White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I told my niece I would love to make her a batch of cookies for her birthday, in any flavor she could dream up. A couple days later, she sent me a text message with her choice… White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. This girl has good taste in cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Muddy Buddies

I can tell you one thing, I was not not NOT going to use the oven. Or the stove. I was even apprehensive about using the air popper to make popcorn. So, we ate muddy buddies. Hooray!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark

I like the idea of this cookie bark. Since there’s no eggs and no leavening agent, they are flat and crispy, making them easy to transport to whatever crazy activity might come up.

Chocolate Cherry Coke Cake in a Jar – Share a Coke

I decided to share Coke with my family. We each put two tablespoons of Coke in our jar cakes, and when they were done baking, we had a quiet little moment at the picnic table in the shade.

Whole-Grain Coconut Waffles

I was a little worried that the gaggle of teens at my house would turn their noses up at these “healthy” waffles. I warned them that they were whole-grain. They literally answered by saying, “We don’t care. We want the waffles.”

Tropical Punch Fruit Juice Popsicles

I love making homemade popsicles. Not only can you have a lot more control over what goes in them, you can also get much more creative with flavor combinations.

Bread Pudding

I decided to swallow my pride and make my husband one of his favorite comforting desserts. I bought a loaf of french bread, added in a bunch of raisins, poured the custard over the top, and let it bake.

I really had fun with some awesome recipes this month. It seems you did, too, because almost all of this month’s recipes were popular and well-received. If you missed any of them, I hope you’ll take this chance to catch up!

Lemon Raspberry Meringues

My grandma always said if she was God, she would make raspberries the size of her palm. I kind of like them the way they are; I love that little bite-size burst of flavor.

This blog is dedicated to cookies. All types of cookies. But let’s face it, when it comes right down to it, it’s all about chocolate chip.

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I had been wanting to make some caramel-stuffed cookies anyway, and since it was my niece’s birthday, I decided to use Rolo candies instead of caramels to stuff the cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

The idea of this cookie dough dip really appeals to me. It’s all about the chocolate chips. The dip, and whatever you dip in it, is just a delivery system for the chocolate chips.

Peanut Butter Snickers Ice Cream Pops

This week, I decided my portable snacks ought to be homemade, and since I recently purchased some new popsicle molds, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. Also, it gave me an excuse to eat Snickers.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

I actually regret teaching my kids this recipe, because now every other time I come in the kitchen, I find empty cocoa packets on the counter, a dirty blender in the sink, and empty whipped cream can, and most importantly, no frozen hot chocolate for me.

Orange Blueberry Whoopie Pies

I love everything about citrus fruits, except eating them plain. Personally, I’d rather bake with the oranges. Which is what I did today.
