Happy almost Halloween! While I sadly didn’t get around to making a themed treat this year, I figured anything pumpkin is at least somewhat festive. These muffins would definitely be the perfect way to treat yourself to a special breakfast this week. Every Friday morning at school, we have a class called Problem Based Learning where we break into small groups and try to solve mock medical cases. It is a nice change of pace from lecture, but the highlight of the morning is really the breakfast. Each week someone is responsible for providing breakfast for the group and as I’m sure you can guess, I was eager to bake. [Read more...]
The fact that it’s mid-October already and I have yet to share a pumpkin recipe needs to change. The truth is that I have so many Fall related recipes that I am dying to post, just too little time! The minute I tried these cookies, they immediately moved to the top of my list. The funny thing is that these cookies came about accidentally and they turned out to be one of my favorite pumpkin treats of all time. [Read more...]
I don’t know about you, but for me, any week that includes cake is a good week. A few weekends ago I finally got around to attending a Momofuku Milk Bar cake class. For those of you who don’t know, Momofuku Milk Bar is a New York City line of bakeries that specializes in desserts that are somewhat out of the ordinary. They make classic treats with fun and unique twists. In the class I attended, we learned how they make their chocolate chip cake layered with passionfruit curd and mocha buttercream. To be honest, I wasn’t crazy for the cake overall. The flavor combination just didn’t do it for me, but the actual plain chocolate chip cake was to die for. We got to snack on scraps throughout the class and I could not stop. When I found out the recipe was both in their cookbook and online, I was pretty excited.
With the first month of Dental School behind me, I’m all about quick and easy recipes these days and these kitchen sink cookies are just that. In 20 minutes tops, you can have fresh baked, warm cookies sitting on your kitchen counter. Definitely a perfect solution for any late night cookie/baking craving! I have had my fair share of pumpkin muffins lately, but I’m always in need of some chocolate. I love this recipe because it consistently yields perfectly soft and fluffy cookies and it is totally adaptable to whatever you have around the house or whatever you are in the mood for.
