The title of these cookies is a mouthful – White Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut Cookies! But I couldn’t leave an ingredient out of the name – they are all equally important and make up one amazing cookie!

I may not be from the south, but I love a good biscuit! Every time I see a biscuit on a menu, I just have to order it. There is something about biscuits that are so comforting and delicious.

There are so many recipes and methods for making biscuits. It is amazing that a food that seems so simple could actually be so complex. I have made many varieties of biscuits, but I think that this recipe for cream cheese biscuits might be my new favorite. They are so amazingly light and fluffy, and have a delicious rich flavor from the combo of the butter and cream cheese.

Brioche Bread

Brioche Bread | chezcateylou.com

Ok everyone – what is going on with the weather this winter?! I know it is all people can talk about lately, but seriously – will it ever stop snowing?

I walk to work every morning (takes about 25 minutes in case you are curious) and I think I’ve said about 10 times this winter, “Ok that was by far my worst walk yet.” It just keeps getting worse though!  But this morning took the cake (and not the good kind of cake) – freezing rain the entire walk – which was falling on top of snow piles. The result: icy sidewalks and HUGE puddles at each intersection. Fun. But I made it without falling, phew!

And now I can talk about brioche bread, which is definitely cheering me up immediately. There is a stick of butter in each loaf, what’s not to love?!…
