Coconut Macadamia Nut Bar Cookies

I just love bar cookies. They’re so easy! I came up with this new version to serve at my game night tonight. You guys get to see them before my friends even get to eat them! (But don’t worry, I had one for quality control and my parents conveniently swung by the minute they heard…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Peanut butter lovers, this one’s for you! This is a twist on my classic chocolate chip cookies, which are the best cookies ever (if you love soft cookies like me!).

Midnight Magic Sundae

This is officially my new favorite sundae! And that’s saying a lot because I’m a bit of a sundae snob. This recipe uses my incredible homemade vanilla ice cream, which is the creamiest, dreamiest ice cream you’ll ever have. You can of course use store bought ice cream if you prefer but it really is…

Dark Side Cookies

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes. I used to bake these all the time in college. I’m so glad I finally thought to blog about them! I’ve named these Dark Side Cookies because these are the deepest, darkest, chocolate-iest cookies! They taste downright sinful. These beauties are very soft; they don’t have…
