Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

I know, I know, another cookie recipe. But this one isn’t as much a cookie recipe as it is a power-bar-health-nut kinda recipe. Sure it has two kinds of sugar … ok, three kinds if you count the honey, but the rest of the ingredients are pretty healthy. Or so I’m led to believe reading […]

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

I’ve had the ingredients for these cookies lying around for some time now because after reading the original recipe I had the full intention of getting on my inner Jackson Pollock. What do you think? I’m thinking they look pretty damn good. Call up my agent, I see a cookie gallery show in SoHo in […]

You know what sucks about everyone around you getting the flu? Getting the flu yourself. Dr. Fiance got sick last weekend right before the super bowl party and all week long I stood strong and seemed to have missed it. Even the dog came down with a wicked case of the nasties last weekend and […]

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Black Walnuts

After what seems like a few months without rain here in St. Louis, today has been damp and stormy. I have spent most of my non-photography hours reading up on marketing for my business (yawn) and enhancing the SEO for my various websites (snore). Both of these activities are crucial for my business, but boy […]
