Finders Keepers…

Just a quick one today. As you can see some days running my blog can be torture on the dog. :P

It can be torture on my as well. Seriously…what was I thinking trying to work full time, write for Tablespoon, go on vacation, and have a blog post up every day? Oh that’s right I leave shampoo in the freezer…I don’t think anymore.

I was doing good until today and then I just hit a wall. The brick kind. Very sturdy. It won. This is short. :D

These are some simple sugar cookies that my friend sent me a link to. Told me they were good. She is the type of person when she says these are good, they are. So I followed the Pinterest link and found them.

Today’s giveaway is the ever useful kitchen bowls…you can make cookies in them. This is a nice set of six. To win the Trudeau Melamine Mixing Bowls in Assorted Bright Colors, Set of 6 leave a comment telling me how you found my blog. Have to live in the USA. Have to comment by Tuesday June 19th, 2012 at noon PST.

Chewy M &M Sugar Cookies

I didn’t change much to this recipe other than adding the full bag of M & M’s to the batch…I feel that was the better way to go. :) And I went with 2 1/2 cups when the recipe called for 2 1/4 cups of flour. I wanted them a little more sturdy for my trip.

To get the recipe go here.

  2. I found your blog not long after I discovered food blogs and became addicted. I think it was through Lisa at the Cutting Edge of Ordinary blog.

    P.S. I live with 2 cute cocker spaniels.

  13. I think I was looking at recipes around the time of the Canada/USA hockey game during the last winter olympics and the picture of the maple cookies posed with the hat was linked to another blog. I couldn’t resist! The rest is history…

  14. I can’t remember what blog linked to your site to get me here but I’m a regular visitor now.

  15. Kristan H says:

    I think I saw one of your recipes on foodgawker. I’ve been following your site on facebook since then! Love your site.

  16. Those bowls look awesome! Definitely would like some of those. And hmm…..I can’t remember how I found your blog! It was either from FoodPornDaily or from another food blogger, but whatever the case, your blog is now in my bookmarks bar among a select few other food blogs! :D

    Also, your dog is adorable. Maybe someone can think of a way to make those cookies puppy friendly ;)

  17. I don’t remember…probably on a search looking for something sweet to make. But now you site is bookmarked and I visit frequently!

  18. Bethany says:

    Oh geez, I think you came up in a google search when I was looking for pumpkin muffin recipes. Your white chocolate pumpkin muffins are still the best I’ve made!

  19. I found your blog when I was googling to find a good key lime pie recipe. Found it and have used it multiple times since (along with many other yummy recipes…thanks!).

  20. You gave me a business card when we sat at at the communal table together at the Herb Farm. I have been a loyal reader ever since!

  21. Google searched for culinary recipes in blogs. I’ll check back again to see what else you have in store.

  22. It was a couple years ago, and I can’t remember how, exactly. I’m sure it was from another blog or website.

  23. Samantha says:

    I found your blog a few years ago as the result of a search for “groundhog day desserts”. Lol, the result was a fail on my part but your writing and recipes have always kept me hooked :)

  24. I found your blog by a link from Pages, Pucks and Pantry. :)

  25. I’ve been reading your blog for years…don’t even remember how I found it!

  26. I found your blog through a link from another baking blog!

  27. I found your blog because a friend of mine knows you personally and had recommended that I check it out. The major food porn photos kept me coming back :)

  28. I googled some recipe – don’t even remember what – and your site popped up :)

  29. I found your blog through a friend of mine. She sent me the link and we love your smart-arse no-nonsense approach to everything. You rock!

  30. I’ve been reading you for a couple of years now and I don’t really even remember how I got here, but I know why I don’t leave…You’re real. And I love it.

  31. I was searching for food blogs one day, and I think I found yours through another blog – which one, I can’t really remember.

  32. It could be any of the communities we’ve been in together (TK, LJ, TN) – I’m not sure anymore!

  33. Seems to be a running theme…I don’t know what blog I was reading, but I followed a link. I can tell you when: around Easter this year, when you were debating whether to share your bean soup recipe. I said “yes, please.” And you did. I love your style, you make me laugh out loud!

  34. Hunting for a good recipe…and I found you. Well over a year ago, maybe two. And I haven’t regretted one minute of it!

  35. suzanne says:

    I don’t remember how I found your blog. It must have been about 5 years ago when I was unemployed and spent all day reading baking blogs instead of looking for a job. Yours is one of the few that I still follow now that I work full time and also have a 1 year old.

  36. Christine says:

    Some decadent recipe from a year or 2 ago brought me to this blog.. Ive read every post since!

  37. tiffany says:

    You used to be on the knot and that is how I found your blog.

  38. Samantha says:

    The first post I ever read on here was for your Snickerdoodle Muffins, which I found while googling for… I don’t know what. Then I found the Sweetie Pie cookie pie post, and the peanut butter cup torte, and you had me. I’ve followed since. =)

  39. I think it was through a link from another food blog — it was so long ago that I don’t remember clearly. But I’m glad I found this blog!

  40. You telling me about your blog..I’ve been pretty much reading since the beginning!

  41. Christine says:

    I was googling pictures of cocker spaniels and found CCS! clicked the link and said, COOOOL a great blog to with CCS!

  42. I found your blog through Vanilla Sugar Blog two or so years ago. I loved the decadent recipes and I have been hooked ever since!

  43. It was recommended by Google Reader. Thanks, GR! :)

  44. I know, I’m late. I just wanted to say that I made these cookies yesterday. I was VERY skeptical when I was mixing them because there seemed to be too much butter AND oil. They are fantastic! They are like the macadamia/white chocolate cookies at Subway. Come to think of it, maybe next time I make them I will substitute the nuts and white chocolate for the m&ms. Thanks.

  45. I saw your blog about the cookies on pinterest. The pics with your pup reminded me of my dog’s sad begging face on baking days at my house. I wish to be considered for the mixing bowls as mine have seen better days. Thanks!!
