Green Tea Brownies | Fortune Goodies

Greetings from Barcelona! Brian and I are having the best time right now, but more on that after we return.

For now, I want to continue my Asian-food streak and leave you with yet another matcha green tea recipe. This time: vibrant green brownies loaded with white chocolate chips and almonds.

Banana Cream Cookies

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I hope you have the day off from work. I did until I decided to pick up the weekend-duty shift. I’m regretting that now just a little because I didn’t tackle everything on my to-do list, but I could definitely use the comp day. And if there’s anything I’ve learned in my two-and-a-half years of business school it’s that “required” reading is optional at best, at least with my GPA. 

Less optional are these banana cream cookies. I’m telling you, if you’re a fan of bananas, cookies or deliciousness, you need to make these and try them for yourself, no occasion needed. Although I’ll admit I made my batch with one in mind. You see, Brian was away all weekend with his family in the Bahamas, and he comes back tonight. Banana cream happens to be one of his favorite flavors, so I made these as a sort-of welcome home gesture. But before you start thinking that I’m some kind of good girlfriend, I’ll have you know that as soon as he tells me how much he loves them, I plan on telling him that the next time he leaves me behind I won’t be saving him any.

So yeah, I’m probably not in the running for any best girlfriend awards. But these cookies. Oh these cookies. They deserve some recognition.

Red white & green cookies | fortune goodies

All you panicking, last-minute Christmas-cookie bakers out there, you can stop fretting. I’ve got a great red, white & green cookie recipe for you today. Consider the holiday-appropriate color palette a gift from me to you. 

Also known as white chocolate, cranberry and pistachio cookies, these are a welcome departure from all the gingerbread men you’ve likely grown sick of. And if you’re tired of spending time in the kitchen too, these cookies have got you covered on that front. They’re as easy to make as they are delicious to eat.

Matcha Green Tea Sugar Cookies

It’s with great pleasure that I bring you today’s cookie post on a Wednesday. If you follow my blog, and I sure hope you do, you’ll know that I don’t typically post recipes on Wednesdays. But today isn’t just any old Wednesday. Today marks The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013 unveiling day. Today is the day I share my recipe for Matcha Green Tea Cookies with a White Chocolate and Sesame Seed Drizzle. Long name for a small cookie, I know. Is it a coincidence that Wednesday also happens to have the longest name of any day of the week? Yeah, it is actually, but who cares? We’re talking about green cookies. Let’s get started.
