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...]

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.

Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies

cookies and cream muddy buddies 2

A classic cereal treat gets a favorite flavor makeover in these Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies! Muddy buddies will always remind me of my dorm. It sometimes feels like a previous life, but this classic cereal treat brings me back to those days. Teenagers in some little apartment, constantly noshing on junk food. With basically no kitchen equipment except for a microwave and toaster oven, we got all creative. Firstly, the school would pay for our breakfast, so we ordered lots of Chex every week. They probably thought we were big cereal eaters....I guess we were, but not in the way they intended! Next, we learned quickly all of the creative ways we could use the microwave and toaster ovens … [Read more...]

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?

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? Well either way, I really hope there's room for one more … [Read more...]

Well I aint' done yet, so stay with me folks. Today I'm moving away from the apples for a bit, and instead I'm sharing a pomegranate recipe.

Graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow...it's the flavors of summer baked into a S'mores Bundt Cake!  Even if you haven't been paying really close attention, you might have noticed how I am kinda into s'mores.
