Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

IMG_7555.jpg

A no-bake, raw chocolate chip cookie dough you can eat without the guilt! [or risk of salmonella poisoning…] Chocolate chip cookie dough is kind of like my crack. By now you should all know that I have quite the sweet tooth [cheesecake IS my favorite food], but there’s just something about raw cookie dough that has my hand reaching for the bowl. I blame it on Mom#2. Growing up she used to let me lick the bowl clean when she baked. And by that I mean she’d leave an extra tablespoon or two in the bowl on purpose, hand me a spoon, and let me go to town on that sucker. ... Continue Reading...

Christmas might be over, or only 363 days away if you are a glass half full kind of person, but that doesn't mean that I am done with my Christmas baking yet! In fact, I still have quite a few Christmassy cookies in mind to bake, and with a certain someone visiting next week (stay tuned for who!) I have a feeling that baking is going to be happening up until the day that person arrives. That being said, here's the gingerbread cookies that I was telling you guys about earlier in the week. These little gems accompanied the rest of the goodies that went into my friend's ... Continue Reading...

Remember those food combos we talked about a little bit ago? Well, here’s another one of my favorites. Chocolate & Cranberry I think maybe it’s the sweet and tart combo that makes it so appealing to me, but if I’m being completely honest, it’s probably just because of the chocolate. (Almost) anything paired with chocolate is a winner in my book. I whipped these little gems up last week to quiet my cookie monger of a husband. He complained all night about wanting something sweet, so the next day after I got off of work I made him these so he’d put a sock in it. ... Continue Reading...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter. Chocolate. Cookies. Pretty much three of my favorite words right there. Oh, you thought “I love you” were the magic words? Well, you’ve been sadly mislead. It’s peanut butter, chocolate, and cookies. Especially if those three are actually one. I baked up these cookies for 3 reasons. The 1st is obvious, I wanted some freakin’ cookies. The 2nd, is because my co-worker had to put his dog down, and I thought that some cookies might help fill the ache in his heart, if only for a moment. Thirdly, Ninja is a hard workin’ man, and I wanted to surprise him ... Continue Reading...

Lemon. I don’t know about you, but when I think lemon, I think summer. Well, the rain pouring down outside my window right now assures me it’s not summer yet, but that doesn’t mean my taste buds aren’t ready for it! I made these cookie last weekend for Bestie and I’s girl’s weekend, and I decided to make them again this week for my co-workers birthday. I know, I’m super nice like that. Lemon Cornmeal Cookies A light, crisp cookie, that screams summer Ingredients: 1 C unbleached white flour 1/3 C yellow cornmeal 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt ... Continue Reading...
