Happy 1 Year Blogger-versary To Me!

Good Saturday night everyone. Yowza, how fast does a year go?!! It has been so much fun sharing my recipe creations with all of you who read them! I have learned so much this last year. Thanks for all of you who comment. It really makes my day to read all of your comments!


So, in celebration of my 1 year blogger-versary, I have created the best blondies in town, in my opinion! They were inspired by my visit to Chelsea Market during my recent trip to NY. They had a fab little brownie shop called the Fat Witch where I bought a white chocolate blondie that was heavenly! I quickly got to work in my kitchen and came up with my own version. I was hesitant at first about adding the raspberries, but whoa they are good tucked inside with the white chocolate.


Take a peek and make yourself some blondies!

Since it’s a celebration, seriously add the ice cream!

Raspberry White Chocolate Blondies

¼ Cup butter


¾ Cup white chocolate chips


½ Cup sugar


¼ Cup brown sugar


1 Cup flour


½ teaspoon baking powder


½ teaspoon salt

    Thanks everyone for your sweet comments! I enjoy reading them.

    You could absoulutely buy your own white chocolate and chop it up. I just buy whatever is at the grocery store. No specific brand. Good luck!

  9. Laura

    What white chocolate chips do you buy? I have not found a brand that I like. I almost think it would be better to buy my own white chocolate and just chop it up.
