Yummy things!

I tried the brownie batter donut from Dunkin Donuts, and let me tell you- it was worth it. It was SO good. I have to resist getting one every time I’m in there getting my iced coffee. (Yes, I drink iced coffee year round). Try it before it goes away!

Shake Shack came to Cambridge and I COULD NOT be more excited. I got a cheeseburger and cheese fries. HEAVEN.

Along the lines of more “homemade” and “healthy” things, I made an amazing grilled cheese sandwich with brie and sauteed kale. It was amazing, and the kale added some veggies to my otherwise veggie-less meal.

Lastly, my new favorite breakfast. Avocado toast with a fried egg. I just mash up around a quarter avocado, spread it on toast, and top it with a super runny egg- just the way I like it. It’s delicious and a great way to start my morning!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other night I was craving a burger and fries, but I didn’t have any of the makings in my house. Here’s my burger and fries redux: a veggie burger with avocado and salsa and oven-baked sweet potato fries. It was a lot healthier, much easier to make, AND I didn’t have to leave my house in the cold. These are the MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers and they’re some of my favorite frozen veggie burgers. I’m definitely not a vegetarian, but I eat a few meatless dinners a week. Served with Harpoon UFO White, one my favorite beers, in my fancy beer glass that I picked up at the Harpoon Brewery!


On to the good stuff: My absolute favorite homemade cookies. I can’t take credit for the recipe. My mom has been making these cookies as long as I can remember, but the recipe is the Quaker Oats Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with one tweak: replace the raisins with chocolate chips. They are the most amazing, chewy, cinnamon-y, chocolatey cookie out there. And they are fan favorites according to everyone I have ever baked them for!


If you buy a gigantic container of Quaker Oats, the recipe is on the lid, but you can also find it online!


Ready to go into the oven…


Deliciousness! Don’t worry, the recipe makes way more than what you see on the plate.

Try making these cookies- I promise you’ll enjoy!
