Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Salted choc chip new

Cookie lovers of the world unite!  I bring unto you the perfect cookie! There is chocolate and more chocolate topped with salt and baked to a crackly crunch with a soft and chewy inside! You may recognize this recipe.  I first posted it last year.  But I've made these beauties about a dozen times since then, and have simplified it a bit.  I measure the dry ingredients right into the wet ingredients, without messing up another bowl.  Brilliant!  Now I'm sure there is … [continue]

Fresh Raspberry Almond Cake –  One bowl, a few ingredients you probably have in your pantry, and you got cake! I used my recipe for Fresh Strawberry Cake with a few tweaks.

Sheet Pan Mahi Fajitas


Sheet Pan Mahi Fajitas!  This recipe works for all kinds of fish.  Cod, Tilapia and Halibut to name a few. The recipe is basically the same as my Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas and my Salmon Sheet Pan Fajitas, but  you are going to give the veggies a 10 minute head start.  White fish cooks a bit faster than chicken or salmon. […]
