Cheerio Cookies

Apartment life is going well. Our neighbors are college students, retirees and families with kids. Judging from all the barking dogs and cats in windows, I think almost everyone around us has a pet. Speaking of which, Lizzie and the cat are adjusting quite nicely and Lizzie’s learning not to bark every time she hears […]

Ranger Cookies Made With Corn Chex

by on March 6, 2010 · 8 comments


The origin of Ranger Cookies is unknown, but here’s my theory. The recipe has been around since the 1930’s which coincides with the beginning of the radio program, The Lone Ranger. The Lone Ranger was a “serial” and Rangers contain “cereal” so maybe someone named them Lone Ranger cookies because of the cereal …

Indoor S’mores

indoor smores

I found this recipe 30 years ago on the back of a Golden Grahams box, and even though I was only about Fuzz’s age, I was smart enough to know that something made with dry breakfast cereal could never come close to the real thing; because If you think about it, s’mores are the perfect […]

I found this recipe in one of my stepmother’s cookbooks. It’s either from “Catholic Women’s Desserts” or “Sunrise Beach, We’re Still Cooking!” If I’d bothered to take notes I would be able to give you the exact source, but I didn’t match the recipe with the book. Luckily, my stepmother took some notes. In fact, […]

Today’s cookies were supposed to be Dorie Greenspan’s Granola Grabbers, but as usual, I went crazy and made a bunch of changes. I swapped out ground oats for the wheat germ, added chocolate chips, pecans, vanilla and baking soda and got rid of the raisins. There’s no confusing these for health food. They are buttery, […]

Weird but Delicious — Kix Cookies

by on April 30, 2009 · 37 comments


A few weeks ago, Fuzz went over to a friend’s house and ate dry Kix cereal for a snack. She liked Kix so much she asked me to buy a box. I did, and we’ve been munching on them all week. That they would eventually get baked into a cookie was inevitable. I’m not an […]

Butterscotch Marshmallow Cornflake Cookies

Before making OCG’s version of the famous compost cookie, I asked a few of my NYC based friends what they thought of the cookies…because naturally, they’ve been to Milk Bar multiple times. Reviews were mixed, but almost every person mentioned just how much she/he loved the composts cookie’s brother, the marshmallow corn flake chocolate chip […]

Special K Chocolate Cookie

We went to visit my mother this weekend and she gave us a huge box of German cereal. It’s called “Multi-Fit” and it looks and tastes like Special K. I’m not sure why Austin grocery stores are selling German cereal, but I guess there’s demand because my mom said a friend told her about it […]
