Big Fat Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies {Peanut Butter Triple Chocolate version included}

Because I bake a lot, I don't repeat recipes very often.  This Bakery Cookie recipe however, is one that I make over and over again.  It is my go-to cookie because it has the perfect taste and the perfect texture. The cookies are huge and substantial, chewy and chocolatey.

Lately I've started playing with the recipe and adapting it to different flavors.  I haven't nailed a peanut butter oatmeal version yet, but this Triple Chocolate cookie is perfect!  Add peanut butter chips for a Peanut Butter Chocolate version that will knock you over it's so good.

Cookies are absolutely my weakness, how about you?

Gooey Cinnamon Rolls {Breadmaker}

I have never been a great cinnamon roll maker.  I go a little crazy with the flour so they tend to come out too dry for my tastes.  This time I used a breadmaker to knead my dough, which kept me from adding too much flour and they came out perfectly!  If you have a breadmaker I highly recommend using it. I swear washing the breadpan by hand really isn't that bad.

(I wouldn't actually know because mine is still sitting in the sink from last week.  Ahem.)

Sweet rolls do not keep well, so if you can't polish off an entire pan, you can freeze the dough once you have cut it in slices  (Just place the slices on a cookie sheet.  Freeze completely.  Then throw them all in a ziploc freezer bag.)  Every time you want a cinnamon roll, just pull one of the frozen slices out.  Allow it to thaw and rise until doubled in size.  Then bake!)

You know you want a fresh cinnamon roll every day of your life.

This dough recipe would work well for orange rolls as well.

Banana Split Popsicles

I am camera shy. 

Come within 15 feet of me with a camera and I will probably drop-kick you or otherwise incapacitate most of your limbs.

It's not you, its me. 

Some of us just aren't meant to be captured on film.

These pops have that problem.  They're not super photogenic but they are so pretty in real life, so don't judge them too harshly. 

You're not tired of pops yet, are you?

Fresh Citrus Fresca

I have another zero calorie drink for you today.  I'd be hard pressed to call this a recipe, but adding some fresh orange slices and orange juice puts a whole new twist on Fresca.

Try it out sometime!

Cookies N Cream Popsicles


I haven't been posting much lately because life has been so. flippin. busy.  With the kiddos out of school the days just fly by.  I spent last week camping in the mountains with the youth from my church and learned a few lessons.

First of all, teenage girls are hilarious.   Seriously.  Hil.Ar.i.ous.  Teenage girls usually get a bad rap for being catty and judgmental but in actuality they have great hearts and wicked senses of humor to boot.  Watching teenage girls is a comedy routine in itself.  Sucking down vinegar packets, popping bubblegum all over their faces, putting toothpaste on their noses to attract Snipes... I probably need to adopt a teenage girl just for the daily ab workout.  I have no idea how their minds work.  I really don't.  But they are always entertaining in a "What the crap is going on??"  sort of way.

Second of all, teenage girls have a ridiculous amount of energy.  I like to pretend that I am still young and energetic but this trip reminded me that I am in fact, old.  Teenagers can stay up all night and not act like zombies the next day.  Ok, actually some of them act like zombies. I brought my kids' very realistic, and very hairy, Halloween rat, up to camp with the intention of placing it in strategic places to scare the pants off of some of my girls.   I was so tired I completely forgot about that darn rat!  Wherever these girls get their energy from, I need some of it.

Also, teenage girls eat.  A lot.  It was insanely hot when we were up there and I so wished we could have had some popsicles.  These ones would have done it.  Actually any ones would have done it.  Also a swimming pool full of ice cubes, if we're not being picky.

I had a great time up there with those cute girls but I was not at all sad to come home to my nice soft bed and a hot bubble bath.

On to popsicles?

I love the sound of Cookies N Cream 'popsicles' but let's be honest, there's cream in these so really they're just ice cream bars.

I won't tell if you don't.

I'm hoping to be back posting regularly, now that the crazy bits of my summer are winding down.  I have missed posting but I certainly haven't slowed down in the baking department.  I have lots to share with you.

Have a popsicle and enjoy your weekend!
