Just Sweet Enough Chocolate Biscotti

I gained four pounds over Christmas, thanks to the damn bananalicious cookies that I made on New Year’s Eve.  So now I am on sugar detox and it is killing me.  Last Friday I was snowed in and was dying to bake something, anything, just to kill some time and feed my baking addiction.  I…

The Best Chocolate Muffins EVER!!!

I am an expert on muffins.  It is, by far, my favorite thing to munch on in the morning.  I have no less than 50 muffin recipes in my baking arsenal and I have been known to try other people’s muffins on occasion.  Now that I have made my qualifications clear, I have to proclaim…

Candy Cane Fudge

It is well documented that I am obsessed with peppermint.  I exclusively eat peppermint stick ice cream, I put peppermint in my hot cocoa, coffee, and even in my cocktails.  And to me, there is no flavor that is more festive than peppermint.  When whipping up some chocolate fudge for Christmas, I decided to kick…
