Whose big idea was it to have cake for every single birthday party ever? Nothing against cake, but I can think of about a dozen things I’d rather have. I don’t think there’s a single thing wrong with a birthday brownie, pie, cobbler, krispie treat, or fruit covered cookie.
I bought myself a new maxi dress, so I guess I’m ready for summer. Why does lemon seem so summery? Some fruits can feel at home in any season, but plain old lemon is a summer as it gets.
Do you ever wonder what white chocolate is? All I know is I like it. White chocolate is yummy. The puppy and I agree on this point.
I decided to throw together some last minute cookie bars, and I seriously considered a repeat of the Coconut Chocolate Chip Bars. But my chocolate cravings got the best of me, and with the presence of cocoa powder, mint chocolate chips, AND mint patties in my pantry, the decision became a verrry easy one. A little too easy, maybe.
There’s something about pecans that reminds me of my grandfather, because he man loovvves butter pecan. We always had butter pecan ice cream and pecan sandies at their house.
We all have our little struggles and our little preferences, I guess. I love a good chocolate chip cookie and Robb loves anything coconut. It’s the kind of love that makes the world go round. Put them together and you have heaven on earth.
I just loved this cookie when it took the form of gingerbread last winter. It was excellent with the dark chocolate cocoa I had for breakfast. Which probably explains why I’m dieting now.
I don’t care if they’re authentic or not. They’re at least kind-of Mexican, and my family is going to be eating them for Cinco de Mayo. Maybe that’s all we need to know.
I’ve been noticing lately how many of my stories begin with the phrase, “So I went to Costco….” So, I went to Costco and came home with a giant box of strawberries. Gorgeous, sweet, juicy strawberries. I wanted nothing more than to bake with them.
Not long ago, I pinned these gooey S’mores Cookies, and I just could’t stop thinking about them. I wanted to create my own version, one without marshmallows. Not that I have anything against marshmallows. I just wanted to keep it simple, like a plain old chocolate chip cookie with a little graham cracker surprise.
You’d think having a cookie blog would be enough, right? I bake cookies, desserts, and snacks every week. The kids eat them like they’re going out of style. And still the doctor says things like, “No restrictions on his diet, let him eat whatever he wants.” I hope what he wants is Lemon Ricotta Cookies. Because that’s what I have.
My latest new Food Blogger Problem involves my children, and their propensity to volunteer me to make cookies for all their parties and activities. This time, the offspring gave me notice, multiple reminders, and even recipe suggestions.
I mean, it’s soft, it’s minty, it’s got chopped chocolate mint cookies in it, the entire batch disappeared in less than 24 hours… it’s basically the same old wonderful, delicious story.
The passing of beloved Aunt B was the final excuse I needed to bake chocolate cookies. Well, I never need much of an excuse to make something chocolate. Let me rephrase. It was the final excuse I needed to make the family recipe. Oh, hooray for family recipes that are chocolate!!
Peanut Butter Cookies are so delicious with a little chocolate on top! I love to add Hershey’s kisses to my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe to make them extra special.
