Sometimes you go to the farmer’s market and buy a half flat of strawberries. Sometimes you have a bunch of bananas you forgot to eat in their 32 second window or perfectness. Sometimes you put all of it together to make something magical. Strawberry Banana Bread is it.
Since it is National Cookie Day, I thought it was appropriate/necessary to create a cookie-centric recipe. I have some new ones on the line-up which will be out soon, but had to share something scrumptious today. I was thinking about how I could use Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chunk Cookies in some way, and then it hit me! Chocolate Chip Cookie Waffles with Whipped Cream. Yes, the cookies are IN the waffle. I know, amazing, right? They’re a liiiiiiiitle decadent, but totally worth it. Top them with freshly whipped cream, and a dusting of powdered sugar and, treat yo’self.
Leslie Knope would totally approve of these waffles.
As a bonus Otis Spunkmeyer is offering up a box of chocolate chunk cookies to one lucky reader. (Details are at the end of the post.)
It’s a bright and sparkly new year, and a new month for Blogger C.L.U.E. What a sweet way to bring in 2015! I was excited to see month’s theme, Something Sparkling and I was thrilled to be matched with girlichef, a blog chock full of awesome recipes.
As I scrolled through the plentiful posts (there were so many fantastic recipes to choose from) something about this Peach Buckle was calling my name, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I’d found the perfect treat.

For my birthday, my husband gave me a sign for the kitchen that reads, “I love cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food.” And this is the perfect example! A sip for me, a splash for the peaches.
This is one of the easiest, most delectable and simply decadent desserts to make.
If you’ve never had panettone, go get some. Eat a quarter of it. Wait a couple of days, then make this. Even if you’ve had the delightfully, pillowy light and sweet bread, you can go ahead and get one and eat a quarter of it. Then make this a couple of days later.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means it is time again for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I was delighted to stumble upon this event last year and was quick to sign up, and excited to participate. I was thrilled to see that the event supports Cookies for Kids Cancer. If you are unfamiliar with Cookies for Kids Cancer please take a few minutes to get to know them. I’ve thrown Bake Sales to raise money for their efforts in the past and hope to do so again soon.
