Thanksgiving Cookies

November 26, 2019 in cookies, Uncategorized - No Comments

Hello! I just wanted to take a moment to wish you a happy Thanksgiving!  This year I am hosting, which means I will be baking a turkey instead of baking a dessert.  But that’s okay.  It’s nice to switch things up a bit. I made these cookies last weekend and…

Surprise Muffins

November 19, 2019 in muffins - No Comments

When I was learning to bake, this was one the first recipes I mastered.  It comes from a Betty Crocker kid cookbook, and I think my parents gave it to me as a Christmas present one year.  I devoured that cookbook, begging my parents often to be able to make…

Woodland Sugar Cookies

October 14, 2019 in cookies - No Comments

  Where I live, summer didn’t gradually bleed into fall.  It abruptly ended with no warning and no gently goodbye.  Usually our Septembers are cool in the morning, reaching mid-70s by the end of the day, but the week after Labor Day fall came in with the bang.  I think…

Dinosaur Birthday Party

August 16, 2019 in Chilled Desserts, cookies, misc. - No Comments

My son, Matthew, turned 9 last month and wanted to have a dinosaur-themed birthday party.  Specifically Jurassic Park. (For his 5th birthday, we had a dinosaur party, but wanted to make this one different.) He really wanted decorated cookies and dirt cake.  I made T-Rexs, triceratops, and brontosauruses.  Trying to make…

Easter Dessert Ideas

April 17, 2019 in misc. - 1 Comment

I still haven’t figured out exactly what dessert I am going to make for Easter dinner, but I have an idea.  Well, a few ideas.  Okay, scratch that.  I haven’t decided because I struggle making decisions.  My husband loves lemon, my mom loves chocolate, but few in my family love…

Lemon Bars

April 3, 2019 in bars - No Comments

Well, spring has definitely sprung.  Our magnolia trees have started blooming and the daphnia is sweetly perfuming our backyard.  When I take my early morning walks before work, (and I mean like 5:30 early!),  I hear the melody of a chorus of birds.  Nature is clearly coming back to life…

Meringue Mint Cookies

March 8, 2019 in cookies - 3 Comments

As I write this, it is snowing outside.  For the Pacific Northwest, this is weird March weather.  It’s not sticking, but it is pretty watching it come down.  Winter weather always has me craving to bake more in the kitchen (homemade bread anyone?) and to try new things. This recipe…

Valentine Sugar Cookies

February 11, 2019 in cookies - 2 Comments

All the local meteorologists predicted 2-12 inches of snow this weekend.  I thought that if I was going to be snowed in, what better way to use the “snow day” than decorate cookies?   Watching the snow fall, as I decorated cookies with my kids, seemed like an ideal way to…
