Peanut Butter Chunk

One of our Sunday rituals is a trip to Trader Joe’s, where we scout out cheap wines, see what’s new and load up on favorites.  Fuzz likes TJ’s lentils, Todd’s pick is the frozen roasted corn, and my personal favorite is Trader Joe’s Salted Peanut Butter.  It took me a while to get used to […]

Chocolate Meringue Sandwich

I was going to hold off and post this recipe closer to Christmas or around the time most people started thinking about cookie exchanges, but these were so good I couldn’t wait! They’re cute, easy, and don’t require a lot of ingredients. Another nice thing about these cookies is that they freeze well. …

Double Chocolate Cookie

My stepmother is crazy about chocolate/orange, so over the years I’ve made a lot of desserts using that flavor combo. The only problem is sometimes the orange overpowers the chocolate and makes me wish I’d left it out completely. But that’s not the case here! The dough is straight double chocolate and the orange flavor […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Bisquick

I bought a box of Bisquick a few months ago so I that I could make some Impossible Pies.  I’d planned on making the taco kind, which is one of the first things I learned to make as a kid, but I never got around to it and ended up just making an Impossible Cheesecake. […]

Salted Caramel Bar Cookies

This is my updated version of an old classic called “Carmelitas”, oatmeal bar cookies with a creamy caramel filling made with caramel ice cream syrup.  The old version calls for caramel syrup mixed with a little flour to thicken it up a bit.   This new version uses a thicker, less-sweet caramel sauce called Smucker’s […]

Granola, Cranberry and Chocolate Chippers

I bought a new brand of granola the other day and found it to be too loose, not very crunchy and a little bland.  Not wanting to throw it away, I used 3 cups of it in these cookies and was pretty happy with the results.  They’re puffy, not overly sweet, have a soft center […]
