Neiman Marcus Cookies

You may remember a certain fictitious e-mail regarding Neiman Marcus cookies circulating through e-mail back in the mid 90s. Years ago, I made these cookies and they are delicious, I would like to make them again. But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that Neiman Marcus has a different cookie recipe […]

Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I had never made macaroons before. I had heard people talk about them before, but I hadn’t actually had a macaroon, so I had no inclination to make them myself. Well, the stars aligned and I just happened to have all of the ingredients in my house and needed a snack for our first small […]

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Chocolate-Ancho Crème Brûlée

Crème brûlée nombre trois. You guys know I can’t resist adding chocolate to everything, so in an attempted to chocolate-ize crème brûlée, we tried out this recipe. Mmm looks like pudding. I should make some pudding this week . . . hm. Anyways. This version was delicious but didn’t quite seem like crème brûlée. Something […]
