Tartine’s Chocolate Soufflé Cake

Five ingredients in this cake. That’s all. There are a bunch of eggs, but you use all parts, so you aren’t left with random yolks or whites leftover. And, this has no flour if you have people who can’t handle it. To me, no flour just means more chocolate flavor. And there is also a lot of chocolate. So, this isn’t the cheapest cake with all of the chocolate and eggs, but it will feed many and make the many happy.

Another Brownie Recipe

That’s right. I’m here to share yet another brownie recipe with you. In case you couldn’t tell, I happen to love bars and brownies. More than cookies. Not that I don’t love cookies. And really, you shouldn’t make me pick between them, but I would pick brownies and bars. Now, if I had to decide between peanut butter and chocolate, I couldn’t do it. Just couldn’t.

Chocolate Peanut Butter S’More Brownies

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a chocolate and peanut butter treat, so here you go. You could always make these with the s’more part, but I liked the mix of textures.

Mixed Bag Mondays (Part 11): Smitten Kitchen Peach and Chocolate

Are you shocked that I voluntarily made a peach dessert? I am. We hosted a summer get-together with K’s side of our friend family. I decided to make this peach dessert because it seemed both easy, simple in ingredients (what you always want for a fruit dessert so that the main ingredient shines through), and something that was better made ahead. It was also easy to serve for a crowd since I could make pieces smaller for people to eat as much or as little as desired.

Grilled S’Mores

Today is a short recipe. More of an instructional guide, if you will. And hopefully you haven’t packed away your grill just yet. Hopefully.

I’ve mentioned a few times in passing that we bought a grill this summer and I have been using it a bunch. Basically, I have been cooking all sorts of things with it to see how it works and learn what we like cooked on it. (So far, everything!) I’ve grilled lettuce, steak, burgers, hot dogs, chicken (breasts and thighs), bread, vegetables (mostly cauliflower and zucchini), potatoes, and now s’mores.

Brownie Bites

When we had visited Maryland, K got to try brownie bites. Technically, this was the second time he had tried them. Now, I already knew he was a corner brownie fan. It turns out, he is a fan of brownie bites, too. Which is amusing since you can buy them at so many stores and he had never asked for them. Anyway, I decided to try my hand at them after seeing they cost $5 for less than 2 dozen at my local grocery store. I could have used one of my other brownie recipes, but I wanted these to be nice and sturdy, while still being chocolatey. Some of mine turned out a bit small because I didn’t fill them up all the way…but that is also how I ended up with extra. Next time, I will fill all of them to the top because they turned out the best.

Chocolate-Chocolate Muffins

These are easy-peasy. And fast. Almost fast enough to appease a toddler. Not quite. He satisfied himself with some other breakfast first, and then feasted on part of one…and then part of K’s. And I think part of mine, too. He is a little mooch, isn’t he? Anyway, he has certainly learned what chocolate looks like and knows he wants it when he sees it. Smart boy.

Quick sidenote…do you consider muffins strictly for breakfast? What about donuts? I always considered both more treats than breakfast, but my husband and some friends feel otherwise.
