Wednesday Ramblings

Every wonder what I carry around in my purse?

If yes, then you are in luck, Kristan and Shelly of That’s What We Said had me rifle through my bag and share it all with you.  I promise you I’m kind of boring but I reveal three obsessions that I have.  Do we share any?

It’s National Chocolate Chip day (I know this thanks to Averie, check out her roundup!)  So here are some of my favorite chocolate chip recipes, most of which are white chocolate, because I prefer it to milk or semi-sweet so I am saying that today, it counts.  Some of these are from my early days so don’t judge the photos!

My Go-To Chocolate Chip Cookie
Snicker’s Cookies
White Chocolate Confetti Blondies
Brown Butter White Chocolate Chip Blondies
Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies (one of the most popular on the blog)
Compost Cookies
Biscoff Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies

If that’s not enough, stay tuned for Monday for our next Milk Bar Monday post.  There just might be some chocolate chips showing up in yet another stellar cookie recipe.

I am guest posting for Claire today at The Realistic Nutritionist.  She is in California enjoying some sunshine (and probably a glass of wine!)  I made a quick and healthy Mexican Quinoa Salad with a (healthy!) Creamy Avocado Dressing.  Head on over and say hi!

Paul and I are headed off to the lake for a quick getaway tomorrow afternoon.  I don’t have a laptop anymore and I don’t get any cell phone service.  This is all OK by me because:


I will be doing all of these things and relaxing until I can’t relax anymore.  See y’all back on Monday!

    Do you know what’s a bit scary? I have almost exactly the same stuff in my purse, right down to the 18 tubes of lip gloss and turquoise wallet.

    Have a wonderful few days away!

    Thanks for linking me up….and I love all those choc chip recipes you posted and I agree about white choc being just as important as the others. Love it! I swear, we need a baking meetup one day b/c I think we share very similar taste in cookies!

    Have fun today, without an internet connection to the outside world. ENJOY!

    I need that “Lake Rules” board for my every day life! Enjoy your time at the lake, Cassie and Paul! We all need a midweek mental health day… I took mine last week at a local Texas waterfall!

    I had no idea until I just left Averie’s site that it was National chocolate chip day. Wish I could keep up with these holidays!

    Hey Cassie! I love your purse! I know this is a random question, but did you just recently purchase it? If yes, can I ask where you got it? I am a huge purse person and I have been searching for a black purse with a pocket on the outside, pretty much just like yours.

      Hi Jenn! I bought it at Target about 8 weeks ago, on clearance for $10. It’s their Converse brand. I hope you can find one like it, I love this one! I was there last week and noticed that they have some new styles too!
