  1. Frosted Heart Cookies

    Few things are more therapeutic than mixing colors in a bowl and frosting cookies. These cookies involved only my second time using food coloring and I have to say, I’m kind of hooked on synthetic colors. I’m being only mildly sarcastic here. The truth is, I’ve always believed that food can be both pretty and Continue…

    What we’re looking at here folks is sugar and butter, layered with sugar. Because that is what this holiday is all about!

  2. Chocolate-Filled Chocolate Macarons (The French Way)

    At some point, it became expected that whenever I would go home to visit my family, I would bring a delicious baked good (or goods). In some ways, it was a self-imposed challenge. Once I started writing about food, every family get-together was an opportunity to try a new recipe. Besides, baked goods traveled much Continue…

  3. Sparkling Ginger Chewies- Happy Holidays!

    I’ve been thinking about these sparking, chewy ginger cookies since I made them last week, and I knew I couldn’t let this week pass by without posting them. It seems that cookies have been on my mind a lot. Since I arrived in Ohio this past weekend, I’ve been craving cookies big-time. Everywhere I go, Continue…

  4. Bon Appetit’s Holiday Bakeoff and a Little Request

    Hi, friends. I am really excited to be a part of Bon Appetit’s Holiday Bakeoff (really really excited, if I’m being honest!). Seeing my Chocolate Oatmeal Walnut Cookies amongst some delectable desserts from some of my favorite bloggers is pretty fun. If you’re so inclined, please cast your vote for my cookies. You’ll need to Continue…

  5. I’m Going to Tell You About These Cookies…

      This is my last week of work before the wedding. I’m not getting married quite yet, but I am going to enjoy a week of catching up with friends, tying up loose ends, and relaxing. A co-worker asked me today if I’d have a hard time ‘letting go.’ I didn’t hesitate to reply: ‘absolutely Continue…

  6. Alfajores: Dulce De Leche Sandwich Cookies

    I’ll be honest with you–I’ve been hoarding these cookies from you for quite some time. Two weeks, to be exact. These cookies are a little prelude to a little trip that Matt and I will be taking in September to Argentina, for our honeymoon. We had been planning to go to Argentina this past Spring, Continue…

  7. A Triple Chocolate Cookie in Place of Your 70% Bar

    Saying that I ‘like’ chocolate is very much an understatement if there ever was one. I eat chocolate every single day. Do you think I’m lying? Go ahead and fumble through my pantry and you’ll find at least one (but usually two to three) bars of Lindt 70%. Or Dagoba. Or some Scharffen Berger. Dolfin Continue…

  8. Get Out Your Stretch Pants: Best Cookies Yet!

    I might be talking these cookies up too much, but considering I ate five in one day, I think it’s fair to say they are really, really, that good. I first read about them on Adam Roberts’ blog, The Amateur Gourmet. I’d heard about the Baked cookbook from a couple of other food bloggers, and Continue…

  9. Post Christmas Gingerbread Men

    Hello there. I hope you had a lovely holiday. I sure did. I’m still in Ohio, where it is currently sixty some degrees. No snow. Some wind. Pretty unimaginable for the middle of December, but I guess I can’t complain. We’ve been getting in plenty of family time in with Matt’s family, but also doing Continue…

  10. Big Weekend; Small Cookie (or Two)

    I’ve been looking forward to this past weekend for months. You see, December is my favorite time these days, when all of my high school and Bay Area-based college friends stream back into town, my parents’ home feels like my old high school meeting ground and we all fall back into history in the best Continue…

  11. Holiday Potluck Recipes

    December has, over the years, become one of my favorite months. Ever since I passed the school days and could no longer look forward to summer vacation, December has become my closest reincarnation of summer break. Every weekend is packed with holiday parties, friends popping into town, dinner get togethers, red Starbucks cups. It’s hard Continue…
