Soft and Chunky Oreo Peanut Butter Cookies

  Here are two disclaimers for this recipe post about a delicious cookie: 1.  I am a purist when it comes to Oreo Cookies.  None of these fancy seasonal flavors or even the double stuff or reduced-fat. No, give me the original! 2.  I wouldn’t say that peanut butter cookies are my favorite.  There are […]

Sundays in the South

I missed last’s week’s Sundays in the South installment.  For the first time in over a month my mister had a Sunday afternoon off – so we enjoyed that time together.  I usually don’t get on the computer when he is home – because I want to be about doing life with him, not blogging. […]

Snickerdoodles with Spiced Pumpkin Buttercream

Ruby Red Madeleines

The taste of summer.  Bright fresh citrus in the form of red grapefruits.  Pretty pinkish color throughout these delicate, sponge-like cookies.  Perfectly shaped into sea shells – which is another favorite of mine in the summer – the beach.  These cookies are perfect! I borrowed a madeleine pan a few weeks ago from a friend […]

Rice Krispy Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffins

  I got to bring something to a birthday party this past weekend and had most of the ingredients for these, so I went with a new recipe.  I liked the crisp in them and of course the addition of a little hershey’s chocolate on top. 1 stick unsalted butter, softened 1 cup brown sugar, […]
