Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today is one of my favorite days of the year – reveal day for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap! This is my¬†fourth year participating which just seems crazy. It honestly feels like it was maybe two days ago that I told you all about pepparkakor […]

Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles

Let me tell you, the internet is a dangerous place. Seriously. You can start down the google search and emerge 2 hours later, not knowing how you wasted so much time. That was me last week when I was trying to find snow boots. The […]

Frosted Eggnog Cookies

Frosted Eggnog Cookies

Hello! Long time no bake. Well, that’s a lie because I actually baked quite a bit while I was at home, but it was all things I’ve already made and shared before. I made swedish gingerbread and cinnamon rolls, I baked biscotti for my dad […]

Brown Butter Shortbread Cookies & The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

Brown Butter Shortbread Cookies & The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

Can you believe that this is my third year participating in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap? Me neither. This year there were about 566 participants in 7 countries and we raised over $12,000 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! That came from the small donation […]

Brownie Cookies

Brownie Cookies

Today has been awesome. I sat on the couch and caught up on TV shows all morning, went grocery shopping, did laundry, scoured the kitchen (and cut my finger on the food processor which wasn’t awesome), hung out with my friend Molly, and I still […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Sometimes you just want cookies for breakfast. And you know that? That’s okay. I will always support you in wanting cookies for breakfast, especially when they’re fresh out of the oven and the chocolate chips are melty and they have little sea salt flakes on […]

Pretzel, Milk Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Pretzel, Milk Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Long title. I know. But yet again, pretzels are important. Milk chocolate chips are important. And peanut butter chips are important. Get with it.   While writing this post, I watched the Tony Awards. And oh my god, I love Hugh Jackman and he can […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m celebrating both Sweden’s National Day and the lesser but delicious National Donut Day by posting about cookies. Go figure. I’m also celebrating because I made it through my week of jury duty without ever having to go to the courthouse! When I called last […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I finished rereading The Fault in Our Stars for my book club meeting next week and my soul hurts. I know it’s a young adult book but honestly? It’s a heart wrenching, soul hurting, beautiful love story. This is my second time reading it and […]

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

I took a wine class this week for work and I had no idea there was so much to know about wine. I knew there were different types but I didn’t realize there were quite so many. Like Gamay. I’ve never heard of that kind […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had the best Saturday. I got to see two of my high school friends who were out in LA and we saw dolphins!! We were down at Venice Beach and all of a sudden I saw a dolphin jump out of the water and […]

Chocolate Sugar Cookie & Nutella Sandwiches

Chocolate Sugar Cookie & Nutella Sandwiches

Apparently it’s Valentine’s Day this Friday. So I made us cookies. Adorable, mini, heart shaped cookies filled with nutella. And by us, I really mean my book club friends that I met with last night. But that’s okay, because these cookies are so simple you […]
