Boston cream pie cupcakes

Is "Boston cream pie cupcakes" the most confusing name for a dessert ever, or what? Yeah, it totally makes no sense. But you know what's not confusing? How delicious these cupcakes are!

Junk food cookies

The other day I got a text from a friend who was eating lunch with another friend at The Neon Carrot. She sent me a photo of this crazy-looking cookie with, like, random foodstuffs sticking out from all angles. It was called the Junk Cookie. They asked that I recreate this cookie for this blog, …

Blueberry cheesecake French toast casserole

Hey, did you know May 26 was National Blueberry Cheesecake Day? I did, and that’s why I made this tasty blueberry cheesecake French toast casserole! OK, so I’m definitely using the term “cheesecake” loosely here. But you’ll forgive me when you taste it!

Oreo fudge brownies

A few weeks ago, I showed you guys a cookie stuffed inside a cookie. Today, how about a cookie stuffed inside a brownie? There's actually an entire layer of Oreo cookies in the middle of these brownies, an awesome surprise for any Oreo-lover (and who doesn't love Oreos?). That Oreo cookie layer, a smattering of …

Carrot cheesecake with lemon sour cream topping

I'd never really realized how much my family liked cheesecake until the year I unveiled a pumpkin cheesecake during our Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone liked it so much that I've been ordered to make that cheesecake for every Thanksgiving and Christmas since, and despite its now-ubiquitous holiday presence, there's rarely leftovers. So when I stumbled across …

Easy cinnamon croissants

Someday I'm going to make croissants from scratch, I promise. It's just that the croissant-making process sounds so complicated and time-consuming and, frankly, frightening. It's so much easier to buy them all baked and ready to eat, don't you think? This recipe for cinnamon croissants is sort of a compromise. The hard part — making …

S’mores-stuffed chocolate chip cookies

Have you ever seen a more delicious-looking cookie?! Me neither. And I've seen lots of cookies. My sister found this recipe on a blog she likes to read called Brown Eyed Baker. And she was really excited about it. I could tell she was really excited because she posted a link to this recipe on …

Mock apple pie with streusel and caramel

This was the best apple pie I've ever made.* And it wasn't even apple pie! Let me explain. You see, several months ago, my co-worker Joetopia was complaining about a recipe in Heloise's column, as he is wont to do. It was a recipe for a mock apple pie, which was made not with apples, …

Irish cream brownies

You know what we haven't made in a while? Brownies. Only joking! How could I forget last month, when we had brownies up the wazoo. Even so, how could I pass up an opportunity to make Irish cream brownies for St. Patrick's Day?

Mardi Gras king cake with cream cheese filling and lemon icing

A consequence of never having spent much time in the Southern U.S. is that I've missed out on delicious regional treats. Like king cake! Apparently king cake is a really big deal in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. But living here in California, I'd never seen or even heard of king cake until I was …
