Sweet Treats & a Recipe for Triple Chocolate Cookies

Sometimes, you need chocolate. Sometimes you need cookies. These beauties will take care of both of those things. They’re packed with chocolate, are super-soft, and get their nice texture from a wee bit of coconut and oats. Oh, yes. They’re lovely. Plus, if you share them, you’ll basically be loved by all… because there’s no […]


Family Love & a Recipe for Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookies

  We had a big family barbecue over the weekend. It was lovely because the whole family was there; well, everyone who lives around here and not in another part of the country.

Chocolate Fixes & a Recipe for Trail Mix Cookie Balls

Sometimes you need a little sustenance. More often than not, that sustenance should involve chocolate. Best-case scenario: good quality dark chocolate. Worst-case scenario: chocolate chips. I’ll take either of ‘em, any time, any place. It’s very important {yes, VERY important} to include chocolate in your every day life. It’s crucial for your sanity. Especially when […]

Trying New Things and Mango Sticky Rice

I was walking down a Bangkok street one night several years ago when a woman handed me a little green package. I was in try-anything mode, and C encouraged me to try it. He had also had one, along with a little cup of green goo. I’m sure it wasn’t actually green goo, but that’s […]


She’s Some Kind of Wonderful & Coconut Macaroons

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, the day when we all spend time with our moms and give thanks for all that they’ve done for us. It’s the day when we give them our full attention, instead of the other way around for once, and show them our appreciation for being so downright amazing. I love […]


A Las Vegas Wedding and a Last-Minute Cake

My brother went to Vegas last week and got married. It’s not what you think. Elvis was not involved, nor was Mike Tyson, a tiger, or a wolf pack of any sort. It was just him and his then-fiancé. They came home late Saturday night, and my family decided to have a nice barbeque lunch […]
