White Balance for Perfect Cookie Color Palettes

2014-01-27_WhiteBalancingIcing-6

Want to know a secret? I hate to color icing. I know, hate is a strong word… But, I’ve been known to go to great lengths to come up with cookie ideas that use only white icing. (Remember my Christmas cookies from this past year?)  Seriously, though… Who wants to spend an hour coloring icing…

Today is a special day… Why? Because today we are having a baby shower for Jamie from My Baking Addiction! I’ve “known” Jamie for quite a while… I think I probably knew her before she knew me. You see, she is a far more fabulous blogger than I am… She is the authority on all…

Merry Christmas!

It’s amazing to think that another year has come and gone. This year has flown by for me, faster than any year I can remember. It’s been an amazing and wonderful year, but it’s also been a tough year. There have been many milestones and even more sleepless nights. There have been smiles and laughter…

This past weekend was the fourth annual Big Summer Potluck. I’ve attended all four years, and, with the exception of last year, I’ve decorated cookies each year to take for the potluck. Since the gin and tonic has been the unofficial drink of the get together, I decided to use that as my inspiration for…

Trail Mix Cookie Bars

I’ve been making a lot more cookie bars lately… And brownies. It turns out that baking cookies with an infant isn’t quite as easy as I once thought. Previously I thought that cookies were a given in the kitchen… How hard is it to bake cookies? You just slap some dough on a sheet pan…

How To Make Cookie Pops (WFMW)

No one tells you how much adjusting you really have to do when you have a baby. Sure, I didn’t expect my jeans to fit for a few months (ahem… or maybe more than a few), but I don’t think I was told how long it takes for the rest of life to get back…

Friday nights aren’t what they used to be at my house.  For a while, Friday night was date night, and my hubby and I would go out for cocktails and dinner on Friday nights.  But, as you might imagine, we don’t go out nearly as much as we used to these days. Ok, we don’t…

Are you ready for the Super Bowl? I always get excited to watch the Super Bowl, but as a Baltimore Ravens fan, I am especially excited to watch the big game this year.  So, naturally, I decided to decorate some cookies for the occasion. I contemplated making some Ravens cookies, but I did that a…
