Cookie Swap: Chocolate Chip & Pecan Cookies

The great Christmas cookie swap of 2017 continues with these giant, chunky cookie creations! When Shannon first introduced to me this little tradition, I was quite thrilled at the chance to eat all the cookies. For my contribution, I knew that I had to include this recipe, as it’s now become my staple when it comes to cookie baking.

MMMM Doughnuts

There’s only one thing I love as much as pizza…doughnuts. While I do have a small amount of willpower when it comes to refusing these doughy rings of deliciousness when I’m out and about, if I make them at home, I will eat them. It’s just a fact. And that is one of the many reasons I never make them at home.

Cookie Swap: Coconut Macaroons

While I’m not participating in any actual cookie swaps (not entirely sure what a cookie swap is), I am baking, and consuming a lot of cookies this Christmas season. Thankfully, the hubs likes to take them to his office to share so we aren’t eating ALL of the cookies. This recipe is so easy and the ingredients are standard in every kitchen, not just a baker’s pantry.

Easy Mode: Pumpkin Muffins

It’s October which means pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! While I’m not a huge fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, there are some pumpkin flavored things I will get behind. This recipe is a Pinterest OG Pin.

Great Big Brownie Smile

I’m on a mission to try and cut out all boxed or prepackaged baked goods. It’s all about the scratch-made life for me…at least until I run out of the sugar, butter, and flour needed to create yummy things from scratch. So far I’ve been able to bake things containing ingredients I already have.
