Chocolate chip cookies are simply heaven on a plate! Now, not any ole chocolate chip cookie is going to make be good enough for me. Mine have to be thick and chewy if they are going to be worth the calories and they must be able to last for days in an airtight container. This recipe is the best because it comes from the best: Alton Brown! Be sure you read through my three tips and tricks to making them turn out perfect every single time.
Lemon bars were always my favorite dessert when I was a kid. I adored the shortbread crust, the layer of fresh lemon curd and a generous layer of powdered sugar dusted on top. This is my mom’s famous recipe but with a few tweaks I’ve made over the years to up the lemon flavor just a bit. They make the best dessert for summer and kids love them!
Frosted brownies have to be my favorite form of chocolate, but they have to be done right: dense, rich, a killer frosting and super fudgy. The classic recipe checks all those boxes for me and they are hands-down my favorite brownie recipe that I make. The best….pinky-swear promise! My kids love them as a special treat in their lunchbox and they are always a hit at our church potluck. Extra bonus, they mix together in one bowl with a wooden spoon so they are simple and quick to make.
A Larabar is my absolute favorite snack or after dinner treat because they taste so amazing yet they are so healthy. That combo is near impossible to find! However, the cost of buying them made me feel guilty so I knew I could make them myself: simple ingredients, no preservatives, gluten free, dairy free and loaded with protein and fiber.
I know many of you are doubting me right now, but please TRUST ME and give this recipe a try. You will be shocked at how amazing they are and even your kids will beg you for them! To quote my picky hubby “Wow! Those are shockingly good!”
