Levain Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Levain Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Levain Bakery’s massive chocolate chip walnut cookie was one of our must-haves when we visited New York a few years ago. It was almost delicious enough to convince me to go to Columbia for grad school instead of UCLA. A labmate of mine went to New York for a conference earlier this year and requested…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

When I visited my parents in Indiana before Christmas, I helped my mom bake a bunch of cookies to put into holiday gift baskets for their neighbors. I chose these cookies because they are super simple (I’ve made them before), they remind me of brownies, and covered in powdered sugar before baking, they look like…

Peppermint Sugar Cookies

Peppermint Sugar Cookies

It’s cookie season! I don’t think I got around to baking gingerbread or sugar cookies last Christmas, so when it was time to bake for a holiday lab get-together, I jumped at the opportunity. In keeping with my theme of trying to put a spin on whatever recipe I make (even if it’s just a…

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Silly me has been out of my baking routine lately, so I forgot to take a single picture of these cookies. I almost thought about “repurposing” an old cookie photograph, but decided against it. Sigh. I really wish I had taken a picture because these cookies came out of the oven looking perfect (not something…

Candy Bar Cookies

Candy Bar Cookies

We’ve been incredibly terrible when it comes to blogging lately, but we’ve possibly been even worse when it comes to actually cooking. If we don’t make it to the grocery store over the weekend, then that’s just not happening for the week, and we’re relying on takeout. Between school/work and a trip back to Seattle,…

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

I’ve sort of dropped the ball again on posting recipes. After we moved we didn’t do much cooking from scratch. We were going on a vacation to Boston (another reason for the lack of posting) to visit our friends who were the biggest consumers of my desserts back when we all lived in Washington. I…

Blood Orange Olive Oil Cookies

Blood Orange Olive Oil Cookies

It’s been a really long time since we’ve blogged, but life has been crazy around here while we moved to a new townhouse. For over a week now we’ve been packing, moving boxes, and unpacking. Cooking, taking pictures, or writing about those things were pretty low on the list of thing we wanted to do after…

Hatch Chile Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hatch Chile Chocolate Chip Cookies

We’ve been making some awesome savory dishes with our Hatch chiles, but the most unique use of the Hatch chiles so far has probably been Hatch chile chocolate chip cookies. Spiciness works well in cookies (seen here), so I figured Hatch chiles could be a good addition to a simple chocolate chip cookie (I haven’t…

Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

I had no intention of making actual monster cookies, but when I was asked to bring desserts for a small event at school and decided to show up with rosemary chocolate chip cookies, I figured I’d better also show up with a more mainstream cookie to please the slightly less adventurous eater. I had all…

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rosemary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adding rosemary to your chocolate chip cookies will change your life. At least I think so, as well as a few other individuals that sampled this creation− they were a big hit with my peers and Dustin’s coworkers. Lately I’ve been obsessed with infusing herbs (basil and mint) into ice cream, and I also remembered thoroughly enjoying…
