Caramel apple oatmeal cookies

Whenever I'm at the grocery store, I like to peruse the baking aisle. Even if I'm not really planning on making anything, I like to dream about cookies and cakes and all things delicious.

Salted caramel brownies

OK, Cooking Light. I like your magazine. I do. Every month I cook several recipes found in your pages. But sometimes I have to question the "light" part.

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, …

Caramelized banana pancakes

Caramelized banana pancakes!

About a month ago, I went down to L.A. with a couple of friends for my birthday. We did a little sightseeing, a little shopping, a little hiking and a lot of eating. One of the awesomely delicious places at which we dined was The Griddle Cafe. Ever heard of it? I hadn’t either, but …

Caramel croissant bread pudding

Caramel croissant bread pudding! (With a little vanilla ice cream on the side.)

It’s National Croissant Day! Remember that day I made croissant French toast with caramel apples? Well, I had a couple leftover croissants, so I went and made another croissant-centric dish: caramel croissant bread pudding. Bread pudding is yet another thing that I’d never eaten before, but Larissa’s pumpkin bread pudding looked tasty, so I figured …

Caramel candy brownies

IMG_1868

Brownies may be my favorite dessert. It’s them or chocolate chip cookies, depending on the day. Usually my brownies come from a boxed mix made by Ghirardelli or Hershey’s. But because this is a recipe blog, I decided to try making from scratch. They’re so easy anyway; the box really just saves you from mixing …
