Giant Oatmeal Cookies

Today’s recipe is from my friend Megan at Megan’s Sweet Life. Megan, who recently moved to Texas, was kind enough to try my marble cake. I was so grateful she took the time to make it that I baked a batch of her family’s favorite oatmeal cookies. Thanks to Megan, I think my family has […]

Here’s a recipe for anyone who likes chocolate chip cookies and cheesecake. That means everyone, right? Well maybe not, but I have a feeling these will disappear quickly at a party.

My New Favorite Sugar Cookies

Big Chewy Sugar Cookies

I love trying new sugar cookie recipes, but for the past few weeks I’ve been making the same one over and over again. Normally I prefer crunchy sugar cookies, but these cookies are a chewy exception! A mixture of cream cheese, oil and butter gives them a non-cakey, crispy-edged texture plus an interesting flavor. …

Melted Marshmallow Brownies

I’ve made plenty of marshmallow brownies, but they’ve always involved scattering the marshmallows on top a few minutes before removing the brownies from the oven — a step prevents them from melting into the brownies and disappearing.  But this marshmallow brownie is a little different.
