Grandma Lee’s “Unbaked” Cookies

Even though it’s September, the summer heat is still ragin’! My family and I are currently living in an adorable log cabin on a farm while my husband is in school. Unfortunately, there is no A/C in the cabin. We’ve managed to stay pretty cool thus far, but the last thing I want to do when it’s this hot is turn on the oven. But with no oven, how’s a girl supposed to bake her family a little something sweet for dessert?! I dove into my recipe collection and looked for anything that didn’t require an oven to prepare. Bingo! I picked up a handwritten recipe from my Grandma Lee. My Grandma Lee’s “Unbaked” Cookies will be the perfect treat on this hot summer day! No oven, no problem!

Cheer Me Up Brown Sugar Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong?  Well that was the type of week my husband and I had.  By the time Friday rolled around we were just ready for the week to be done and needed some cheering up.  Something sweet was what we needed!  And what’s better to warm the soul than a warm chocolate chip cookie straight outta the oven?!  Away to the kitchen I went to make just what the doctor ordered to cure a rough week, my brown sugar chocolate chunk cookies!  These will definitely turn our frowns upside down and end our week on a cheerful note! 😊

Easter Basket Blondies

Every Easter my mom gives my sister and I Easter baskets, left lovingly on her fireplace filled with lots of yummy chocolates and sweet goodies for us to snack on throughout the day.  I always tend to eat waaaay too many of those chocolates for breakfast, but there’s still plenty of sweets leftover.  Those leftover treats tend to be random little pieces of candy that I snack on over the few weeks after the Easter Bunny has come and gone, but I found a fun way to use up those leftover treats in a delicious dessert: Easter Basket Blondies!
