Christmas Sugar Cookies (and last-minute inspiration!)

Written on December 24, 2012 at 4:15 PM, by

I made you treats. It’s me, your neighbor who doesn’t come around as much as she used to. I’m ringing your doorbell and standing on your front porch in a scarf, holding out a plate of Christmas cookies made just for you. Merry Christmas! What are your Christmas plans? Going anywhere? Staying home? Big dinner?Continue Reading

The time has come. I can’t not share this recipe with you. (Oof. Double negative.) These outrageously yummy blondie bars are my way of saying thank you. Thank you for sticking with me. I’ve put this little blog on the back burner so I can focus on chasing my little boys around. But you’re here!Continue Reading

This past weekend, I fixed my hair (and put on makeup), handed the kids over to a babysitter, and attended LTUE, a local sci-fi/fantasy writing convention. Is it a complete surprise that I love to write? Maybe not. Is it a complete surprise that I’ve got a geek streak? Maybe not. My husband, being aContinue Reading

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why yes, I already have a chocolate chip cookie recipe on this blog. It’s good of you to remember. That recipe isn’t too bad, but it’s buried in the darkest corner of the archives, and if you were to poke around a bit, you’d see that it’s the oldest post on the site – backContinue Reading

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies (and an announcement!)

Written on July 8, 2011 at 3:18 PM, by

As far as events go, nothing wins the prize for the highest concentration of cuteness in a single place at a single time quite like a baby shower. Is it possible to NOT decorate cute baby sugar cookies when you’re putting on a cute baby shower to celebrate with the cute pregnant mommy-to-be on theContinue Reading

I didn’t eat very well in college, but I’m entirely confidant that I’m surrounded by other people who also didn’t eat very well in college, so, no judgments here. Mom, if you’re reading this . . . I had lettuce and tomato on my whole grain sandwich today for lunch. A typical day in myContinue Reading

I’m either burned out, or very close to it. I love my kitchen and my mixer and flour bucket. So dearly. But I don’t think I really appreciated the full impact of what I was committing myself to. Twelve straight days of baking and photographing and writing and editing and posting. Good grief! Twelve straightContinue Reading

Chocolate Mint Christmas Cookies

Let’s talk about recycling. I’m all for recycling. If something worked for you once, why not turn it around and get more use out of it? Okay, so this is actually just a sneaky way of saying that I was simply too enamored of these cookies to let it go at a single post. They’reContinue Reading

Christmas Sugar Cookies

Each December I wonder if I’d be happier in my kitchen or away from it. Today, for instance, might have been a good day to kick back and watch the snow fall with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book. Leisurely wrap a few gifts. No dirty dishes. Plenty of counter space. SweetContinue Reading

I’m going to have to cheat. It’s my Twelve Days of Christmas, so I can cheat, just a bit. I know you’ll let me because you’re nice like that. Besides, it’s either that, or stay up ridiculously late(er than I’m already staying up) and post poorly-lit photos . . . bad idea on both counts.Continue Reading
