Cookies & Cocktails

I'm watching a special on the Cooking Channel called Cookies and Cocktails, and I just had to share this. The bacon chocolate chip cookies and the compost cookies (with pretzels and potato chips!) both sound like must tries. It is scheduled to be on several more times. Check it out.

Cookie Recipes

I originally wrote this post in December 2009, but got so busy that I forgot to publish it! Good cookie recipes are good anytime, so I thought I'd go ahead and share it this year.

I've been spending a lot of time lately going through my cookbooks and favorite recipe sites looking for cookie recipes to bake with my daughter. Then I started going through my blog reader and realized that everyone seems to be posting cookie recipes!

  • Chewy Sugar Cookie @ Scrap Big - Lisa Damrosch is hosted the blog at Big Picture Scrapbooking in December 2009, and shared this recipe. I love my sugar cookies chewy, so I can't wait to try this recipe.
  • lots of yummy cookies @ Simple Mom - This is a long list of edible gifts, but I thought the cookies deserved an extra mention!
  • Cardamom Snaps @ My World by Cate - I first tasted cardamom in a Christmas cookie an old boyfriend's mom made years ago. Cardamom is a sweet spice to me for this reason.
  • Irish Cream Delights @ My World by Cate - I think my hubby will love these. They look like Snickerdoodles only flavored with Baileys. (I liked them better than he did. Wow. Yummy.)
  • Holiday Baking and Gift Ideas @Everyone Likes Sandwiches - This is another long list of edible gift links.

winter reading -other people's picks

I enjoy making lists of books we've read, and since I've become a mama (and a blogger), I've started paying attention more to the seasons that we're reading. I think I may have even been introduced to this idea by Soulemama, so I thought I would share a link to her list of winter favorites.
