Roasted Veggies and Cookies

I feel like this title pretty much sums up my life-I love veggies and I love cookies and in order to be a fully functioning me I need both.

We just can’t seem to get enough of roasted veggies. Spring has sprung, but cooler evening temps has me still wanting warm foods so instead of having a salad or steaming my vegetables we’ve been roasting them into golden brown (slightly charred…okay a lot charred) perfection!

Burgers and fries? Nahhhh roasted carrots, broccoli, and brussels will do just fine ๐Ÿ™‚


Nothing goes better with salmon then some perfectly roasted vegetables! This is the pretty plate hubs made me so I could take a pic! He is the sweetest โค๏ธ


This is the plate I ate!


Is morning too early to have roasted brussels? I didn’t think so either ๐Ÿ˜‰


Leaving the nutriently dense part of this post and entering cookie land now ๐Ÿ™‚ Hubs heard about how good these Dunkers from Trader Joe’s were. I spotted them while getting groceries the other day and impulsively added them to the cart.


I’m not a crispy cookie person, but there’s something oddly enjoyable about these for me. I think I may prefer the mini chocolate chip Nantucket cookies from Pepperidge Farm over these, but I can’t say I regret buying these. I will be attempting to finish the package…not all at once!

Now for a cookie type I do enjoy-chewy, melty, and filled with chocolate chips.

We made this recipe and used these incredible Guittard baking wafers. These are some expensive chocolate chips, but we tried a few while baking and LORDYY were they the best chocolate “chips” I’ve ever had.


They are not chocolate chip shaped instead they are rounder and flatter. They do great at layering that chocolatey goodness into your cookie.

These cookies turned out incredible! We still have cookie dough in the fridge and it’s killing me to not pick up a spoon and just dig in to it.


Are you guys cookie dough people or cookie people? I LOVE a good cookie and have always enjoyed cookie dough, but after this I can see why people could enjoy the dough more than the cookie. Let’s talk in the comments about your current food loves/obsessions!

    Girl amen to that!!! Veggies + Cookies are truly the definition of LIFE & balance haha.

    While I am a big fry lover, those roasted veggies look amazing!!

    And wow- that salmon looks restaurant-worthy!!

    Iโ€™ve really got to venture into the sweets section of TJโ€™s more often! Those dunkers look so yummy.

    Hmmm I wonder if there is a Guittard store I can visit in SF since it looks like it was founded hereโ€ฆ gonna go check this out!

    Those cookies look like perfection. So I am both cookie dough/cookie. We so severely undercook our cookies that they are basically still dough lol.

    I like cookie dough but I can only ever have a few bites. I can eat a dozen cookies (or more!) lol so I’d say I’m a cookie gal!!
