Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Rolls

Bad days often equal the best ideas. When I am having a not-so-awesome day I tend to escape into food fantasy. My happy place is a fully loaded kitchen with an unlimited supply of butter, bacon, and chocolate – and an open bar. Anyway, on one of my recent no-so-awesome days I retreated to my inner test-kitchen and decided I wanted to combine cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies, with a little cream cheese tossed in for good...

Peaches & Cream Cookies

My name is Kelly, and I am a peach hoarder. No, really! I love peaches as you may well know. Last year – as peach season came to a close – I got a bulk package of dry peaches to get me though the winter. I love them because they are sweet, chewy, and terribly versatile. I may have gone a little over-board, however, in the amount purchased. Despite the fact that I dice them up and toss them into my morning oatmeal,...

Yes, even my vegetables are Evil! I...

I have...

Queso Blanco Pull-Apart Bread

Get ready, it is time for cheesy carbs and free stuff! First, the free stuff! I have been a busy girl over the last year writing and photographing my own cookbooks, and shooting the photos for other cookbooks. It has been a labor of love – and many, many cuss words. That said, I am giving away two of these books, one written by me the other photographed by me. The first is a signed copy of Moufflet, my cookbook featuring recipes...

Chocolate Cherry Crumb Bars

Can you feel the romance in the air? I only ask because Valentine’s Day is coming, and that means it is time to start thinking about treats to give the ones you love. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Shenanigans Homestead. I do not require bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, or fancy dinners out. Instead we keep it low-key. Typically we make dinner together – he grills and I do the rest...
