HEARTTHROB COOKIES

HEARTTHROB COOKIES

Sometimes you just need a good cookie. Whether after heartbreak, joy, stress, or just a sweet-tooth craving, a chocolate chip cookie is just the thing to satisfy. In one of my late night baking sessions, this recipe to concoct my "heartthrob" cookies popped into my head. From the start of smelling the fragrant toasted pecans, I slightly gave myself a little brush on the shoulder for baking up some great cookies (although my little brush usually follows my personal rendition of the harlem shake).

CRYSTALLIZED GINGER AND HONEY SUGAR COOKIES

CRYSTALLIZED GINGER AND HONEY SUGAR COOKIES

As the last two weeks of my internship are approaching, a bitter-sweet feeling comes about. I am happy to be able to enjoy an actual summer for what is left of it, but I am sad to leave a great environment as well as the wonderful people I have met. As this bitter-sweet feeling is in the air, I thought a bitter-sweet, or more so a ginger-sweet cookies would be ever so appropriate. Although the ingredients sounds a bit reminiscent of what you would ingest while feeling under the weather, these cookies are on the opposing sickly spectrum and will make your tummy and taste buds feel ever so happy.

HAZELNUT BANANA BREAD WITH CHOCOLATE FROSTING

HAZELNUT BANANA BREAD WITH CHOCOLATE FROSTING

I have to admit that I am slightly embarrassed that until now I have yet to post a banana themed recipe to my blog AKA Hannah's BANANAS. For a while I could only spell bananas by referencing Gwen Stefanie's catchy song featuring her Harajuku girls, but all can be relieved that at college age I no longer require a song to spell words. At least I have finally come around to making a banana recipe in honor of my blog name, the nickname that I so often am called by, and lastly by request of my manager who has been begging me to make a banana bread for the office.

PEANUT BUTTER FLUFF COOKIES SANDWICHES

Ah, July 4th- America's Birthday. The most obvious of foods come to mind such as a variety of pies and barbecued food. But, if you ponder a bit longer, peanuts are a classic as well. Yes, there are references in Shakespearian times to tell the "peanut gallery" to be quiet or see their reaction to the newest play. Although at America's favorite pastime (duh, baseball) eating some dry roasted peanuts can be on the same scale as grabbing a hotdog.

ISLAND INSPIRED OATMEAL COOKIES

ISLAND INSPIRED OATMEAL COOKIES

As the weather becomes warmer and the sun shines brighter, my want to sit on the beach all day rather than at a computer screen significantly increases. Being a jersey girl, the jersey shore is an easy option, but with that comes embracing the typical "meat-heads," girls with big hair and poofs (not that I don't have big curly and frizzy hair as well), and pre-tanned orange people spread out amongst their towels soaking up the sun and blasting the radio's top hits. But, some of the most stunning beaches I have been to were on my family vacations to the various islands of Hawaii.
