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.

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!
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!
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 🙂
It is difficult to satisfy your craving for baked goods in the summer-time. I have a hard time turning on the oven to whip up a batch of cookies, when the temperature inside the apartment is close to 30°C.
But, I have found the perfect solution for this dilemma – Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls!
Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie? It really is the cookie that all other cookies are compared to. It makes a lot of sense. Chocolate, butter and sugar, well, it is pretty much perfect.
Everyone has a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe that they stand behind. I have mentioned before that my favourite cookie recipes involve rolled oats, but this recipe isn’t my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe. I tried this one after my Mom gave me a pile of cookbooks when she cleaning out her kitchen.
The food blogging duties will be handled today by Connie’s husband, Jamie.
It’s funny how our taste preferences have a tendency to change or evolve with age. If I were to sit down little nine year old Jamie and ask him to name his three favourite vegetables, I can almost guarantee the list would not include broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts. However, 25 years later and rarely a day goes by in which I’m not enjoying a combination of all three.
I love coffee! This wasn’t always the case, and I feel that it definitely is a flavour that you start to appreciate as your tastebuds mature. I tend to lean towards flavoured coffee, which is what makes up my entire Keurig collection. In fact, my favourite coffee flavour combination is mocha (half coffee/half hot chocolate) Yummy!
Today the role of guest foodie will be played by Connie’s sister, Cherie.
I am constantly looking for healthy recipes and ways to make not-so-healthy foods healthier. I am known for adding protein powder to just about anything, and sneaking veggies in where they don’t belong – or so I am told 🙂
Unlike my sister, I tend to avoid cooking with Bacon, much to my husband’s dismay. I was excited when Connie sent me a link to a recipe for cookie dough balls; which are healthier than they sound.
I have mentioned before how I love getting supermarket check-out cooking magazines. Well, I once again gave into my impulse and grabbed the January/February issue of The Food Network Magazine. The cover featured a delicious bowl of chili that caught my eye.
