The Weekender: A Weekly Review & Taste of What’s to Come

My first year of college has concluded. Why tell you this? Because it’s not just good news for me; it’s good news for all you Smart Cookiers as well. Summer vacation means I’ll have more time for this site. And so, I’ve decided to start bringing you The Weekender.

Once a week, on the weekend, I’ll round up all the past week’s posts, recipes, videos, and what-not for any of you who may have missed a bite. Then, I’ll tease you with a taste of the deliciousness the next week will bring. And maybe we’ll talk about some random food-related stuff too because, hey, why the heck not?


First, let’s round up this week’s eats:

  1. Cheesy Garlic Bread Dunkers
    Strips of buttery garlic bread covered in two kinds of cheese that are just made for dunking in marinara. Oh, and did I mention you only need 5 ingredients?

  2. Mini Zucchini Frittatas
    Tender frittatas topped with fresh zucchini and shredded parmesan cheese. These babies are miniaturized, which makes eating them twice as fun!
  3. Peanut Butter S’mores Bar
    Everything you love about s’mores in the form of an ooey-gooey bar. Plus, peanut butter makes an appearance. What more could you want?
  4. Double Cheese Zucchini Pizzas
    This pizza is less than 200 calories! It’s thin, crispy, and super cheesy, guaranteed the best light pizza you’ve ever had.
  5. Raspberry Golden Fudge
    A fresh take on traditional cookies and cream: melt-in-your-mouth raspberry fudge studded with Golden Oreos. Hello, Spring!

And don’t you dare miss Smart Cookie’s latest video where we’ll whip up those Cheesy Garlic Bread Dunkers. Plus, everyone’s favorite pup joins us for a taste test. (Click here to watch!)


So, now that you’re caught up, let’s talk current events. If you like Smart Cookie on Facebook, then you may have seen some of my latest food-related humor photos like this one:

or this:

Don’t worry; I’ll be adding a gallery to the website soon. But until then, make sure you like Smart Cookie on Facebook so you don’t miss a single chuckle! I also post all of my photos on Pinterest, so be sure to follow me! (You can find links to both of these accounts in the sidebar to your right.)

Oh, and one more thing you may have missed, I got my herr did:


Lastly, allow me to tease you with a taste of what’s to come this week. On Monday, I’ll  be posting a brand spanking new video talking about the do’s and don’ts of cooking. You don’t want to miss it. Now, I’m going to share a dirty little secret with you guys: If you subscribe to my Youtube Channel, you’ll get to see my latest videos a day before everyone else! Talk about special privileges!

Then, in the recipe department, you’ll be seeing a crazy-awesome twist on pizza, inspired by my trip to New Jersey last month. Oh, and this guy will be coming your way as well:

See you on Monday, my little cookies!
