  1. Low Fat Turtle Cheesecake Mini’s

    July 23, 2013 by Holly

    As I've said before, my boyfriend is allergic to my baked goods. At least that's what I tell myself. Because I mean, let's be serious, who chooses to NOT like sweets?! I'm not sure if it's a fat/caloric thing or the whole 'I prefer salty over sweet' but he's just not that into my baking. That being said, ol' boy loves him some cheesecake. But only skinny cheesecake. So every year, I have to set out to make some form of skinny/manorexic cheesecake for his birthday. Last year I used his mom's turtle Read more [...]

  2. Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Cookies

    May 8, 2013 by Holly

    If you're anything like me, no amount of chocolate will ever be enough. Sure, I can practice self restraint when it comes to chocolate and desserts. But the question always arises, why? Why should I give up the sweet treat sitting right in front of me? Everything in moderation is okay. Right? And hey, maybe my definition of moderation is a far cry from yours. You say potato, I say patahto. But I digress. Chocolate is delicious and should always be included in baked goods. I mean, do it in the Read more [...]

  3. Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with Nutella Frosting

    April 15, 2013 by Holly

    And then there were cookie bars... Remember that last post about sea-salted brown butter chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Nutella? Well, I've made that recipe easier [and equally as delicious] by turning them into bars! Who wants to spend the time stuffing cookies, when you can just throw them in a pan, whip up a yummy frosting and call it a day? Don't get me wrong, the original recipe is pretty much the best cookie I've ever eaten. No seriously... best ever. But it does take a lot of effort Read more [...]

  4. Stuffed Cookies: The Nutella, Sea Salt & Browned Butter Kind

    February 12, 2013 by Holly

    Oy, I can't believe it's been so long since I've put up a post. I take pictures of pretty much EVERYTHING I bake & then my poor phone has to lug them around until I manage to get to them. Sorry iPhone, I'll be kinder in this new year, I promise. So, something you may not know about me is that I am UBER competitive. I've played soccer all my life and it may be the one place you'll ever see me be a complete wench. Seriously. I am terrified of confrontation in real life, but get me on the soccer Read more [...]

  5. Holiday Cookie Demo: Peanut Butter Blossoms

    December 3, 2012 by Holly

    I absolutely hate public speaking. It's truly painful for me. With that in mind, I have the good fortune of participating in a company-wide Toastmasters' club. I know, it doesn't make sense, but wait, doesn't it? What's the best way to get over your fear or loathing of something? Do it all the time? Apparently. It just so happens that my nearly year of lunch time speaking (with friends) offered me the opportunity to give a speech last week. And with the Christmas season upon us, I couldn't ignore Read more [...]

    Anyone else feeling this way after a huge meal? I’m thankful for my family, friends and of course all the food I’m enjoying! Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Pumpkin Snickerdoodles: All in the Name of Friendsgiving

    November 20, 2012 by Holly

    All hail the weekend before Thanksgiving! Dare I say it is ALMOST as wonderful as Thanksgiving itself? No, that's blasphemy. But in all fairness, it is pretty awesome. It is the perfect excuse/time to try out your new Turkey Day recipes before the big day without fear of  totally flopping and having to buy something from the store at the last minute. STORE bought pumpkin pie? Cookies? Stuffing? Well I never... In light of the upcoming holiday, I was dying for a reason to make something pumpkiny. Read more [...]

  10. Frozen PB Chocolate Banana Bites

    July 31, 2012 by Holly

    I know I've told you about my addiction to Pinterest before. Well today, we're going to talk about my older sister's unhealthy obsession with Pinterest. Okay, not really, but I think it's safe to say that Pinterest comes up in conversation nearly every time we see each other. Did you see my pin? Did you try that recipe? Did you see that I repinned the pin you repinned from so and so? It goes on and on. We're enthralling, I know. BUT with this unhealthy obsession, we've definitely come across some Read more [...]
