Before I show you how to make Chocolate Chip n’ Macadamia Nut Cookies, I have exciting news! My husband and I are getting a new apartment in the heart of downtown Boise! And let me tell you, it is SO COOL! We just rented our house (rent started yesterday) and are now we are temporarily living at my in-laws’ guest house (so kind of them!) until our new apartment is ready to be moved in. We are thrilled and cannot wait to get all settled in. This means, Amazing Paleo will now have a new kitchen! I will be sure to take lots of pictures of it for you guys to see. I know great cooking/baking times await me in that place.
So life is a bit busy right now with work, moving, and the new apartment remodeling that we have going on. I will try my best to post at least once a week…until we are all settled in and then I can pick up the pace a bit and have more frequent recipes on the blog for all of you.
Today I am sharing one of my all time favorites…my Chocolate Chip n’ Macadamia Nut Cookies! Our family loves these! We took a bunch with us to the cruise we went to, and they were gone on day one!
Enjoy this paleo cookie treat guys and see you all next week
