Enjoy!!

I’m less than six weeks from graduating from college. How in the world did that happen? It feels like last year that I was writing a post about brioche and my college decision (throwback alert) and whipping up treats in my freshman year dorm room microwave for my (short) series on Dorm Life Eats.

Crunchy toasted hazelnuts and Nutella make these chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies even more drool worthy!This is going to be short and sweet, 1) because my thesis needs to be turned into the printer tonight and I need to finish (OMG), and 2) because these cookies are so darn good they don’t need a whole lot of explanation. Let’s not dwell on that first point, alright?

Also – how much of a procrastinator does it make me sound like that I’m writing a post instead of my thesis? I just really had to share this cookie recipe. You guys were asking for it! We won’t dwell on that either. [Read more…]

Chocolate Chip Cookies + YOGA Tablet 2 Pro

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro

When I’m baking, I always have sticky fingers. As I bake, grabbing ingredients and measuring and mixing and whatnot, I always end up with splatters of flour on my face and fingers covered in cake batter. And…then I grab my phone, looking at the recipe I had written up, and see a little batter seep into the little crack in the corner, and puffs of flour covering the screen. Not ideal.

Best thing though? No longer a problem. The kind people over at Lenovo let me try YOGA Tablet 2 Pro and let me tell you – my baking situation is now WAY more ideal. Now when I’m in the kitchen, I don’t need to grab for my phone for the recipe, because I have it displayed on the tablet. I can blast my music waaay louder than my phone went, and I can stand it up (on the build in stand) wherever I want, so I can look at the recipe or change the music without even having to pick it up.

These Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies don’t use any butter but are still incredibly moist, flavorful, & delicious. You won’t be able to eat just one!

These Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies don't use any butter but are still incredibly moist, flavorful, & delicious. You won't be able to eat just one!As a mostly dessert blogger, I’ve tasted my fair share of desserts. Sugary, sweet, frosting-laden cakes, buttery croissants, cheesy breads, and candy filled confections have been part of my routine. Factor in being a college student, and I haven’t exactly been the healthiest eater of all time.

However, as I’ve experimented more and more with “healthier” baking – gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and sugar free desserts have all been featured on the blog – the more I’ve realized how tasty, healthier desserts are both possible and delicious. I’ve been trying hard to not just talk about trying to get healthy anymore, but actually doing it. It’s all about the margins people. [Read more…]

This recipe for The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies has been my go-to favorite for years. It's made extra special with the use of chopped chocolate, three types of sugar, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.Let’s talk about chocolate chip cookies. Everyone and their mom has their own chocolate chip cookie recipe, but as we all know, some chocolate chip cookies are just plain better than others. Whether you’re a warn-and-gooey person, a chewy person, or a hard-and-crunchy person, everyone’s got their favorite. Personally, I’m a crunchy-on-the-outside-but-barely-cooked-on-the-inside person. I love that chewy ooey gooeyness of a chocolate chip cookie.

Finding the perfect recipe though, was quite the challenge. I’ve made well over a thousand chocolate chip cookies in my lifetime, searching for that perfect chocolate chip cookie (or CCC, as I’ve so affectionately named it). My favorite CCC is from the amazing blog Not Without Salt. As the blog name indicates, these cookies have a sprinkling of sea salt, but they are also chewy, crunchy, gooey, oozey, and most importantly, chocolately.
