Triple Peanut Butter Blondies

The more peanut butter the better, right? I’ve made thick peanut butter blondies and I’ve made peanut butter blondies with chocolate candies.  Both of them are amazing, but these triple peanut butter ones are my favorite, by far.  Yup, I said triple. All three recipes start with the same peanut butter blondie base.  Do you know what that means?  I’ve got a good thing going here.  However, each recipe has its own twist.  The blondie base is so versatile.  I mean, hello, it’s a chewy peanut butter cookie in a bar form.  Nothing about that sucks. These blondies are loaded with peanut butter.  Really, really, loaded.  You’ve …

Brownie Cookies

Brownie and cookie.  Do I have your attention? I’m trying to get back on track to eating healthy.  The holidays were not kind to my waistline.  I’ve tried many diets that prohibit me from eating the things that I love and at the end of the day they didn’t go well.  I’d either quit or put the weight back on as soon as I was quit.  So I believe in moderation.  I like to have my salad and to eat a cookie too, especially when we’re talking about a chocolate cookie.  For those of you who follow me regularly you know …

Italian Ricotta Cookies

Are you eating cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner? This time of the year you’re baking cookies to give away (or to keep for yourself) or receiving cookies or both so it’s definitely socially acceptable to consume cookies all day long.  😉  The question is what will we eat when the holidays are over?  Oh right, salads and smoothies.  You know, because my New Year’s resolution will be to lose weight.  Again.  Until then, I’ll happily eat all the cookies I can get my hands on, including these cookies. These Italian ricotta cookies are one of the best cookies I’ve …

Peanut Butter Blossoms

It’s officially cookie baking season!  Aka, “bake until your back and feet hurt and you run out of eggs or flour or butter” season. I love to bake cookies for my friends and family for the holidays.  I mean cookies, yum, hello.  I bake different ones each year but I always, always, always bake some kind of peanut butter and chocolate cookie.  This year I’m baking these classic peanut butter blossoms. I bet that you’ve seen these cookies before and maybe you’ve even made them.  They’re the kind of cookie that you make every holiday because it’s tradition (and because they’re …

Flourless Paleo Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

Guys, I have a chocolate cookie winner here. The other day I said that I won’t get suckered into decorating for Christmas yet.  Although I still love ya if you are already decorating (cough, cough, mom 😉 ).  I always decorate the weekend right after Thanksgiving day and that’s still the plan this year.  I’m having friends over tomorrow and the table is decorated with pine cones, miniature pumpkins, candles, and flowers.  So I’m definitely still embracing all things related to Fall. However, I will admit that I’m already watching Christmas movies.  The Hallmark Channel started their Countdown to Christmas the weekend before Halloween …
