soft and chewy molasses cookies

About a month ago I bought a Taste of Home cookbook entirely full of just cookie recipes.  I had bought it in preparation of Christmas cookies but there are so many awesome recipes in there that I just couldn’t wait.

Ever since I met my husband 13 years ago he’s always raved about his aunt’s soft molasses cookies.  So over the years I’ve been trying new recipes that just might compare to his aunt’s recipe.

This one has done the trick!  These cookies are amazing, they are so soft with just enough spice.  This molasses cookie recipe is a keeper.  We both got hooked on these quickly.  I’m already planning on making them again for Christmas.  Enjoy!

Tuscan Soup

tuscan soup

My husband works outdoors and with the weather here turning cooler quickly, I always feel better being able to send him off the next day with leftover hearty soup.  So while searching my favorite cookbooks, I came across this simple soup recipe.

It’s quite a delicious little soup.  The beans and pasta add just enough extra bulk to be a filling meal.

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

peanut butter brownie bites

Boy I can’t believe how quickly the holidays are coming this year.  It feels like Halloween was just the other day but then I look at my calender and *poof*, Thanksgiving is only two weeks away!!  How in the world did that happen?!

Although I hate for the holidays to come so quickly, I am looking forward to the week after Christmas.  We’ve decided to both take that week as vacation during which we’ll tackle our kitchen!  We’ve been in our home now for over 10 years even though it was only to be our “starter” house.  And with the state of the economy right now, it looks like we’ll be staying for a few more.

We’ve already put a ton of money, blood, sweat and tears into remodeling our house and we’ve kinda maxed out what we’ll be able to get out of it when we sell.  So unfortunately we won’t be installing a gourmet kitchen but at least I’ll still be getting new cabinets, granite counters, tile floor and back splash.   It sure beats our old cabinets that I painted a few years back so I’m very excited!

Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies

oreo chocolate chip cookies

Warning…you will not be able to keep your hands off of these cookies!  They are simply decadent.  Deliciously soft and loaded with chocolate.  And the best part is that they combine two classic cookies, chocolate chip and Oreos!

This cookie recipe is a definite must try.  I’ll be making them again, and again, and again….  Well you get the point!  What could possibly be wrong with mixing Oreos and chocolate chip cookies?  I dare you to dislike them!
