Barb’s Cookies: The Secret-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

I almost didn’t want to post this recipe, since it is such a treasured one. Here’s why: 18 years ago, my family moved into a new house.

Yellow Cake Blondies

Who doesn’t like yellow cake from a box-mix? Sure, it’s filled with things I can’t pronounce and flavors not found in nature. But every once in a while, I yearn for that nostalgic taste.

Ginger Spice Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks

I’ve always shied away from making spice cookies mostly because my uncle is famous in our family for his version. His are of the gingersnap variety, i.e. crunchy. This recipe, Ginger Spice Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks, is not crunchy, and thus I don’t feel like I’m invading on my uncle’s cookie celebrity. In fact, theseContinue reading “Ginger Spice Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks”
