Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies*

Cookies cooling on a cookie rack

*and Peanut Butter

I cannot be the only one that has more than a few bananas in their freezer.  You know what happens; you buy bananas with the best of intentions, and then, by the end of the week, you find you have a couple of bananas that are definitely over ripe sitting on your counter.  Maybe you have even encountered a fruit fly or two.  Seriously, where do these things come from!  So, you do what everyone else does, and throw the bananas in the freezer with thoughts of banana bread and muffins as you shut the freezer door.

Salted Caramel Butter Cookies

Salted Caramel Butter Cookie

I felt the urge to bake this weekend.  I guess it is my version of cabin fever.  Now that spring is right around the corner I have a burning desire to whip up sweet treats.  Or maybe it is because Christmas is so far in my rear-view mirror that I can justify baking again?

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Cookies on a present

With the holiday season in full swing, it is time to think about Christmas baking. I know a lot of people have already started….but the problem I have with starting early, is that Jamie and I raid the freezer of our sweet treats, and we end up having to bake twice as much!

Peanut Butter – Chocolate Duos

Cookies out of the oven

Last week I received my regular issue of What’s Cooking magazine from Kraft. I love this little mail-out. The recipes are usually quick and easy, and it is always fun to look at glossy food pictures to find inspiration.

This issue was no exception. I found a few recipes that I wanted to try, especially this cookie recipe. When I opened up the magazine to this recipe, I knew that I would be baking this weekend. I consider myself lucky that my colleagues enjoy Monday mornings when I bring my baking in to share 🙂

Easy Lemon Cookies / Happy Birthday to Me

Easy Lemon Cookies

Today is my birthday and because lemon is likely one of my most favourite flavours (beside bacon!) I thought I would share with you this super easy and delicious recipe for lemon cookies! 🙂

It is really hard for me to believe that today I am turning 40!  When I was a child, I used to think that forty was so old!  But as I turned the page on a new decade this morning, I don’t think forty is old at all!  I feel that I am in such a good place right now that I am embracing forty with open arms!  I have a husband who loves me, a fabulous family and the greatest group of friends!  I love my life, and wouldn’t change a single thing about it!

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.
