Peanut Butter Oat Cookies with Chocolate Fluff Filling

Have you ever wished you could change your life? If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you know that for the last 9 years I have been working at a job that I did not love. I spent some time last month talking to a very good food blogging friend and he made me realize that if I am truly serious about making food and recipes my future I needed to get on the stick! So, I left my old job and have taken a part-time job three days a week....

Summer is in full swing, and to me that means parties! Well, kids, this blog post is part of a party – a virtual pot-luck – sponsored by Lucky Leaf! You remember them, right?

After dinner, while...

Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Rolls

Bad days often equal the best ideas. When I am having a not-so-awesome day I tend to escape into food fantasy. My happy place is a fully loaded kitchen with an unlimited supply of butter, bacon, and chocolate – and an open bar. Anyway, on one of my recent no-so-awesome days I retreated to my inner test-kitchen and decided I wanted to combine cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies, with a little cream cheese tossed in for good...

Peaches & Cream Cookies

My name is Kelly, and I am a peach hoarder. No, really! I love peaches as you may well know. Last year – as peach season came to a close – I got a bulk package of dry peaches to get me though the winter. I love them because they are sweet, chewy, and terribly versatile. I may have gone a little over-board, however, in the amount purchased. Despite the fact that I dice them up and toss them into my morning oatmeal,...
