Christmas Cookies -3

Italian Lemon Drop Cookies

These cookies are different than your average cookie. They are kind of spongy, cakey, and very soft. Robb told me the dough tasted more like cake batter than cookie dough. And I agreed with him on that.


Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Summer is definitely here, and it is HOT. We went swimming in the creek to cool off. It was beautiful, and the only thing that was missing was the fresh-squeezed lemonade.


Chocolate Blackberry Cream Cookies

It is just not that difficult to come up with a reason to purchase berries. I’m never quite sure what to do with them, but it never takes me long to figure it out.


Rocky Road No-Bake Cookies

I ran over my niece with a scooter. And then she lobbied me for cookies. What cookie says we were in a scooter accident on vacation? Well, Rocky Road, obviously.


Triple Chocolate Chunk Oreo Cookies

I normally try not to make chocolate cookies twice in a row. But not today. I’ve been wanting to make Triple Chocolate cookies for some time now, and this week my patience ran out.

Simple Peanut Butter Cookies

They seriously take next to no time and about the same amount of effort. I especially enjoyed haphazardly wrapping my chocolate squares into a piece of parchment paper and breaking them up with a meat mallet.


Tropical Cracker Topping

The pineapple and coconut remind me of the beach. The pier. The sand. The breeze. It actually makes me wish I was back in California right now.


Easy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Let’s face it. Everything is better with chocolate chips. It’s worth having a few packages hanging out in the pantry… just in case!


National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day today! It might be the greatest food holiday EVER. At least, it’s the only one I get truly excited about celebrating.


Chocolate Torte

Our son was super excited to make this torte for the family. It’s a rich and dense chocolate cake, so naturally, I was in love with it immediately.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Pops

This year I wanted to make it easy for everyone to celebrate Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, so I put my chocolate chip cookies on a stick.
