Baking, Cookies, Cakes & Pies, Here and There

Here & There: Traveling

A few weeks ago I was at the beach with Sweet Z’s family. Do you remember when Alicia made that gorgeous and delicious summer crostada and shared it with you? I thought I would reach back and share a few scenes with you…This trip will be the last time I take a plane for awhile…

“Behind the Beautiful Forevers” by Katherine Boo. I started reading this after just seeing The Lunchbox.  I recommend you both the book and the film out!

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Then we came home…and work on the house began. It has been a busy week…and I just had to eat some raw cookie dough! Before you freak out over eggs…relax. This is eggless and I will totally share this recipe with you!

In making better choices and other news – I am off to make up a batch of sangria – pregnancy friendly sangria!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough without eggs


  • I adapted this recipe from Carrie This Home
  • 1/4 C. dark brown sugar
  • 2 T. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 T. milk (I used almond milk)
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 C. flour (next time I am using white whole wheat)
  • pinch of salt
  • handful of chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)
  • Additional add ins could be: oats, nuts, pumpkin seeds, dried cherries...endless possibilities!


  1. In a small bowl beat together the brown sugar and butter until fluffy.
  2. Stir in the milk, vanilla extract, pinch of salt and flour and slowly stir together until well combined.
  3. Add in a handful of chocolate chips.
  4. You may wish to stick this in the freezer (for 15 minutes) or fridge (for 30 minutes) to firm up a bit or just spoon it into your mouth.
