Gingerbread French Toast

Posted on December 21, 2015

A perfect breakfast for Christmas morning! Homemade gingerbread cooked in the skillet makes a delicious holiday breakfast treat. It’s normal to have French toast as a mid-morning snack, right? Oh, that’s just me? Oops. I’d actually been wanting to make this Gingerbread French Toast for a while now. And luckily, thanks to recipe testing for…

Ginger Pecan Candy Crack

Posted on December 16, 2015

Crazy addicting Christmas candy in a very good way. This  sweet and salty “crack” is made with toasted pecans, ginger spiced caramel and dark chocolate. Last week my sister and fiancé had us over for a fun weeknight Chanukah dinner. Jess and Quoc made a delicious dinner that included perfectly crispy latkes, salmon with dill…

Gingerbread Loaf with Caramelized White Chocolate Ganache

Posted on December 14, 2015

This Christmas dessert is a lightened up gingerbread loaf topped with an indulgent caramelized white chocolate ganache. Something very major happened this weekend. I had an entire day (over six hours straight!) to myself. If you are wondering why this is such a big deal I must tell you, this is the longest period of…

Other title considerations: Brown Butter Gingersnap Crumble Ice Cream; Peach Cobbler Ice Cream with Gingersnap Crumbs; Gingersnap Crunch Ice Cream with Peach Filling; Peach Cobbler Ice Cream; Bourbon Peach Crumble Ice Cream with Gingersnap Crumbs. Decisions, decisions. It’s my birthday week which means that nothing but ice cream will do! I wanted to make one…

Chewy Milk Chocolate Ginger Cookies

Posted on November 20, 2014

Chewy ginger-flavored brown sugar cookies filled with milk chocolate chunks.  This is a great holiday cookie! I have a bit of a weakness for ginger cookies.  My dad loves gingersnaps, but unless they are super crunchy (ahem, teeth-breakingly so), he will probably tell you they are underbaked.  I, on the other hand, like crunchy, chewy,…

Brown Sugar Cupcakes with Cinnamon Ginger Buttercream and Ginger Cookie Pecan Brittle

Posted on August 26, 2012

Moist brown sugar cupcakes topped with a flavorful buttercream and surprise brittle topping. Sometimes it is easy to get in a rut. A cookie rut. An exercise rut. A wearing the same $12 gap t-shirt every day rut. We get a little comfortable with the usual. Cookies are easy and I’ve gotten great at them.…

Gingersnap Sandwich Cookies with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on December 19, 2011

Please don’t be mad at me. It’s just that I’ve had this recipe for weeks and have been holding it in the backlog so that I didn’t completely overload you with cookies.  Meanwhile, almost every person who has eaten one of these has asked me for the recipe.*  Biting into one of the gingersnap sandwich…

Whole Wheat Maple Walnut Spice Cookies

Posted on September 7, 2011

Along with pumpkin muffins the other night, I had these cookies going in and out of the oven.  I have to admit, I don’t usually like walnuts in my desserts (keep them away from my fudgey brownies, please), but these Whole Wheat Maple Walnut Spice Cookies just sounded so appealing. Maybe it is the fact…
