These pecan spice cookies are what would happen if you crossed a Pecan Sandie with an oatmeal cookie I think. They’re crisp on the outside, chewy in the middle, and packed with spice that doesn’t overwhelm. Fall has become my new favorite season thanks to all the gorgeous trees up here in Wisconsin and plenty of sunshine. I’ve been buried in homework, quizzes, and exams, but have been finding time to get outside to enjoy the perfect weather every day! Continue reading “Pecan Spice Cookies”

I have made 4 different recipes for food/treats in the last few days, and they all failed. I even spent 5 hours working on a bread that ended up doughy in the middle. It was all so very, very frustrating, so I gave up on Pinterest recipes and went to the library. I loaded up on cookbooks and food magazines, plus a few health-related ones. I ended up finding an indulgent dessert recipe in my health magazine that I had to try, and it turned out perfectly! Sometimes you have to go back to the basics. Continue reading “Coconut Cupcakes”
