Our Favorite Red Velvet Recipes (Happy Father’s Day, Dad!)

Growing up, our dad would occasionally grill some steaks and make homemade ice cream in our old-fashioned old cream maker, but it was our mom (Sharon) who did the cooking, and certainly the baking. We always had lots of goodies in the house, and my dad loved nothing more than her red velvet treats. Then, […]

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I love recipes that do not require me to turn on the oven. The stove top is bad enough when it’s 100 degrees outside! Here in Virginia it is not 100 degrees outside yet. But I’m sure I can think up another excuse to make these no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies, right? Right! That’s the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I always like to try new recipes, which is one of the reasons I like Pinterest so much. It’s an endless source of new recipes to test out. Today’s cookies were inspired by a recipe I pinned was for chocolate raspberry cookies from Paula Dean. I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have the […]

Chocolate-Dipped Hazelnut Shortbread

Every year, I use the holidays as an opportunity to test out new cookie recipes – and this year was no exception. My annual Christmas party featured several new recipes, most from Pinterest of course. I didn’t hear any of my friends complaining! One of the Pinterest recipes I tested out was this one for […]

Flower Sugar Cookies

Once in a while, a seemingly awesome idea from Pinterest doesn’t work out. But it’s awesome recipes and ideas like these Flower Sugar Cookies one that keep me coming back for more and more. When I first saw a pinned image of someone cutting a ball of dough with a pair of scissors, it immediately […]

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies

With the holidays coming up, I’ve been on the look out recently for new easy cookie recipes on Pinterest. I’m willing to test out any cookie that sounds yummy, especially when the recipe involves spicing up a cake or cookie mix. It can’t get any easier than that! Remember Allison’s So-Easy-You-Want-to-Kiss-Someone Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins? Two┬áingredients. […]

Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookies

Betty Crocker has some great recipes out there. When I started cooking, my mom (Lena) gave me a Betty Crocker cookbook containing all of the basics, almost the same as the one she had when she started cooking. Two years ago, I was in line at the grocery store and I spied Betty Crocker’s Christmas […]

Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies

I love red velvet. I love cookies. Oh and did I mention I love white chocolate too? This recipe for red velvet thumbprints seemed like an obvious choice to test out. Plus it’s not your normal, everyday chocolate chip cookie. It’s something that’s a little different and out of the ordinary. The best part is […]

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

We’re all about quick and easy recipes here on the PinterTest Kitchen, and this is one of my quickest/easiest. I made my first batch last Christmas and they were such a hit that they are now a go-to recipe in my arsenal. The credit actually goes to my mom (Sharon) for finding this recipe, but […]

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I think this is my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are chewy and delicious. And they freeze well, too. I pinned this recipe from Jackie Gaccione who pinned it from PinCookie.com. Just make sure you check the pantry for the chocolate chips, because at my house some people get these chocolate cravings and […]

PinterMess: Nasty Jello Cookies

Today’s recipe is not one I recommend. Not at all, actually. These Jello Cookies were downright nasty. Seriously, that doesn’t even sound good. I don’t know what I was thinking. Jello cookies? Blech. So why post it? Because I keep seeing people repinning this recipe on Pinterest! At least three or four times a week, […]
