double dark chocolate chip cookies

A recipe card that resides in my handmade cookbook for chocolate chocolate chip cookies is one of my favorites. It also makes up more dough than I have patience for these days. This is my take on a true small batch recipe that makes only four cookies and takes very little time to put together. || Read more

Katharine Hepburn Brownies

I remember vividly, watching an interview a few years ago between Katharine Hepburn and Dick Cavett on his show in 1973 and being completely inspired and mesmerized by this amazing woman who gave zero shits about what anyone else thought.

As she sat awkwardly in the chair across from her very first on-TV interview, the one reason that will always stick with me as to why she decided to do the interview was that “she likes to do things that challenge her”. Watch it if you feel interested or skip ahead to the part with delicious, gooey, dark chocolate. And no. Katharine was not related to Audrey.   || Read more

small batch lemon cookies
Good Pup

My pup, Duke, being a good boy with my makeshift photo shoot.

Lemons! One of the five C’s of Arizona, citrus can be found just about everywhere this time of year. Lucky for this girl, my aunt + uncle have a lemon tree in their yard so I have an abundant supply of one of my favorite kitchen staples.

This cookie recipe uses both the juice + zest from lemons and the result is a soft + almost cake-like sugar cookie. Tip: Using cold butter/margarine and the 4 minutes of creaming the butter + sugar is a must. || Read more

Cornbread muffins

Naturally, I cook for one or two people at a time because I hate wasting food + it’s simpler for me. This small batch cornbread muffin recipe solely exists so I do not eat 2 dozen of these delicious muffins in one sitting!

This is a one bowl recipe and comes together quickly. You’ll just need to make sure you have a few things in your pantry when you want to whip up these quick muffins to go with chili or really any meal you desire. || Read more

chewy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

These delicious, easy to make cookies went over so well with friends + family that there was zero time to grab a just-out-of-the-oven shot! This makes about 3 dozen cookies but if you’re a huge fan of fresh baked goodness, make up the cookie balls ahead of time and freeze. When you’re craving a cookie, set out a few cookie balls on a baking sheet to thaw, preheat your oven + bake!

Another reason I love this recipe? It’s all about the ½ (for the most part) + it uses only one bowl! || Read more

Funfetti cupcakes

My friend Hayley requested Funfetti cake for her birthday a few weeks ago. Normally you’d go out, buy a box of cake mix and a tub of frosting and call it a day. I wanted to make the whole thing from scratch so I went searching through a bunch blogs and found this perfect little recipe. The result is a balance between a not too sweet, slightly dense cupcake and a delicious, light frosting to top it all off! Besides, life is more fun when you’re buying a tube of jimmie sprinkles! The cake recipe makes a little over a dozen cupcakes!

The frosting will make a lot. I stored half in a freezer baggie in the freezer for another time.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Oatmeal scotchies

When I started transitioning my recipe book from high plains to high altitude, my mother’s oatmeal scotchies were high on the list to be converted first.

The recipe below is simple and works great whether you’re somewhere in the Midwest or living high in the Rockies.

More brown sugar than white sugar keeps them soft and a little bit more flour allows for them to rise and stay even after they’ve cooled. The combo of cinnamon and butterscotch is simply perfection but feel free to get adventurous and mix half butterscotch, half chocolate chips and maybe even some dried cranberries! || Read more
