Nestle®Buncha Crunch Oatmeal Cookies

My local grocer was having a sale on all the specialty baking products they bring in for the holidays. I got my hands on a bag of the Nestle Buncha Crunch Baking Bits. Couldn’t pass up this gem! On the back of the bag was a recipe for oatmeal cookies and I knew I just […]

Lemon Blueberry Hamantaschen

To celebrate Purim, I always make hamantaschen…one of my favorite cookies! Much like a thumbprint cookie, these jam filled treats are a delectable dessert any day of the week or at your Purim feast.

Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

I had a great, good ol’ fashion sleepover with a girlfriend last weekend and she told me that the only thing I needed to bring (aside from my PJs, of course) was dessert. I wanted something quick, easy and that I could make with the ingredients in my pantry and I immediately thought of peanut […]

It was the ultimate care package, filled with chocolate lollipops, canisters of macaroons in a ton […]

Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies

It has likely come to your attention that a lot of my recipes feature Oreos. I’m not necessarily an Oreos fan, but my little sister is. She’s more than just a fan. I don’t think she can go more than a few days without fulfilling a craving for Oreos. They must be double-stuffed. So you […]
