Lemon Cookies (!!)

Recipe: A lemon cookie. Plain and simple.

In October, my friend Beth got married in a beautiful beach-side ceremony. As part of the reception, she and AJ had the most amazing cookie table ever – they had to’ve had around 15 different types of cookies and they all looked fantastic. One of the varieties in particular caught my eye though and basically I just gorged myself on that one cookie all night. And then some the next day. And it was awesome…. Anyway, they were a simple little lemon cookie and I decided today that they needed to be recreated. Because lemon = yum.

Chocolate peanut butter cake…meh.

Recipe: A chocolate sour cream cake with a peanut butter icing, covered with a chocolate-peanut butter glaze.

Sooooo it’s Sunday. And it’s been a bizarre weekend. Solution? Peanut butter and chocolate. Always.

I also recently had a chocolate peanut butter cupcake that was so rich it made me feel sick, so that also made me wary. But it’s peanutĀ  butter and chocolate so I realllllly wanted to try it. Because everything with those two ingredients should at least be given a shot.
