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!

Spicy Gumbo Pasta with Smoked Sausage

Smoked sausage has been my jam lately.  It’s certainly a weekly staple in our fridge and we have tried it in almost any dish imaginable.  Our weeknight meals are far from glamorous.  We eat pretty simply, especially through the week.

Paul has been doing a lot of hiking since his backpacking trip last fall.  He has a few more planned already for this year and the activity has given him a completely new outlook on being healthy.  He’s never been one to spend time in the gym.  He would much rather get “exercise” by chopping wood, or some other kind of manual labor, or by heading out on a long hike in the woods.  He’s been going on hikes several days per week.  It has him feeling strong and healthy and of course, he had dropped several pounds without even trying.  And all of that has made him even more interested in paying attention to what he is eating.

Greek 7 Layer Dip

I am one of those football fans who, come late January/early February, becomes a football fan just in time for the Super Bowl.  (Read that as: just in time for Super Bowl food.)  I have nothing against football.  In fact, I used to be a pretty big fan.  I was once a Fantasy Football champ.  And am still a closet Tony Romo fan (go Cowboys!)  But it’s just one of those things that we don’t pay much attention to anymore.  And don’t think that we are discriminating – we really don’t pay much attention to many sports at all.

Except when it comes to the social aspect of sports.  We will never pass up the chance to spend some time with friends at a Mizzou football game.  We will never say no to an invite to a local restaurant or bar to catch a rugby game.  We usually try to make it to Busch Stadium once per year to catch the boys in red and you better believe that on Super Bowl Sunday, you will find us somewhere in mid-Missouri with our favorite snacks in hand taking in some football.

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.

Grandma Carolyn's Spaghetti Sauce

Next month will mark my the start of my fifth year blogging.  And over the years I have posted several recipes that I really grew up on.  Recipes that always take me back to childhood in some fashion.  Cinnamon Rolls, French cookies, party mix, and onion pork chops.

I love the classics.  I love the basics.  I love the recipes that have been made in my family for years and years and even more, I love to share them here.  Which is why I can’t believe it’s taken me four full years to get this one posted here: Grandma Carolyn’s Spaghetti Sauce.  I have never really been able to perfect this one, until yesterday, that is.

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.
