These Oatmeal Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies are a quandary for me. I dreamt up the recipe one day and decided to just bake it up without looking at any other recipes in books or online. Once I’d made the dough, which I felt was pretty standard in texture and tasted good too (yes, I taste […]

Across Northern New Jersey today, students head back to school. I’ve been more aware of this than ever, imagining the first day of school for my own little guy. But also, my niece, Ava, headed to kindergarten last week. No, I’m not her mama, but thinking about it certainly was bittersweet for her auntie too. […]

Do you ever look through old recipe books and find a recipe that truly surprises you? That’s this recipe. Lemon Drop Cookies aren’t a reference to the cocktail, not at all. They’re named after that old-as-the-hills hard candy from Brachs that we all know and love. When I was a kid, cough and throat drops […]

Somewhere along the way, chocolate dipped strawberries became synonymous with Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure when it happened, but they 100% equal romance. Just ask us – our groom’s cake at our wedding featured a sheet cake decorated to look like a tuxedo, surrounded by two dozen smartly dressed matching tuxedo’ed strawberries around the edge. […]

Let’s get one last Christmas cookie recipe in under the wire, okay? I’ve been baking up a storm for weeks, and these are probably my favorite out of the bunch. You’ll read the recipe and think, “Flatten with a spatula, Amber?”, but that’s really how I achieved that perfect chewy texture. I don’t claim to […]

When I was little, my favorite kind of cookie to get from the bakery or coffee shop was always one with a chocolate base. We never made that kind at home, and basically, they seemed like magical inside-out cookies to my kidlet brain. It might be 30 years later, but for me, the magic of […]

The idea that it’s December 2nd astounds me. It probably shouldn’t. We’re a family that puts our tree up the day after Thanksgiving (more for the convenience of a 4 day weekend and having extra hands around, but still), and the Christmas decorations have been decking these halls for a solid week. But when I […]
