Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackle Cookies

I don’t think that there is a more perfect flavour combination that chocolate and peanut butter. 🙂

I tasted my first crackle cookie last Christmas.  My friend, Kerri had brought them in as her contribution to our office cookie exchange.  I was hooked on my first bite, they are absolutely delicious.  They taste like a brownie – perfect!

Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies

Today the role of guest foodie will be played by Connie’s sister, Cherie.

When I read Connie’s post for ‘Chocolate Brownies’, I felt the need to answer her question of “is there any other kind?”

Well of course there are other types of brownies out there and this is, by far the best Black Bean Brownie recipe that I have come across – and trust me, I have tried a few.  Some are too dry, some are too wet and some are just too, well, beany.  But this was the perfect consistency for a delicious guilt-free brownie treat.

Raw Coconut Cherry Ball Pops

I know it was only a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ball recipe, but I came up with another creation this weekend, and I just couldn’t wait to share it with you!

My friend, Kerri, and I were talking about how great raw cookies are and that she had shared the link to the cookie ball post with some of her friends. The feedback was that we might be in the middle of a bliss ball revolution! (bliss ball being a raw cookie ball)  I heard their battle cry and was determined to come up with a new bliss ball creation 🙂

Chocolate Brownies

*I don’t know why I had to call this post Chocolate Brownies, because really, is there any other kind?

I am going to be completely honest with you – this is the first time I have ever made brownies from scratch!
I KNOW! You would think that I have dabbled with a variety of scratch brownies over the years, but nope, this is my first attempt. I have always fallen victim to the pre-boxed mix. Don’t get me wrong, the mixes taste pretty good, and they are incredibly easy, but they don’t compare to scratch baking.

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

It is difficult to satisfy your craving for baked goods in the summer-time. I have a hard time turning on the oven to whip up a batch of cookies, when the temperature inside the apartment is close to 30°C.

But, I have found the perfect solution for this dilemma – Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls!

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? It really is the cookie that all other cookies are compared to. It makes a lot of sense. Chocolate, butter and sugar, well, it is pretty much perfect.

Everyone has a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe that they stand behind. I have mentioned before that my favourite cookie recipes involve rolled oats, but this recipe isn’t my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe. I tried this one after my Mom gave me a pile of cookbooks when she cleaning out her kitchen.

Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies

I know you are wondering why I am posting another pumpkin recipe. I mean it is spring time, not the fall, however, after whipping up a batch of Pumpkin Maple Muffins; I had to find something else to do with the leftover pumpkin that was sitting in the fridge.

Chocolate Mocha Cookie

I love coffee!  This wasn’t always the case, and I feel that it definitely is a flavour that you start to appreciate as your tastebuds mature.  I tend to lean towards flavoured coffee, which is what makes up my entire Keurig collection.  In fact, my favourite coffee flavour combination is mocha (half coffee/half hot chocolate) Yummy!

Chocolate Avocado Cake-Like Brownie

I have been seeing a lot of recipes showing up that call for the use of avocado.  The only way I have ever had avocado is in guacamole or tossing it in a salad.  I was intrigued by the possible versatility of this ingredient.

Ham-Burr-ger Helper

The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.

It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.

Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.
