The aftermath of the holidays left us with a bit of a cookie addiction. And while we’ve tried to step up our healthy food game this month, the cookie cravings keep coming back. To strike a balance, CP#1 tried this simple chocolate chip cookie recipe adapted from the Mrs. Fields Cookie Book. They’re everything a person could want in a chocolate chip cookie — soft, chewy, and dense with chocolate. The best part? This straightforward recipe is stripped down to just 7 ingredients. You’ll find there’s very little sugar. Instead, the cookies are naturally sweetened with honey, which make us all feel a bit better about eating two (or three).

Ever since reading this cookbook, our family has worked hard to eat whole foods as often as possible. We’ve also given up weeknight desserts, and sip homemade smoothies or enjoy big bowls of fruit with fresh cream instead. Our new favorite treat is this easy frozen yogurt that you can make in a food processor. And all you need is four simple ingredients: the frozen fruit of your choice, whole milk yogurt, honey and lemon juice. That’s it!

MP was at a play date with the kids, and one of the parents brought a tray of beautiful hot pretzels and mustard. Adults and kids alike were delighted by this unexpected treat. There’s nothing like a salted soft pretzel right out of the oven.

That being said, MP was intimidated to try pretzel making on her own. She has never been a patient baker when it comes to working with bread dough. But after trying and succeeding with this simple artisan boule recipe over the winter, she decided to give pretzel making a go. Ironically, MP found this pretzel recipe on the back of a store brand pretzel bag.

Like all bread making projects, this recipe requires just a few basic ingredients from the pantry and a little patience. Make your dough a day ahead and plan to have your family shape the pretzel dough the next day. After forming your pretzels, plan for 45 minutes rising time on the baking sheet before placing them in the oven.
