Bakery-Style Chocolate Mint M&M Cookies

Chocolate Mint M&M Cookies

Lately I’ve been obsessed with making bakery-style cookies.

You know the kind I’m talking about–soft, chewy, delightfully oversized, and packed to the brim with chips, chunks of candy, and other add-ins. So, after some success with my caramel M&M cookie recipe, and having spotted mint-flavored M&Ms at my local CVS, I decided to give a bakery-style mint chocolate cookie recipe a try.

With a delicious chocolate base, filled with chocolate chips, M&Ms, and Andes Mints, and topped with a healthy dose of green sprinkles, these cookies definitely pack a minty punch!

Celebrating International Sushi Day!

Sushi cookies

SushiThe first time I tried sushi was way back in 2004. I was living in New York City for the summer, on break from my costume design graduate program in Pittsburgh. I’d sublet a small studio apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The apartment didn’t have much to offer in the way of kitchen space (it didn’t even have a full-size refrigerator, just a mini fridge!), so I ended up eating a lot of takeout that summer.

One evening on the walk home from my internship in midtown, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things. For some reason I decided to pick up some sushi, too. (Vegetarian brown rice rolls, if I remember correctly!) And while in retrospect supermarket sushi probably wasn’t the best way to start, it certainly did the job: I was hooked.

These days I eat sushi about once a week, and it will always be my choice when it’s my turn to choose the restaurant. So it’s no surprise that, when I started seeing various examples of sushi cookies popping up on Pinterest and around the web, I had to create my own.
