I'm getting ready for a big bake sale this weekend for Cookies for Kids Cancer with my daughter's school. To keep things easy, we decided to go with just chocolate chip cookies. Any and all chocolate chip cookies. So that means we have chocolate chocolate chips, white chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip, gluten free, and even a few brownie/cookie cups.
My contribution was 60 fruity, cake mix cookies with white chocolate chips and these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pops! I hope that everyone loves them!

I have a new love of Macarons. I think I've finally figured out the trick to them. I've made them a few times now and each time they get easier and easier.
My best tip is to WEIGH your ingredients. It's not enough to measure 1 cup, you must weigh your almond flour and powdered sugar. If you don't have a kitchen food scale, get one! They aren't that expensive and once you have it, you'll use it all the time.

It's Fall!! It's Fall!! And Fall means lots of pumpkin, gourds, and squashes! I dedicate this post to all of the misshapen, odd colored, strange textured, and made-fun-of gourds out there. I feel for ya. I can identify with ya. I think that your colors make you special and that your weird bumps and bruises give you character.
When I head off to the farmers market or local pumpkin patch, I want to take all of the strange and unusual pumpkins home. I want to put them on center stage for everyone to look at and marvel over. They need a place of honor to show off how wonderfully different they were created.

Since I'm all about EASY, how about these easy Halloween Cupcakes for your weekend snack? They start off with your favorite cupcakes, then get a super funky frosting decoration and finally topped off with a Cadbury Screme Egg! So easy, so yummy, so packed full of sugar for all the crazy kids!
I love it!
You've gotta be a fan of the Easter Creme Egg to enjoy this treat. I personally love them and try my hardest not to induldge... but...for the sake of the blog, I just had to pick them up!

Phew! It's been one of those days! Ah, who am I kidding? It's been one of those years! You know what will make my life just a bit easier? Simple treats. I don't think it gets much easier than Chocolate Dipped Cherries.
However, these chocolate cherries are all dressed up for Halloween! I found some orange Roland Cherriesand knew they would be perfect for a fun, quick and easy snack.
These would be great to add to a cake or cupcakes. Place them on you Halloween treat table or just enjoy them as it. That's what I did.

Did you have a great weekend? We were super lazy, slept in, watched TV, and basically vegged out. It was great. We finally got out of the house today and drove all the way to Berkeley Springs, WV. It's a very historic area and home to George Washington's "bath tub". I think that's pretty cool!
Another week, another Monday, another party! Thanks so much to everyone coming back week after week. It's fun to go through all the new blogs and visit with old friends. I really appreciate everyone coming by!
This week on Dieter's Downfall, I'm making a Chocolate Zuccotto - also known as a Bomb Cake. I got the recipe while I was in Hawaii and got to visit the Four Seasons Hualalai for dessert at their Beach Tree restaurant. It was amazing and I wanted to recreate it at home.
It starts off with Amaretti Cookies, buttermilk ice cream and then the zuccotto! It's going to be epic!
