Cookies in a Pinch!!

I know that some people don’t have the time or the inclination to make homemade cookies. Life can get very busy and hectic and baking from scratch is not the most time-efficient means for satisfying a sweet tooth. Even for those of us that opt for the pre-made cookie dough, the hassle of putting some cookie dough on a cookie sheet and waiting a few minutes can be too much to ask for at times. Luckily, there are some great store-made cookies that are available in just about every town with a shopping area.


Subway is well known both nationally and internationally as a healthy choice in the fast food industry. However, they are lesser known for the amazing cookies that they offer. Although, I do believe more and more people are catching wind of this. Their chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies are absolutely delicious. If you are ever in need of a quick fix for your sugar craving, look no further!! With over 44,000 restaurants in 112 countries (according to Wikipedia), chances are you are not that far away from a very satisfying treat. You won’t be disappointed!!

Chewy Chips Ahoy

When I was in college, I played sports and I was able to pretty much eat anything I wanted and not have a single concern about calories. Back then, one of my favorite go-to snacks was Chewy Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies. My secret “ingredient” to these tasty treats was to microwave them for a few seconds to warm them up and make them extra soft. It was not uncommon for me to polish off an entire sleeve or more in minutes!!! Today, I much more conscious about my caloric intake, so I won’t indulge in a whole sleeve anymore, but these are always a great snack if you’re pressed for time. Actually, they’re good even if you’re not pressed for time!! And the best part of all??? These babies are available just about everywhere!!

So, there you have it….two delicious brands of cookies that can be found just about anywhere. Enjoy!!

Cookie Pizza??

Sorry it’s been a few days since my last post, but I was down and out with a bad bug that’s been going around. I’m starting to feel better, so I plan on getting a few posts up by the end of the week.

In the meantime, check out this video I found on YouTube about a cookie pizza. That’s right….a cookie pizza.

Now, I love cookies and I love pizza, but I’m too sure about a cookie pizza. Regardless, this does seem like a fun cooking project to try out with the kids, so I figured some of the viewers may like this one. I hope you enjoy it.
