Gingerbread Brownie Bars

If you’ve been following my baking journey long enough you’ll know about my relationship with Gingerbread cookies. It’s  one of the things, along with macarons that just don’t bake well with me. I’m blaming it on the humidity and temperature of where I currently live. Every year, I attempt to make them and I end…

Coffee Cheesecake Brownies

Warning: This may ruin your diet. After last week’s cheesecake experimentation that left me dubbing myself as the baked cheesecake whisperer, I ended up with a pack of extra cream cheese and an overwhelming feeling of guilt that only happens after inhaling 3 entire cheesecakes over one weekend. One thing just kept ringing in that…

Beurre Noisette Blondies

Sometimes I dream of making fancy desserts that belong in a Parisian bakery store-front, or at a wedding at the a fancy hotel. Other times I just want to sit in my sweatpants and eat raw cookie dough out of a mixer bowl. Yes – I want to lick the chocolate off the spatula, and no…

S’mores Brownies

Where I come from, s’mores aren’t really a thing. I didn’t grow up having them. Our idea of campfire side snacks were a bag of nuts, chips, and a bunch of basic snacks. I have to mention though, the highlight of any camping trip for me was always the potato bakes in aluminum foil over…

Not another brownies recipe!

The title says it all. I’ve been hesitant in showing you this recipe thinking there are so many out there, so why mine? Why another “classic” brownie recipe? Well, because if you’re anything like me, and you manage to successfully make a recipe over and over again, each time tweaking one little thing about, you would want to…

12 Days of Baking – Day 2: Red Velvet Brownie Bars

The red velvet craze is still on, and it seems like it’s going to be a while before I get over it. Today’s Christmas treat is simple, easy (need I say more) and probably the best brownie bars you’ll ever have. I have done a few different brownie recipes, but none come close to these bars though….

Heartwarming Winter Desserts.

It’s finally raining! Well, maybe it was just a few drops of rain on my windshield as I drove back home from work last night, but it rained! If you’re wondering why I’m this excited about the rain, and if you just started following my blog, then here’s a small recap. I moved to Qatar…

Ultimate Chocolate Brownies.

I’ve been baking and blogging for almost two years now, and not once have I shared a brownies recipe. It’s not because I never made them (or at least attempted to make them) it’s because I truly think that they hate me. Brownies refuse to let me enjoy a perfectly baked batch. They either turn…

Autumn/Winter Baking Favorites; Part 1: Pumpkin Flavored Everything.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ― George Eliot Autumn has always been my favorite season. The time when everything is just letting out its final burst of beauty, as if it were nature’s grand finale. The change…

Peanut Butter Brownies

For me, peanut butter trumps chocolate spread every time. What makes it better is mixing them together.. Well maybe not the spreads, but a good peanut butter brownie.. An easy one bowl recipe (well technically 2 bowls but still) perfect for those lazy night cravings. Peanut Butter Brownies Ingredients – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted…
