5 Cookies You Need In Your Life This Fall

You'll want to make time for these, even if you're not a baker.


If you're like me, you always have to have dessert. For some reason I can't explain, I always crave cookies more in the cooler months, and we all have certain kinds of flavors we associate with specific times of the year. I'm not a huge baker, but cookies are pretty fun and simple, and we all need some fall treats to snack on when we bundle up with a warm mug of tea and a movie. As we enter September and the start of fall is among us, here are 5 unique cookies that will taste better homemade.

1. Gingersnaps

Let's start simple. We can all go out and buy these at the store, but they're much tastier and chewier when you bake them yourself. Plus, you can add your own little twists to them (ahem, adding cinnamon and pumpkin spice) .

2. Spiced Apple Cookies

A fun way to incorporate fruit into your diet. Well, they're not really healthy, like at all; but they are delicious. A few cookies on a breezy fall night with a horror film is always a great thing.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

For all of us who hate raisins, but love oatmeal cookies. Well now you don't have to pick or bite around the raisins anymore, just sub chocolate chips.

Salted Caramel Mocha 

For all of my chocolate lovers, there's a special place in my heart for you. If you're wondering, yes, this is a name of a Starbucks drink, but it's better in warm, fresh cookie form of course.

Pumpkin Chai Snickerdoodles

You always need something pumpkin in the fall. I love pumpkin and cinnamon together, so these are the perfect flavors to mix for fall.

Certain flavors are just made for fall, so take advantage and use it as an excuse for as long as you can. Enjoy!

We Are a Human Race, Not A Political Race

It is time to we stop spreading our culture of hate.


Hate is a word that has begun to describe this generation and the actions of people in the world. Hate has crept into public speeches, social media, hanging presidents/decapitated heads and our hearts. It has blinded how we see one another and tainted the words we use to talk to others. Political parties are turning into cat fights over who is right and frankly ruining any chance of unity in this country.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.


You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.
