Flourless salted almond chocolate cookies & a milestone giveaway [closed]


Spoiler alert: Today’s post is brought to you by the letter C as in Chocolate and the number 1,000,000 as in how many total page views we hit last week! When I first started this blog in January two years ago (TWO YEARS AGO?!), we were taking photos with our point and shoot camera on our coffee [continue reading...]

Iced oatmeal pumpkin spiced cookies (gluten-free)


This week was a big first for me. My first time passing out candy to little people dressed in bizarre outfits. Earlier Halloween day, I was on the phone with my mom when my brother called her to ask how much candy he needed to buy – would he get trick or treaters? How many? [continue reading...]

Dashboard chocolate chip cookies (gluten-free!)


“Golly, it was hot this weekend!” said everyone everywhere. Usually it doesn’t hit the hundreds in Chico until August, but we’ve already survived three heat-wave weekends at my parents’ house. At least this time the pool wasn’t covered with a dance floor so we could hop on in after sweating through our tee-shirts. The day after [continue reading...]

January promised cooler weather than our last August trip to Austin. We readied our stomachs for lots and lots of BBQ and [continue reading...]

Mexican wedding cookies & Engagement photos!


Alright guys, the month of experimenting in the kitchen begins! After weeks of complaining about studying, I finally took and passed my qualifying exam on Friday. Wahoo! A free woman! Up next: dissertation (no big deal, right?). But first, a break. Early Saturday morning began with puffs of flour tossed around the kitchen, baking sheets [continue reading...]

Not-your-mama’s oatmeal raisin cookies


Sometimes I send gifts late. I like to extend holidays and birthdays by shipping out a present a week after the occasion just to make people feel loved longer. It has nothing to do with forgetfulness or a lack of preparedness. Nothing. That’s exactly what I did with these chewy oatmeal raisin cookies; they arrived [continue reading...]
