White Balance for Perfect Cookie Color Palettes


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…

Sugar and Spice Cookies


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…

Gin and Tonic Cookies


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…

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…

Super Bowl Cookies


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…

Cookie Decorating Essentials (WFMW)


After sharing the graduation cake I decorated over the weekend, I promised to share a few tips for decorating cookies with royal icing. I’m certainly not an expert, but I’ve decorated my share of cookies over the past few years, and I’ve found a few simple essentials that work for me. I wouldn’t decorate a single…

Graduation Cookie Cake (Take Two)


I don’t have a new recipe for you today… I have a pretty good reason, though!  I was busy last week working on a graduation cake and cookies. I ended up putting most of my kitchen energy (what kitchen energy I actually have these days!) into the cake and cookies.

Polka Dot and Plaid Shamrock Cookies (WFMW)


It’s been quite a while since I shared some cookies with you… So, today I thought I’d change all of that! I’ve been in a bit of a cookie funk lately… I just haven’t had the time and energy to do much decorating.  And, for me, it’s one of those things that the longer I…

Gingerbread Love Shack for Valentine’s Day (WFMW)


Valentine’s Day is less than a week away… While I can’t say that I have gotten anything for my hubby yet (oops, sorry honey!), I have done some Valentine’s Day baking. So, while I may not be the person to help you with great gift ideas for that special someone (in fact, if you have…
