A Home For Broken Cookies

July 22, 2011

As the bakery owner, it’s my duty to find a home for the poor souls! Sometimes they go on our sample bread board, but other times my mouth is the coziest place in town!

I just try not to have more than a bite a day Winking smile

Because the comfort must be shared with Blondies and Bread Pudding Bars!

And Honeypillars!

I hail from the land of Body Pump, which gave my muscles a good ride.

Next up the bank.

Finally, to the bakery for lunch

When we made last night’s dinner salads, I pulled some out for lunch today. Morphing is the best! Topped with leftover pinto beans, bleu cheese and Great Harvest Hummus

For dessert – that cookie bite!

There is Popeye bread to bag – gotta run!

You can always send those cookie bites my way :) I would not be able to resist and would definitely have more than one a day!!!


2 Cait @ Cait hates Cake July 22, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Those Honeypillars are so cute! I’m pretty sure I could eat my body weight in blondies. Boy are those good.


3 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 22, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I love ‘hailing’ from the land of BodyPUMP. Such a great feeling!

I love small nibbles, makes the tastebuds happy, and does not do much to the waistline. hah 😉

Your salad looks YUMM!


4 birdie to be July 22, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Your salad looks delish!


5 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 22, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Feel free to send any spares to me too! I don’t discriminate when it comes to cookies! :)


6 katie @KatieDid July 22, 2011 at 12:49 pm

The caterpillar is too cute. Matt must have fun being creative with all the kinds of bread. And I’m sure there are plenty of mouths those broken cookies could find homes in, mine being one of them 😉


7 Johanna B July 22, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Gosh but I wish I could eat gluten when I look at your photos. Everything looks so good and I dearly love doughy things.


8 Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food July 22, 2011 at 12:53 pm

mmm those bread pudding bars look AMAZING! Why don’t I live closer to C ville?!?! 😉


9 Cait's Plate July 22, 2011 at 12:53 pm

I agree – my favorite thing ever is when we make a dinner that can easily be made into a lunch. I had a taco salad yesterday after a Mexican dinner the other night and it was perfect!

If that cookie wants to try some other places, I’d argue my mouth is a pretty cozy place too 😉


10 Diana July 22, 2011 at 12:55 pm

yummm I would be so fat and happy if I worked there! Bread Pudding bars?!? Yes PLEASE!

Is that honeypillar a face? What is it like? haha, I’m so curious about your GH goodies 😀


12 Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life July 22, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I can’t even imagine how much I would snack if I owned a bakery…. I have zero willpower!


13 Baking N Books July 22, 2011 at 1:23 pm

lol – I snack – and I’m not in a bakery! 😉

GH has hummus?!!


14 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles July 22, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Sometimes I wish I were you…. just sometimes. :) HA! I would totally love the ability to take a bit of something different. Ya know? Like a crumb from this one day a crumb from that the next….


15 cailen July 22, 2011 at 1:16 pm

mmm…those bakery treats look delicious!!! and that salad looks super yummy too. anything with bleu cheese is good with me : )

16 lynn @ the actor's diet July 22, 2011 at 1:22 pm

my house is filled with baked goods – overflowing! and now my husband has decided not to eat sugar. i should hold a bake sale!


17 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 22, 2011 at 1:38 pm

A honeypillar!? How do you guys think of these things? So cute :)


18 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes July 22, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Love dinner leftovers fo lunch! perfect and easy to throw together :)


19 Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites July 22, 2011 at 2:43 pm

How is that blue cheese and hummus combo??? I adore both but have yet to put them together!! I’m inspired… maybe on a sandwich?


20 Khushboo July 22, 2011 at 2:51 pm

Stopping after one bite if those delights…Kath, you a stronger woman that I :)


21 joyce July 22, 2011 at 3:21 pm

Kath, those cookies look amazing.
I have been reading your blog for a year now, and I started my own!
Hope you visit :)
You’ve been such a blessing!


22 KathEats July 22, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Thanks!! Congrats on the new one


23 Lauren B. July 22, 2011 at 3:29 pm

That is so cool that you own a bakery! How long have you had it?

I always break apart my cookies to eat them anyway, so I would not have a problem accepting broken cookies for a reduced price! :) One time, the people at Subway gave me a whole bag full of the broken pieces, since they couldn’t sell them, and I was in heaven! :)


24 KathEats July 22, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Just six weeks!! Go back to June 3 to see the opening :)


25 rumfunandsun July 22, 2011 at 3:38 pm

If there are gluten free baked goods that ever need a good home I am willing to take some in! :-)


26 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance July 22, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Pinto beans in a salad are my favorite 😀 Next to kidney beans.. of course


27 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 22, 2011 at 3:55 pm

I didn’t know GH sold hummus! Looks tasty :)


28 Margo @ Peanut Butter Trees July 22, 2011 at 4:04 pm

mm that salad looks great! love those honeypillars too.


29 Tessa @ Amazing Asset July 22, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Hehe that is awfully nice of you to take those broken cookies 😉


30 Erika @ The Teenage Taste July 22, 2011 at 4:45 pm

And I thought all your bread photos were amazing. Seriously! I think they’ve been outdone by the blondies and bread pudding. GET IN MY BELLY! 😉


31 Molly @ RDexposed July 22, 2011 at 5:14 pm

I’m so glad blondies give us blondes a better name/reputation!


32 Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 22, 2011 at 5:15 pm

I would have the hardest time not eating all the baked goods all day!


33 Lindsay July 22, 2011 at 5:36 pm

If I worked where you worked, I would BE a baked good:)


34 Jackie @ That Deep Breath July 22, 2011 at 6:14 pm

It’s a hard job to be the home for broken cookies…but someone’s gotta do it!


35 Christine @ BookishlyB July 22, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Kath, you have no idea how much I admire your self-control! To be surrounded by all that all day! I’d seriously gain a million lbs. Good job :)


36 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) July 22, 2011 at 7:21 pm

That Honeypillar is too cute!


37 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 22, 2011 at 8:09 pm

I love just taking bites and nibbles of baked goods when they’re around. One bite is often enough to satisfy me – but sometimes I need to eat the whole thing!


38 Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn July 22, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Those honeypillairs are so darn cute. I love those tupperwares!! They make me feel like my packed lunches are a bit more classy 😉


39 jenna k July 22, 2011 at 8:26 pm

those blondies look SO good! i was almost jealous, but then i remembered i made chocolate chip cookie bars last night :)


40 Katherine July 22, 2011 at 8:58 pm

I always see people put hummus on salads, but I am too scared to try it. Seems so weird.


41 Hannah July 22, 2011 at 11:45 pm

Bread.Pudding. Bars. One day…


42 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs July 23, 2011 at 8:02 am

My mouth is ALSO a cozy home for sweets, gimme! :)


43 Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 23, 2011 at 8:23 am

All of this looks so good! :)
