Tuesday, September 14

peanut butter + oatmeal chocolate chip cookies | une gamine dans la cuisine

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was hosted by the lovely Jasmine, of Jasmine Cuisine. She chose peanut butter crisscrosses.

And due my constant need to try various incarnations of peanut butter, I decided to bake/devour these peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies instead.

Thursday, September 2

I'm so easy when it comes to falling for foods based solely on their appearance. Of course these brownies have a sinfully rich taste and moist fudgy texture, but they're so pretty too!
