Duet: Peppermint Bark / John Denver & The Muppets “A Christmas Together”

The food: I came across a cute silicone candy mold from Good Cook at the grocer after a workout, when I felt like I had “earned” a sweet treat. I don’t decorate for the holidays, and definitely don’t cook for them. Yet for some reason, I bought this mold and a live 12-inch Christmas tree. Total impulse buys. Although the mold came with a recipe for peppermint bark,[…]

Duet: Sweet Cornbread / Lynyrd Skynyrd “Second Helping”

Duet: Chocolate Chip Cookies / Cyndi Lauper “She’s So Unusual”

The food: Sometimes you just want ooey gooey, all-American chocolate chip cookies. When the craving strikes, I like to bake rather than buy because homemade tastes so much better and they are really easy to make. I created this super-simple recipe by combining several I’ve used over the years. There are only nine ingredients and everything is basically a measurement of one or two, so it’s not terribly difficult to follow[…]
