Flourless Chocolate Cookies While my kiddos didn't care for this recipe, the folks at work did.  They were eaten not long after I put them in the kitchen.  I thought they had a very rich taste. Confetti White Chocolate Bars These were ridiculously easy to make. I didn't get a picture because Wee One dug in as soon as she could.  She really liked them. Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Baked Potato This recipe takes a bit longer.  But that's only because of making sure not to scorch the cheese sauce.  The Hubs wasn't sure about the whole in a potato thing, but it was still really good.  The perfect mixture of everything. Grilled Pesto Shrimp I'm not gonna lie.  Looking at the mixture marinating the shrimp, it didn't look appetizing at all.  But once the shrimp hit the grill they smelled delicious.  The end result wasn't bad either.  Boy Child devoured 4 skewers before saying he was full. Overall the recipes I tried were fabulous. I can't wait to try a few more, especially the scones.

    The Cookies & Cups Cookbook is a delicious collection of over 125 sweet and savory recipes. This cookbook is divided in two sections – desserts and dinner.

The recipes have a different range of difficulty so readers will find many delicious choices to match their cooking expertise. My family are chocoholics so we selected to try The Fudgiest Brownies recipe. Not only was it because of the chocolate but because our mouth watered from the picture. I confess that I am a lazy cook. I avoid recipes that have too many ingredients or complicated steps. So as soon as I read the recipe I knew I found one that had a good chance for success. And I was right! Each step of the recipe was clear for me to follow; even the amount of time to cook was exact. The recipe and I was a perfect match! And when my family tried the finish product they were speechless. Minutes passed before anyone told me what they thought. They were too preoccupied with eating the brownies. This was so easy to make and tasted so delicious. I will never buy a boxed brownie mix again! I received this book as a member of the XOXperts, XOXO After Dark’s official street team, in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is drool-worthy. I absolutely must own a copy! The bulk of the book focuses on dessert recipes which look amazing. The last quarter of the book has dinner, salad, and side recipes which also look fantastic. I haven't had a chance to try any as I was severely overdue in returning the book to the library (oops!) but most of the ingredients are every day items in your pantry and it's all very user-friendly.

    Great pictures. The recipes are traditional with a twist and I think very doable for the average baker. No over-the-top stuff here that looks and is complicated.

    THINGS I'VE MADE COOKIES AND CREAM COOKIES I made half the recipe and got 28 cookies. I omitted the chopped Oreo's and white chocolate chips. I added chopped lightly toasted slivered almonds and 1/4c. mini semisweet chocolate chips. My dough balls didn't spread much at all during baking and were very thick.

I added chopped lightly toasted slivered almonds and 1/4c. mini semisweet chocolate chips. My dough balls didn't spread much at all during baking and were very thick. When they came out of the oven I flattened them with the back of a measuring cup. I flattened the rest of the dough balls before baking. These are bland-tasting, not sweet enough, and I'd never make them again. Dense too. EPIC CHOCOLATE PUDDING PIE This pie couldn't have been easier to make. You bring ingredients to a boil on the stove, pour into prebaked pie shell and refrigerate for hours. I used a store-bought Keebler® shortbread pie crust and thawed frozen whipped topping instead of homemade whipped cream (I don't like it). I made half the recipe. The pie is a little bitter and not quite sweet enough. I think it would still be bitter with less chocolate so next time I make it I'm going to use bittersweet chocolate in place of unsweetened to see if that helps. CRISPY CHEWY OATMEAL COOKIES These turned out great but needed a little more salt. I used unsalted butter when the recipe called for salted so I needed to add a little more salt than the recipe called for. I did but not enough. I omitted the coconut and white chocolate chips and added mini semisweet chocolate chips and finely chopped lightly toasted pecans. I'd definitely make these again. I made half and got 24 cookies. My first batch, pictured, were overbaked by about one minute and they got harder as they sat in a sealed container. TACO PASTA This was pretty good and required just one deep skillet to cook the pasta in then the meat mixture. It uses ground beef, taco mix, chili powder, cumin, corn, crushed tomatoes, salsa, shredded cheese. I made half the recipe but used even less pasta than called for. I used about 1 1/2 c. dry (5oz) instead of 8oz. I omitted the black beans. The salsa almost ruined this as the flavors didn't mesh with the other seasonings. I'll definitely make this again, minus the salsa TEXAS SHEET CAKE I made half of this chocolate cake in a 9"x1.5" round pan*. The cake is made with equal parts butter and shortening, melted. It uses a small amount of unsweetened cocoa powder. It's dense and very good. I added extra salt because I used unsalted butter, not salted like the recipe states. I made my own vanilla frosting for this, not the chocolate one in the recipe. *An 8"x2" round or square pan holds the same amount. CATAGORIES: So You Think You Can Bake?, Eat Cake For Breakfast, Cookies, Brownies and Bars, Cake, Frosting, Pie, Party Snacks, Pizza and Pasta, Salads and Sammies, Family Favorites. MY THOUGHTS: I'm pretty disappointed in this book. I've made five things and there are only about six more I'd actually make and there's no telling how they'd turn out. Of the things I've made only two were what I'd call really great, the sheet cake and oatmeal cookies. The great thing about the oatmeal cookies is that you can add whatever you want to the batter if you'd like, like chocolate chips, chopped dried fruit or nuts. There's an attractive color photo for each and every recipe, which is very nice, and I love the cover. There's maybe eight recipes that have silly childish sprinkles or cereal decorating the top or stirred into the batter, which is very unappealing to me as an adult. I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    There is nothing I do not like about this book. The writing is superb. It's fun to read, and motivates you to get in the kitchen to get baking. This isn't one of those stuffy baking books that makes you feel inferior if you don't own 5 food processors and 5 Artesian stand mixers and a huge pantry stuffed with esoteric ingredients imported from Switzerland.

The writing is superb. It's fun to read, and motivates you to get in the kitchen to get baking. This isn't one of those stuffy baking books that makes you feel inferior if you don't own 5 food processors and 5 Artesian stand mixers and a huge pantry stuffed with esoteric ingredients imported from Switzerland. There are plenty of recipes accompanied by handsome photographs. And best of all is the formatting: one page for the recipe and one page for a full size photograph. Each section has it's own introduction, and as I mentioned earlier, the writing is superb. The recipes are a good balance between esoteric recipes (e.g. Step 1: grow your own wheat for the pasta) and recipes that are TOO down to earth (e.g. take a frozen chicken breast, pour some canned red stuff on it, sprinkle some cheese, slap it in the microwave and hey, you made chicken parmesan! And hey, home cook! If the recipe doesn't work, it's 'cause you gotta turn on the microwave!) Her writing style reminds me of Peg Bracken, who wrote the classic "I Hate to Cook" book. The book was funny to read but actually had good recipes in it. It's a classic for a reason. Enough review. I'm going in the kitchen now, I wanna try the Brown Sugar Blondies.

    I’ve made many recipes from the this cookbook and the vast majority were delicious. Her blog is a go to site for me when looking for a good recipe. I do have two warnings: 1. The author has a husband and 4 kids, so the main dish recipes are huge. I was eating Taco Pasta for a week. 2. Lower the sugar amount in the cake recipes. My friends know I’m a sugar fiend, so if it’s too sweet for me, wow.

    One of my all time favorite food bloggers took the plunge and wrote a cookbook. It took me a few years to read it, but I’m glad I did. Not just a rehash if her online recipes! New and interesting takes on some favorites, mixed in classics, and brand new mouth watering eats. Topped with her charming personality in the descriptions, this is a can’t miss for any dessert lover.

It’s one of my favorite things to do. Not just because you get to create something that people will enjoy - but because it is what I do when I’m stressed out to get myself to feel better. An hour (or 5) later you can look at your trays of perfectly baked (ok, some of them are always burned because of my failure to remember to use a timer) cookies, cakes, muffins or other sugar filled goodies. When “The Cookies and Cups Cookbook” by Shelly Jaronsky arrived on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago I was so excited. I mean, there was a little jumping up and down…or at least bouncing. As a person who is a big fan of cookbooks - this is my method: I look through the book several times before picking something I want to try. I look at the pictures first, then the pictures and the recipes that are alongside them. I decided to try two of the recipes - for things I have never made before. I made the “Supersoft Coconut-Lime Cake” on pages 132-133. This cake was a really fun thing to make for me because it was unlike anything I had made before. This cake is made from scratch and uses both fresh lime juice and zest to give it the super potent lime flavor. The “supersoft” description stems from the use of coconut milk in the cake and a lime flavored simple syrup that is poured over the cake once it comes out of the oven and is topped with a coconut buttercream icing. I took this sugary concoction to work to share with my co-workers and while the general consensus is that it was very tasty - there was too much lime. Next time I make this cake I will likely cut the amount of lime by at least half. Other than the punch of sour, this cake was very good and a fun recipe to make and share. I also made the “Flourless Chocolate Cookies with Flaked Sea Salt” that can be found on pages 70-71 in this newly released cookbook! I’ve never made anything that was flourless or gluten free. I recently made a new friend who has a gluten allergy and when i was making my initial pass through the book, I thought of her and that I should learn to make something that she could potentially eat. This was so strange for me! A recipe that doesn’t call for flour OR butter?! I almost didn’t know what to do with myself! The combination of dry ingredients goes into your mixing bowl first and the only wet ingredients you have for the entire recipe are egg whites. Honestly, I was skeptical. No butter? It had to be a misprint! I always make a recipe like the recipe tells me to the first time, and as mentioned above for the previous recipe, will make changes as I see fit for my own baking needs. I mixed up the ingredients as the recipe called for. I scooped out my sticky piles of chocolate batter, i baked and then sprinkled with sea salt. Still skeptical, I took the pretty cookies to my office the next day and, having not tried one of these alien cookies myself, offered them to my co-workers and sat back to see what would happen. They were met with positive reviews. Once they were compared to “tiny little brownies” I had to try one and I was not disappointed! These flourless cookies were super easy to make - a mere 6 ingredients - and were amazing! The sea salt on top gives them just the right amount of salty combined with the sweetness of the cookie. They do truly taste like a flattened brownie. This is a recipe that needs no “Brandi tinkering” to get it the way I like it. Author Shelly Jaronsky shared one of the recipes with XOXO After Dark. Here’s the link to her recipe for “French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese": http://xoxoafterdark.com/2016/04/21/g...

So I know brownies and chocolate chip cookies.  But since I was majorly jones'ing for chocolate (blame the 21-day Fix diet I've been on), I made "The Fudgiest Brownies".  And this wasn't a measly 8x8 pan recipe, this was the 13x9 family sized recipe.  This is looking promising... I will suggest that you take a bit of time reading "My Rules (or Lack Thereof) in the Kitchen".  Ms. Jaronsky highlights how she cooks and bakes in her kitchen.  One of her slightly different ingredients is that she uses kosher salt instead of regular table salt.  She explains why.     I'm not sure if it was because my kosher salt was older or what, but my hubs and I kept tasting salt in our brownies when we ate the final product.  I'm not sure I'd follow that bit of advice again when I go to make another recipe.  I would just back down the salt measurement, depending on if I used salted or unsalted butter.  Another thing I might have done "wrong" is that I melted the chocolate chips in the microwave.  Most recipes nowadays will tell you it's perfectly fine to melt chocolate in the microwave, as long as it's done carefully.  So me and by Batter Bowl got to work (doesn't everyone have a Pampered Chef tool or three?). Finally, I would use ALL semisweet chocolate chips because I am from the school that brownies should never be milk chocolate.  The darker the better I say. My next attempt will be the chocolate chip cookies.  I am the consummate connoisseur of chocolate chip cookies.  I have a signature recipe, too.  We'll see if Ms. Jaronsky's is up to snuff... I predict sooner rather than later ;)  Review appears on

This cookbook is loaded with rich and creamy cakes, cookies, and pastries, and party snacks with color illustrations and pictures. I had never heard of many of these recipes and can't wait to try more of them. Any of these scrumptious sweets are bound to make an impression on your family and friends, and you will have something to share that is a nice change of pace.

Shelly includes helpful tips and also has a gorgeous full-page photo for each recipe. This is one of my favorite cookbooks published in recent memory, and as an obsessive baker I can tell it will be a go-to cookbook for me.

    I just got this wonderful cookbook. I am not familiar with Shelly Jaronsky's blog, but feel like I quickly got to know her through reading her unprentious and easy to follow cook book. She has great tips in her foreword/introduction and spaced throughout the book. As someone who loves to bake and make desserts and owns MANY cookbooks, this one looks like a keeper. Looking forward to making it well used! I just got this wonderful cookbook.

    Great for your less confident baker (as it sometimes leans on store-bought crusts and ingredients that I wouldn't normally have around) and it is definitely a totally indulgent cookbook - nothing wrong with that. I kinda wish they hadn't put the savory items in the back - it takes away from the very over the top (dare I say...Midwestern?) tone of the book. If you have to bake for lots of bake sales, this book would be perfect.

    Just read it already but with cookies nearby! I would have given it another half star if I could, but the real meals at the latter half of the book just threw me off and felt out of place. My favourite and next to make Pumpkin Crumb Cake. Must read and purchase. Perfect hostess or housewarming gift.

    Decent layout for the cookbook. The recipes look amazing but I haven't tried one yet so only 4 stars. Maybe when I try some out it will bump up to a 5 Decent layout for the cookbook.
