Baking has always been a stress reliever for Nick and me. More-so for Nick, which works out well for me because everything he makes is perfection. Combine my birthday and Mother’s Day with quarantine and that adds up to a whole lot of baking in our house…..
Skillet Cookie. This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten. I am not exaggerating! And it’s pretty easy to make.
Brown Butter Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies. This has always been one of my favorite things to bake. I made a big batch and put them in the freezer so we can just have one or two at a time.
No Fuss Cinnamon Rolls. BEST CINNAMON ROLLS EVER! Nick made these for me for my birthday. Lucky me, there are a bunch left over in the freezer.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars. Definitely the easiest recipe of the bunch. It took one bowl and I had all the ingredients on hand. Delicious too!
S‘mores Ice Cream Sandwiches. I don’t have a recipe link for this because Nick made it up! It involves homemade marshmallow ice cream, a layer of chocolate, covered in a graham cracker crust. Nick made them for me for Mother’s Day and we still have some left, the best kind of gift!
Carmine’s Chocolate Torte. Have you ever been to Carmine’s in New York City? It’s one of my family’s favorite restaurants. I cook a lot of recipes out of their cookbook, and I got this chocolate torte out of it too. It has espresso in it, which adds a lot of flavor, and Nick topped it with his homemade whipped cream!
