Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

IMG_2113 F

Conquistador So I started thinking, and I couldn’t remember the last time I made cookies. I remember strawberry, nutella & balsamic reduction empanadas, and an obscene amount of key lime brownies. But not cookies. With being out of the cookie game for so long (yes there’s a cookie game, and I didn’t choose it, it chose me), I wondered if I still had it in me. Then, more importantly, I wondered if I even had anything to bake …

Summer! …Summer is here, right? It better be because it’s pretty hot out there. It could be just as hot here as it is in Florida but I wouldn’t complain. I’d be able to find solace in the fact that the heat will only last a few short months rather than 10 straight months with a cool breeze the other 2. And speaking of a few short months… I just wanted to make everyone aware …

Boom There are no words that can truly express the pure and utter joy I currently have. Not because we won the lotto or anything trivial like that. But because I can finally post these brownies.Let me tell you the story that led to this glorious moment. It all started when I was trying to think of something to do for my friends at Wilton. It had been a while since I posted for the …

Oh, plans. I’m not very good with planning. See, the original plan was to celebrate the 4th season of Game of Thrones by posting a recipe from the official food blog, Inn at the Crossroads, every week during the season’s duration. I even went as far as getting permission and a thumbs up from the awesome Chelsea M-C, the co-author of the blog; and the official cookbook, might I add. The plan was ballsy for …

Counting Stars Look!! Food!!! It’s been a while, let me see if I remember how to do this.. I know it’s been a long time, but if you recall, I was/am on a diet. Weight Watchers to be exact. While I’m already a chiseled hunk of man, I could still benefit from losing a few. Between starting it around March and today, I’ve lost 20 pounds! I’d say that’s alright considering I haven’t included any …

Lucky Strike I know, I hardly ever do recipes that coincide with holidays or special occasions. Well, except for Pi Day a couple of days ago… And fall. I love doing fall inspired recipes. Spring too, now that I mention seaso-ok, fine, I rather enjoy posting recipes that go with certain times and days. But this is different. It’s an actual holiday, and those I don’t usually do – until now. Some of you may …

  A Little Priest Happy Pi Day everyone!! I really hope you enjoyed this because I enjoyed writing it & putting it together! I found the Mrs. Lovett’s Pies poster but I made the Pirelli poster.. that’s how into it I was!  The pie is so freaking good, probably the best meat pie I’ve made. I’m sure Mrs. Lovett would be proud. I’ve been wanting to do a Sweeney Todd/meat pie post for a while, …

Sixteen Saltines So we’re trying to eat better in this house. It’s been a long time coming and I’ve been waiting for it. I’ve been wanting to get on a better track for a while now but I’ve either strayed or put off an official attempt. Well now I’m officially attempting. I’m getting older. I don’t want my reckless way of managing my health catching up with me. I got kids that I have to …
