Pan Banging Cookies

April 25, 2021 in cookies - No Comments

I had never heard of these cookies before, but I was a little intrigued when I came across this recipe while reading The Wall Street Journal a month or two back. Usually we all want light and fluffy cookies, but purposely deflating them? Hmmm…that was interesting. So I decided to…

Easter Sugar Cookies

March 27, 2021 in cookies - No Comments

Easter is almost here! I am excited to fill some eggs with candy and some baskets with goodies. It’s so fun to watch my kids run around hunting for the hidden eggs in the yard. These pictures of my kids were from last year. The weather actually cooperated for once,…

Love Bugs

February 12, 2021 in cookies - No Comments

Valentine’s Day is almost here! It’s not my favorite holiday, but I do really like it. My plan Sunday is to make homemade cards with the kids and drink hot cocoa bombs. (Yes, I did jump on that bandwagon. I’ll work on a tutorial post to share with it in…

Valentine Cookies

January 23, 2021 in cookies - No Comments

My husband loves puns. When he shares his witty, word concoction, I just roll my eyes. I shouldn’t. I should be more supportive as a wife and laugh, saying, “That was so funny! You’re so quick on your feet to think of that!” When I was making these sugar cookies,…

Christmas Sugar Cookies

December 25, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

It’s Christmas Eve! I meant to have this post written and up a few days ago. Ha! Life gets busy, right? I spent yesterday and today in the kitchen making cinnamon rolls, cookies, and a red velvet white chocolate cheesecake cake for dessert on Christmas. It feels good to slow…

Thanksgiving + Fall Cookies

November 24, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

So my husband and I moved from Portland, Oregon to Charlotte, North Carolina in August, and, as one might imagine when moving, one of the biggest differences is the weather. Fall in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful, but short. The leaves change color and then fall off the trees in…

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

October 24, 2020 in bars - 3 Comments

Happy fall! I am sure you’re thinking, “Umm, raspberries are so summer, and so not fall. Why this recipe now?” Well, I did make these bars in mid-July, when raspberries in the Pacific Northwest are abundant. And I did start writing this post right after I made them. Then we…

4th of July Dessert Ideas

June 28, 2020 in bars, brownies, cookies, misc. - No Comments

4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. In the Pacific Northwest, it seems to mark a turning point in the weather. It’s like summer has now officially arrived. (Although more times than not, we have low 70-degree weather and FREEZE watching the fireworks.) Another reason I love this…

July 4th Cookies

June 26, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

My husband went to Costco to buy fireworks. As a kid, I loved watching the bright colors pop and sparkle against the night sky and begging my parents to let me have one more sparkler. However, as an adult, while I still like watching fireworks, I can’t stop thinking about…
