone who will split your cheesecake with you or persuade you to order the slice of apple pie, I’m probably not your girl. Generally […]
