Healthier Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Giants

Hold on to your hats, people! I actually captured a photograph of something edible. Something delicious. Something for YOU! You guys, I have to confess that I have been mentally opposed to #pumpkiningallthethings this season. It could be because I took a beach vacation at the end of September, or maybe because the food industry […]

Coconut Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies (Guest Post)

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Jody from Living Nutrition. Jody comes up with the most delicious looking recipes- her smoked cherry chicken wings and banana split ice cream cake are just begging to be made at my house! And don’t get me started on these cookies- no-bake thumbprints are genius. Thanks, Jody, for […]

Pumpkin and Gingersnap Yogurt Parfait (gluten-free)

It’s Thanksgiving week- I couldn’t leave you hanging without something yummy to look at! Forget pies and turkeys and sides and all of that nonsense- you probably already have your big day game plan in place. I wanted to give you something to eat in the days before (or after) Turkey Day. Chances are, you […]

Cookie Butter Parfaits with COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

Ahh, summer. Time to turn off the ovens, get away from the heat and enjoy the quick and easy recipes that don’t take much time to prepare. There’s nothing worse that being stuck in a steamy kitchen all day (unless it’s this Steamy Kitchen– i’m sure that would be a blast). There’s enough heat going […]

Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Happy Wednesday! I’m here to introduce you to the most popular treat in my freezer- Mint Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. I’ve mentioned my abundance of garden mint before, but things have gotten even wilder! This mint is taking over the garden like a boss! I’ve been thinking about making mint ice cream with it […]

Chocolate Snickerdoodles

 I love playing hostess. One of my favorite things to do is to make a meal and enjoy it with friends and family. Usually, I end up going a little overboard as the host- I start to feel like dinner isn’t enough on its own, and then I start making drinks and desserts and bread. […]

Coconut Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lesson learned so far in life with two babies: sometimes you will just need to make cookies. In some ways, parenting two has been easier than I thought. I bounced back from the birth easier, I am actually able to get us all out of the house in a decent amount of time, I can […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

If you’re craving something sweet, rustic and easy to put together, than this cookie will be calling your name. Just looking at this iron skillet reminds me of summers spent at my family’s cabin- but that’s just nostalgia talking, since our typical treats up there were things like oatmeal pies and roasted marshmallows. But I […]

Sprinkled Chocolate Thumbrint Cookies

Good morning, all! How are your holiday sugar hangovers? Today I’ve got some more sugary treats for you in honor of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by the fabulously talented Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen. I have had the pleasure of meeting these two darlings in […]

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a chewy chocolate chip cookie lover.  There is just something excellent about biting into a soft, gooey, melty cookie.  Sounds perfect already.. but add nutella, and I’ll eat the whole batch. I’ve been a little light on the posting lately.  That’s mostly because I got burnt out on all the vegan business.  It […]
