single serving vegan cookies

Sometimes I think I need to get off social media. Even though the election nonsense is mostly over (Hey, Texas- no one is letting you secede from the union), the things that get put on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. just make me want to hurl. Real tweet: “OMG! People need to STOP telling me I look…

two guilt-free desserts

It’s been hard for me to come up with exhilarating stories for you all since my life is so mundane. What’s up lately? Well, I got a job in a liquor store. It’s not really a liquor store, more of a nice place to buy craft beers and fancy wine. It has a Boar’s Head deli…

double chocolate cookies

We’re still without TV and internet. But I have to say, I don’t hate it. I’ve read two books in the past three days, gone to bed early, and done a lot of walking around. How am I blogging, you ask? I came to school to write clinic reports and accomplish various other mumbo jumbo tasks,…

ants-on-a-log cookies

Uh oh, I think I’m growing up. Evidence: I used to be able to eat about 4 cookies worth of dough, then 8 freshly baked out of the oven, then 2 more a few hours later when they cooled down. And feel just peachy-keen. Now? I have a spoonful of dough and one cookie out…

frosted shortbread cookies

I thought giving up chocolate would curb my bad desserting habits a little bit. On the contrary, instead of pounding a handful of semisweet chocolate chips after dinner, I’ve reverted to other alternatives. Making a batch of peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough to have in the fridge and then just baking two cookies at a…

pumpkin whoopie pies

I know, I know. It’s spring! It’s not pumpkin season any more yadda yadda I don’t care. Moving on. It’s Kelly’s birthday! YAY! And these are her favorite, hence the fall flavors in mid-March. Kelly has had some pretty epic birthdays. During one of the early ones, probably 5 or 6, things almost turned fatal…

oatmeal raisin cookie dough dip

It hasn’t even been 48 hours and I’m already struggling with the absence of chocolate in my life. Sad. So let’s talk about things I love other than chocolate. Or rather, I’ll babble on and you’ll read reluctantly. FUN! Ready set go. 1) The Bachelor. I’m not even embarrassed. I can’t get enough. Not a huge…

skinny oatmeal raisin cookies

This is it. We are in the single digits in the countdown to Christmas. At this point in time when we were younger, my sisters and I and our fourth sister (cousin) Chrissie, used to start practicing for Christmas. Yes, you heard me correctly. Practicing for Christmas. Here’s a breakdown in case you’d like to…

snickerdoodles

I love this word. Snickerdoodle. Bahaha. Also Jess from How Sweet It Is must seriously think we’re stalking her. She’s mentioned in basically every other post. But let me explain something. I read food blogs like most people read the newspaper. (This might be why I’m politically unaware.) I cannot be productive until I get my daily dose…

peanut butter squares

For many things. For being MIA, which I have an excuse for. For my last post being crappy, which I do not. For obviously writing out my apology in chocolate chips so that I could eat them afterwards. Selfish, but genuine. For giving you ANOTHER recipe with peanut butter and chocolate. Except I’m not that…
