S’mores Cookies #recipe

In honor of the dad in our home, Rob, we came up with a treat for the nights we don’t get to spend by the fire. You see, we outfitted our yard with a firepit this spring, bought some chairs then bought some vintage furniture and are re-doing it and bought a hammock and got […]

Chewy Coconut Cookies #recipe

I’m a cookie brat. I’m particular about the flavors and types of cookies I eat. I don’t eat packaged cookies except for the occasional Oreo or Samoa. I prefer my cookies fresh, made from scratch and warm. This means homemade cookies often get eaten before they’re even cooled. These Chewy Coconut Cookies are especially good when […]

These Sweet and Salty Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies are of course sweet from the chocolate but the addition of coarse salt & toasted walnuts give […]

Witch Finger Cookie #FAIL #kidsinthekitchen

A few days ago I shared this link for Skeleton Gingerbread Girls. I showed it to Shae and she said she wanted to try to make them. I happened to buy a set of christmas cookie cutters this week so I was onboard but things went terribly wrong. We started with a shortbread cookie. I […]

Gluten Free Chewy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookie #kidsinthekitchen

I had my niece Madi over last week for a few hours but my own kids weren’t home so I needed something fun to do. I figured BAKE! Kids like to eat and play with their food so the answer was easy. The problem lies with her Celiac Disease. Madi can’t have wheat, rye or […]
