Welcome to the redesigned cookieandkate.com! I’m not quite finished working on it, but I couldn’t stand to keep it in hiding for any longer.
Good news! Cookie got her bandage off yesterday. Just a few more long days with the cone around her head.
I’m mad at these muffins. Mad because they took me three tries to get just right yesterday. Mad because the third variation turned out so well that I filled my belly with muffins before I went to bed last night.
Cookie and I have been visiting the vet three times a week lately. We don’t mind the excursion. The girls behind the desk are fun to be around and Cookie loves the attention.
Other potential titles for this post included, “Three of my favorite things” or “Recipes I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You About”.
Dear Friends, Cookie and I are struggling get our acts together over here. Cookie is sporting her new, larger “cone of shame”.
Thank you all so much for your concern about Cookie. If her graceful three-legged leaps off the couch and romps through the snow are any indication, she is on the mend.
(I’ll get to the recipes in a minute.) Cookie got hurt this weekend. My worst fear about moving to this house came true when she raced out of my new front door toward the nearest busy street.
True or false: this week has been a doozy. It has definitely been a doozy for my circle of friends. I don’t know what is in the air or the stars, but the week has been oddly ripe for health procedures and boy drama.
Afternoon forecast: too many decisions up in the air. I stayed up to an ungodly hour last night trying to plan out what I need for my new [rent] house and where to put everything.
Things have not been going as planned lately. Before I dive into yesterday’s fiasco, I’ll tell you that this recipe was supposed to be a curried coconut quinoa dish.
Would you look at that? She’s a stunner, that salad. Like sunshine in a bowl. Kale got all gussied up for us today with dazzling clementines and pomegranate, avocado and pepitas, tossed in a honey, lime and jalapeño dressing.
Carrots are stealing the show this week. This recipe features the same flavors as morning glory muffins—shredded carrots, raisins, orange zest, coconut and walnuts—in oatmeal form.
I’m sure you’ve heard, but it’s been a cold week. Cookie and I are getting cabin fever after being stuck inside for so long.
Hey there, Friday! You’re looking good. Today, I thought I’d share a few of the top recipes from the past year.
Now what day is it? I’ve lost track of space and time in the holiday-birthday vortex that sucks me up at the end of every year.
I grew up on stovetop popcorn. Microwave popcorn was a novelty that we found at our friends’ houses, along with cable television, trampolines and Nintendos.
Ta da! This super quick Brussels sprouts side dish concept came to me when my stomach was growling last week.
Peanut butter toast and I go a long way back. When I was a kid, I was so picky that I refused to eat cereal and sandwiches.
