Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Before we left for Monterey on Saturday morning, I had to bake some cookies. Usually eating a bunch of cookies the day before a marathon probably isn’t the best course of action, but that’s kind of what ended up happening. They were pretty nice to have when we ended […]

Magic Scotchie Cookies


Why are these called magic scotchie cookies? Because I incorporated some features of magic bars (or 7-layer bars, or Hello Dolly bars) with scotchies (oatmeal and butterscotch chips). I left out chocolate chips because I didn’t want to overpower the butterscotch flavor. They’re pretty addictive, so I was happy […]

Pumpkin-Oatmeal-Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Cookies are probably the last thing anyone needs the day after Thanksgiving, but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to pumpkin, and with no pie left, I have to have something for dessert after my leftovers! Thanksgiving started with a very hilly, very COLD (okay yes I’m lame […]

Oatmeal-Pecan Cookies

Why is it that 99% of the time Mike or I crave cookies, there are no chocolate chips in the house? Probably because we cannot keep chocolate chips on hand or they will disappear. Both of us have shockingly little willpower when there is any edible (ie not unsweetened) […]

Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I steered clear of vegan baking recipes for a long time. I’m not sure if I was intimidated by unfamiliar ingredients, or afraid that the product would be inedible, but I was really reluctant to give up my beloved butter and eggs. Now that I’m head over heels for […]

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Some Mondays are just crap. I really try to be an optimist, embrace every day, live life to the fullest, and all that other Tony Robbins type stuff (and honestly, the only exposure I’ve had to Tony Robbins is thanks to a five year old son of two life […]

Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I may still be suffering from holiday treat overload, but my family hinted that they would enjoy some cookies, and my husband asked specifically for oatmeal chocolate chip.   I made a batch of these and using my New Years will power, only ate one!  Everything is fine in […]

White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are perfect for the days that are getting shorter, when Thanksgiving is not too far off.  A little break from pumpkin, but still festive.  Of course I would also make them throughout the year, but cranberry is reminiscent of the holiday season.   Cranberry and white chocolate contrast […]

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

I did not feel great after work today, so when there was a knock on my door not long after coming home, I didn’t really want to deal with it. However, when I saw that it was my baking buddy from down the hall, I had to answer the […]
