holiday cut-out cookies

Thursday, December 11, 2014

This past weekend the kids and I headed to my sister’s house for a cookie decorating party. It was really a few hours to eat cookie dough and spill sprinkles all over Auntie’s floor, but we all sure had fun anyway. This December has been rather odd for me; our house troubles are still ongoing (we are now currently gutting our entire basement and can’t run our furnace…

wheat free chocolate chip cookies

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

It is nap time. The little ones are quiet, and I am hoping they are asleep. I sit down to breathe, to take time to be still. Almost simultaneously it comes – the near audible whisper, a voice from within, from above. It is time for chocolate. I feel amused when I hear the call, but still give in to my afternoon addiction. My feet find the floor…

strawberries + cream amaretti cookies (gluten free) | guest post from top with cinnamon

Monday, June 17, 2013

It’s the summer of fun! For reasons before mentioned, I am lining up guest posts for this summer. Up next is Izy from Top With Cinnamon.

I’ve been trying out lots of other recipes over the years, but these are the cookies I always come back to. I actually came up with this recipe for a…

whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. with spelt, and fleur de sel, and cacao nibs.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

This week I got some nice little surprises from my dear husband: a gift certificate to itunes and a subscription to Saveur Magazine. Just because! I was rather excited, as music and cookbooks are at the top of my ‘ways to spend my time when everyone is sleeping’ list. So I was listening to music samples and flipping through pages, finding all kinds of goodness. My heart skipped…

baking dessert ice cream

toasted sesame ice cream sandwich cookies with no-churn chinese 5-spice coconut milk ice cream

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Ahem. These little ice cream sandwiches are so good. I wasn’t too sure about them, when I started scheming them up. But I love Chinese 5-spice, and toasted sesame oil, and coconut milk, and cookies and ice cream and crystallized ginger. So why not make dessert instead of stir fry? You are either totally into this right now, or wrinkling up your nose at me. I understand. But…
