Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins I was perusing my cookbook for Tuesdays with Dorie, I came upon a recipe for Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins on page 19, complete with a giant picture on the opposite page. They just looked and sounded too good to resist. I checked the completed recipes list of TWD, thinking surely someone had picked this recipe to bake in the past...but no, it hasn't come up on the list yet. Well, I just had to make them, and couldn't pass up blogging about them!

Now, can someone please explain to me how a recipe that says it yields 12 muffins, actually makes 22 when I make it?? I don't understand it. Do I have a misconception of what "regular" muffin tins are? Surely not. I did not pull out my mini muffin pans, I promise! :) It is possible that I didn't fill my muffin cups up enough, but I really think if I'd used all the batter for just 12 muffins, I would have been facing a huge mess... Who knows. Anyway, I wound up with a lot more than it was supposed to make, but that's not entirely a bad thing!

Oh man...the smell while these were baking...torturous! The wait while cooling enough to eat? Even more so. The taste test? Yummy!! Nice and chocolate-y, but not overly sweet. Definitely a muffin, as opposed to a cupcake. And having extras? Definitely not a bad thing!!
Update: D tried one, but didn't like it. Even though I told him it was a muffin, he was still expecting something sweeter, more of a cupcake. Guess I'll have to try the chocolate-chocolate chunk cupcakes next! ;)

These are one my fav muffins from the book. You expect the muffins to be sweet but in fact they are a little under-sweetened. I love them with coffee.

Thick and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I admit, I love snickerdoodles.   Cinnamon and vanilla?   Yes, please.   What’s funny is that I never really had them much as a kid, just occasionally in the school cafeteria.   I know, ew. Anyway, snickerdoodles were one of the first cookies that the Munchkin helped make when he was little.   He could help dump everything in the mixer (or “loud noise” as he would call it!) and then it was fun for him to roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar before putting them on the baking sheet. Even since then, my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles has been this one by Emeril.   It’s a great recipe, baking up a thin, crispy cookie (at least when I make them!).   However, I was looking for something different this time, something thicker and chewier.   I found this recipe from the blog How Sweet it Is .   I decided to try it, and while I did keep the ingredient list the same I changed up the method a bit to suit me better.   The result?   What I was looking for – thick and

Homemade Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I recently professed my love of coffee and fancy coffee drinks.  After the success of the Peppermint Mocha , I decided to tackle the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one of my favorites.  According to the Starbucks website, it has flavors of "cinnamon, butter and brown sugar".  Well, I covered the cinnamon and brown sugar components, but left out the butter.  And you know what, I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself!  I honestly wasn't sure if the cinnamon flavor in the syrup was going to be strong enough, but it was.  I will admit to being impatient and not letting it steep for very long, so the cinnamon flavor might develop more if you do actually let it sit and cool off first.  If you wanted it to be even stronger, you could always add a tiny bit of cinnamon oil to it as well.  But be careful -- a little of that goes a long way! How much to make depends on how much you'll actually use.  I just made a single batch this first time, but considering

Chewy Ginger Snaps

Sit down.  No really, I mean it.  There are 12 weeks until Christmas.  Seriously.  Get out your calendar and count if you don't believe me!  Do you know how I know this?  Because I'm participating in the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies this year.  It's hosted by April of Abby Sweets .  And there's a linky thing to all the other cookie posts  down at the bottom of this post.  Or at least there's supposed to be.  ;) Aside from being horrible at time management and also being a huge procrastinator, want to know what my biggest problem has been?  Narrowing down what cookies I'm going to make!  There are just so many choices out there.  I decided to start with this recipe for Chewy Ginger Snaps. I got this recipe many years ago off an online parenting message board, and I've made it several times since then and adjusted the recipe slightly.  I'm sure there are several recipes out there, and I'm just not certain of the original source.  I quite often m
