Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookies

It’s yearbook deadline week, which means one thing…hours of work! (And therefore, very short blog posts.) Sadly, I won’t have time for making delicious cookies like these. But you might! And these cookies really are amazing. Peanut butter-chocolate chip dough is smooshed together with chocolate-chocolate chip dough to make a beautiful swirled cookie. I made…

Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars

We’ve been going crazy with the pumpkin recipes this Fall, haven’t we? All of the pumpkin recipes that we’ve shared here so far have been delicious (especially these cupcakes), but these really take the cake (well, pie). These bars entail a perfectly spiced pumpkin pie filling sandwiched between two buttery oatmeal cookies, which, as you…

Espresso Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are both tea people. It probably is hereditary, considering that our mom has two full drawers in our kitchen filled with tea (and this is after she cut down her supply quite a bit!), a shelf of unique tea pots she has collected, and a collection of pretty tea cups. In my opinion, there…

Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting

Let’s talk about things that are ugly. Some things that come into my (Celine) mind are suburban strip malls, rainy slush in the middle of winter, gum on the sidewalk, and the mood inside Congress on a normal day.

A few weeks ago my class was learning about the macromolecules that make up life (carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and proteins, in case you were wondering). We…

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

A few weeks ago, our parents went to a party and requested that we make something for them to bring. We made these cupcakes (a whole bunch of mini ones, plus a few regular ones for pictures!) and wow, were they amazing! The pumpkin cake is truly delicious, with the perfect amount of spice and…

Toasted Marshmallow Cookie Bars

Several weekends ago, our brother had a birthday party. There was a bonfire, and the kids all toasted marshmallows, but there were a ton left over because everyone was full from this huge and very delicious cake: (That’s three layers of cake and about six batches of frosting) The marshmallows been slowly dwindling in our…

Snickerdoodles

Hi everyone, and sorry again for the rather intermittent posting! We have both been so tied up with homework, after-school activities, and college applications (not that they’re done…) that blog posting has been on the back burner. Never fear, though- this weekend, after the SATs on Saturday, we plan to do a lot of cooking…
