Toffee Cowboy Cookies
It’s been a busy baking week for me! On Monday, we
celebrated this month’s birthdays, so I made a cake for that. Wednesday at work
we celebrated the upcoming arrival of a new baby. It’s also the end of the
academic quarter, which means there are a lot of li...

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars
You know, when I look at recipes from around the world,
they sure look a lot different than American recipes. British baking recipes
tend to have less sugar, but still seem to taste as good. American recipe seem
to want to use the entire kitchen sink! These...

Pineapple Almond Cookies
I know that spring is coming soon, but the weather in the
Seattle area is certainly unaware of this. We’ve had rain, snow, hail and even
thunder snow in the past two weeks or so. This week, especially the end of it,
has just been a soaker. While I love cool...

Salted Dulce De Leche Cookie Bars
I try to keep a well-stocked pantry, so when I come
across recipes, I am prepared. It’s nice when I don’t have to go to the store
to get specific ingredients. Even though I plan what I am going to bake in
advance, sometimes I don’t feel like making the reci...

Peanut Brownie Sables
When I choose which cookies to bake each week, I
typically look online for ideas, or look at recipes that I have pinned. I have
a lot of great cookbooks, but I just don’t think to pick cookies out of there
for some reason. Last year for my birthday I got Do...

Oatmeal Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have been looking at a lot of different recipes today,
trying to find a recipe with no dairy. My friend at work can’t have dairy, so
she never gets to try the cookies that I bake. I never get upset if people don’t
eat my cookies, for whatever reason. I ba...

Strawberry Sugar Cookies
I often see recipes for strawberry cookies, and they
inevitably use a strawberry cake mix to impart the strawberry flavor. While I
don’t mind using a cake mix occasionally, I prefer not to. How hard should a
strawberry cookie be? I guess it is harder than I...

Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies
In the middle of winter, it’s nice to have some relief.
While we don’t typically get snow in the Seattle area, we do have many grey
days. It’s at least been cold and sunny the last few days, and the days are
getting longer. It’s dark when I go to work, but ...

Sweet and Salty Caramel Bars
My husband has recently been wanting me to bake chocolate
chip cookies, his favorite. I don’t often make them, since chocolate chip
cookies are not the most exciting things to post on the blog. I do look for
recipes that might in some way be reminiscent of ...

Cinnamon White Chocolate Cookie Cups
The inspiration for this week’s cookies came from a
couple of places. A friend at work is selling her place and she was cleaning
out her kitchen. She had several bags of cinnamon chips that she wasn’t going
to use, so she brought them to me. I also made a c...
