When I was little, chocolate chip cookies were my favorite type of cookies on the planet. Oatmeal raisin? Not so much. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, because I did, they just weren’t at the top of the list. It wasn’t until I started cooking and baking when I was 9 or 10 that […]

While searching for a way to make my favorite gluten-free brownies even better (which I admit – with the utmost humility – is a bit hard to do), I realized that I didn’t have any chocolate in my pantry. None. Nada. Nil. It’s very rare for me to be out of chocolate, even if it […]
