Molasses Ginger Crisps

What do you do when you’ve got four strangers replacing six windows in your house? If you’re like me, you bake cookies. Lots of cookies.

Oatmeal Cream Pies – Way Back Wednesday

Welcome to another edition of Way Back Wednesday. This week, featuring my very own Oatmeal Cream Pies from last October. These received raves at a party that I brought them to. Enjoy.

peanut butter – chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

What happens when you combine the best traits of three amazing cookies into one cookie? You get the Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie.

I’ve been going through cans of pure pumpkin puree like it’s water. I’ve made these cupcakes more times than I care to count. They are amazing, you should make them. Your friends and family will be very happy campers. Even if they don’t particularly care for camping. I can relate. Today, I cracked open another…

cappuccino and white chocolate chip cookies

Joy the Baker, one of the very best cooking blogs, featured this recipe for Cappuccino and White Chocolate Chip Cookies last week. I didn’t waste much time in making them myself.
