Hi I'm Rachel--a chocoholic and Manhattanite baking up a storm in my tiny apartment kitchen. My focus is mainly on sweets, though since a girl can't live on chocolate chip cookies alone (believe me I've tried) savory recipes show up here from time to time as well. My favorite things to bake are celebration cakes like this one, this one and this one. I also love making muffins, caramel corn and ice cream, but my desert island dessert recipe would be these cookies. Hands down. No contest. Game over.
