Browned butter salted Nutella-stuffed chocolate chip cookies

Every now and then I come across a recipe that I find a little questionable. And other times, I come across recipes that just don't work for me. As my blog will attest, I generally don't publish posts or pictures of things that outright fail. Those baking atrocities usually end up at work where I have an abundance of folks more than happy to get rid of any evidence that something has gone awry in my kitchen.

Healthier summer treats

With summer officially here, and most people trying to slim down and get bathing suit-ready, I've been trying to be a little more conscious about making healthy treats to bring into work (with great difficulty naturally). I've snuck oatmeal into my chocolate chip cookies, and have substituted yogurt for the fat in some recipes. Though some people prefer these healthy alternatives, or substitutions, sometimes I feel its just more satisfying to eat a full-fat dessert, but just less of it. Moderation peoples, moderation.
