Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Skillet Cookies

I don’t know about where you are, but this weekend was BEAUTIFUL in central Missouri!  Saturday the sun was shining and the temperature got up to 72!  In February!!  Paul and I bought each other new bikes for Christmas and this was the first chance that we have had to get them out.  We ended up riding about 13.5 miles on the Katy Trail.  Paul and I decided that Missouri winters are great because, even though we might have some snow and ice, we have the chance of spring-like weather at any given point in time, all without the humidity and bugs of spring!

Coffee Cookies

Certain things in life deserve a cookie dedicated to their existence.  Things such as coffee.  Coffee is a significant part of the day for a lot of people.  It’s the first thing I do when I get out of bed.  It’s a comforting thing to enjoy a cup of coffee, whether sitting quietly in the living room, or sitting with a friend in deep conversation.  The first – let’s face it – hour of some work days is spent around the coffee pot.  Coffee is certainly a big part of life.

So it seems obvious that coffee needs it’s own cookie.  I grew up dipping chocolate chip cookies in my coffee, but there is something about adding fresh coffee grounds to cookie dough that changed my life.  Se also: Cinnamon Toffee Coffee CookiesCinnamon Clove Coffee CookiesCompost Cookies and Coffee & Cream Oatmeal Cookies.  So naturally, straight up coffee cookies seemed like the next logical step.

The base of the cookie is similar to the above cinnamon toffee and cinnamon coffee cookies: a simple sugar cookie base, with some fresh coffee grounds added in.  I started adding fresh coffee grounds to my cookies thanks to Christina Tosi.   It’s pure genius – like the worlds of fresh vanilla beans colliding with teeny tiny chocolate chunks.  It’s just simply cookie perfection.  I used a holiday blend for these which had notes of chocolate and toffee.  You can use any coffee that you have, but use a good coffee that you would actually enjoy drinking, because the flavors of the beans do come through to the cookies.

Biscoff Crisscross Cookies

Once upon a time I went through a major infatuation phase with Biscoff spread.  Straight-out-of-the-jar and put-it-in-everything, I couldn’t get enough.  I am happy to report that I did finally grow out of the need to spread the stuff on everything.  However, if you step foot in my pantry at any given time, you can usually still find a glass jar with a red lid of this golden stuff.

And you better believe that I ran right out and bought a couple of new jars when I received my beautiful friend Katrina’s new cookbook: The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook.  Y.E.S.  A whole cookbook devoted to the sweet, brown sugar-y, cinnamon-y, oh-so-addictive spread and the cookies that are the sole reason I will choose Delta airlines.

Apple Spice Muffin Mix

A Warm Crackling Campfire candle is flickering in the kitchen, I’m sipping a warm mug of chai and outside I hear sounds of a football game going on at the University in town.  It is surely autumn, my friends!  I know it’s a favorite of many.

It’s a favorite of Paul’s and mine.  Just this weekend we were discussing the “smell” of fall in the Ozarks and how it’s so unique.  He’s actually getting a lot of that smell this week…I dropped him off yesterday for a week of solo backpacking on the Ozark Trail.   He decided a while back that he wanted to do a solo trip in the fall in hopes to have a retreat of sorts, but also to be able to catch the leaves changing.  So yesterday we drove south with his pack full and nerves in my stomach and I watched him walk into the Ozarks with everything he would need for the week on his back.

I think I chewed all of my nails off on the way back home.  But I cannot wait to hear his stories when he gets back!

Toffee Chocolate Chip Blondies

As it goes in the odd world of food blogging, I’m staring at these Toffee Chocolate Chip Blondies on my screen this morning while they have actually been long devoured.  I made them several weeks ago and of course, am just now getting the chance to post them.  And I am simultaneously wishing I had made a second ceremonial batch to enjoy while writing this post.

There is something about the cooler fall weather and a cup of morning coffee that makes me totally crave chocolate chips.  And more, dipping those chocolate chips, whether they be studded in cookies, brownies or blondies, into my piping hot cup of coffee.  My Grammy taught me do eat cookies that way when I was way, way too young to be drinking coffee.  But that was her style.  And my heart and soul are forever grateful.  My jeans, not so much.  But my heart – yes, ever-so-grateful.

And so as I am typing these words and sipping coffee, I am really, really wishing I had another (or two) of these Toffee Chocolate Chip Blondies to dunk and devour.  Sometimes dessert for breakfast is all you need!

50+ Back-to-School Recipes

I know it might seem weird that I, the mother of zero, who has been out of school for 6+ years, would be posting a rather large listing of back-to-school recipes.  But I have my reasons.  Today I am doing my first-ever live cooking demo on our local news.  Cue major nerves, people.  I’m so scared I’ll say “um” and “like” and “super simple” way, way too many times.

But nonetheless I am stepping out of my comfort zone this morning to talk back-to-school recipes!  I’m doing three different segments – one breakfast, one lunch, and one snack…all back-to-school themed and all including everyone’s favorite: bacon.  I’ll be sharing the recipes I’m making in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy this listing of back-to-school breakfasts, snacks, lunches & dinners.  All kid-friendly, all easy and all right here at your fingertips!

Confetti Cookie Milkshake

I’m not sure if there is a food group better suited for celebrating than sprinkles.  Yes, I just categorized sprinkles as their own food group and I won’t take it back.  Honestly, you can’t help but just adore sprinkles.

Sprinkles are definitely all we need when it comes to celebrating a certain blogging friend of ours who just-so-happens to be tying the knot soon.  You might know her – Sally of Sally’s Baking Addiction?  If you do know her, then you know she shares my love for sprinkles and for cookies.

And that is what today is all about – Sally & sprinkles.  Cheers to you, Sally and many years of marital bliss, and tons of confetti cookies to go along with it!  And maybe a confetti cookie milkshake or two, also!
