Hey, there! 😉
After breakfast, I drove into Boston for a live coffee tasting with Lindsay Bolger, the “nose” of Green Mountain Coffee. I love coffee and Lindsey is the equivalent of a celebrity superstar in the coffee world, so I was psyched to attend.
The tasting also included a Webinar for other bloggers and media folks to hear and see what goes into producing Green Mountain’s Fair Trade coffee. I ended up being in the Webinar with Lindsay, which sort of surprised me, but I did my best to engage in conversation and ask questions (and not be awkward).
I learned a lot from Lindsay this morning and plan to share it in a post next week, so stay tuned! 😀
I didn’t snap photos the whole time I was on camera! 😉
Cookie Friday-worthy Peanut Butter Cookies
After the coffee tasting event, I was on a mission.
The other day, I saw the most amazing-looking Peanut Butter Cookies on Mama Pea’s blog. And, almost immediately, I knew that they needed to be in my life as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I didn’t have all of the ingredients that Mama Pea used in her cookies, so I ended up doing my own thing. (I also ran out of key ingredients while making them!) Even still, Mama Pea’s recipe in the inspiration for these Cookie Friday-worthy Peanut Butter Cookies.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup softened butter
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup peanut butter + chocolate chips (mixed bag)
- Preheat oven to 350*F.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly.
- Use a tablespoon to portion cookies on a greased baking sheet, approximately 1-2 inches apart.
- Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook.
- Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
- Eat and enjoy!
These cookies are truly decadent. They’re also very filling. I ate three and now they’re sitting in my stomach like a rock. Must be all of that peanut butter!
Before embarking on my peanut butter cookie mission, I ate lunch. I had a turkey and Swiss cheese sandwich with baby spinach and tomato on a Sandwich Thin.
On the side, I had the last of the Feta-Walnut Stuff Cucumbers.
It’s a beautiful day in Boston today, so I’m heading out to enjoy it with the pug.
I hope you’re having a wonderful FRIDAY!

Gigi & Lulu say those cookies are the best thing Mama P makes, so they must be good 🙂 Happy Friday, Miss Tina!
Such a simple recipe. Too bad they are in your kitchen and not mine 😉 Happy Friday, Tina!
Those stuffed cukes look too good to be true!
Those cucumbers look AWESOME!
Peanut butter cookies sound amazing. It must have been really interesting to go and learn more about coffee. 🙂
Great, now you’ve got me wanting coffee … yum!!
I love pb cookies! They’re my fave.
I’d probably nix the chemical leaveners though to make them extra chewy.
I love Green Mountain Coffee! So many neat flavors! I’ll be celebrating Cookie Friday today with some chocolate chip cookies tonight – I can’t wait!
Peanut butter cookies are my absolute favorite!!
PB cookies are the best — wait, PB cookie DOUGH is the best 🙂
Enjoy your weekend Tina!
Those sound delicious! I love pb cookies – and your cucumbers look great too!
I could eat a PB cookie right about now!
Those stuffed cucumbers look better each time I see them. Yum! I think those look more appealing to me right now than the cookies. Pregnancy does strange things to a girl. LOL
Enjoy the nice day with Murph!
I just made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies yesterday, and now I want to make some more!! Hope you have a great Friday!!
Those cookies look amazing! Already cut, pasted and printed the recipe and plan to make tonight. Thank you for sharing. =)
amazing looking cookies! i’d let those sit like a rock in my stomach any day! 😉
Those pb cookies look fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!
Those cookies look great! And I have all the ingredients in my cupboard already! Thanks!
I’m jealous you are having beautiful weather. It is cloudy here!
Lunch and the cookies look delicious! I love green mountain coffee too! We use their pods for our coffee machine! Sounds like a fun Friday!
Oh man, those Peanut Butter cookies look Ahhhhhmazing!
Those cookies look really tasty! Sometimes the best recipes come out of ingredients subs and shortages!
envious! ive only been to boston once but i loved ittt. enjoy 🙂
Those peanut butter cookies are the ones that I made two days ago from Mama Pea’s blog! 🙂 They are delicious, the problem is that the batch is so large I feel obliged to eat so many…we used chunky peanut butter for a little texture. Sooo goood!
Feta walnut cucumbers? AMAZING! Your lunch looks incredible. I’m right there with you on the peanut butter cookie crave. I had it a couple days ago and made a delicious batch from Anna’s Cookie Madness blog. Delicious!
Happy Friday 🙂
You’ve done me proud. Thanks for the linkage. Go Ducks!
I’ve only ever made the super simple recipe you get on the peanut butter jar (I believe it’s 1 cup pb, 1 egg and a half cup sugar?) I’m totally going to try that cookie recipe!
Peanut butter cookies are my favorite … but I made some pumpkin spice cookies this morning. Found the recipe over at Peanut Butter Fingers.
Those cucumbers looks so good. I’m going to have to make them 🙂
Yum, those cookies look great!
Ohhh yeah, those do look “worthy”!! Worthy of eating the whole plate in one sitting 😉
i was looking for a good pb cookie recipe…thanks!
Those cookies look awesome! I would be afraid to trust myself with a whole batch of those. I may be tempted to eat them all. 🙂
Those cookies look amazing!! YUM!
those peanut butter cookies look GREAT! your lunch look super yummy too 🙂
Gosh, my go-to peanut butter cookies are just the egg + pb + sugar kind, but I’m starting to feel I should branch out into this type of recipe!
I came to look at those cookies, but I love that cucumber idea – I AM TOTALLY going to try that out!!
Oh I love cookies, especially peanut butter ones!
You’re so inspirational 🙂
yummy platter specially the stuffed cucumbers
The cookies and the cucumbers sound great–both are being added to my list of must-tries.
Peanut butter cookies are always good even if you tweak the ingredients a bit!!
