Chocolate & Butterscotch Chip Oatmeal Cookies, for When Finding Joy in the Small Stuff is a Good Start

Chocolate and Butterscotch Chip Oatmeal Cookies |

Sometimes in life, there isn't much opportunity for replenishment of the soul, as important as that can truly be. And I always know when it's time for me to begin to draw into myself some nourishment from the external world as well as from the spiritual one, because the things that I typically so easily find to be shimmery and glowing, seem like they're beginning to lack a bit of luster and shine. And I begin to feel, quite frankly, like I'm beginning to lack a ... {more please!}

So This Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Walks Into A Bar…

Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Bars |

No joke, I love a good cookie. Thick, soft, and loaded with comforting sweetness (and perhaps even still a bit warm, fresh out of the oven), a cookie can be the perfect grab-n-go dessert to nibble on with a cold glass of milk or a strong, hot coffee. But when a good cookie can be turned into a thick, decadent bar, then things get seriously (and deliciously) taken to another mouth-watering level. (I guess you could call it “raising the bar” on cookies.) A few weeks ... {more please!}

“Chubby Hubby” Cookies, Freshly Baked And No Freezer Required

Chubby Hubby Cookies

We all like to enjoy ice cream in our household; however, I would probably call my hubby more of a “connoisseur” of it. You see, I'm pretty much a creature of habit when I enjoy this delicious treat of the cold and creamy kind, as I'm a “Rocky Road” or "coffee-flavored, slow-churned-lower-fat-variety" kind of gal, not really deviating much from that flavor profile or style when I'm shopping for ice cream for myself. My husband on the other hand, loves to try out various flavors and ... {more please!}

A Cozy Holiday: “Rudolph’s Favorite” vs. “Santa’s Favorite” Christmas Cookies, To Each Their Own

Christmas Cookies

Now, I'm not criticizing, but by the looks of Santa, it seems that he's definitely eaten his share of Christmas cookies over the years. And I'm certainly not one to pick on Santa, of course, but I have the feeling that he's been just a wee bit naughty himself, and hasn't shared as many cookies with his faithful reindeer friends as he could've. Last I saw those precious reindeer—those hard-working, sleigh-pulling, North Pole-weather-enduring lil' fellas—they frankly looked a touch peeked to me, a little on the ... {more please!}

“Pancakes ‘n’ Bacon Cookies”, And Breakfast For Dinner Or As A Snack

Pancakes 'n' Bacon Cookies

In our house, we like to create our own zany reality. Funny enough, nobody would ever suspect just how silly our little family is; to look at us, we’re very straight-laced and socially well-behaved people. But when we’re in the privacy of our home, our own little sanctuary, things are different. So very often, loud cartoon voices punctuate the environment in our home, as do ridiculous, made-up phrases and silly imitations that result in bursts and fits of uncontrollable laughter because of the absolute absurdity of ... {more please!}
