Flourless Zucchini Breakfast Cookies


We are going through some ups and downs with my diabetic dog. “We” is me and him and my dad when my dad’s in town. He has become an increasingly picky eater over time, which could be due to kidney failure or gum disease or both or neither. It could be some other reason. It…

Brown Butter Bitttersweet Chocolate Chip Cookies {w/sea salt}


  I was browsing through my “drafts” folder and came across this recipe that I apparently tried in January 18, 2014 without including any photos in the draft. Here’s what I said back in January 2014: This past week I leaned heavily on one of my coworkers for a rather urgent issue and she totally came…

Salty Pretzel Scotcheroo Cookies


This recipe is inspired by the Sea Salt Butterscotch Pretzel Cookies by Cookies and Cups. I knew when I saw it on Pinterest that I wanted to make it even though I found the idea of pretzels in cookies a bit weird. Mainly because I was worried the pretzels would become “stale” in texture when…

Oreo Stuffed Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups


A few weeks ago I made this scrumptious dessert bar made of chocolate chip cookie dough and Oreos soaked in condensed milk overnight and then backed to a gooey perfection. It was about the best dessert I had ever made save for the Gooey Payday Scotcheroo bars I made last week. There’s this store near-ish…

Christmas Toffee Monster Cookies


One of the cookies I usually ask my mom to make for Christmas (when I know I’ll be seeing her and enjoying her cookies) is Monster Cookies made with peanut butter and M&Ms. So when I found a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens described as a “monster” cookie I knew I needed to add these cookies…

S’mores Blossom Cookies


I love S’mores anything. Besides real S’mores. They seem like so much work and really only appropriate to make when you’re camping. I rarely go camping and haven’t gone in years. Like … twenty years. But S’mores flavored desserts or ice cream? I’m all in. I once had a seriously delicious S’mores cupcake made by…

Peanut Butter Blossom {reboot}


Prior to Thanksgiving I had all this gusto when I thought about all the Christmas cookies I wanted to make this year. I planned to dedicate Black Friday to cookie making. Then Thanksgiving happened. I mean I cooked and cleaned all day long. It was exhausting. So I didn’t much feel like making Christmas cookies…

Cake Batter Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies


I’m in the process of making a funfetti cake for my coworker. She just got married and my gift to her is a cake. It’s my gift to everyone else too, I guess. I decided I wanted to pair a “cake batter” frosting with the funfetti cake. And then my mind began wondering to cake…

Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies {momofuku}


When I was looking for recipes to use up my ginormous box of cornflakes, I found a recipe for Momofuku Milk Bar’s Cornflake Chocolate Chip cookies at marthastewart.com. The recipe looked enticing but I didn’t have marshmallows at the time. Because I had made Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookies sans marshmallows the week before, and they were…

Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookies {w/sea salt}


  I have an insane amount of non-perishable food that goes uneaten and then eventually perishes. Seriously. You should see my cupboards and island. The sad thing is at any given moment I’m not eating this or that which prevents me from being able to truly utilize all the food I have. I got a…

Chewy Peanut Butter Oat Cookies


I spent an hour or so scrolling through Pinterest the other night and found a cookie recipe from the food charlatan that I knew I needed to make as soon as humanly possible. It basically called to me when I saw it. Why? Well for starters, I just plain love peanut butter. I also love…

Hemp Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies


It’s been about two years since I purchased Julie Morris’s cookbook Superfood Snacks. I’ve tried less recipes than I had intended but this recipe was one I always wanted to try. I love chocolate chip cookies so if you can make chocolate chip cookies healthy then consider me bought and sold. Turns out, you can….

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies


I have tried a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipes in my day in search of the perfect chocolate chip cookie. So when I recently signed up for emails with America’s Test Kitchen and promptly got an email for the Perfect Chocolate Chip cookie, I knew I needed to try it. The recipe is based…

Farm Cookies


Nope. You don’t need to live on a farm to make or eat these cookies.

Old-Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies


For years my Grandma has been clipping recipes from all sorts of sources (the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Parade magazine, Relish magazine, Penzey’s magazine etc.) and sending them to me. I pull out the ones I find immediately interesting and save the ones I don’t with the idea that my tastes are always changing and maybe some…

Banana Bread & PB Chocolate Chip Cookies


Over a week ago I bought a bunch of bananas to make a bunch of banana “ice-cream.” I guess I was overzealous in my thoughts because after a week passed the bananas were still sitting on my counter only by then they were too brown to eat and past the point where I would want…

Flourless Oatmeal Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


After sipping a nice warm mug of hot chocolate on this nice warm muggy California morning, I decided I want to go back to my cookie-hot chocolate diet and that I needed some cookies on hand in order to do so. I took to Pinterest and immediately found this recipe in my feed. I’m not…

(BF) Throw Down-esque Chocolate Chip Cookies


I’d seen this recipe floating around Pinterest for quite some time now and had been wanting to try it intrigued by the idea of using freshly chopped chunks/shreds of chocolate instead of chips. And because they sell chunks of chocolate at my local Winco, that is exactly what I picked up on my most recent…

Triple Chocolate Cookies


A friend once asked me how I know so much about cooking and baking. I can’t remember what I told her at the time, but as I was attempting to bake these cookies today I realized the answer: trial and error. I do. Or I try anyway. And I learn from my mistakes. Isn’t that…
