Circus Animal Truffles!

I volunteered (well, technically, I was asked to volunteer) to bring a few baked goods to a work bake sale for charity. I turned to a couple of old standby favorites: cookie-based truffles. I love these creamy, crunchy, simple, chocolate-covered delights. I’ve shared recipes before for three variations of cake batter truffles (Oreo, funfetti, and chocolate […]

Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts

This recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tastes like pure comfort to me. What does pure comfort taste like for me? Cashmere and Veuve. Vanilla, butter, oatmeal, toasted nuts, and brown sugar.

Disclaimer: I was given free silicone non-stick baking mats by Kitchen Executive Chef to review.

Cake Batter Truffles

Cookie dough, cake batter, brownie batter – they’re all in the category of “favorite indulgence ever” as far as I’m concerned. It appears that I’m not alone in this designation. I know for sure that at least Ketch and Sammy agree (yes, I’m still somewhat fuming over the Great Dog Truffle Heist of 2013). And […]

Southern Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m quite sure that I’ve mentioned that I’m a morning baker. And a morning cleaner, laundry sorter, dog walker, reader, thinker, over-analyzer, etc. On this particularly frigid morning, I was working on my recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I wanted to make them “Southern.” I scoured the cupboards looking for Southern ingredients, which I spread […]

Soft Sorghum Molasses Cookies

Warm cookies are always a treat, but this cookie recipe is something pretty special, if I do say so myself. I tried a few iterations of this cookie before I finally made all of the tweaks necessary to share this recipe. Sometimes this blogging hobby of mine is pretty wonderful.  These cookies taste like autumn, […]
