Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I just finished writing my 5th cookbook. It has nothing to do with the recipe I am posting today. The book is all about Asian cuisine, and I have included recipes and information about Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese cuisine. I am telling you this because all I have been cooking for the last few weeks is Asian food, and this little blogger needed something sweet as quickly as possible. It also happens that this craving for...

Coconut Butterscotch Toffee Blondies

Someone told me today, “Wow, you look happy!” I AM happy, and evidently it shows! It has been a while since someone told me I looked happy. Frankly, outside of my home life, I have been terribly unhappy. What’s worse: I allowed it. How sad is that? I opted for the ‘safe’ path – the secure job at a place that I now see was bad for me. Why did I sit on my laurels? Because it was easy not to change....

Apple Cherry Oat Bars

So, the New Year is well underway and so many people I know are keen to eat healthy. I have nothing against eating a well balanced diet that incorporates healthy ingredients and cooking techniques with occasional indulgences thrown in to keep cravings in check.  In fact, that is how I try to live my life everyday (with various levels of success … damn you bacon!).  What I don’t like are those who think they can start a new...

Chocolate Chip Coconut ‘Awesome’ Bars

I was kind of half joking on Twitter when I said that I would call these ‘Awesome Bars’. It turns out they are really quite awesome so I felt no qualms about adding it to the title.  So, what are ‘Awesome Bars,’ you might ask?.  Well, they are a dense, buttery cake bottom with a VERY rich cream cheese topping loaded with coconut, chocolate chips, and some crisp rice cereal.  The cereal does not really add any...
