White Chocolate Chips Macadamia Nut Cookies

These white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are creamy, nutty, and sweet. Like my chocolate chip cookie recipe, these cookies have an extra egg yolk, which creates a soft and chewy texture.

Weeknight Fried Rice

In the last year, I have tried to limit my grocery shopping to once every other week. By the end of that span I am left primarily with pantry staples and long lasting produce, such as onions, garlic, carrots, and celery.
