    Honolulu Cookie Company

    I discovered these little cookies today in Las Vegas at the Palazzo Shops. I was really attracted to their pineapple shapes and wanted to see what there were all about. I was so excited to see all their gift sets, flavors of cookies, complimentary samples and even a little water fountain for after your tasting.

    Each cookie has a little fruit inserted in the middle or dipped in chocolate by hand! The come in yummy flavors full of island style: coconut, mango, coffee, pineapple, and macadamia.

    “From the very beginning, our premium shortbread cookies have been produced using only the finest and freshest ingredients. The attention to detail is evident in each cookie with the use of natural Hawaiian flavors and hand-placed cookie centers, including Kona coffee, macadamia nuts, lilikoi, mango, and pineapple to add a true taste of the islands and create the perfect cookie. All of our chocolate-dipped cookies are hand-dipped in premium Guittard white chocolate, milk chocolate, or decadent dark chocolate. Every cookie is individually wrapped to preserve its crisp, oven-baked freshness and delivered to our stores daily. Our trademarked pineapple shape evokes the essence of Hawaii, and the international symbol for hospitality.”

    OMG Granola Cookies

    Oat My Goodness craft granola is a family business, created and run by mother-daughter duo Shohreh and Yasaman Vojdani, and led by Shohreh’s background in nutrition and their unsuccessful search for a healthy granola option that didn’t sacrifice amazing taste — so they headed to the kitchen and made some herself.

    Get Baked: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with @ZulkaSugar

    The holidays are a great time to experiment in the kitchen.  I was recently inspired to mix up a recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip cookies using a substitute for both white and brown sugars.  Zulka makes sugar that is minimally processed and comes straight from freshly-harvested sugar cane.  Their brown sugar is non-GMO project verified and blended with fresh molasses.  Together, they perfect an already stellar recipe.  Have at it and watch them disappear within a few minutes.


    Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies 
    1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/2 cup softened, unsalted butter 
    1 cup crunchy peanut butter
    3/4 cup Zulka Morena pure cane sugar
    1/2 cup packed Zulka Brown pure cane sugar
    1 egg
    1 Tbsp milk
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup peanut butter chips
    1 cup chocolate chips

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, and both sugars until well blended and creamy.  Mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and milk.  In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Combine the two mixtures, then mix in both chips.  Roll about 2 Tbsp of dough into a balls and place about 2” apart on an ungreased or paper lined baking sheet.  Press down lightly onto the baking sheet just enough to slightly flatten.  Bake for about 10 minutes and allow to cool completely before enjoying.  This recipe makes about 24-30 cookies.

    Voilà! These cookies are dangerously delicious.

    Read more about Zulka all-natural and unrefined granulated sugar at zulka.com.  Other creations of theirs include powdered pure cane sugar and picante sugar, which adds a touch of chili spice!  This is the good stuff, and it tastes great in coffee too.  SWEET.

    Good Eats: Sweet Addiction @SullivanBleeker


    I was minding my own business, trying to eat clean and exercising everyday, and then it all got ruined… I was at work one day, when one of my co-workers let me know that some lady brought in these amazing cupcakes and cookies for us to try out. I’m like, “Meh, cupcakes. Been there, done that, how amazing could they really be? And I’m not big on cookies anyway.” Then she told me that there was a red velvet cupcake AND a red velvet cookie. A red velvet cookie????? I’ve never heard of or had that before. I felt all my thoughts come to a screeching halt, and I rushed over to go and see this for myself. I don’t even remember the conversation, all I remember is picking up the cookie and asking her if I could have it, she said yes, I smiled, then glanced over at the cupcake, then at her, then at the cupcake, and she said I could have the cupcake as well. So I did.


    This is the BEST cookie I have ever had in my life!

    The rest as they say is history. I was doing so good with not eating sweets and treats, but I CANNOT resist these cookies. I won’t dare say how many of these cookies I’ve had ever since that day, but I will say that I’ve had A LOT! I’ve also tried their salted caramel cupcake, and it’s like… oh man it’s so good. So good.


    Thank you to Sullivan & Bleeker for making the most amazing cookies I have ever had, for obliterating my  clean eating and comprising my waist line lol. I’ll just have to find a way to limit myself to one no no no… two cookies a week. If you’re looking for something sweet and delicious, or for those of you that want to make your cheat day totally worth it, GET YOU A SULLIVAN & BLEEKER RED VELVET COOKIE.

    Stay sweet!
