Happy National Macaroon Day!

by on May 31, 2009 · 8 comments

Apparently today is National Macaroon Day.  Happy National Macaroon Day!  I wanted to be in the mood for them, but wasn’t so I made something else.  But if you are up for some macaroons, here are two of my favorite recipes. Both are for the big, chewy-style macaroons as opposed to the pretty, delicate French sandwich […]

Corn Flakes Macaroons

by on April 29, 2009 · 7 comments


I couldn’t make the Frosted Flakes Chocolate Chip Cookies mentioned earlier, but thanks to this recipe, I’ve finished off a giant box of regular Corn Flakes. Now I can get on with my life. These were good – sweet, but good if you like macaroons. Corn Flakes Macaroons 4 large egg whites 1/4 teaspoon (1 […]

Leftover Halloween Candy Cookies

by on November 3, 2008 · 17 comments


Today’s cookie was inspired by an old Pampered Chef recipe which called for one of their special batter bowls, a stoneware pan, spatula spreader and probably another product I missed while scanning the directions. What I was interested in was the dough, which turned out to be a great vehicle for miscellaneous Halloween candy. …

Peanut Butter Cookies

Earlier this week, Judy from Judy’s Kitchen challenged me to a peanut butter cookie taste test. She wanted to put her candy filled peanut butter cookies up against my (not so) humble criss-cross cookies. Fine, I said. Then I looked at her recipe. Frankly, it’s an apples-to-oranges situation and won’t work …

Ina’s Macaroons

by on March 19, 2008 · 10 comments


I’m not a huge fan of macaroons, but there’s always someone in the crowd who loves them and with Passover and Easter coming up, it seemed like a good idea to pull out the coconut. After looking through a bunch of recipes, I picked this one from Ina Garten. Reviewers, even those who didn’t love […]

Chocolate Malt Whopper Cookies

malt cookies

Growing up, we had a tradition of buying my dad a big carton of Whoppers on his birthday. They were his favorite, and he’d keep them on his dresser along with other off-limits items like his wallet and watch. Let me tell you, Whoppers taste better stolen off dressers. I’ve had to change my ways, though. Neither Fuzz nor […]

I’ve had Lady Bird Johnson on my mind today, so I decided to cook up a few of her specialties. I found her famous lemon square recipe and was all gung ho on on trying her version, but I only had one lemon and couldn’t go to the store because Fuzz had a friend over. […]

Snicker Cookies

by on November 1, 2006 · 26 comments

Thanks to Taneka, who sent me an interesting recipe using Halloween candy, I’ve managed to pull myself out of the post-Halloween funk. Taneka first encountered these cookies on a dessert tray, passed around at a wine dinner. The chef was nice enough to give her the recipe, and I am glad he did because these […]
