Last Minute Christmas Cookie Guide

23 Dec

ChristmasCookieGuide
It is t-minus two days to Christmas and you haven’t baked your cookies yet? What kind of masochist are you? Oh my bad, you’re actually still looking for a parking space at Target. Your commitment is admirable, but now you have previous few hours to get that cookie platter stacked that you promised to bring to the party.

Red’s got your back. Now, depending on your situation, here is what I recommend… Continue reading

Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies

Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead

It’s the most awful time of the year. Nope, not talking about Thanksgiving, because I love Thanksgiving. Not talking about Christmas, I love Christmas. Not talking about fall, winter etc. I’m talking about shopping season.

I’m not against shopping as a whole, I just dread this time of year when everyone is shopping all at once, and sometimes being kinda dickish about it. That said, I’ll admit, I can get flustered over things that might seem trivial to others. Continue reading

Smore Brownie Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Something wonderful has happened. You know, like when it’s a rainy day and there just happens to be a Law & Order SVU marathon. Or when your favorite running shoe, in your size, goes on sale. Or when you run out of mascara exactly when Clinique bonus time starts.

You are on the edge of your seat now wondering what happened.

S’more met brownie. THAT’S what happened. Mind. Blown. Continue reading

Gluten Free Brownies

Gluten Free Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Friends are a basic need of human life. I would say third after air and water. Food is important too, but as long as you have good friends, they’ll have a granola bar.

Friends take five-day road trips with you. Friends make it okay to buy an entire DQ ice cream cake for no reason. Friends make you mix tapes cds. Friends heckle the green knight with you at Medieval Times. Friends let you eat their pizza crust. Friends don’t let you leave the bar with that dude on the motorcycle. Friends clean and bandage the road rash on your bum. Friends help you out of clothes you become trapped in, in a dressing room. Friends get naked with you in a bath tub, film it, and turn it into a school project.

Friends ask you to bake for their wedding because they know you’re kinda obsessed with baking and have a blog about it.

Friends accept your invitation to bake for a wedding even if it’s gluten-free and they’ve never baked anything gluten-free before. Continue reading

Brownie Goody Bars

Brownie Goodie Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
I enjoy history. I enjoy learning about the origins of things. There’s always good stories to be found in history.

I enjoy Slutty Brownies. I enjoy pondering the origin of them. And I think I may have stubbled upon the “missing link,” if you will, of the modern slutty brownie.

I imagine the origin of these was a church potluck with two nuns, Sister Mary and Sister Grace, unable to decide what to bring. Sister Grace wanted to make brownies, Sister Mary wanted to make rice krispie treats. They both quabled about it, as nuns will do, and started going on their own way, baking their own thing. Continue reading

P’Nutty Slutty Brownies

P'Nutty Slutty Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Oh slutty brownies, you triple-threat temptress. Tempting everyone to eat you, but also tempting me to find new combos for you. Maybe it was those damn peanut butter cup s’more bars that got me craving the peanut butter and chocolate combo, maybe I was reminiscing about elementary school lunches, but one thing lead to another and I might have put another Little Debbie classic betwixt cookie and brownie. I have no shame. Continue reading

Vegan Chocolate Stout Brownies

Vegan Chocolate Stout Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
After two weeks of Paleo recipes, I thought I’d freak you all out by posting something vegan. What can I say, I like to keep people on their toes.

I find it crazy that the vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe I posted months ago has so far been the most popular recipe on my blog. I guess vegans are in need of good recipes. These brownies more than qualify. They are decadent in every sense of the word. They don’t require anything super fancy (unless you don’t stock flax seed and what kind of crazy person doesn’t have flax seed in their pantry) and there’s no way you’d know they were *gasp* vegan. Continue reading

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
We’ve already discussed my love/hate relationship with cream cheese. We’ve also discussed my feelings on the use of boxed mixes. So, let’s skip the formalities and just declare that Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies are delicious. And they are red, which makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day. And they’re super quick and easy, which makes them perfect for completion by tomorrow.

Now, Betty Crocker calls these “Red Velvet Espresso and Cream Swirled Brownies,” but I choose to leave “espresso” out of the title, because I couldn’t taste it at all in these brownies. According to redhead math, the subtraction of “espresso” from the title allows me to insert the word “cheesecake.” Continue reading

Espresso Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies

Espresso Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Valentines Day and Easter are my favorite food holidays. Why? Chocolate.

True, Thanksgiving is all about feasting (or being thankful, whatever), but there’s more savory than sweet there. Yes, Christmas has its endless supply of cookies, but there’s never enough with chocolate. And of course, there’s Halloween, for eating candy while half naked, but everyone takes the chocolate first and soon you’re left with lame Laffy Taffy and Nerds.

But not Valentine’s Day and Easter, oh no. These are the holidays that insist you give me chocolate and you give it to me now, in mass quantities. A stray conversation heart may sneak its way into your stash this week, but those are easily crushed. Continue reading

Dirty Slutty Brownies

Dirty Slutty Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Remember that slutty brownie recipe? Remember how I said the variations were endless on how to pair the cookie dough, cookie and brownies flavors? Well… I went there. I went to a dark and dirty place and I took that innocent maiden Little Debbie with me (although maybe she’s gone all Lindsay Lohan now that Hostess caved). If you are a chocolate fiend, if the words “too rich” are not part of your vocabulary, if you take your brownies darker than your coffee, then these are for you. I dub them: Dirty Slutty Brownies.

Warning: these are probably illegal in 20 states. And if not, they are most definitely the scourge of the American Diabetes Association, Weight Watchers, the National Dental Association and your ass. Continue reading
