Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Somehow in the past week, I got it in my head that I needed to have some oatmeal cookies.  Not oatmeal raisin, not oatmeal chocolate chip, not oatmeal peanut butter- just plain old ordinary chewy oatmealy-butter-and-brown-sugary cookies. I found several recipes that made me drool, and ended up settling on this one, because they looked… Continue reading Chewy Oatmeal Cookies


Lemon Poppyseed “Muffin Top” Cookies

Lets be real.  The famous Seinfeld muffin episode is so right on.  Nobody wants the bottom part of a muffin, because the top is where it’s at.  The top has all… Continue reading Lemon Poppyseed “Muffin Top” Cookies

The recipe was… Continue reading Chewy Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

Butter Butter Cinnamon Chip Cake

I have seen, oh, hundreds of recipes on Pinterest over the past few years using a mysterious ingredient called a cinnamon chip.  I have hunted, oh yes, I have hunted for these babies at every regular grocery store in the world.  At Target.  At Walmart.  At Michaels and Joanns, and every single baking specialty store.… Continue reading Butter Butter Cinnamon Chip Cake


Goofy’s Kitchen’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza

One of my favorite things to do when I am in Disneyland is to have brunch at Goofy’s Kitchen.  It is a buffet-style character breakfast, meaning Disney characters walk around and come up to your table while you are eating and pose for photos with you.  I will admit without shame that I ate there… Continue reading Goofy’s Kitchen’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza
