Sour Cherry and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

It’s cookie season! Yay, to that—so, starting now until Christmas I will be sharing a cookie a week. To kick things off, I made you guys some oatmeal cookies pumped full of dried sour cherries and chopped chocolate. In between that you’ll find, toasted almonds, pecans, some coconut – and a lot of vanilla extract. It’s almost a dump cookie, by that I mean I threw in what I had to clean-up.

If you bake as much as I do, you always have all these bags with just a few ounces of this or that. Admittedly, sometimes. . . I will clean out my pantry and throw away these almost-emptied bags. I know it’s awful and wasteful, but for my peace of mind, I just have to. Have to. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this.

Mixed Berry Lattice Top Pie

Pies are not my favorite thing to make. I always struggle with the crust. And this time around, I decided I was going to lattice the top without a stencil like I did here.

As you can see from the picture above, my edging could use some more practice.

Ultimate Hot Wings

Sumer may almost be over, but guess what? Football season is starting September 4th. Admittedly I’m not much of a football watcher, but I do love to participate in all the gatherings and tailgating.

With that, I’m going to pump up the season’s kickoff with these hot wings dipped in my killer apricot-jalapeno mustard sauce. The key to hot wings are a crispy skin and a great sauce.
