Recipe: Cereal Cookies

Today was Foodie Friday number 24! For once we actually have a decently stocked fridge, so choosing what to make today was more difficult than I had anticipated. In the end, I discovered that we had a ton of cereal in the pantry, and there had to be something interesting I could do with it. Then I found the recipe that inspired today’s creation.

These Cereal Cookies are crunchy, sweet, and a tasty way to use up the any cereal left in the box that just isn’t quite enough to make into breakfast. You can choose any flavour or type of dry cereal you please, so experiment with different exciting flavour combos!

Recipe: Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies

Today was Foodie Friday number 23! The day began slowly, with rain clouds hoovering over the house, and my blankets claiming them as one of their own. Nonetheless, I eventually got out of bed and decided to make cookies. What better way to enjoy a lazy day than with a comfort food like cookies?

These Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies are thick and fudgy, making them a delicious way to indulge that chocolate craving. We all crave the foods and sweets we love once and a while, and sometimes we just have to give in. Life’s too short to eat food we don’t enjoy eating. I used chopped milk chocolate for my cookies, however, any kind of chocolate chunk or chip would be fair game.

Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Tacos

Today was Foodie Friday number 18! I planned ahead for this one. I actually made the recipe earlier on in the week because I was too eager to see how it was going to turn out to wait. The aspect of using a muffin tin for something other than muffins, and the thought of the smell of cinnamon apples, was too exciting to wait for.

These Apple Cinnamon Tacos are a marvellous, messy, sweet treat. The crunchy taco shells and soft apples, all wrapped up in cinnamon and sugar, may be served just the way they are. If you are looking to add a little more, they may be perfectly paired with your favourite caramel sauce or vanilla ice cream.

Recipe: Sugar Cookies

Today was Foodie Friday number 17! Valentine’s Day was on Tuesday, so heart shaped cookies felt obligatory.

The recipe for these particular cookies is adapted from a friend’s. A little over a year ago, she invited me and a few other friends over to make this recipe and decorate freshly baked festive shapes for Christmas. There is something so simple and lovely about cookie decorating with friends or family. Its so fun to see everyone be creative with the shapes and decorations, and even if someone isn’t too confident about how their cookies look, no one can be disappointed in eating them!

These sugar cookies are sweet, crunchy, tasty, easy, and completely customizable. Whether you choose to cut them into hearts like I did, or any other shape you can imagine.

Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake

Today was Foodie Friday number 16! I must confess, I spent the whole day out shopping for school supplies, my Mom’s Birthday, and Valentine’s Day, therefore I didn’t actually make this week’s recipe today. I made it a few days ago. Nonetheless, the result was successful, tasty, and I believe that’s all that matters.

This Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Cake, is just sweet enough to be treated as both a snack and a dessert. The classic flavours of an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, (including the subtle spice of cinnamon and delicate tastes of raisins and oats) are deliciously delivered in chewy slices.

Recipe: Applesauce Spice Cake (ver.1)

Today was Foodie Friday number 14! When I woke up this morning I didn’t have any idea what to make today, until my quiet little sweet tooth decided to speak up. I know I made a cake last week, but I couldn’t help myself, so I made another cake today. Plus, in my own defence, the applesauce in our fridge was getting old so I had to find a way to use it up.

This Applesauce Spice Cake is one of at least two versions you are likely to see on this blog. The spices are subtle, and the applesauce combined with the olive oil, makes this cake a fluffy treat. This cake may be served with your favourite frosting, or without. You choose!

Recipe: One Bowl Basic Vanilla Cake

Today was Foodie Friday number 13, and the first Foodie Friday of 2017! Naturally that means dessert. More importantly that means cake. Plus, my family finally chose to break down and purchase a stand mixer, so I had to make something celebratory. My father also decided to make a batch of whipping cream, so I felt obligated to make something that he could enjoy with it.

This One Bowl Basic Vanilla Cake is a quick, easy, and delicious dessert to make for when you’re having guests over, or you just feel like treating yourself. This cake has a subtle vanilla flavour that can easily be paired with a variety of toppings, such as fresh fruit and whipping cream.
