Final Day for #Bake it Happen!

It's the LAST day of our month-long Bake it Happen campaign for breast cancer research. My sister and I are completely overwhelmed from the mass participation this year. It's so meaningful for us to have received pictures of Bake it Happens from complete strangers from all over the country. From cheer leading squads to play dates, Starbuck's Baristas to high schoolteachers, everyone has enjoyed baking one of mom's famed baked goods, all in the name of breast cancer research. There's still one day left, to Bake it Happen.  … [Read more...]

Chai Brownies

Passover is right around the corner. While I don't clean my house of "chametz" (any food that's made of grain and water that have been allowed to ferment and "rise" like: bread, cereal, cake, cookies, pizza, pasta, and beer), I try to avoid cooking or baking with anything that contains flour.  As a result, the weeks prior I usually go on a baking binge to try to curb any chametz-like cravings.

Don't be afraid.  Even though the recipe calls for a whopping 5 eggs, and a hefty 2 1/2 cups of sugar, these brownies don't taste like imposters. This is what 5 eggs plus … [Read more...]

Kahlua Brownies

Who needs another brownie recipe, right?  Even my kids can make brownies in their sleep.  Mom's Kahlua Brownies is one of our favorite recipes.  We love using any Duncan Hines Chocolate Brownie mix as our base. And, why not get a little creative and bake some of these brownies with a little “kick” to them?  It makes perfect sense.  I've been to many restaurants where I eat my dessert with a side of Bailey's.  Why not combine them? But, beware, these brownies are deadly.  Their consistency is much moister than any other brownie I've … [Read more...]
