Cuatro Choco Cookies {& updates}

HELLO!
Were you beginning to worry about me?

I do apologize; I’ve been holding out on you.

It’s been months now since I created this cookie recipe, but the impending busyness of life (a full-time job plus two side businesses, et cetera) has prevented me from sharing it with you. Fortunately, the time has come!

These cookies are for those of you who crave and adore chocolate as much as I do. They’re brimming with FOUR different kinds of chocolate! Is it overkill? No, not at all. I assure you.

With cocoa powder, melted semisweet chocolate, milk chocolate chips, and dark chocolate chips (or white chocolate, if you prefer), these cookies are not for the faint of heart. For those who prefer fruity or salty sweets, these may be a bit of an overload. However, you should at least give them a chance. 😉

Do I really need to say more? I feel like the chewy chocolate and oozing caramel kind of speak for themselves… Ah, what the heck, I’ll tell you more anyway.

Reese’s Popcorn

Spontaneous.

That is the word that best describes how this charming recipe came about.

Some friends invited me over to play board games, and I was trying to decide what snack to bring. A brief survey of the pantry offered me some peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, and popcorn.

Inside Out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

It’s hard to believe February is over already.
It seems it came and went in a flash.
And though we have to bid farewell to National Chocolate Lovers Month, we have much to look forward to in the future. Specifically one day in the future…

Tomorrow, March 1st, is– get ready for it– National Peanut Butter Lovers Day!

While I myself am more of a chocoholic than a peanut butter-holic, I know many people just can’t get enough of that creamy, nutty goodness. So this post is dedicated to all you peanut butter fanatics! But if you happen to be more of a chocolate lover, fear not; this recipe is for you, too!

Homemade XL Ritz Cookies

I have a confession.
I love my husband and would never do anything to hurt him.
But I did something bad: I gave him a sweet tooth.

Rob grew up eating healthy meals made by his mom, and he didn’t really crave chocolate and sweets. Well, that unfortunately has changed since he married chocolate-loving me.

Don’t get me wrong; we still eat healthy, and I don’t bake indulgent treats nearly as often as I want to. But I do fall into the tempting trap of the Sugar Monster on occasion, and I’ve unintentionally dragged Rob into this trap with me. I’m a horrible person.

But on a happier note, I made some awesome chocolate peanut butter cookies! After dinner the other night, Rob sheepishly told me he wanted chocolate. I wasn’t about to turn down a request for dessert, so here’s what I made!

Energy Bites

Well, I’ve had the draft of this post open on my computer for a few days now, trying to think of a clever way to introduce these Energy Bites. It’s not that they’re boring, they’re just… simple. Like Mother Teresa. Simple, but full of goodness.

Krumkake

Hello, everyone, and happy 2013!

Please forgive my absence, but I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and are enjoying the new year thus far! Rob and I moved into our new house a week and a half before Christmas, and then we left town to spend the holiday with his family. So we’ve been crazy busy, and my blog, unfortunately, has been neglected.

Now we’re back at home, and my new kitchen is finally all cleaned and set up for fantastic food-making! Furthermore, my new kitchen is now equipped with a new KitchenAid mixer thanks to my wonderful husband. Hurray! I’ve never owned one, so you can probably imagine my excitement. 😀

Aside from getting to spend lots of quality time with some quality people, that beautiful stand mixer was one of my favorite Christmas gifts. What was your favorite?

That good-looking bunch is my family. Aren’t they beautiful? God really blessed me by bringing them into my life. We gathered at Rob’s parents’ house, and we had a most joyful time!

Let’s get on to the food now, shall we? I’m a Midwest girl, and like most Midwesterners, my ancestry contains a fair amount of Norwegian roots. The Norsk Høstfest, America’s largest Scandinavian festival, is hosted annually by my hometown of Minot. As you’ve probably figured out by now, today’s recipe comes from Norway. Krumkake (pronounced KROOM-kah-kah), is a Norwegian waffle cookie that looks and tastes similar to a waffle cone.
