We love raw cookie dough.

It reminds us of our childhood, when we used to like the spoon clean after our mothers would make a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies. We almost like it better than when the cookies are actually baked. But, eating raw cookie dough isn’t exactly safe. There are raw eggs in there, and we all know what that could mean. Salmonella! The stomach flu! Not exactly worth it if you ask us.

Kristen Tomlan came up with a genius idea during a girls’ weekend in Philadelphia. She stopped by and grabbed a tub of cookie dough with her friends, but instead of scooping out the cookie dough onto a baking sheet and popping it in the oven, they ended up devouring it all. Tomian turned into something that we all can enjoy. She opened in New York’s Greenwich Village. “I love the process of trying new flavors and recipes — the journey of taking raw ingredients and transforming them into a delicious creation that can be shared,” said Tomlan. “I find joy being in the kitchen and baking treats to share with the people in my life. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy the joy of sharing DŌ with your loved ones.”

DŌ offers a number of classic flavors, including signature chocolate chip, sugar cookie, brownie batter, oatmeal M&M, and commando — a basic dough with nothing added. There’s also seasonal flavors like red velvet, cake batter, and sugar and kisses. From there, you can add extra ingredients, like chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, salted caramel, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and more.

Simply pick a flavor, add any extra toppings, and have it served in a cone or a cup, and there you go, everyone’s favorite treat ready for you to eat.

Why you can (and should) add bourbon right to your banana bread batter without cooking it first
Bourbon alcohol cooks out as banana bread bakes - genius!
Banana bread

Cooking with booze is one of the best ways to achieve a robust and delicious complexity of flavor. For any number of dishes, we braise, poach, deglaze, and sauce with everything in the liquor cabinet, from wine to tequila to rum, and our food is better for it. And while you may have incorporated beer into your cupcakes or poached pear in a simmering pool of red wine, you may not yet fully appreciate the flavor spirits can bring to baked goods. Banana bread is one of the most delicious, comforting, feels-like-home treats there is, and it's hard to imagine it getting any better than it already is in its mildly sweet, toasty perfection. Enter bourbon.

It turns out that splashing a bit of bourbon into banana bread batter can take Grandma's recipe and elevate it to something one might find in an upscale restaurant. Here's why.

Did you know you can cure prosciutto at home?
Making this meaty treat at home is easier than you think
Slicing prosciutto

Prosciutto is a favorite ingredient of many, not only because of its beautifully silky texture and incredible flavor, but for its culinary diversity. Prosciutto gives an instant upgrade to anything you happen to be eating. Boring sandwich? A few pieces will transform it into an Italian masterpiece. Cheese board looking a little humdrum? Pile on some silky slices and no one will be able to leave that board alone. Kids won't eat their asparagus? Wrap it in this stuff and watch the magic happen.

And while we love prosciutto for its savory, salty, briny, meaty goodness, making it at home probably isn't something many of us have attempted at home. Until now. Keep reading to learn how.
