Here is what my mornings tend to look like: Stumble out of bed after snoozing for way too long. Put my contacts in, and jump in the shower. Get dressed and downstairs with just enough time to make a cup of coffee and head out for work. If I am lucky, I can grab something […]


Back when Mike and I were just starting to date and get to know each other, one of our first dates was at a Japanese BBQ place. You   know the type, round grills in the center of each table and copious amounts of meat. It was love at first bite. Since then, I like to recreate […]


I know…I know. It’s been 3 months. I’m a bad little blogger. But before you curse me out and never come back, hear me out. Right after Christmas, it was like life kicked into overdrive. I have about double the responsibility at work now, and Mike and I are house hunting (omfg right???). So to […]


Lemon Cookies

These might be my new favorite cookie. The lemon flavor is subtle but full. The sweetness is just enough. The balance of flavors is really quite good. Mike gave me 2 thumbs up on them, which I would usually take with a grain of salt, but he actually seemed really enthused about these. And he […]


Ok. I’ve got to be straight with you guys. This recipe is not mine. It’s Nestle Tollhouse’s. I was thinking about what makes a great chocolate chip cookie, and well, their recipe is perfect. It doesn’t need anything. And you know what, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. These are the classic recipe, all […]


In truth… When I went to make these cookies I intended to make toffee cookies. I thought I had a bag of toffee chips in the pantry. And then I went to make these, and there was no toffee to be found anywhere. So instead of taking a trip to the store just for toffee […]


Mike and I did most of our holiday shopping online this year. There is something so wonderful about missing the crowds and craziness in the stores. So with all the time we saved by shopping online, I went on baking sprees this year. These chocolate thumbprint cookies are one the fruits of my labor! You […]


Chocolate and peanut butter. Its like peas and carrots. Totally meant to be. These cookies bars are pretty much the best thing ever. I’m so happy every time I make them. Mike and I always take turns licking the spatula. Bon appetit! And yes I know this isn’t a traditional cookie… So sue me! Happy […]

What could be better than a crumbly cookie covered in powdered sugar?? Yeah exactly. It’s pretty high on the list. These cookies are prefect for the holidays. They are sweet, filled with nuts and they make a big mess. Just like being with your family for Christmas dinner! Ha! See what I did there?? Anyways. […]
