Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

‘ You could use these as bait for any kind of trap‘. A compliment from a grateful co-worker as he stuffed perhaps his third of what would ultimately become eight cookies by the end of his shift, into his mouth.  Side note – I often pray to the high heavens for his metabolism. I amContinue reading “Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies”

I just don’t feel like there is enough time in the day.  Mornings quickly are turning to evenings which are succumbing to earlier and earlier bedtimes because I seemingly can not keep my eyes open long after 930pm, that is, unless you offer me popcorn and another episode of Downton…but even then, I sometimes struggle toContinue reading “chewy chocolate toffee cookies”

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap…Chocolate Pistachio Sables

‘Tis the season for garland.  24 hours of Christmas carols on the radio.  Christmas movies overflowing on Netflix…which leads to White Christmas and continuous loop finding their way into the same sentence.  Rooftops outlined in twinkle lights…making me question people’s idea of what a straight line actually is … because if it means wavy, theyContinue reading “The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap…Chocolate Pistachio Sables”

Chocolate Pistachio Coconut Cookies

And here we go again.  I haven’t posted much in the month of January.  I blame Disney and Tim Riggins. Ok, fine, just Tim Riggins. I am not bragging, but I just finished the entire series of Friday Night Lights (thank you Netflix) in 1 week…and I am rounding up to 7 days, because itContinue reading “Chocolate Pistachio Coconut Cookies”

Chocolate Coconut Espresso Cookies

Is your tree up?  Lights strung and garland draped?  Candy canes hooked and ornaments placed just so?  The angel tree topper straight or is there a red bow with its red tails cascading down your tree?  Do you string popcorn and cranberries or perhaps marshmallows?  Have you named it?  It is a thing…people naming theirContinue reading “Chocolate Coconut Espresso Cookies”
