You’ll get new recipes, cooking tips, menu suggestions, kitchen deals  – and more! Click here to signup.*** What is it about a snow storm that makes people want to bake cookies? I dunno, but there's definitely something about that. In anticipation, I planned to post this recipe yesterday. I figured that with the Northeast all snowed in under a "blizzard of the century," you'd all be baking cookies, and would appreciate a new one to try. Well, turns out that the entire world (or so it seems) was baking cookies, but … [Read more...]

Orange Glazed Orange Cookies

Bursting with orange flavor and boasting an incredibly chewy and melt-in-your-mouth texture, these orange glazed orange cookies are about to become your new favorite! This post is for my sister, Sarah. Don't worry, the rest of you guys can read along. You see, when Sarah got married a couple of years ago and moved to Israel, I went from seeing her almost daily, to seeing her...once or twice a year. And then she had a baby, but I didn't get to meet my adorable niece until she was about ten months old. It was tough...missing all of her early milestones. Phone calls, photos, even videos - it just isn't the same. It's a big world, and even with technology making it smaller, family … [Read more...]

Whether you like yours filled with jelly, custard, caramel, or something else, or whether you like yours with a hole in the middle and topped with a silky glaze, you have to admit: donuts are awesome. But donuts have their … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Spice Crinkle Cookies

Soft and chewy and full of fabulous fall flavors, these pumpkin spice crinkle cookies will be your favorite of the season! Who doesn't love a good crinkle cookies recipe? Everyone knows about the classic chocolate crinkles, but there are so many fun variations to play with! My first crinkle cookie variation on this blog was the Nutella Crinkle Cookie.

Next, I devised my Coffee Crinkle Cookies. I know that so many of you are already super into them. For those who aren't yet, you've got to get on that. If you love coffee and … [Read more...]

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies on OvertimeCook

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies are perfect for fall: soft and cake-y cookies with cream cheese filling in the middle! I don't have much to say today. Or maybe I have too much to say? All I know is that I'm exhausted, thinking too much about food - holiday food in particular - and it's not even Rosh Hashanah yet. I love hearing from all of you, seeing pictures of the recipes you're making from this blog, advising you on menu plans, etc. And it leaves me wondering...are you all exhausted too? Do you feel the burnout yet? Or does the thought of having your freezer stocked with all the holiday food you could ever need keep you going?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches on OvertimeCook

Ok folks. I have a confession to make. This isn't a new recipe. It's...two years old. Here's the deal. I have been super busy with some other stuff, and haven't been devoting as much time to the kitchen - particularly baking. So I dug through my files of Ami recipes for a fun summery treat that y'all might not have seen. This recipe was published over two years ago...how many of you were even reading this blog then?! Well, just cause it aint new, doesn't mean it isn't really delicious. The title might be a bit misleading, because it's not *really* ice cream in the middle, but it's creamy and served frozen so I'm taking my creative license to bat here. Anywho. This recipe is really … [Read more...]

Candy Studded Chocolate Cookie Bars are an easy, delicious and fun treat that will bring out the kid in all of us! Y'know how they say that "Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional"? Well I'm a firm believer in that saying. Kids are awesome. Adults? We want a new car and a 20% raise and we still won't be as happy as a child with a colorful lollypop the size of their face. And a kid can occupy themselves with a cardboard box longer than we can keep busy with an iPad. Well good news folks. You can feel like a kid again if you make these Candy Studded Chocolate Cookie Bars. They're simply adorable, and oh-so-fun. But here's the thing. They taste great. Like, great enough for … [Read more...]
