Last week, when I really wanted cookies, I discovered that we were out of semisweet chocolate chips and brown sugar (although I have since discovered the missing sugar — it was hiding on an unreachable shelf). It could have totally sidelined my plans, but thankfully I have a very wise four-year-old. Will’s reaction? “Mommy, you […]

In thinking about today’s post, I thought it was a little ironic that I wrote about getting your kids more active on Friday and am writing about sweets today. But irony aside, these things can really coexist. Afterall, raising a healthy family and leading a healthy life is not about deprivation. It’s about moderation, balance, […]

Ever since Will was old enough to stand, he’s been helping me in the kitchen. Paige too. They can spin salads to remove water like nobody’s business. They know how to tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces, measure ingredients and sift. They can mix and fold. Will knows how to add the flour mixture to wet […]

Twas the afternoon before Christmas. No, really. It was. While Paige napped on Christmas Eve, Will and I set about to make some Oatmeal Scotchies – one of my very favorite cookies. We measured and mixed, and everything was going perfectly … until I discovered that we were out of the rolled oats (as in […]

Today felt like summer again, with temperatures that encouraged us to shed the socks and pants and re-embrace our leg-baring attire. When I felt how warm it was, I silently wished that the weather would make up its mind: is it winter or summer? But I didn’t really mean it. Summer can stick around all […]

I had every intention of posting my usual Fertile Friday post on Friday. It’s something that I have loved doing all summer, since I am so happy with the progress I’ve made this year. And it’s something that I want to continue until the growing is done. But this past week, I just needed a […]

Some people are bakers. They savor the exacting measurements that come along with creating perfect, moist, delectable breads and sweets. Other people are cooks, who find joy in the chopping, sauteing and forgiving nature of creating savory dishes. I know very few people who really love to both cook and bake. For me, I definitely […]

I first learned about snickerdoodles when I was about seven and read the recipe in my elementary school’s fundraiser cookbook. As much as I wanted to try to make them then and there, they were a little intimidating (partially because they were unlike any cookie I had ever had and partially because the only cookies […]

Will pulled up a chair to the counter the other day, as he often does when I am cooking. He was waiting patiently for me to give him the go-ahead to add chocolate chips to the firm cookie dough whirling in my KitchenAid Artisan Mixer. Usually, he helps sift and add the flour mixture to […]

When I discovered the recipe for these cookies, they seemed simple enough to try on a busy night. I did, and they were the softest, most wonderfully vanilla-y and butter-y cookie I’d ever had. I loved them. So, the tender, sweet goodness that is these cookies has become a fixture in my cookie jar. Speaking […]
