Mincemeat Cookies

Happy Easter tomorrow!  When I was growing up, we would do Easter baskets on Saturday.  We would also usually go hiking in the desert on the Saturday before Easter as well.

I have fond memories of the Saturday before Easter.  My cousins, aunts, and uncles would get together to go have a picnic and take a hike. We would always have a trail mix that my aunt called bird seed.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chips cookies are one of my favorites. They are homey and comforting.

Chocolate Cookies with Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Pieces

These cookies do not look like much, but there were tasty.  The mint pieces aren't very visible from the outside, so they look like plain chocolate cookies.  

I think that spring has finally arrived around here.  The weather has warmed up.  Flowers are blooming.  Last weekend was the cherry blossom festival.  The blossoms were in full bloom which doesn't always coincide with the festival.

Cabbage, Sausage and Potato Soup

Yesterday after work I went to an art museum a few blocks away from my work.  The weird thing is I never knew that it even existed. 

It just proves that you have to live someplace for a long time before you know all the ins and outs of the place.

Chai Spiced Pancakes with Chocolate Chips

Yesterday I went to a restaurant with some friends.  We asked our server if we could split the check.  I know many servers do not like doing that.  He should have refused because he has such a hard time doing it.

He didn't do it correctly two times.  On the third attempt, we just asked to have him split it equally five ways, but that didn't work out either.  I think he was new to the job, and needed some help.

Roasted Carrots with Cardamom Butter

This is a healthy change from what I usually post about on my blog.  It is good to switch it up every once in a while.

I don't know if these are the healthiest carrots because the recipe does call for butter and oil.  All things in moderation, right?

Chai Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another day, another cookie recipe! I feel like Chai spiced things were the rage a couple of years ago.  I think I have eaten Chai spiced cupcakes and Chai spiced blondies.  

I am a big fan of chocolate chips cookies, so why not make them a little fancier with spices? They were tasty cookies, so it worked out.
