Another Tuesday already? The days seem to be flying by lately! There were so many good posts from this past week that I had a hard time choosing my tops, but as usual, these are not to be missed. I also realized that a lot of my favorite recipes were snacky kinds of foods.. seems to be where my mind is recently. I’m headed to the store to pick up some popcorn and Puffins. One of my favorite snacks this week has been broken up rice cakes with a little coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt. I figure I’ll do the same with some popcorn.. or a lot of popcorn 😉

It’s official. We have a place to live!! Yesterday I found an apartment in Emeryville and we move in just a couple weeks. Hooray to finally settling in! I’m so excited to have a real kitchen that I can stock up and get cooking again 🙂 I’m also excited to have a new area to explore and learn. It’s such a nice little area and I know we’re really going to enjoy living there. It’s about time I get back to some normal blogging though, huh? 😉

Guest Post: Carrots ‘N’ Cake 10 Tasty Cookie Recipes

If you don’t know Tina from Carrots ‘N’ Cake, you should really get on that! Her blog is one of my faves to read daily. She posts so many awesome recipes, workouts, and pictures of her adorable pug, Murphy! You may recognize the name from my many shout outs to her Sweet Breakfast Scramble that I couldn’t enough of! I’m so glad to be featuring Tina in today’s guest post and I hope you love all of these mouth-watering cookie recipes as much as I do!


Hi! My name is Tina, and I blog at Carrots ‘N’ Cake.

Tina Haupert Carrots N Cake

CNC is where I share my love for healthy living by documenting my meals and workout (and photos of my pug). While I try to pack the most nutrients possible into each meal, I have a number of favorites that are not necessarily “healthy,” but are still delicious and fun to eat. If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced diet. With that said, here are ten of my favorite cookie recipes. Hopefully, you will love them as much as I do!
