Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 108
Happy Saturday, everyone!
This weekend isn’t all about cookies. The family and I are taking a trip to Sonoma State University for my daughter, and I couldn’t be more excited for her.
During college tours, I have made room to create a post about my favorite cookie recipes for spring.
Plus, the weekends are always available for baking. It’s a rule for my household.
So, take today (and tomorrow) to try out my recipes. You never know. One of these cookies could become your new favorite 🙂
Inspiration is here, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to sweet recipes with sugar 😉
Enjoy the weekend, my friends!
Personal Note from Janine
When I was growing up, my mom always had a fresh batch of homemade cookies in her fancy glass cookie jar. It’s wild that she could keep cookies around because we were a family of four ravenous boys, and I was the only girl.
But here’s the kicker – my mom was crazy strict about how many sweets we could have. She had supersonic ears and could hear the slightest rustle from her cookie jar.
And let me tell you, that jar was no joke. When you tried to open it, it had frosted glass that made more noise than a marching band!
Isn’t it funny that those memories stick with you? And now, I bake cookies for my fam, and they can chow down as much as they want.
It’s the little things, you know?

I want to shout it from every rooftop that I finally have the Best Crunchy Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. You might say, that I’ve been a bit obsessed for the last couple of days trying to perfect my mom’s chocolate chip recipe.

I included a creamy French vanilla filling between two cookies in this recipe to make it extra memorable.
A sugar cookie in a mug is a perfect single-serving dessert of a sugar cookie made in a cup and cooked in the microwave.

Do you love sugar cookies? This is a copycat version of the Crumbl Classic Sugar Cookie recipe.
This yummy cookie doesn’t contain vanilla extract but rather almond extract. It has a fresh and surprising taste, and the pink frosting also has a hint of almond.
This recipe is the best Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie. In addition, this is the best recipe since it only has four ingredients.
This cookie contains no wheat flour at all, which is a perfect gluten-free dessert. Instead, it’s a chewy and soft chocolate chip cookie that is simple to make with its whopping four ingredients.
This is seriously the Best Big Thick Oatmeal Cookie Recipe. If you love oatmeal and granola bars, then you’re in luck. The photos don’t show how thick and chunky these cookies are in person.
