RAWR-some Father’s Day Cookies

You know what is totally out of my league? Boy stuff. Yep, super heroes...monsters...trucks...dirt...and dinosaurs. All boy stuff, all out of my league. Recently this has become more and more obvious as my girls grow older. While I do have two brothers growing up one was ten years older then me and one was ten years younger then me so I really wasn't ever aware of the "boy stuff" they were into. ... [ read more... ]

Pajamas and Popcorn Cookies

I have good news, and I have bad news. Let's start with the bad news, because I like to end on a positive note. So first off, I don't have a tutorial for you today. I know…BOO what kind of blogger are you! Where's the info, the meat, the potatoes, and why on earth am I sharing photos with no tutorial?! But wait…don't click off just yet! ... [ read more... ]

Bakery Style Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Gah - guys I'm in a total funk again. Turns out, I just might be the queen of funk. And no, not in a totally rad hip hop kinda way.

Butterfly Cookies

Sometimes you do crazy things for your kids, in the name of love. Like for instance, make them butterfly cookies that take you well over 18+ hours to make (I stopped counting at 18). Wait, wait, wait...don't go! I promise these pretty cookies aren't THAT hard, nor will they take you 18 hours. Unless...of course you have twins. And you thought they would be a great idea to make for both class ... [ read more... ]

Valentine’s Emoji Cookies

I hope you don't mind if I get a little emoji-nal on you today. Ok not really, I just wanted to use that cheesy pun. But I am pretty excited to share these cookies with you? Why? Because I tried something new to me, fondant covered cookies! I'm a little guilty of getting too comfortable and reluctant to try something new sometimes. I'm often the last one to jump on a bandwagon…like the person ... [ read more... ]

Merry & Bright Christmas Bulb Cookies

2014 is coming to a close, and if I were to sum up our year in two words it would be "Chaos & Crazy". Not that it's been a bad year, it has been a great year but so much going on in every which way, hardly a moment to stop. This year we're closing out the year with a bang as I wrap up the final edits of the book (eeekkkkkkkkk) and we fight our traditional Christmas flu. Yep, it's one of our crazy ... [ read more... ]

Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies

I simply can not wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is just days way. Days! It seems like no matter how hard I try, there is just never enough time at Christmas time. My "to do" list is always twice as long as the hours in the day, especially this year. Normally I have all sorts of goodies stored up in the freezer to easily pull out and serve at events as they come and go. Just has not ... [ read more... ]
