Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This blog post could easily be only four words: “These cookies are amazing!” 🙂

Having only access to two cookbooks is really giving me a chance to scour through them to find new and interesting recipes. This experience has really opened up my eyes to the fact that I likely don’t give my current cookbook collection a chance, I look through and if I am not immediately impressed by a photo or a concept, I flip the page. But with only two books available to me (since the rest have been packed), I have to actually read the recipes to determine if the flavour combinations are something that I want to try. I can’t remember the last time that a month’s worth of my baking has all come from the same cookbook.

Doughnut Muffins

Jamie’s mom, Laura, recently gave me a few cookbooks (I know, like I need more cookbooks!).  Anyway, these were the kind that you get from your local church or Women’s Auxiliary Club.  What I love about these types of cookbooks, is that the recipes are always tried and true, and it is all about sharing a passion of cooking with other people who are just as passionate.

While I was flipping through this small spiral bound book, a recipe jumped off the page at me – Muffins that Taste like Doughnuts!  What?!?  I knew immediately that I had to make this recipe. 🙂

Coconut Macaroons

Jamie and I are in the middle of getting ready to move.  In preparing our kitchen, and my precious cookbook collection, I left out only a few cookbooks and packed away the rest.  What that means, is in the next few weeks be prepared for a spike in recipes from Make it Paleo appearing on Ruby Reduction 🙂

Oatmeal Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies

These past few weeks, I have found myself craving oatmeal raisin cookies.  It must be a signal that my body wants to go into hibernation mode and stock up on hearty foods (I said hearty, not necessarily healthy! 😉 ) It is a common site for my 3pm coffee break to see me happily eating an oatmeal raisin cookie with my delicious concoction of half coffee/half hot chocolate with double milk.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackle Cookies

I don’t think that there is a more perfect flavour combination that chocolate and peanut butter. 🙂

I tasted my first crackle cookie last Christmas.  My friend, Kerri had brought them in as her contribution to our office cookie exchange.  I was hooked on my first bite, they are absolutely delicious.  They taste like a brownie – perfect!

Caramel Almond Cookies

I was in the grocery store and I discovered that Kraft made their caramels in an add-in size!  I have used their traditional square caramels in the past to make Easy Salted Chocoate Caramels, but now a whole other world of possibilities had opened up for me; I could add caramels to cookies!

Raw Coconut Cherry Ball Pops

I know it was only a couple of weeks ago when I posted the Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ball recipe, but I came up with another creation this weekend, and I just couldn’t wait to share it with you!

My friend, Kerri, and I were talking about how great raw cookies are and that she had shared the link to the cookie ball post with some of her friends. The feedback was that we might be in the middle of a bliss ball revolution! (bliss ball being a raw cookie ball)  I heard their battle cry and was determined to come up with a new bliss ball creation 🙂
