Top it with ice cream for a homemade version of the pizookie! It’s almost the Oscars! How many of the movies have you guys seen? I have seen exactly zero of the movies up for Best Picture, and I think Gone Girl (which was sooo good!) is the only thing I’ve seen from the other nominated movies.

Clearly…I’m not much of a movie watcher. I get way too distracted to sit and watch a movie for as long as it takes, so I’m more of a TV show and YouTube kind of girl, but I do love watching awards shows! It’s so fun to curl up on the couch and watch the red carpet, admire and judge all the different outfits, and see what inevitable dramatic thing happens. What’s your favorite thing about the Oscars? I have some friends who make it a personal mission to see all of the Best Picture nominees before the show so they can make their best predictions. [Read more…]

These cookies. These big, soft, chewy, super flavorful ginger cookies, that are stuffed with cookie butter and then rolled in sugar before being baked. Let’s talk about them for a bit.

I first made these before Christmas to give out in cookie-filled gift boxes to my friends. I posted a picture on Instagram, adoration ensued, and before I knew it, the cookies were out the door, with not one photo snapped of them besides the Instagram pics. Oops.

But really…that just meant I had an excuse to make these again. How could I not want to? Look at the dripping cookie butter!

Which in my baking-centric head, means bring on the peppermint, gingerbread, and too many cookies for anyone to reasonably eat.

…seriously though, how did we get here already?! It’s almost CHRISTMAS! And HANNUKAH! I’m a lucky kid who grew up celebrating both, one with each side of the family. I have amazing, special traditions I associate with each, and one of the things I love most about this time of year is getting to spend time with my family. [Read more…]

Cranberries are a symbol of winter. The festive, cheery red color, the sweet sauce (hopefully homemade) that gets slathered all over your Thanksgiving dinner, and the piles of bags of cranberries that you see placed at the front of the produce section of the market, basking in their 15 minutes of fame, until Christmas passes and they’re replaced.

And this year, prepare for cranberry overload, because I’ve been having too much fun playing with cranberries in the kitchen! I’ve always adored the tart, sweet bite that cranberries add to any dessert, and I’ve always fondly remembered how much I loved these browned butter cranberry lime muffins that I made way back when Bakerita was only a few months old. The tartness of cranberries adds a flavor to dessert that I find absolutely enticing, and if you’ve never tried it, well…you’re in for a major treat. [Read more…]

This Salted Caramel Filled Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie is gooey, crunchy, and flowing with salted caramel! This is one treat best served with ice cream and friends.When I posted my browned butter sage skillet cornbread a little while back, I mentioned how freakin’ excited I was to make skillet cookies and hinted that some would be coming. A lot of you got excited about that…well, the time has come. And ohmygoodness there is definitely reason to be excited.

This cookie is NO joke. I made it in a 6-inch pan. That’s relatively small, but 6 starving girls took on this cookie and we couldn’t finish it (there was valiant effort though). It’s soo rich, chocolatey, sweet, crunchy, gooey, and FILLED with salted caramel. As in, you dip you spoon in and caramel lava flows out of the cookie. It’s unreal. It’s something you need to experience with like, 8 of your closest friends. [Read more…]

Of course, after a few weeks of watching her eat them, I decided I needed to recreate them. [Read more…]

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: white chocolate is soo underrated. Okay – maybe some people don’t think that it’s “real” chocolate (with cocoa powder & all that dark chocolate-y stuff), but it’s still amazingly delicious, so why the heck does it matter?!

I’m pro white chocolate all the way, so I’m on a mission to provide you all with recipes that let white chocolate shine. Paired with pistachios in cookie dough that’s all jazzed up with brown butter? It’s definitely shining. [Read more…]
