Inevitably when I go to the grocery store I buy both lemons and limes. They’re a staple (at least in my head) along with parsley, potatoes, and onions. Unfortunately the poor lemons seem to always get the short-end of the stick. While the limes find frequent homes in a sparkly glass of Hendricks Gin, lately […]

As an unabashed peanut butter addict who frequently can be caught eating spoonfuls of the sweet and salty goop directly from the jar I am by default also a fan of Nutter Butter cookies. This recipe caught my eye quite some time ago and I found it yesterday while browsing through my extensive collection of […]

After channeling my inner Mickey Rourke and physically wrestling the remains of the Oh!

I often make raspberry lemon muffins on the weekends, and they were on […]

I hope you didn’t actually think you could escape the holiday season without a pink cookie from me. These pink Christmas Tree sugar cookies are decorated with my traditional butter based frosting and sprinkled with a light dusting of delicate silver icing sugar.

I suppose the cookie cutters I used to make these sugar cookie Santas and trees haven’t quite made the cut-off yet, but I calculate that they’re at least 23 years old, possibly more. With the exception that I used my own favorite recipe, […]

First of all, these taste spectacular! If you only make one cookie to share with friends and family this holiday season then this recipe definitely would get my vote. I liken them to something along the lines of a soft and chewy Girl Scout Thin Mint. Andes Crème de Menth candies are added to the […]

I impulse shopped Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips at Target a few weeks ago when I was supposed to be picking out my holiday cards. I secretly thought they would be disgusting but I bought them anyway. Well surprise surprise: these baking bits are about as far from awful on the spectrum of delicious as […]

Tonight I baked three different kinds of cookies for our departmental holiday party. I don’t recall ever making that many cookies at once. It actually ended up being sort of a zen-like kitchen experience. Dough was prepared in the KitchenAid. Dough was placed in the refrigerator to chill. Mixing bowl was washed. Next dough was […]
