Texas Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Homemade cookies aren’t just cookies. Cookies can do a lot.  Can mean a lot. They can be a time machine to easier days, or a magical transporter to help you forget your current troubles.

Buttery Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m just going to say it… Chocolate Chip Cookies. There is NO ONE PERFECT RECIPE. Just like there is no one perfect pair of shoes, no one perfect car, no perfect mate, no one perfect place to live.

What bloggers were aching for a few weeks ago – pumpkin – was […]

It’s Back to School you all. Back to SCHOOL. They are IN SCHOOL. The summer went by in a blink…I swear I think I was only home for maybe 2 full weeks?  It was a whirlwind, probably a whirlwind for you, too.  Kids underfoot, or off to camp, or off on vacation, or off to […]
