Low-Sugar Chocolate Egg Yolk Cookies

When you use as many eggs as we do, quality matters. Eggs are one of my “splurge” items at the grocery store, with  free-range options being my top pick. They just taste so much better! Have you ever tried free-range eggs? The yolks are typically a darker yellow color, and the whites as not as […]

Hot Cocoa Cookies #Choctoberfest

I think this recipe is the most chocolatey recipe of all time! It has chocolate pudding mix, hot cocoa mix, cocoa powder, white chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips. Chocolate to the max!!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cookies

My mom makes the BEST chocolate peanut butter cake. The cake itself is chocolate, but then she tops it with peanut butter icing…. omg, SO GOOD y’all. And I’m not usually a big cake person. When Better Body Foods sent me some PBfit powdered peanut butter to try, I immediately thought about that cake. I […]

Shamrock Mint Sugar Cookies

Here in Norfolk, we take St. Patrick’s Day seriously! The neighborhood where I live, Ocean View, has a HUGE St. Patrick’s Day parade every year. We’re talking bagpipes, step dancers, and lots of random people dressed in green from head to toe. We were even in the parade last year with the animal shelter where […]

Chocolate Covered Shortbread Hearts #FoodBloggerLove

Back at Christmas Allison gave me a HUGE recipe book with over 400 recipes for cookies, brownies, biscuits, and other desserts.

Chocolate Coconut Oil Cookies

I’m having a bit of a love affair with cocoa lately… Back in October, Rodelle was a blog sponsor here on The PinterTest Kitchen for #Choctoberfest, and they sent us some high-quality Dutch processed baking cocoa to test out.

Chocolate Orange Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

I love the flavors of chocolate and orange together, especially around the holidays. It always makes me think of Terry’s chocolate oranges (YUM). I always thought chocolate and orange was a weird combination, but my dad liked the chocolate oranges. One time, I tried a slice and OH MAMA I was hooked ever since! I […]

Nutty Florentine Cookies (Gluten-Free) #FBLCookieExchange

I love this time of year. When I was a kid, I can remember being SO excited about Christmas break. I was a pretty nerdy kid and liked learning, so it wasn’t necessarily that I didn’t want to go to school. I just was always super excited for Christmas. I love seeing people’s faces when […]

A PinterTest Kitchen Wedding Reception

My wedding day back in June was perfect. On August 19, we had a reception in Pennsylvania, and it was even better. What is better than perfect? I don’t know, but that’s how I felt on my “second” wedding day! I wanted to share with you some pictures from the day. We baked three flavors […]

Mammy Heckert (my great grandmother) was known for these homemade caramel icing cookies. So much that our family simply calls these Mammy Heckert Cookies. Actually, the whole town where we grew up knows […]

M&M Cookies

If you know anything about us Boyer women, you know we love a good cookie recipe. Growing up, my mother (Sharon) often had some sort of homemade cookies in the house… even if they were hidden away so we didn’t attempt to eat them all in one sitting. It was actually pretty rare to have store bought cookies […]
