I am so glad you left me a message, and that you are back...but no one can blame a girl for letting her new one take presidence! Babies! Awwwww.....

Big hugs,


Effectivement, ils sont superbes ces cookies!


Those cookies look great! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us...

It looks so good! That oozing chocolate is to die for.
I'm tagging the recipe!


That cookie looks so yummy!

I was wondering about the vanilla sugar. Is that regular granulated sugar with vanilla or powered sugar with vanilla?


omg, chewy chocolatey paradise...thanks so much, I'll have to try it sometime!

Besides mayo and Velveeta, I find that older cookbooks [and especially cookbooklets] really love margarine. That's a deal breaker for me.


darbunk - I make my own vanilla sugar by keeping a jar full of granulated sugar into which I slip several vanilla beans split lengthwise.


Hi! I'm Brooke, and I was wondering if you could do me a favor. It is quite a challenge. I have spoken with countless food-blog owners, asking if they think a dessert of this type is possible, and all have been stumped. My question is:

My mother's birthday is coming up, and since she loves it when I bake, I really want to make her some kind of special dessert for her birthday party. The problem is that both her a I are allergic to:

fruit (except for green apples, pears, mangoes, and apricots)
fruit juice
vegetable juice
artificial colors
artificial flavoring

If there is ANYTHING special or yummy you can think of for me to make for her, I would GREATLY appreciate it, as I said, I am down to my last hope!

Any suggestions would be a lifesaver!
Thank you!


I made these cookies over christmas holidays (substituting chopped pecans for the walnuts, as i has some left over from my thanksgiving baking), and they were a big hit!
Thanks for the recipe!


Absolutely beautiful! I'll have to try this soon. Thank you for the recipe!


I have a cousin who did this too -- exchange some of the flour for ground up oats! I'm sure this tastes wonderful...your picture is certainly tempting! :)


Finally baked your cookie recipe and they are absolutely fabulous - a worthy amalgamation of oatmeal-raisin and choc chip cookies. So good, in fact, that my BF forbade me to share any with the guys at work. The greedy gus wants them all for himself! This is now the new benchmark for cookies in our home. Thank you so much for sharing. I enjoy your thoughts, writing and high standards.


I baked these yesterday for my child's school's bake sale- I had to do it without the nuts but they are still just amazing! I thought my family would finish them before I ever got them to the school. Really, a wonderful cookie.
