Last week was the week of the granola bar in my kitchen. It was also, unfortunately, the week of sticky fingers, sticky cupboards, sticky floors, sticky handles, and sticky clothing. Actually, it still is. I should do something about that.. I’ve been testing oodles of baked and no-bake granola bars for the cookbook, working hard […]

IMG_0287

It’s no secret that I am a huge cookie dough fan. As a child, I loved nothing more than eating cookie dough straight from the bowl. My best friend Allison and I used to buy those pre-made Pillsbury cookie dough packages and split the package for a snack. Totally normal. If you asked me what […]

IMG_9707

  I’ve loved thumbprints ever since I was a kid. Any recipe that tells me to jam my thumb into cookie dough and fill it with actual jam is a winner in my books. Did you ever eat those packaged cookies with the cream and gooey strawberry filling? Not technically a thumbprint cookie I guess, […]

Lucky for you, patience is not my strong suit. I made this recipe a while ago with grand plans to save it for the cookbook, but I really couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. Especially on Valentine’s Day. That would just be cruel. It all began when I saw an incredible looking cookie dough […]

Well, I didn’t end up making the Itty Bitty Carrot Cake Cookies, but I did end up making an off-spring!   Meet the carrot cake cookie in breakfast form. I cut down the oil (using applesauce to replace some of it) and amped up the protein, fibre, and healthy fats naturally using ground flax. In […]

He had a rocky start to 2011, but his strength carried him through some very tough times and he enjoyed a happy and stable summer and fall season.

Vegan Eggnog Crunch Biscotti + Giveaway!!!

IMG_5402

I think there’s a rumor going around that biscotti is difficult to make. At least, that’s what I used to think. I suspect I’m not alone! The other week I was at the grocery store telling this sweet elderly cashier about my biscotti making adventures. With a worried look she replied, “Ohhhh….biscotti…power to you…” as […]
