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…

Peanut Butter Cookies {gluten-free and vegan}


I found this random recipe for gluten-free vegan cookies which was a huge hit at my office. I also brought vegan snicker doodles and bittersweet chocolate chip cookies with sea salt but my coworkers went absolutely mad over these cookies. The best part is the recipe was so simple to follow. You’re going to want to…

Snickerdoodle Cookies {vegan}


I have a friend who loves snickerdoodle cookies. It’s become my mission to find different recipes or variations of snickerdoodle treats (bars, brownies, cakes etc.) to make for him on his birthday. I have another friend who is mostly vegan and recently had a baby. A few months ago I bought egg replacer (Bob’s Red…

Pistachio Cookies {with Bittersweet Chocolate Chips and Sea Salt}


I found a bag of pistachios on my counter this afternoon, leftover from my friend Jen’s birthday cake. I haaaate wasting food items so of course I needed to come up with a recipe to put the pistachios to good use. I browsed Pinterest trying to find the perfect recipe and eventually settled on a…

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Cookies


Even though I’ve been obsessed with pumpkin everything this year, I’ve been hesitant to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Why? Because I generally don’t like the cakey texture the pumpkin lends to the cookie. If I wanted cake, I’d eat cake. But when I want a cookie, I want the texture of a cookie. Got…

Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cookies


This weekend my eyes happened upon a bag of homemade chocolate marshmallows I made around Christmas. The recipe made a ginormous amount of ‘mallows and I had barely put a dent in the bag by dropping five in each cup of hot chocolate I’ve had since Christmas. In the mood for cookies, I wondered if I could…

Muddy Buddy Cookies


I can say with confidence that I haven’t had puppy chow (AKA muddy buddies) since the early to mid 90s. To be honest, I didn’t like it all that much back then. I hated the name (who wants to eat something that conjures up images of dog food?) and how messy it was with powdered…
