Strawberry Shortcake Cookies


All of you just might have figured out that I love strawberries. I love to eat or drink anything that is or tastes like strawberries. I don’t know why, but it’s just so juicy, sweet, tangy, and tasty all at the same time. Now that it is strawberry season, I see a bunch of strawberry recipes.

Fenton’s Creamery Part 2

Ah, Fenton’s. I enjoy the atmosphere there for the little time I spent getting my ice cream to-go when I blogged about it here a couple months ago.

Oatmeal Cranberry and Chocolate-Chunk Cookies

I searched on Food Network’s website to find the perfect recipe for blending these two delightful cookies into one amazing cookie. And boy, did I find one alright. Not only does it sound good, but it’s by my favorite Food Network celebrity, Giada!
