White Peppermint Cookies

Cookies are such a big part of the holidays for me. I love making a festive array and creating a cookie platter for guests to enjoy… And of course you need to have something come Christmas Eve, for the big guy in red! I hear he’s partial to the homemade ones *shhh* 😉

Dark Chocolate and Orange Sandwich Cookies

Halloween is fast approaching! Have you chosen your costume and stocked up on candy yet?… I haven’t dressed up since I was a kid.

Pumpkin Spice Crinkle Cookies

Last fall, I posted a cookie recipe. At that time, we had just moved and I was in the midst of unpacking.

Even today (knowing fully well that some people actually do), I find the concept difficult to wrap my head around… So it’s ironic that I would find myself partnered with someone who was, and still is, one of those raisin lovers.

Pistachio Pudding Sugar Cookies

Do you use Pinterest? I swear, I could get lost in there for hours! One minute I’m checking out the latest in DIY deodorants (and yes, I totally make my own), and the next thing I know, I’m being sucked into the vortex of holistic home remedies! That’s why I limit myself, just enough time to get some “pinspiration”, but not enough time to wonder what happened to my day.
