Cooking Light? Try THEIR Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cooking Light Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cooking Light Magazine — my fav. I tend to tear my issue apart more than any other periodical to try recipes.  Then guess what, they published a gigantic (500 page) book of their recipes, The New Way to Cook Light – Fresh Food & Bold Flavors for Today’s Home Cook.  That is a mouthful.  So […]

Small Batch Ginger Cookies


This recipe for Ginger Cookies suits me – the ingredients are already here in the house. The batter is quick. And it produces a SMALL batch – just 2 dozen. Our two-adult household doesn’t need more. Larry thinks I’m nuts on this subject, but Christmas Cookie Exchanges kind of freak me out; too many cookies.

These Kahlua Chocolate Chip Brownies have been featured on Worth The Whisk before – June, 2009 to be precise.  They’re Larry’s go-to recipe, the one that made him famous by being featured in Bon Appetit magazine.  He brings them often to parties and family events. They freeze well.

Light Molasses Cookies


Larry is a crisp connoisseur. He likes cookies with crunch. He also loves when they have a spicy wallop. I prefer “al dente,” slightly soft. These Light Molasses Cookies ROCK for both of us – crisp crunchy edges, flavor that’s fairly intense. Then… right in the middle, awwww… a tender softness.

The weekend of my dad’s 87th birthday is also the weekend of Camp Blogaway with 90 passionate foodies in the local mountains. The conflict, of course, is how to not be a jerk of a kid. WHEW, Cousin Wendy hosted Easter at her house, which gave me a visit with my pop. ACK a gift!!  […]

Fresh Iced Cranberry Cookies by Worth The Whisk

Forgive me, Nestle. You often get my money for chocolate chips to make Toll House cookies, but this time I strayed. There was a packet of dried sweet cranberries in my pantry from a food conference goodie bag.  The cranberry package said “made for salads” — a dumb use, in my opinion. Go for the […]

Whenever a TV show had Husband “surprise” Wife with the news that a business associate was coming to dinner, I’d think, “Who really DOES that?” Surprise! Larry just did. Told me Tuesday that Bruce was coming over Thursday for a meeting and dinner. WHEW. I already had the makings for an entree post I’d planned, […]

Milk Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

It’s a long story getting to these macaroons, starting with the chocolate. On the way home from niece Nicole’s wedding in San Diego, we stopped at John and Gail’s. Gail had “too much” chocolate from an Erie, PA store called Stefanelli’s Candies. I took some off her hands.

Williams-Sonoma Sugar Cookies


Sigh — even a really cool message-stamping cookie kit can’t hide my icing skills. Thankfully, a sponsor at Camp Blogaway will be the Wilton cake decorating gurus because this shouldn’t happen. So, my Happy Birthday cookies for Larry started out lovely. But my little decorating kit box’s postage date of 1976 from college was a […]

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Last Sunday, a very chilly day, was just right for baking cookies. And I knew my box of Quaker Oats would have an oatmeal cookie recipe, so I looked… but, hmmm?? Was I mistaken? Oh wait, pop off the lid – there it was, on the inside.

Chocolate Almond Biscotti

Chocolate Almond Biscotti

Biscotti. Good dunking cookie, but not so fond of anise flavor. By consulting several basic recipes in my “collection” (read: stuffed binder), I devised a Chocolate Almond Biscotti. No anise, yes almond extract. And a chocolate coating because, uh let’s think here… CHOCOLATE. Larry gave the basic cookie a thumbs-up even before the second baking, […]

Double-Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookies from More Magazine


More Magazine is me me me. Besides being written for Women Of A Certain Age, the magazine publishes decent recipes. Such as “Cookies for Grown-ups.” I’m a grown-up and so is Larry. We like grown-up flavors and this particular recipe in the November 2009 More Magazine was definitely US: Double Ginger. AND Chocolate. AND Chunk. […]
