Double Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

Chocolate and coconut come together to create an epic cookie that you will want to make on repeat all summer. These have subtle tastes that leave a big impact. Soft, chewy, these will become your new favorite, go-to cookie.

This is IT people. This is the cookie you need. You want. You MUST have. I have somehow stumbled upon the simplest cookie that has the perfect combination of flavors.

Toffee Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies

Buttery, soft and chewy cookies filled with chopped chocolate, espresso and toffee bits. Everything is so right about this cookie.

I feel like every time I make a new flavored cookie, it becomes my favorite. And this is coming from someone that honestly doesn’t eat a lot of cookies. Yes, I make cookies every week. But they are mainly for packing in lunches and for a quick dessert for the kids and my husband after dinner. Cookies are definitely not the first thing I grab for when I want a sweet fix. With that being said, there are a choice few cookies that I will go to first. Most of them revolve…

To be honest, I really wanted to call these Christmas crack cookies. Buuutttt, I thought that might not be appropriate. You never know who you may offend these days, so I tend to play it cool and neutral. That’s partly why you won’t see any political posts. But mainly that’s because I hate talking politics with anyone. It can stir up..

Halloween Pudding Cups

Rich and creamy, homemade chocolate pudding is the base of these adorable Halloween themed dessert. A little Oreo “dirt” is thrown in and cookies serve as gravestones. Whipped cream ghosts finish off these spooky, cute little pudding cups.

So, I couldn’t resist sharing one last cute, Halloween-themed dessert. I originally made these for my youngest daughter’s daycare party, but it got rescheduled, so I ended up bringing something else instead. Since I had the pudding already made in the refrigerator and the rest of the ingredients sitting on the counter, staring at my every time I walked by, I decided I should just make some for us anyway. I mean the pudding had to be eaten anyway…

Hello Fall! I welcome you with open arms. I am ready for cooler temperatures, brilliant colored leaves, and apples! We went on our annual apple pick at our usual orchard this past weekend. The day was perfect- the sun was shining down on our faces, and a cool fall breeze was blowing through the apple laden trees. We were so gung-ho that we picked around 140 pounds of apples. We always go a little overboard, but I must say, I love it! We are down to our last few jars of applesauce from last..
