chocolate almond cookies

Since I’ve been feeding this little guy around the clock, I have a never ending craving for cookies. I froze some chocolate chip cookie dough before he came, but I had a bit of time to whip up something different over the weekend. These flourless chocolate almond cookies turned out very good, and (comparatively) healthy too!

grilling a pizza

We grilled pizza! Something we wanted to try all summer. Turns out, its not difficult at all, and makes a super tasty pizza! We made pizza dough in the bread machine, then made little pizzas with leftover chicken, bbq sauce, green peppers, onions, and zucchini.


We still have some more dough in the fridge for pizzas later this week too!

extra chocolate chip cookies

I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!

easy oatmeal waffles for two

We love making waffles on the weekend. Jon almost always puts butter and syrup on his, but this time we made a ton of fruit to go on top.

I like making extra waffles, but since there are just two of us, I usually make smaller batches. Here is a quick recipe for some yummy oatmeal waffles.

Mix together:

  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 Tbs melted butter
  • Bit of cinnamon

Pour into waffle maker and cook until ready! We made 4 waffles on our waffle maker. Enjoy!
