I was a Girl Scout once upon a time. Emphasis on once. Technically I was a Brownie. Each week a group of girls and myself would walk to our troop leader’s house around the block from our elementary school. One of the girls in our group was a little thug and would occasionally steal our […]

I didn’t eat chocolate for a year once. Admittedly, my anti-confection atonement was bizarre and completely vanity driven but at the time it felt good to exercise a little personal self-control. Before you are wowed by my efforts too much though I should point out that I had one caveat to my chocolate ban. I […]

My friend Anna instant messaged me on Wednesday afternoon to let me know that a co-worker had found a recipe for bacon cupcakes in The New York Times. Anna really wanted to make them for a brunch party she was attending on Sunday morning. The only problem was that the recipe was giving her serious […]

Before the question is even posed I’ll just go ahead and tell you that, yes, these do taste eerily similar to York Peppermint Patties. The recipe is incredibly simple and also incredibly sticky.  I’ve thoroughly wiped my island down three times since making the candy on Sunday morning and it still has some sort of […]

Do not under any circumstances allow me to make these again. They’re just too good, too rich, and too addictive to have around. Just in case I forget this public plea, I’m going to send myself an email from FutureMe.org. I’ll schedule it to arrive during the holidays next year, and urge myself to make […]

First of all, these taste spectacular! If you only make one cookie to share with friends and family this holiday season then this recipe definitely would get my vote. I liken them to something along the lines of a soft and chewy Girl Scout Thin Mint. Andes Crème de Menth candies are added to the […]

The Wicked Whoopies Store

September 19, 2008

I’ve mentioned it before, but when I go home to Maine there are two things I have to eat while I’m there and they have absolutely nothing to do with lobster or blueberries. I always make a point to have an Italian Sandwich from Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop, and I also have to have a […]

TCHO Beta Stuffed Cookies

August 29, 2008

The lovely purveyors of TCHO were kind enough to send me three samples of their chocolate flavors: Chocolatey (which I’d reviewed in a previous beta version), Fruity, and Nutty. After having a few squares and submitting our feedback online CK and I still had quite a bit of chocolate kicking around in our fridge. So […]
