Peanut Butter Cookie Cupcakes

I have a confession: I don’t love peanut butter. I like it, but I don’t love it. I feel like peanut butter is at its peak paired with strawberry jam between two slices of bread. When it comes to desserts, peanut butter is usually just “meh”. Give me white chocolate or caramel and I’m totally satisfied.

But this cupcake violated my peanut butter rules.

Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites

Cookie dough can be one of those guilty pleasures. You know you shouldn't eat it, but there's nothing quite like the chewy sweetness of chocolate chip cookie dough.

So when I can whip some up without worrying about raw egg, I don't have to hide the half-eaten dough - I can actually dress it up a little.

And this cookie dough is dressed for a party.

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

Sometimes you need a quick and easy cake to whip up for dessert. Really, anything sweet and yummy will do. It doesn't have to be fancy, it just has to be good.

This is not one of those cakes.

This was an I-need-this-cake-and-I-will-do-whatever-it-takes-to-get-it cake.

Cookie Cup-Brownies: Brookies

When I make a dessert there are basically three qualifications:

1. Can I make it in 3 bowls or fewer?
2. Can I make it with ingredients I already have?
3. Will it look cute?

If the answer isn't yes to all 3 questions, I move on.

Anyways, these brownie-cookie "brookie" cups totally aced the 3 baking rules. And boy were they cute.

Soulmate Cupcakes

I had a wedding-related event to attend this weekend, so what better dessert to bring than one that shows a little love.

I would have preferred to make these in classic red and white using red velvet cake and white cream cheese frosting, but I had a couple pints of blueberries in the fridge and I just can't say no to blueberries.
