I did it. I figured out a way to cook a cookie in 30 seconds.

I got the idea after making all these one minute mug cakes. I figured if you can cook a cake in the microwave, why not a cookie? You might not be able to create a cookie that is crunchy on the outside, but you should be able to make a cakey cookie.

December is usually filled with giveaways on blogs to correspond with the holidays. But I think the new year deserves some celebration as well so I reserved one of my giveaways until January to start off the new year!

Did you know that Coco’s Bakery Restaurant brews their own line of premium organic coffee? I confess, I had no idea. Recently Coco’s sent me this coffee set. It arrived in a really cool wood box. Inside is a coffee travel mug, a bag of Coco’s premium organic coffee, some bars of soap, and a jar of honey. It’s a pretty nice set and I’ve already begun using the travel mug cup for work.

Persimmon Bread


I love quick breads. They are easy to put together and taste so good. It’s too hard for me to pick a favorite quick bread because I like them all.

With all the persimmons I was pureeing last week, I had to make a persimmon quick bread. I made this one here previously, which I really liked. But I wanted to try a few more recipes.
