When you try this awesome concoction, it will forever shame you for having been tempted to buy the artificially flavored icing from the store. French buttercream is distinguished from Italian buttercream by the use of yolks rather than whites. Italian buttercream is the supremely white icing you see on fancy cakes. German buttercream uses pastry cream, which is thickened vanilla sauce. They’re all good, but I like the richness of the yolks in this icing.

smoothie
What is a smoothie bowl? Although they may seem similar to a smoothie, they are actually quite unique. A smoothie bowl generally has a thicker ice cream-like consistency and can easily hold all your favorite toppings.This is one of my favorite breakfasts of all time. Every ingredient is considered a super food (yes, even the raw cacao powder), so you can enjoy your fruity and chocolaty breakfast without any guilt and still be full until lunch. You can even slip in a handful of kale or spinach to add some greens into your day without actually tasting it!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
I'll be the first to admit it: I swore One Girl Cookies would never make a chocolate chip cookie. Why bother? There were a million variations out in the world, many of them pretty tasty. My feeling was "Why reinvent the wheel?" Instead, I wanted to focus on interesting cookies that were more reminiscent of European treats. Well, our doors had not been open for more than a week before we had our first batch of Marys whipped up. The crowds (most of them under five years of age) demanded them. And so, we baked them. The moral of the story: Never say never. You may just end up eating your own words (literally, in my case!) Most people have a strong opinion about the style of their chocolate chip cookies. Crispy, chewy, or cakey? Semisweet, bittersweet, or milk? Big or small? Thin or thick? For us, it's all about cakey, bittersweet, small, and thick. Enough said.

Biscotti means "twice baked" in Italian. First you form the crumbly dough into one stiff mass and bake it whole. Then you let it cool, slice it, and bake it again at a lower temperature. That’s what gives biscotti an almost crackerlike quality, which goes especially well with coffee. This triple-chocolate double-baked treat is dipped in a dark chocolate coating with sprinkles on top. Dip it in your coffee and then pop it in your mouth. Click here to see Our 50 Best Cookie Recipes

Today we celebrate cocoa powder of all varieties. Cocoa comes from the bean of the cacao tree. The trees grow in many parts of the world, but the earliest known cultivation of cocoa was in the Amazon, where archaeologists have found evidence of its use dating back to 1900 BC. More famously, the Mayans were known to have used the cocoa bean as food, and currency in fertility rites, while the Aztecs ground it into a bitter drink. Both cultures believed cocoa to be linked to the gods, but it wasn’t until the 1700s that the taxonomer Linnaeus aptly named the source of cocoa beans Theabroma Cacao, meaning "gift of the gods." Less sweet than some, these crinkle cookies are absolutely loaded with cocoa and just a hint of rum flavor. Because the cookies are made with baking powder, I make these with Dutch-processed cocoa and get fat, fudgy cookies every time.
