Homemade Oreos

There are few things I like better than a good giant Oreo entering my face. Oreos are one of my only hard cookie weaknesses (only the chocolate ones, not the goldens). Being able to make an even more delicious version at home can only be a dangerous thing. Thankfully they require the extra step of […]

Chewy Pumpkin S’mores Cookies

I was going to go easy on the pumpkin this year, I really was. But you know how pumpkin is, right?  You use some and there’s some left, so you find another recipe you simply must make, but that needs 1/4 cup more pumpkin than what you had left over, so you open some more pumpkin…the cycle […]

Saturday Sweets: Golden Coconut Macaroons

Golden Coconut Macaroons - a simple drop cookie with major coconut flavour.

I only just shared a fabulous coconut macaroon recipe with you, so you might be a little surprised to see another coconut cookie so close on its heels.  Well, I love those first macaroons intensely, but they do take some time, and they’re big, intense, special occasion dessert cookies. These little beauties, on the other […]

Saturday Sweets: Oatmeal Fudge Sandwich Cookies

Fudge Fibre Cookies

Dare I say I have found the world’s best way to take in your fibre? I believe I do dare. Fibre-packed cookies stuffed with a generous slab of fudge – how often do you get your fibre and your fudge in the same bite?!  The cookies are a delicious chewy oatmeal cookie, and they are […]

Saturday Sweets: Good Grains Fruit & Oat Cookies

Good grains fruit and oat cookies

I’m feeling a huge sense of relief today.  Yesterday I handed in a 13-page paper and officially finished my last assignment besides a final exam for my Political Psychology course.  It’s funny given how much I love school how relieved I always am at the end of a semester. Suddenly my evenings are looking so […]

Saturday Sweets: Chocolate Cranberry Bliss Cookies

Chocolate Cranberry Bliss

It wasn’t too long ago I made some Cranberry Bliss Cookies that I dubbed my favourite cookies so far this year. My parents were here this week so I wanted to make them again, but, finding myself with no white chocolate, I thought I was going to have to change my plans. Enter my 4-year-old helper: […]


Hello, friends! Today you can find me posting over on Kristen’s blog, Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  She’s hosting a Month of Solid Chocolate – HELLO, you all knew I’d be there :)  And I brought cookies! These cookies are so simple, so chewy, so HOT CHOCOLATEY, and you probably have all the ingredients […]

Saturday Sweets: Cranberry Bliss Cookies

Cranberry Bliss Cookies

Did you all experience the Cranberry Bliss Bar bonanza over the holiday season?  I can’t say I’ve ever had the original Starbucks version, but I did have several delicious homemade versions over the course of the Christmas season.  As much as I love the convenience of bars, I always feel like I’m taking in way […]

Saturday Sweets: PECAN PIE COOKIES

I have a brand new nephew! Best-laid plans for a scheduled Caesarean section didn’t pan out and sweet little Joshua made an early appearance into the world this weekend for my sister and brother-in-law.  This means another little boy for Theo to play with when they get a little bigger…now we just have to wait […]

Happy Cookies

Who doesn’t want to eat happiness? I know I do. You may know these as peanut butter blossoms, kiss cookies, or any other number of names – they’re a popular cookie with many variations, including my mini egg ones for Easter.  Growing up, one of my sisters dubbed these “happy cookies”, and the name stuck.  In […]
