Buttermilk waffles

Buttermilk Waffles

For some reason these were a dinner food growing up, never a breakfast food.

Cheese soup

Cheese Soup

This is a long-time family favorite. I don't even know where it came from originally. It's always a go-to when the vegetarian cousins come to visit.

Chocolate cake

Chocolate Cake

This is my go-to cake for all occasions. Who needs a special occasion to bake a cake?


Chocolate Chip Muffins

It's on the complicated side, but it's worth the effort in the end, I think. At least I'm not a mommy blog making you read my life's story before you get to the recipe

Chocolate drop cookies

Chocolate Drop Cookies

There's nothing about these that's particularly Christmassy, but they're Christmas cookies. Don't ask why.

Granola bar

Chocolate Granola Bars

I wanted a chewy granola bar to take on bike rides that wasn't based on peanuts, marshmallows, or fruit. Luckily, every single mommy blog has a granola bar recipe.

M&M cookies

Chocolate Mint Drop Cookies

I have no idea where this recipe came from originally, but it's become a family staple for Christmas (which is the only time you can actually find the mint M&Ms for this).

Chocolate pie

Chocolate Pie

It won't be long before you figure out that almost all of these desserts have chocolate in them.
