So since I'm still struggling to lose a few pounds to get bikini-ready (although I don't know why...there's a suspicious complete absence of pools here, despite the fact that Georgia is hotter than the very surface of the sun, but anyway...) and can't make any cookies for myself, I decided to make a batch of treats for little Cricket.
Here she is doing her best cookie gator impression.

A lot has been going on in my life and it's been harder than usual to find time to post. However, I think the best solution is just to dive right back into it. Shall we?
My friend Amanda and I used to work together (I miss you!) and it seemed like we were called upon almost weekly to bring in food for various occasions. It was a lot of fun, and it was so nice having a kindred baking spirit there. However, sometimes if she was busy or didn't have time to bake, she'd bring in salsa.
The best salsa.

Hello friends. This week I'm struggling to eat healthy, having insane food dreams, watching 30 Rock, and snuggling with Cricket.
I may have mentioned this before, but in an attempt to be healthier and shed a few pounds, I'm trying to limit my dairy consumption. This includes, but is not limited to the unofficial King of Foods...cheese. This experiment has taught me several things. I can go without meat and milk pretty easily. I miss butter and eggs for baking, but that's really it. The cheese is what gets me...and it's getting ugly.
I've been dreaming about pizza for about 2 weeks straight now. I've always liked pizza, like any other carb and cheese loving human...but it's gotten out of hand. I'm talking every night for about two weeks. Pizza dreams. I'm trying to hold out. How I know I've gone off the deep end: the other night I dreamed of stuffing my face full of just a handful of shredded Cheddar cheese. Not even the good kind. Just like...prepackaged shredded cheese. Gross.
However. You know what doesn't even need cheese it's so good? This bread.

How's everyone's new years resolutions going? If you're like me and you maybe need a little help making healthier eating more palatable...read on.
I'm switching to the night shift once again, so what better way to make myself stay awake than cooking a whole bunch of stuff while watching movies? How about NOT cooking stuff while watching movies?
Because you don't even have to cook hummus...get it? Lame, I know. You know what's not lame?

Okay, so I'm more than a little late on that. Admittedly. The holidays this year have been a whirlwind, but guess what? I trudged through the misery and sadness that is putting away all the Christmas decorations, so it's official. We're done with the holiday season...for now.

I am so sorry I've kind of taken a little leave of absence. I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off since about Thanksgiving so I've been seriously slacking.
I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful holiday spent with friends, family, and if you're exceptionally lucky...pooches in the snow for the very first time.
She always keeps that one foot up. The rest...they can get snowy but this one? This one I gotta keep dry.
After a few attempts to eat it...she realized that she absolutely loves the snow.

I'm sorry for doing this to you. I know I already have a few other recipes that involve Oreos...and it's really just not nice.
I don't know about you, but I'm ridiculously trying to diet a little bit before I go home for the holidays, just so I can afford to eat the heck out of some Christmas cookies.
But these. Are. So. Good.
