I received four boxes of cookies from Enjoy Life
Just what I needed. Four boxes of cookies.
But I’m not complaining, of course!
I wonder how I’ll ever eat that many cookies? No, I don’t wonder, actually.
I’ve already started sampling them and am happy to report that even though Enjoy Life is known for making foods free from many common allergens, they don’t taste like they’re “free from” or “healthy”.
You can read about my thought on “healthy desserts” or “healthifying” desserts here. <– That was quite a popular post with lots of opinions on the matter.
If you don’t have any Enjoy Life Cookies on hand, I have some easy make-at-home suggestions and baking and turning the oven on is optional:
All you need is a food processor, Magic Bullet, or Vita for all my cookie balls and bites recipes.
And for the vanilla honey graham cookies, well you could try No Bake Nutella & Peanut Butter Graham Bars with Chocolate Frosting if you really want to get your graham on.
I also can suggest Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan, GF) if the cookie monster strikes.
From my last post about my new camera bag, thanks for sharing what your favorite bags are. I love purse and bag talk, what can I say.
And thanks for the compliments on my new bag setup. I’m really happy with the way it all came together!
1. Favorite kind of cookie? (or narrow it down to a couple because just picking one is way too hard!)
I love cookies that are underbaked, soft, and chewy.
If it’s dry, I won’t even bother. Ick!
The only exception to my hard and crunchy cookies rule is that I like are crunchy gingersnaps. But I actually prefer my raw vegan gingerbread cookie dough balls because they are soft and chewy. I always go back to soft and chewy cookies. I hate biscotti for those very reasons: hard and dry. Just not a fan, personally.
And even though I do love chocolate, an oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, or non-chocolatey cookie can be divine. It all comes down to the cooking/baking process, for me. And of course warm and right from the oven always makes my heart go pitter-patter.
I also don’t want to eat things that taste like “health food” when I’m eating cookies! I don’t want the cookie to taste healthy! The sweeter the better, for me. Embrace some dessert eating. <— Everything in moderation.
2. How’s your weekend going so far?
Mine has been flying by! I’ve been in the kitchen and created something wonderful. Recipe to follow, soon.
And I ran some errands in this gorgeous weather!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
