Brownies + Bars

Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Happy Valentine’s Day! We are spending this evening going back to our Valentine’s pizza eating tradition this year after spending last year apart with me in New York for grad school interviews. We got into the spirit a little early this year when we had some friends over for dinner this week by serving these pink…

Candy Corn Oreo Blondies

Candy Corn Oreo Blondies

I don’t even like candy corn, but I’m a sucker for any limited edition holiday products, which is what prompted this impulse buy walking through City Target. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I knew I would bake something extra delicious. I don’t think these Oreos taste like…

Roasted Cherry Brownies

Roasted Cherry Brownies

As far as news from our personal life goes— today is the day the mover’s are coming to take our stuff, and then as of tomorrow, Seattle will be in the rearview mirror of our convertible as we embark on our road trip (and new life) in Los Angeles! I am ridiculously excited to drive…

Whole Lemon Bars

Whole Lemon Bars

As much as we both love a good fruit pie,when we order dessert, both Dustin and I will almost always gravitate towards something chocolate, covered in caramel, and loaded with ice cream. Every once in awhile though, I will have an intense craving for something fruity, and usually that fruity dessert is something with lemon,…

Brown Butter Cherry Amaretto Bars

Brown Butter Cherry Amaretto Bars

I really wanted to make cherry amaretto hand pies similar to these for July 4th, but that just wasn’t happening given the sheer number of people that needed to be baked for. Instead, I swapped the hand pies out for bars, adapting the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I was sold after reading brown butter, but…

Cosmic Brownies

Cosmic Brownies

One of my favorite lunchbox treats growing up were Little Debbie’s Cosmic Brownies. I loved the fudgy texture and the colorful sprinkles on top. Even once I got to college, Cosmic Brownies would be one of my frequent snack purchases on my trips to Target. Dustin and I used to eat them together in the…

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

We are officially having a week of summer weather in Seattle! Over the weekend we hit up a park with our neighbors for a little picnic and dog play time. These peanut butter and jelly bars seemed like the perfect, classic and nostalgic all-American dessert for a warm weather outing— all of the flavors of…

Gooey Cinnamon Squares

Gooey Cinnamon Squares

After the chocolate chip brioche pretzels, this was the recipe from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook I was most excited to try. A decadent combination of gooey butter cake (a St. Louis area dessert that is pretty well described by its name) and snickerdoodles, these bars are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I intended to eat only one before…

Fudgey Thin Mint Brownies

Fudgey Thin Mint Brownies

Traveling for nearly three straight weeks was disorienting, and I’m finally feeling up to cooking and baking again. We literally had next to zero food in the house and have been eating all of our dinners out. Of course, we always have pantry staples, and I came back with a couple of boxes of Girl…

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Dough Blondies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie Dough Blondies

Basically these are blondie/white chocolate macadamia nut version of these delicious treats. These blondies are equally tasty; however the flavors of the two layers are not nearly as distinct in flavor or visuals as the original, old-school version. The picture in the Cookie Dough Lovers Cookbook shows the disticntion between the layers; however I was…
