It’s Memorial Day, which I personally consider to be the start of summer. I know it’s technically on June 20, but with the weather being so beautiful and the last box officially unpacked in our new apartment, it felt like a call for an official summer kickoff. And this key lime pie recipe seemed like the best way to celebrate.
Okay I know I’m on a crazy cake fix lately but I can’t help myself. I blame being stuck at home for weeks on end—and soon to be months, unfortunately. And while my typical go-to dessert is ice cream, right now I’m having a love affair with cake. Especially this chocolate mug cake recipe that literally only takes 90 seconds to cook in the microwave.
Even though chocolate chip cookies seem like they would be easy to make, to me, they’ve always had this mystical unicorn-like quality to them. Because no matter how hard you try, you really can never perfect it in the same way Tollhouse has. Test kitchens have relentlessly experimented with different combinations of butter, flour, and baking products. Yet no matter what the conclusion is, never once have those recipes proven successful to my *brilliant* chocolate chip cookie secret. Are you ready for it? Before baking the cookies, broil the cookie dough.
