That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

Here’s yet another treasure from one of my old cookbooks. This one is brought to you by the 1913 publication, Household Discoveries and Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book. 1, 2, 3, 4 cookies get their name from their ingredient list, which is based around 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour,

I like french fries, but I don’t like how heavy they feel in my stomach after I eat them. If you’re also a fan of potatoes as a side dish, you’ll be pleased to know that they can be just as delicious without all the grease and calories that come from deep frying! These wedges

I’ve really been into making hummus lately. Buying it in batches at the store, with the amount of it I can eat in a week, gets expensive quickly. Making it at home is way cheaper, even with this recipe, which is the most expensive because of the tapenade. Of the three I’ve made so far,

As delicious as my spicy hummus is, sometimes I need to mix things up a bit. Back when I used to buy hummus, I used to love the roasted red pepper kind. I also really liked olive tapenade hummus, though it was almost impossible to find, which is why I have to figure out my own

There’s a local antique shop in town that has a variety of items, from world war relics and period clothing to old dolls and kitchenwares. They also occasionally have some incredible finds, such as newspapers from the day of the first moonwalk or the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, or 105 year-old home medical and

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods). Fortunately for everyone involved, these

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends
