Way Back Wednesday: January 22, 2020

Happy Wednesday! This week's look back into the blogging archives for this day is so, so good. I want to make each one of these again ASAP!

From 2012, Hazelnut Cappuccino Cupcakes
hazelnut cappuccino cupcakes with 7-minute frosting
My love of the hazelnut cappuccino was in full swing this year. (And now I think a Starbucks run is definitely in order.) These cupcakes are topped with the absolutely swoon-worthy, fluffy 7-Minute Frosting. Dreamy.

From 2018, Stranger Things Valentine Cookies

If you're obsessed with the show Stanger Things, then I think you'll love these cookies (more than Eleven loves Eggos)! Details and tutorial...

From 2017, Dutch Baby (German Pancakes)
Dutch Baby (German pancake) recipe
Dutch Babies are one of my favorite things to make...I've been making them since we were first married. I played around with my recipe and came up with this glorious version. It makes for such a great presentation at breakfast but is the simplest thing ever to make!

And from 2011, Pecan Snowballs

These cookies really are perfection. This is my Aunt Janice's recipe...her recipes never fail! (Please don't hold the horrible photography against the cookies!)

Let's hear it! What are you making this week? 

Everyday Brownies

Everyday Brownies: the best, fudgy, basic brownies! bakeat350.net
I. Love. Brownies. My very favorite...the center square from a pan of deep, dark, fudgy brownies. Ahhh. I've made lots (and lots!) of brownies on the blog: Caramel Brownies, Kahlua Cheesecake Brownies, Guinness-Vanilla Bean Frosted Mocha Brownies...you can find a list of allllll of the brownies and blondies on the blog here.

Sometimes though, I just want a plain ol' brownie. A basic brownie. A fudgy, rich, close-your-eyes-and-swoon brownie. This is it.

The recipe comes together all in one pan. It's a method I learned from King Arthur Flour many years ago, and it works! The result is a fudgy, moist brownie studded with melty chocolate chips, with that signature crackly top. Perfection.

Way Back Wednesday: January 15, 2020

This week's look back has us going alllllllll the way back to 2009! To be honest, 2009 seems like last week, but alas, it was eleven years ago. We'll also visit posts from this week in 2010, 2015, and 2017. Let's go! (As always, click the titles of the posts to see them.)

Let's start with the oldest, from 2009, Texas Valentine Cookies

You can tell it's from an old post because the photo is small and dark, but I still love these...and that scalloped heart cutter. There's a UT version as well.

From 2010, FAQs
Oh, this is a goodie. This post is filled with my answers to questions from blog readers. Yeah, some of the info is a little dated, but the cookie decorating Q & A's are timeless.

From 2015, You're Too Stinkin' Cute (skunk valentine cookies)

Who doesn't love a skunk-themed valentine? Tutorial in post.

And from 2017, Rosemary Focaccia

Hello, comfort food!

What's on your baking agenda this week? Be sure to pop over to Instagram to see what's happening in my kitchen...and see the kitties.

How to Make Chai

 Are you ready for the coziest post ever? I'm telling you...put on some PJs and your comfiest socks - it's time to get cozy.

We're making homemade chai. Did you know that "chai" means tea? Yeah...I wonder how many years I went around ordering "tea tea?"

spices for homemade chai
If you're not familiar with chai, it is a spicy, milky tea that is maybe the most comforting beverage you can ever have. Making it from scratch (chai-flavored tea bags or concentrates here) makes ALL the difference!

I promise you'll love it. I'm sharing my recipe over on The Pioneer Woman Food & Friends today. I'll meet you there for a cup!


Way Back Wednesday: January 8, 2020

Hi, y'all! Happy 2020! I hope your new year is off to a fantastic start! This week, our look back over the blogging years takes us all the way back to 2011, then 2016 and 2018. Let's go! (As always, click the links for the recipes.)

From 2011, Light(ish) Chocolate Cheesecake Squares
Light(ish) Chocolate Cheesecake Squares
At one time in my life, I went through the "low-fat and light" replacement baking stage. This is a bit of a holdover from that time, but not too crazy. Feel free to use the full-fat versions of everything. Just know that these are DECADENT even with the light version.

From 2016, THE Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

We've all heard the story. You'll have to read the post to see if it's true. (Spoiler: it's not.)

And from 2018, Strawberry Cocoa Nib Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was *just* thinking about these cookies recently and how I needed to make them ASAP. Well, I consider them popping up today as a sign. Join me?
