That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

This recipe makes slightly ironic use of another recipe of mine, Gourmet Vegan All-Purpose Seasoning. While tilapia obviously isn’t vegan, this seasoning makes for a great crust/rub on this otherwise bland fish. What’s even better is that this recipe works great in a cast iron skillet. Intimidated by your skillet? Don’t be! Just reference the guide

When I asked the fiancé what he wanted for dinner the other day, he said, “I don’t know, something with vegetables.” Now, I’ll never pass up veggies, but the fact that they were specially requested made it extra important. Since I had also planned on inviting some friends over for dinner that night, I decided

I had a special request for a non-recipe post about how to clean and maintain pots and pans. I started making up a list of different tricks for lining pans and how to clean cast iron. Then I started thinking about the different kinds of cookware, as each one has slightly different cleaning needs. Then

Here’s yet another treasure from one of my old cookbooks. This one is brought to you by the 1913 publication, Household Discoveries and Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book. 1, 2, 3, 4 cookies get their name from their ingredient list, which is based around 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour,

I like french fries, but I don’t like how heavy they feel in my stomach after I eat them. If you’re also a fan of potatoes as a side dish, you’ll be pleased to know that they can be just as delicious without all the grease and calories that come from deep frying! These wedges

My friends and I got together one day, back in the fall, and we tried to make chicken burgers. They tasted great, but they just fell apart. This time, we decided to try something different — binding agents. If you ever wondered why egg and bread crumbs were on the ingredient list for meatballs and

I’ve really been into making hummus lately. Buying it in batches at the store, with the amount of it I can eat in a week, gets expensive quickly. Making it at home is way cheaper, even with this recipe, which is the most expensive because of the tapenade. Of the three I’ve made so far,
