chocolate chip cookie bars + baking without an oven

hi, friends! it's been over a year since I've updated this blog. I know that some of you have been following along all my Taiwan adventures with my new blog, but for those of you who are only here for the cookies might be interested to know I have finally [!] posted a new recipe. head on over to check it out.

I also wanted to mention that this week, my pop rocks cake pop recipe is featured in an article on bonappetite.com ... kindof a big deal. check out slide #8 [well, check out all the slides, but #8 is mine]

learning to bake without all my beloved kitchen gadgets [and also without gluten] while adjusting to expat life has certainly been a challenge. but I've learned that if you get creative you can bake just about anywhere with anything... including making pie dough by cutting butter with a cheese grater and using a wine bottle as a rolling pin. I hope to be sharing more recipes in the near future.

thanks for stopping by, xo
