So if you dress up your veggies, and serve them up like these Zucchini Parmesan Bites, you won’t miss the meat. Plus, your wallet will equally be as happy as your bellies.

There is a lot more to love, though. These are cinnamon sugar coated butter cookies that are chewy and almost cake-like in the middle with a little crunch around the edges. The cookies taste of sweetened butter, a hint of vanilla and then our favorite, a little tang from cream of tartar. The coating is made from a generous amount of ground cinnamon and sugar. These are a very simple cookie to make. What is Cream of Tartar and Why Does It Need to Be in My Cookies?

Chewy Skor Toffee Bits Cookies. While grocery shopping a month or so ago, I was stocking up on the necessary baking related items when I noticed something new by the chocolate chips: toffee bits!

I immediately picked them up and stuck them in the cart, but Stephen gave me a look. I have a habit of grabbing ingredients with the intention of using them, but waiting ages to actually getting around to it. Brittany Cooks: Chewy Skor Toffee Bits Cookies. When I first moved away from home I was sad to leave my mom and sister, but was more excited then anything else about being on my own. That was nearly 8 years ago (seriously?). Now I’m half a planet away from my family, and I wish more then anything I could have spent mother's day with my mom. We skyped a bit after she had her mother's day brunch (including blueberry stuffed French toast and mimosas...jealous). At any rate, I’ll be home soon enough (sometime next month), and we can celebrate mother’s day and her birthday (June 1) together then.

Back in December, my awesome mother sent me a Christmas happy package along with a few gifts from my sister. A quick google search led me to these amazing cookies. Looks healthy to me!

We’d pick a few quarts, then my parents would make jam, and we’d have strawberry shortcake for dinner. Well, now I buy my berries at Publix, but the tradition continues! Freezer jam is SO easy. If you’ve never made jam or jelly before, then start with freezer jam. Start by buying a package of fruit pectin and some jars. Strawberry Bread Recipe. Five Days... 5 Ways: Try-it Tuesday: Tomato Basil Flowers. So, it’s never a good idea to start a post with a warning about how bad the pics are going to be, but I just can’t help myself in this case. I’ve been meaning to show you how to make the Tomato Basil Flowers from the Enchanted Summer Dinner Party I hosted several months ago, but the timing was never right…until it had to be.

In other words, I had all the “ingredients,” I was making them for dinner anyway, and, by golly, I was getting this darn tutorial photographed. However, after discovering that the batteries in both my Rebel and our back-up camera were dead (and I didn’t have enough daylight to wait for either to charge), I got a little desperate and decided to test out the camera on my Galaxy (phone).

Meh. Five Days... 5 Ways: Try-it Tuesday: Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip. If you were to look at what I’ve been whipping up in the kitchen on a whim lately, you’d be a little worried about my everyday eating habits. Last night, it was a from-scratch chocolate cake with homemade chocolate cream cheese icing—ugliest cake you’ve ever seen, but, Holy Jeepers!

Was it divine! And last week, my husband mentioned something about spinach, artichoke dip, and I paused, stared at him for a moment, then said, “I think I have all of the ingredients for that in the pantry!” An hour later, we were enjoying ooey gooey mouthfuls of cheesy, spinach-artichokey goodness. I snagged a basic recipe off the internet, and, with a few tweaks, achieved perhaps our favorite version of this rare treat yet. So, of course, being the nice blogger I am and all, I thought I’d spread the love (in other words, if my hips are gonna spread, so are yours!) The Tuesday Treat: Flourless Almond Butter Cookies.

We pulled up in our driveway at 3:30 this morning from a wonderful Christmas with Cameron's parents (with a detour on the way home to the only movie theater within 200 miles that was showing Les Miserables, and 3 stops at three different stores looking for a queen size electric blanket). So now today I get to clean up our car vomit (you know...everything you crammed in your car during vacation that just gets tossed 2 feet from the door when you're unloading in the dead of night) so that we can decorate our Christmas tree tonight.

We're bound and determined that we're going to do this...even if it takes us until the 4th of July. Christmas in July? Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread Recipe. Sure, He's Cheesy, But He's Oh So Cute.
