Happy Monday! Did you have a lovely Valentine’s Day? My hubby and I had the most amazing weekend. Just like the weatherman predicted Friday night, with a high of 2 on Saturday, V-Day called for lots of snuggles. Something we had no problem getting on board with, ha. We were all about comfort food and enjoying some amazing chocolates. Adam got me the sweetest assortment of truffles from a local chocolaterie and I couldn’t have been happier. My favorite man and decadent chocolate?! Best day ever!

As I sat wishing that the weekend didn’t have come to an end, I realized that some of you might not have to go back to work just yet. We are back in the office today, but if I had another day off, I know exactly what I’d do. Bake a batch of the most scrumptious cookies.

So I took the liberty and pre-made you my current cookie obsession! [Read more…]

It’s gonna be a good Friday. Get ready to get your cookie on! I have so many things to say – I don’t even know where to begin. For the first time ever, I might even be speechless because I’m so overwhelmed with what’s going on here. My cookie dreams are coming true right in front of my face – quite literally.

But I will try my best to summarize what’s happening here. First, let me take another bite…

Alright, I’m ready to give you the lowdown on my current situation.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to start training for a half marathon. Which basically means I had to mentally prepare myself to actually start running (which took about 3 weeks) and finally gave it a go at the beginning of the week. Since nutrition is supposed to be somewhat important when working out one’s body, I decided to eat as clean as possible at least 6 days of the week, leaving one day to thoroughly enjoy the treats I make on da blog. Well, a couple days in and I started to dream about some crazy concoctions. Which is exactly where these cookies come into play. [Read more…]

 Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope every single one of you had a wonderful holiday season and made it safely into 2015. With the beginning of a new year come all sorts of new goals and resolutions. To be quite honest, I didn’t make a single resolution this year. I am always thinking about how to move forward and things I hope to accomplish in the future. That being said, it’s been a couple of months since I started planning some new and exciting things for Deliciously Yum and I can’t wait to see how all of them unfold. So stay tuned.

As for these cookies, I couldn’t wait to give them a go. And what better time to try out new recipes and something completely different than right now.

I am always thinking about how to improve or put a new spin on some of my favorite recipes. Cookies are always on my mind. The fact that these cookies turned out to be quite healthy when it comes to sweet treats was an absolute bonus! [Read more…]

Gingerbread Men

With less than a week to go, it’s Gingerbread Men time. This tried and true recipe should definitely join your recipe box.

It’s official, guys. We’re less than 1 week away from Christmas Day. Ahhhh! The buildup is getting bigger and better. As I have mentioned before, I almost love the days leading up to Christmas, especially Christmas Eve, more than the actual day. I wish I could bottle up the anticipation and excitement I feel right now for the rest of the year (or the new year, which is right around the corner). My husband recently said that I will probably never grow out of my childlike fascination and enthusiasm, ha. I hope he is right!

Last night he took me to an amazing Christmas Lights setup at a nearby farm. Over 100,000 lights all synchronized to Christmas music almost set me over the edge. They even had a giant snowman display singing “The 12 Days of Christmas”, which might be the cutest thing I’ve seen in a very long time. I could have driven through that Christmas Wonderland over and over again. Once we returned home, I was thrilled that a freshly brewed cup of tea and these Gingerbread Men were awaiting us.

I might die of cuteness overdose! [Read more…]

Holiday Mint Cookies

This may be Santa’s favorite cookie. If he is anything like us, he will not be able to keep his fingers off the cookie plate.

Hello, fellow cookie lovers! How was your weekend? Adam and I had the best time visiting lots of friends and enjoying the Christmas season with those who matter most to us. When we made the initial plans to get on the road and travel to Iowa, I remember being worried about the weather. I am always hesitant to go anywhere when there is lots of snow in the forecast and temperatures are dropping extremely low. But have you noticed the absence of weather talk here on the blog lately? Things are super warm (high 40s) and there’s not a single flake of snow on the ground as of right now.

Things are feeling a little weird, but the hubby and I are loving it. We’re not being trapped inside by Mr. Frost, have no snow to shovel, and most importantly aren’t freezing cold. Running errands and having full feeling in all of my limbs is a beautiful thing. And even though we aren’t covered in anything white, we are definitely feeling Christmas in the air.

Which may or may not be largely due to these Holiday Mint Cookies. Who needs snow when you have cookies to get you in the mood? I take cookies over winter anytime ;). [Read more…]
