Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

April 28, 2014


“It’s not that I don’t like making them gluten-free” one voice said “I think you should try to bake it next time with a roasting pan with water below, you know?” the other voice said; my head whipped around to find this conversation immediately. It was another personal trainer and her client next to me and my […]

everyday as valentines day

March 8, 2013


Valentines day is not usually a big deal in our house, it’s usually acknowledged, but doesn’t usually find us as excited participants. This year was no different, really. I made it home early, well, before 7pm. I decided I would shower, relax, and order in some dinner as a gift of no dishes for myself. It was […]

simple oatmeal cookies

October 24, 2012


“Well,” I said “I can make oatmeal cookies, but I don’t have a damn thing to put in them. No chocolate chips, no raisins, nothing!” To this, I got a bit of a weird look. “Convenient. I don’t like oatmeal cookies that have stuff in them.” Enough said! I was off to the stand mixer […]

no-bake oreo cheesecake

October 6, 2012


My MO lately has been to buy Oreos while they are on sale. It’s amazing the things you can stick these buggers in! Mash them up, or just sneak a handful or make some cupcakes. It’s nice to have a reserve in the snack drawer, whenever I get the feeling to make something, theres usually […]

lemon & lime meltaways

September 25, 2012


One of my biggest recurring victories is cooking while using all items I already keep in the house. It doesn’t happen often that it works out perfectly, but when it does. Oooh. It’s a great thing. I found these while hopping from one blog to the next in the hopes that I would find a […]

spicy [ginger] molasses cookies

September 3, 2012


For a long time I thought that vegetable shortening was a no-go. It had no place in the house I grew up in, and though we were eating vegetarian, organic and non-processed for most of my childhood, and we made a bizarre transition from butter to margarine for a little while (much to my dismay) and then somebody smartened […]

chocolate chip cookies

August 30, 2012


I don’t really like chocolate at all. I’ve been over this a great many times. After asking my better/other half if he’d try these cookies he informed me that he didn’t really like chocolate chip cookies either. Damn. Left here with all these cookies, what’s a girl to do!? Silly girl. Not left with cookies, […]

Peanut Butter Cookies – revisited

June 9, 2012


I went back and looked at my previous version of peanut butter cookies, which, while very tasty – were missing one somewhat critical piece of information. What temperature to cook them at. Hmmm. How could I have missed that one? Cooking them for 12 minutes is all very good information to have, but only is […]

Bruins Playoff Cupcakes

April 26, 2012


I was very excited to see a few recipes involving oreos show up in my email the other day. I figured I had to make one of them – and soon. I failed to make them for my dad’s birthday on Monday, but Wednesday is almost as good, right…? Right! The world was trying to tell […]

shortbread cookies

April 14, 2012


I spent most of my day cleaning and doing laundry today. Since we’ve moved I have chosen not to work on the weekend. It’s been so nice to actually enjoy the place I’m living that I have sacrificed making (extra) money in order to sweep the floors, unpack things, make dinner, do dishes… I found […]
