I’m headed to San Francisco for a long weekend, so today is my Friday!   I figured why not celebrate with some sprinkles.  What’s more fun and festive than sprinkles?  I really can’t think of anything. These funfetti sugar cookies are so fun and colorful!  They were really easy to make, and the results were amazing!  They are so soft – underbaking them is the key to keeping them very fluffy and tender.  And the flavor is great – sweet and buttery, without being greasy.  These are a perfect simple sugar cookie, and the colorful sprinkles in the dough (with some extra added on top!) make the cookie look as good as it tastes.  I will definitely be making these funfetti sugar cookies again around Christmas, with red and green sprinkles!  Hope you all have a great weekend!…

Cinnamon Ice Cream

I am slightly obsessed with ice cream.  In the summer, I get some type of ice cream almost every day.  I don’t discriminate, I like all forms – frozen yogurt, gelato, ice cream, Tasti D’lite (I know it isn’t really ice cream, but it does the job!).   I don’t actually own an ice cream maker though, because I think the results would be too dangerous.  I can just imagine myself digging into gallons of homemade ice cream – it would turn TheBetterHalf into TheBetterThird!  However when I was visiting my parents the other weekend, I had the chance to experiment with their ice cream maker.  My sister loves cinnamon ice cream, so that’s the flavor that we chose.  And it was delicious.  The taste of this ice cream was so good – the brown sugar perfectly complemented the cinnamon.  It was definitely richer and creamier than most store-bought ice cream.  It would be perfect served on top of apple pie.  …

Today is TheBetterHalf’s birthday! His golden birthday to be exact, turning 28 on May 28! I had good intentions to bake him a cake yesterday, but the weather in NYC was absolutely perfect so we spent the day at Central Park with friends. When it is 70 and sunny, being outside trumps baking! (one of the very few things that trump baking) TheBetterHalf loves chocolate peanut butter anything, but I think his second favorite dessert is classic chocolate chip cookies. So instead of a cake, I have “Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies” in honor of his birthday.  …

Intense Chocolate Brownies

Some days, you just need a brownie.  Like a Monday morning – I don’t know about you, but this whole Monday morning business would be a lot easier if brownies were involved.  What’s not to love about a little square of chocolate decadence.  They always bring a smile to my face!  And I have the perfect recipe for you today.  These brownies are fudgey, moist, and have a deep chocolate flavor.  They are simple – no salted caramel or extra chocolate chips.  And while I enjoy all types of brownies, today I’m sticking to the basics – classic, intensely chocolaty brownies.    …
