Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday I made our neighbors a batch of cookies as a thank you gift for helping me take care of a lost dog on Thanksgiving. I’d planned on chocolate chip, but wanted to do something a little more special, and made a version with buttery toasted nuts and coconut. Perfect timing! Because later that day […]

Zero Bar Cookies

Today’s recipe is a cookie tribute to a candy bar loved by dads across the country. Or at least that’s the hasty conclusion I’ve drawn based on the fact Beth Colvin’s dad loved Zero Bars and mine did too.   So at least two dad’s like Zero Bars. If you’ve never heard of Zero Bars, they […]

M&Ms Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

I never latched on to the new Pretzel M&Ms…..something about the pretzels displacing the chocolate bothered me, even though I very much like pretzels with chocolate. But now there’s this. The M&Ms people (or maybe this is all Ms. Green’s doing since she’s featured so prominently on the bag)  have mixed their candy with almonds, […]

Chocolate Macarons

On Sunday I made my “fourth ever” batch of macarons. That doesn’t qualify me as an expert, but they turned out so well that I’m going to post the recipe. For those of you who mentioned you wanted to try making macarons but hadn’t worked up the guts, just do it! It’s really pretty simple. […]

Baby Ruth Cookies

Baby Ruth bars used to be everywhere — at the grocery store, gas station, car wash vending machine and the bait store near my granddad’s house, right between the Lance Crackers and the Chick-o-Sticks. Acquiring the Baby Ruth for this cookie recipe was about as challenging as as finding Skor Bars, and like …

Best Yet M&Ms Cookies

MM cookies 001

Last week I mentioned I was looking for the perfect M&M cookie – not just a chocolate chip cookie with M&Ms instead of chips, but a thin, chewy cookie with brown edges and lots of wrinkles on top. So far, these are my favorites. To get the right texture shortening was required. If you swap […]
