Kitchen Sink Cookies

I used butterscotch chips, nuts, coconut, m&m’s, and of course oats. However, I think they would be fantastic with some raisins or dates, maybe a little orange zest and cinnamon, or peanut butter candies. Honestly, you can just use whatever you like, or whatever you have in your pantry.

Caramel Corn Snack Mix

This caramel corn is more crunchy than sticky. As it should be. You still get that awesome caramely flavor without the fear of emergency dental work. And, because the Chex cereal tends to hold more caramel than the popcorn, there are actually a few bites that are caramel-free. Or caramel light, I guess.

Red Velvet Waffle Iron Cookies

I love cake mix cookies. And waffle iron cookies. I always think waffle iron cookies are best eaten warm. I like to let the icing melt onto the cookie. That combination of warm cookie + cool icing is heavenly. Mmmmmm.

Onion Dill Oyster Crackers

This particular flavor combo was suggested to me by a friend. A brilliant friend. A friend who knows what’s good. I was kind of surprised, actually. You can taste both the onion and the dill in these crackers, but the combination of the two flavors was something else entirely.

Double-Decker Pavlova with Chocolate

This pavlova, by the way, is the perfect classical dessert, because it’s sort of classical itself. It’s named after a Russian ballerina. And, just like her, it’s delicate and fabulous.

Vanilla Buttermilk Cookies

There is really no way to turn down cookies made with buttermilk. Maybe it’s the acidic quality of buttermilk that breaks everything down, and makes it soft and flavorful and amazing, I don’t know. And I don’t care, as long as I have some buttermilk baked goods in the house.

Coconut Truffles

When I spied these completely adorable Bunny Tails recently, I knew I had to give them a try myself. Partly because they’re adorable, but mostly because they are coconut. I can’t wait to make these for our Easter celebration!

Peanut Butter Granola Bites

One of my alternatives to junk-food snacking this season is these Granola Bites. There is still enough sweetness in them to make them really fun and delicious, while packing a protein punch that keeps the cravings at bay. Plus? I love peanut butter. YUM.

March Wrap-Up

I can’t believe March is over already. It kind of flew by for me. You know what I love about March? Girl Scout Cookie season. St. Patrick’s Day. My nephew’s birthday. And last but not least, chocolate peanut butter day. Oh yeah, baby!

Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Since chocolate and peanut butter are such an amazing and well-loved flavor combination, and today is Chocolate Peanut Butter Day, some friends and I got together to share our absolute favorite peanut butter chocolate treats with you!

Brownie Cookies

These cookies, they require care. They require love. You literally can’t make them without putting love in them. I should add love to the ingredient list.

Virgin Mojitos

Since my daughter had an upset stomach and a bad school day, I figured a little light, refreshing, minty beverage might be a welcome relief. Plus, it was as good an excuse as any to make this fun beverage I have been craving for a while now.

Chocolate Dipped Cream Cheese Mints

I figured it would be a good time to revisit the cream cheese mints. There’s something about the mint flavor that is so refreshing, don’t you think? And, I made them green, because it’s March.

50 Fruit Cookies

I put together a collection of some of my favorite fruity cookies from around the web. All these cookies have one big requirement to make it on this list: They have to contain actual fruit in some form.

Samoas Rice Krispie Treats

I don’t want to brag, but this might be one of the most brilliant concoctions I have ever dreamed up. I wish I had thought about this when we had the big krispie-treat-contest at the family reunion 2 years ago. I totally would have blown them away.
