Peanut Butter and Nutella Swirl Cookies by Cravings of a Lunatic

Today we're whooping it up in Universal Studios. Having a blast. The conference is finished and now it's time to kick it with the famdamnily. We' spent 3 days in Disney and now we'll spend 3 days at Universal. I aim to be so tired when we get home that I need to sleep for a week. Like that'll happen. I'm only home for a few days before I flit off to Eat Write Retreat. It's totally worth it though. Learning so much and having a ball. So far my tummy has behaved relatively well.

Coconut Cream Cookie Stacks | Burning Down The Kitchen with Curry and Comfort

Coconut Cream Cookie Stacks by Cravings of a Lunatic

I just love easy recipe so much. I can't help myself, any chance I get to whip up a quick dessert I jump at it. I'd like to say there's some complicated or honourable reason for it.... but... I just like tricking people. There I said it. I love the idea of people thinking a recipe took a long time to make. I encourage people to think I spent hours in my kitchen working long, tiresome hours in order to satisfy their sweet tooth, and widen their waistlines. I love the feeling of bursting … [Read more...]

Coconut Chocolate Cookies | Burning Down The Kitchen with The Cooking Actress

Coconut Chocolate Cookies by Cravings of a Lunatic

There is just something about the smell of fresh chocolate chip cookies baking that just makes me happy and content. The scent of them just fills the house, wafting through each room until the whole house smells like a bakery. Add the lovely tropical scent of coconut to the mix and it's just sensory overload, in a good way. I can barely keep my hands off them as the finish baking. There are empty spots where cookies should be on the baking sheets. I would love to blame the kids but they are not … [Read more...]

Now here is a cookie any one can make. They are simple, fast and completely off the charts when it comes to flavour. I make a different version of these every year for the holidays. This year I wanted to kick things up a notch. I had scored some coconut M & M's on a shopping excursion to the states. So I hid them away knowing I would use them for just this purpose. I knew I would be so happy I saved them so they could add extra coconut goodness to my already fabulous coconut cookies. I was … [Read more...]
