What is your favorite dessert? I generally don’t eat a lot of sweets, but I do have a short list of favorites (cheesecake, sticky toffee pudding, and cookies) so whenever anyone offers me a cookie the answer is always, “UM, YES.” Today’s recipe is a play on the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe with a […]
Today kicks off a new series I am doing that takes us back to the basics. Because at Away From the Box, we literally stray from the box. I aim to make everything homemade. (Everything?

Well, I’m a few days early for the first day of Autumn, but I don’t care. I’ve been dreaming of pumpkin spice since August. Now, like my Nutella Stuffed French Toast Cups, these have the same basic recipe with a foolproof method. Chop, mix, fill, bake, done. Easy as pie. Or, more like, easy as […]
