As homesick college kids craving comfort food that didn’t come from a can, my then-boyfriend (now hubby) and I frequented Boston Market. Our stops there were often after some blistering cold walk through the city, slushing in like wet dogs and stuffing our faces...

… Or one sweets lovin’ mama-to-be. These have to be the most fabulous chocolate cupcakes I’ve ever made from scratch. Super soft, fluffy and absolutely decadent with a dollop (okay, more like a heap) of homemade Nutella frosting. They come together in less than...

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars
