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

Vegan Blondies

Vegan Chocolate Chip Blondies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Vegans are like rabbits. They eat carrots and they multiply… you know, like rabbits. I wonder if their feet when cut off and attached to key chains are lucky? Being that they are vegan, they would probably disapproved of me testing this theory.

I swear my circle of vegan friends has doubled this year, and as much as those rascally rabbits love my Chocolate Stout Brownies and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, I’m in the middle of my “bar stage.” Don’t worry, I’m not frequently bars by myself ordering cheap beer and eating peanuts for dinner, this is far more sinister: have you noticed pretty much all of September was bar cookie posts? What can I say, I’m lazy. I like not having to wait to scoop out another dozen rounds of cookie dough and not having to prepare parchment paper for cookie sheets. Continue reading

Chocolate Revel Bars

Chocolate Revel Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
You’ll forgive me if this post is similar to the last one right? You wouldn’t deny an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie in bar form would you?

I told you that most of my baked goods need to be ultra portable, so I often resort to bars since they: a) pack easier, and b) hold up better to rough-housing Delta baggage handlers. Continue reading

Monster Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
There are many things monstrous about these cookies:
1. They require a full jar of peanut butter
2. You’ll need a stick of butter in addition to the jar of peanut butter
3. They require four cups of oats
4. You add 1.5 cups of any and all mix-ins you like
5. The dough is monstrously addictive

Oh yeah, and it’s a Paula Deen recipe and some of you may think she is a monster. Continue reading

Backpacker Bars

Backpacker Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
What happens when you combine blondies and a granola bar? Backpacker bars! You thought I was going to say blondola bars didn’t you?

I believe the fine folks at Betty Crocker dubbed these “backpacker bars” because a) they give you “energy” on a camping journey through the wilderness and b) they make a great backpack snack for the kiddies. We can debate the accuracy of these assumptions, including if peanuts, chocolate, sugar and flour really make for lasting “energy” or a good “snack,” but one thing that is not up for debate on this blog: oatmeal + chocolate + peanuts = delicious.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
I know I just posted Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl cookies to the blog last week… and P’Nutty Slutty Brownies the week before that.. and Peanut Butter Cup S’more Bars before that, but is it too soon to post another peanut butter and chocolate recipe? Am I becoming a two-bit chocolate peanut butter pony?

I stumbled across this recipe looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe and, hello, when you look at the photo how can you NOT Pin It and bake them? Lucky for me (and now you) these are as good as they looked, which can often be a rare occurrence where Pinning is concerned. Continue reading

Ode to the Egg

21 May

So I fell off the map again for two weeks – what you want to do about it? It’s a blog, not a job. I went on vacation. Sort of.

I was playing with Porsches.
