Double Caramel Brownies

Well I’ve finished moving. Almost anyway… My apartment is cluttered with half-empty boxes, the fridge and pantry are mostly empty and I have to take baths because I haven’t even hung up a shower curtain yet. So while I’m buried under my mountain of crap I should have considered donating to Goodwill quite some time […]

Just Like DoubleTree Cookies

Have you ever stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel? They have these cookies that are like the cookie equivalent of crack. I kid you not. See… Since I’m totally the kind of girl who would pick a hotel based on the cookies they serve, it’s a real bummer I can’t afford to stay at the DoubleTree […]

Austrian Raspberry Shortbread

So the first two days at my new job left me wanting to bang my head on the desk. The “training” was so painful I would have rather they just put me to work scrubbing dishes or hell even cleaning toilets! Exibit A: A plate of eggs gets one slice of orange to garnish, but […]

Pot o’ Gold Cookies

I think I might need to get a life. I spent an hour today playing Cash Cow on Webkinz. I’d like to say that it was to help my daughter beat a level or earn some KinzCash, but no… I’m just a dork. I also managed to kill like three hours playing with coding to […]

Peanut Butter S’More Cookies

I want to start by saying thank you for all the prayers and well wishes that you were all so kind to leave for me last week. I wish I had good news to share, but the doctor still has not called with the biopsy results. If I don’t hear back later today I may […]

Emily’s Chocolate Covered Pecan Cookies

You may recall how just the other day I gushed about Emily’s Chocolate Covered Fortune Cookies. But my love affair with Emily’s Chocolates really began with their Milk Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Pecan Halves. *Sigh* Seriously, what’s not to love? Even better, pecans contain like 19 vitamins – they’re good for your heart, your cholesterol, and […]

Peanut Blossom Cookies

If you were reading along with me last week, you know that I had one of my less than stellar moments as a parent. While it all turned out all right in the end, it still left me feeling a little guilty. I wanted to do something special for my daughter so that she would […]

Orange Cardamom Madeleines

Madeleines might just be THE perfect cookie because they’re kind of like cake and a cookie all rolled into one.  They’re light and fluffy and oh so heavenly with a cup of tea! Or coffee, whatever floats your boat… We’re equal opportunity caffeine lovers around here! I couldn’t think of a better way to end […]

Cinnamon Hazelnut Shortbread from Baker Street

I won’t even bother to tell you how many days are left until Christmas, as it would probably just totally freak me out! And maybe a few of you too… So pull up a chair, take a deep breath, we’ll forget about everything we need to do, and let’s indulge in one of the best […]
