Paleo Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I took some time off from Crossfit. #1 because I was pregnant and #2 because I found out I had bulging discs on my spine. Not sure what from, but assume after all these years of random training: karate, cheerleading, softball, triathlons, Half Ironman, riding my bike in AIDS Lifecycle from San Francisco to L.A. in one week (545 miles), Crossfit, Bikram, crashing a few times on my dirt bike, and so on.....Read More


Biscosho has a meaning of “A handsome Latin person.” I tried these special cookies called Biscochos for the first time at our friend’s house in Anza. They had a package that they purchased from an Argentine market. 9 De oro Azucardos Bicochos is what the package read. I went home a couple days later and researched authentic recipes for these cookies because I had to make them...

You get 3 options and it is enough to share with 4 people or more...

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

We toss shredded carrot with a little brown sugar and let the mixture stand for ten minutes. This tenderizes the shreds-important here because, unlike with an actual carrot cake that bakes for a while, these cook for only 10-12 minutes, not much time for the carrots to cook to softness. Just like Whoopie Pies! Basically a carrot cake in mini form. Perfect for Easter...
