Happy Halloween everyone, I hope you’re all having a spooktacular day!!!  I know we haven’t posted much this month, October has been crazy busy!  Shane and I ran our very first 5K today, the Monster Dash in Minneapolis – it was awesome, so much fun and so many great costumes to look at 🙂  Have fun tonight everyone!!!

Choco Chip Cookies! October 6, 2009

Sometimes basic is good and you can’t get much more simple and basic than good old chocolate chip cookies.  I made these last night using this recipe from the PPK blog and they came out pretty yummy, definitely not the best cookies I’ve ever had, but not too shabby.  The only change I made to the recipe was that I swapped corn starch for the tapioca flour.  I’d make these again for sure if I had a craving for some plain choco chip cookies!

Swedish Thumbprint Cookies October 1, 2009

First of all, Happy October!  October is by far my favorite month and I can’t wait to shove my face full of all the sweet goodness that Autumn has to offer 🙂  Ok, on to the cookies:

Last night while watching a couple of really bad horror movies (Sleepaway Camp 2 and Night of the Demons), Shane and I made Swedish Thumbprint Cookies.  I had a weird desire for thumbprint cookies and this recipe from Veg Bitch was absolutely perfect, very simple and the only thing we had to buy was the jam!  We used both strawberry and blueberry preserves and I even rolled some of them in some chopped peanuts, yum!
