Spiced Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am having a hard time finding my words today. I am not sure why, but lately I find myself fighting writers block.  It happens to everyone.  I know I am not alone, but as I sit here struggling to be compelling I find myself feeling kind of isolated.  Cone of Shame comes to mind.  Now, before you think I am crying, “Oh, poor pitiful me,” realize that I could have just as easily not posted anything today and saved you all...

Sour Cream Snickerdoodles

Sometimes you will be bopping along, and then … WHAM!! Life is unpredictable.  Often when you least expect it things go all pear shaped.  That has happened in my life over the last week, and it is also why I have been relatively quiet.  Things are working themselves out now, but it will be a long journey for everyone involved.  I decided, if I had to deal with the stress of family related drama, that a big plate of cookies would...

Strawberry Filled Lemon Sandwich Cookies

Summer is coming. It is not exactly here yet, but with the rising temperatures and cloudless skies I can feel it on the horizon.  I am ready for it this year after the unpleasantly cold winter we had.  When the weather gets warm I start craving specific things.  Grilled meats, potato salad, and cool citrus drinks.  Now that winter is a distant memory, I have begun dusting off some of my warm weather recipes and shopping with an eye...

Double Dark Chocolate Chunk Coconut Cookies

The biggest positive of the week … Everything Pie is written!!  Going in I knew writing a book would be a challenge, but it was more difficult than I expected.  The rewards of this experience are numerous, but the biggest lessons I take away from it are that I am more dedicated, disciplined, and creative than I ever thought.   The big news now is that the publisher has...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

When I have a bad, or stressful day, or when I have an especially good day, I like to treat myself. In the case of this recipe I was having a bad day.  It was the last day of a rather bad week, actually and I was in need of something really evil to sooth my nerves.  This recipe was inspired by a brownie that I saw in a coffee shop a few months ago.  It was a walnut brownie with a walnut chocolate chip cookie baked in the center and it...

Butter Drop Cookies

I always want to look like I put in the extra effort, even when time is tight. Festive decorated cookies are all well and good, but sometimes there is absolutely no time to get fancy.  That makes this recipe an absolute treasure because you get bright, festive cookies that taste light, buttery, and delicious.  Of course, these are not just for the holidays.  Rolled in red and blue sugar these are great for the 4th of July.  If you...
