Happy Hour: Because Cookies Are Amazing

Oct 8, 2021

I can’t remember the last time I made cookies, but this weekend, we have a law school reunion and I’m bringing cookies for the potluck.  Because cookies are amazing, and anyone who tells you they don’t make a good potluck addition is wrong.

These are the chocolate chip, toffee, and sea salt cookies.  They are delicious.  Looking for a non-chocolate chip cookie?  These pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting are also fantastic.

Have a favorite cookie recipe?  Leave it in the comments.

It’s officially cold in Spokane.  And when I head to Montana at the end of the month, I’m sure it will be colder.  Maybe I need to find a career path that takes me to Hawai’i?  But since it’s chilly, it’s officially sweater season.  And for a patio potluck, it’s sweater and puffer vest season.

Need sweaters?  Goodthreads is the place to go, especially if you need cotton sweaters.  This shaker stitch turtleneck sweater is a nice piece.  This boucle shaker cardigan is long and cozy for WFH.  And this deep v-neck sweater is a tunic length, so it’s great with leggings.

Plus-size?  Try this boyfriend cardigan from Woman Within and this turtleneck sweater from them as well.

    I am wearing the Goodthreads shaker stitch crewneck right now in my freezing office. It’s so good and comfy and still smart for my office.

    Hawaii resident here! It’s not cold but I do jealously read about the cute fall clothes, nail polish colors and the general changing of the seasons. It’s bright colors and tropical all day everyday ☀️ ????

    The chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House chocolate chip bag is the best. Also, these are so good – https://www.joyofbaking.com/ChocolateCrinkles.html.

    The molasses part throws people off, but it all works! Plus I tend to drop the pans, not bang them – it’s a bit fun if you need to make some noise.
