National Doughnut Day

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Whether you prefer doughnut over donut doesn’t really matter (I used both!), because these fried, baked, glazed, filled, sprinkled, and all around glorious treats are amazing no matter what you call them. In honor of National Doughnut Day–which is tomorrow, btw–I’m sharing some favorites from the archives.

So, let’s get our  sweet, sweet carb on!

Because it was 90ºF yesterday afternoon in Portland, and because warm weather is approaching us all in the northern hemisphere (SOON!), and because I LOVE an ice pop, here are 10 of my favorite frozen treats on a stick. Some with booze, some without, some herbal, some fruity, some creamy, but all super tasty!10 Cool Ice Pops! by Cindy hungrygirlporvida.com

Favorite Cookies Round-Up!

Tags: , , , ,

Guys! It’s the most wonderful time of the year…COOKIE SEASON! Today, I’m sharing some of my faves from the archives because sometimes we need a little inspiration.

And, really, what could be better than cookie-inspiration? Not much, I say.

Oatmeal Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies: My mom, an avid non-baker, made these cookies for a cookie party this year and won BEST COOKIE. So, basically, they are awesome. Chewy Ginger Chocolate Chip Cookies: These combine two of my favorite things–chewy ginger cookies and chocolate chip, then I rolled them in crunchy pearl sugar. Chewy Chocolate Ginger Spice Cookies: These are super similar to the cookies I just mentioned, but there’s cocoa in the actual dough. I am just smitten with the chocolate-ginger combo, obvs.

Malted Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing: These cookies turned Sean from a pumkin-treats-hater to lover. They are basically magic. Iced Eggnog Cookies: These cookies are super soft, cake-like, and full of eggnog flavor. Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies: These cookies are a staple in our house…I make them the most.

Chocolate Pecan Cookies with Sea Salt: These pecan-studded cookies are rich and deeply chocolate-y. So much to love. Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies: Salty, Sweet, Chocolate-y, Peanut Butter Goodness. There isn’t much to say here. Peanut Butter Ninjas: The peanut butter in these cookies is stealthily hidden beneath the chocolate dough.

Alfajores: Buttery cookie + Dulce de Leche…I mean… Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars: Everyones fave, in bar form. Chocolate Mint Creme Sandwiches: These cookies are like little cookie-brownies sandwiched with the best creamy, minty goodness. Also, cute.

Smoked Salt and Almond Shortbread Stars: I love almonds, smoked salt, and butter…these cookies have it all. Citrus Gingerbread Trees: A little, citrus twist on classic gingerbread. Get your royal icing on! Pistachio + Apricot Jam Thumbprints: A classic, but with pistachios and apricot. Graham Crackers: So simple, yet so satisfying.
